    Typical and not worth responding to.

    And my point never mentioned democracy. It is, however, laughable to say that the group that outnumbers you in the U.S. is anti-U.S.

    If you don't like it you should gerrymander and engage in voter suppression--Oh wait, your side already does that.

    That's like saying "if you take away the cup your cup doesn't hold water".

    Why go full blown crazy with your response?

    Please describe to me what Clinton did that the framers had in mind for removal from office.

    And contrast with current guy, whose actions make the framers look like the Amazing Kreskin. Only there's nothing funny about it.

    Just saw that the signatures are now over 2,000 calling for Barr to resign. I hope they have better luck than the 11,000+ of us that signed the petition to tell WDC to get off their collective a**es and do their freaking jobs about the RE catastrophe that was brewing. While I believe Barr should "get to steppin" I'll believe it when I see it, and I'm not holding my breath.

    I don't think this is going to convince any of the 1,100 to change their minds ...

    I
    It's over 2,000. The number is almost beyond belief. I was going to say that if Barr had any integrity, but I stopped there. He has none, nor do those who think he should remain in office.

    He won't go anywhere until the reality show deems it in their interest to show him the exit.

    More than 2,000. Think about how remarkable that is. How completely out of bounds these professionals think Barr's behavior is, and to see the DOJ that they worked in being defiled like this ...
    Here's a piece by Donald Ayer, who served as United States Attorney and Principal Deputy Solicitor General in the Reagan administration and as Deputy Attorney General under George H.W. Bush.

    Barr stays. He will find out what happened with Crossfire Hurricane and hopefully indictments will follow. The Derp State is pushing hard to have him removed because they know what he is going to expose

    Than
    Thanks. It'll be interesting to see how this ends, and how SCOTUS will rule on several key financial disclosure cases.

    I know I sound like a broken record, but...Crooked RE developer strategy 101. So easy a caveman can do it. The hardest part of doing it is to accept the sleazery it takes. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if you face no downside risk, you can do anything. Kinda like grabbing women by the hoo hah and shooting someone in broad daylight on 5th Ave. Even in the unlikely even you get busted, scratch a check and go full on Sgt. Shultz and you're good to go. Get up and do it again, amen. Rinse and repeat. How so many people don't have a problem with this is plain scary for us and the generations coming behind us.

    Does anyone have any ethical and moral standards anymore? Apparently not enough. But I guess ethical and moral standards are for snowflakes and snivveling socialist libbies who want evertying for free, according to some folks.

    Shane, I'm curious if you really believe this or you're just going for the standard defense no matter what. First of all, these are all former prosecutors and by definition, not deep state.
    But beyond that, why do you think they all signed this letter calling for Barr's resignation?

    One correction, the Senate that voted on the charges against Clinton actually had a Republican majority. They probably voted not to convict because the Senators who voted not to convict Clinton were actually aware of the elements of the crimes of perjury and obstruction of justice. And by the way Clinton wasn't convicted because 10 Republicans voted not to convict him on the perjury charge and five Republicans voted not to convict him on the obstruction of justice charge.

    I would also add that a number of the former prosecutors were political appointees appointed by Republican presidents.

    Unless Barr himself says or does something to trigger Trump, he will serve as the Donald's AG and de facto Roy Cohn as long as Trump remains in office.
