Will Barr clean up the DOJ?

February 18, 2019

William Barr certainly has the past credentials to be the Attorney General.

He also has a long history of working closely with many of the people who apparently tried, and may still be trying to effect a “soft coup.”

Many of those people are no longer employed by DOJ and/or the FBI, but Mueller and Rosenstein are still there.

Based on Andrew McCabe’s “60 Minutes” book promotion interview, there was and is a pool of rot within the DOJ and the FBI.

It remains to be seen if Barr will do more than give a “don’t be naughty” speech to the employees, or actually  take action against the people who sought to invalidate the votes of 63 million people.

As we have said many times, the reason Donald Trump became President was because people instinctively felt the government was not just ineffective but corrupt. Nothing that has happened since the election has disabused them of that idea.

Trump certainly hasn’t been the perfect President, whatever that is.

Still, one wonders if he had received even a tenth of the support he should have been entitled to, how many fewer malaprops would he have made?

And regardless of those, he has done what few politicians even try to do and that is of course, keep the promises he made to the best of his ability.

It’s nearly impossible to take anything McCabe says as truthful, but the President may have even had Cabinet members working against him.

Democrats seem to be convinced Trump will not win a second term, though they have been known to be wrong before.

If that happens, as one person put it, if a Democrat or Socialist wins “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”

Or, what goes around, comes around.
