Congress prepares for a battle over secret grand jury evidence in Russia inquiry
A historic clash is brewing between Congress and Attorney General William Barr over some of the most sensitive evidence in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
Barr is reviewing Mueller's final report and said he hopes to reveal much of it by mid-April. House Democrats want it sooner. They signaled that their biggest fight won't be over how quickly they can read the report but whether they get access to some of the evidence Mueller gathered that did not lead to criminal charges.
The fight centers on evidence obtained using grand juries. Barr said federal law requires him to keep it secret, even though the government has disclosed it in previous high-profile cases. The evidence is particularly sensitive because grand juries give prosecutors the power to force reluctant witnesses to testify....
"Christopher, I agree. It's like a hijacking of American government. It's also disheartening. Sometimes I wonder if liberals present the really crazy stuff just to wear us down... later on when Americans get used to these potentially absurd policies they will accept as mainstream thought."
Hey Foster, I'd say that their really crazy stuff, eventually wearing people down, would be more of a by-product of their lunacy. I think they've been in control for so long, and still can't believe they lost the election, even after doing their best to, oh, what's the word I'm searching for..oh yeah, cheat...that they, in their rage, finally lost all emotional control, and have simply exposed who they've always been below the surface. I'd liken them to a child of wealthy parents, who always spoiled, never disciplined, and never said, "No". One day, a new nanny says, "No! You can't have that!", and the petulant child just goes wild with rage, starts throwing stuff all around, stomps their feet, and falls prostrate to the floor, pounding their little fists, banging their legs, and screaming bloody murder.
I believe they want to make the USA more like very secular and socialist France through a similar revolution. There is no "innocent until proven guilty" clause in the French constitution.
This kind of behavior toward Christians is something we can expect:
Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which fight against the soul, and have your conversation honest among the Gentiles, that they which speak evil of you as of evil doers, may by your good works which they shall see, glorify God in the day of visitation. - 1 Peter 2:11-12
Part of all that is going on is to get people to become ok with the idea that accusation is as good as conviction. Just because there was no evidence doesn't mean there wasn't any collusion, etc. Really? Only to the leftist mentality. Notice how many accusers come out of the woodwork whenever someone is appointed to something? Even Dem candidate Joe Biden is accused of something, though not a Republican. How can this be? How about he isn't far enough left for the radical nut cases taking over the Democrat party? Totalitarians don't like the idea that one is innocent until proved guilty.
Christopher I agree. It's like a hijacking of American government. It's also disheartening. Sometimes I wonder if liberals present the really crazy stuff just to wear us down... later on when Americans get used to these potentially absurd policies they will accept as mainstream thought.
A farce like I've never seen, and led by a whole new era of progressive, anything goes, hipocrites, who live according to a duel set of laws...one set of laws for them, and one for everyone else. Attorney General, Barr, by law, has to keep certain portions of the report, secret, and by law, must redact, yet, these above the law hipocrites are demanding the full, unredacted report, or it means that Barr is hiding something? What a joke these people are. Mueller really pulled a fast one in his last ditch effort to stick it to Trump, and that was: Our investigation found no evidence of collusion, but that doesn't mean there wasn't any collusion". Unreal.
The one and only agenda the Democrats have had over the past three years is to investigate Trump, and that's literally it. They've done absolutely nothing for the American people, have accomplished nothing, whatsoever, and have made it their mission to fight against every single thing that Trump has tried to do to make America great again. I sure hope the American people are seeing all that we see, becaise I just can't imagine a liberal victory in 2020, especially considering how mad, and drunk with power they've all become. Lunacy.
