Steve Posted May 19, 2020 Report Share Posted May 19, 2020 1 hour ago, Coss said: The US justice chief said Monday he did not expect to investigate either former president Barack Obama or vice president Joe Biden over the 2016 Russia election meddling case, despite President Donald Trump's call for a probe. Attorney General Bill Barr said the original investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election was a "grave injustice" to the president and based on "utterly baseless" suspicions. But he said he aimed to stop a cycle of using the US justice system for what he called political investigations, including of Democrat Obama and Biden, who is Trump's rival in the upcoming presidential vote. Whatever the involvement of Obama or Biden in the Russia collusion probe, Barr said, "based on the information I have today, I don't expect (it) will lead to a criminal investigation of either man." .............. https://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/world/no-criminal-probe-of-obama-or-biden-us-justice-chief/ar-BB14geCK I suppose you could call that, backing off, now that your sponsor is demonstrating fruit loopiness. Because its all bullshit. Trump would actually be ballsy (and stupid enough) to want that. But the Republicans know that everyone is dirty and if they go after a sacred cow, it leaves everyone open. Its the MAD theory in effect. Mutually assured destruction. And there is plenty of dirty laundry the GOP has. This is two things. First, to rile up the base, distract them. Give them something to back the GOP on, someone to hate. Second its Trump changing the narrative from the present situation which isn't good. The Republicans control the White House, Senate and Supreme Court. They have all the power to do whatever they want to, to Obama. If nothing happens it means one of two things. First, it was all bullshit and deflection, which it is and second, (this is the excuse of the minions), its the deep state. If the deep state is that good, where it neutralizes a person and a party that has control over the White House, Senate and Supreme Court, then the Republican party are toothless. I'll go with the deep state since they have that kind of power. Why vote for a Republican who says he'll dismantle the 'deep state' when this is proof they are shooting more blanks than Pattaya punter after a soapy. That's the state of America today. The Democrats are spineless cowards, who will bully their own in primaries (like Sanders and anyone too progressive). but are scared to engage the Republicans because they know the Republicans have no line they will cross and the Republicans have no ethics and morals. None, whatsoever. Biden, as much as much of a doting codger as he is, is slightly better but also shows you how bought off the Democrats are. Not to mention how Bloomberg bought his way in as well. These are also the reasons why America is done as a force it once was. When you have a people electing someone like this, its a sign. Obama is the last gasp for some semblance of maturity. I had issues with him but at least he was an urbane, level headed leader. Bush before him wasn't the brightest bulb but he had standards. There was a certain respect for the office even the worse Presidents had like Nixon as bad as he was. But there is a segment of America who live in their own 'Merica bubble who have never stepped on foreign soil, seen much outside their county or state who follow the pied piper over that ledge waving a flag. With both parties competing to see how much monopoly money it can print to stave off the masses, bailout their donors before it all comes crashing down, its a matter of when not if. The Chinese have their own issues as well but at least they have a plan. America doesn't. It's plan is to act in the moment of every crisis with almost total disregard for the intermediate or long term effects. Law of unforseen consequences in effect.
