Donald Trump has been pressuring his Attorney General (AG) William Barr to bring charges against his political “enemies:” Joe Biden and son, President Barack Obama, and Secretary Hillary Clinton. The thing is, Barr is riding on the bow of the ship of state, Trump-tantic. With the president dancing near an iceberg, the AG is not eager to go down with the vessel.
Another of Trump’s cohorts Senate Homeland Security Committee Chair Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) was demanding more FBI information. Specifically, he wanted to know about a laptop allegedly belong to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter with condemning emails.
Trump’s personal attorney and fixer Rudy Giuliani was hanging out with a Russian spy in Eastern Europe. The former New York mayor claimed the former Vice President was complicit with the information in Hunter Biden’s emails. The New York Post printed those emails. However, the reporters refused to put their names on the article, because they doubted its veracity:
The Washington Post has been unable to verify the authenticity of any of the emails published.
Intelligence officials linked this election-interference campaign to one carried out in 2016 when Secretary Hillary Clinton’s and other Democrats’ emails were hacked and published. These emails immediately took the heat off of Trump hours after his grab-them-by-the-* video was released.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe appeared on Fox Business Channel and said:
‘[T]here is no intelligence that supports [Hunter Biden’s involvement in the emails, but the emails] are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.’
Tyson’s letter followed a “long-standing Justice Department policy:”
‘[T[he FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any ongoing investigation of persons or entities under investigation, including to Members of Congress.’
‘As the Inspector General firmly reminded the Department and the FBI in recent years, this policy is designed to preserve the integrity of all Justice Department investigations and the Department’s ability to effectively administer justice without political or other undue outside influences. Therefore, the FBI cannot provide any additional information in response to the enumerated questions in your letter.’
