It Just Keeps Getting Worse for Trump: Barr Voluntarily Testified More than Once and Was ‘Very Helpful’
By Jason Miciak January 23, 2022
There are dozens of witnesses that can do immense damage to Trump, there are perhaps under a half dozen that can damned near convict him themselves. One of that select group not only voluntarily cooperated with the committee, but testified more than once, was tremendously helpful, and just happens to be an absolutely brilliant lawyer, one who would be looking for ways to keep as much culpability on Trump and others, and away from himself, as possible.
Bill Barr. And lest anyone think we only called him a brilliant attorney now that he’s working against Trump, we suggest you re-read our “goodbye” series, in which we shredded Barr while also saying he was one of the best attorneys on Earth and knew better.
Bill Barr knew exactly when to cut bait and get the fck out of that grease fire before he truly was so deep that he couldn’t escape. He was asked to investigate whether there was fraud in the election. He took the amount of time one would expect in such a situation, where time was of the essence. He announced the findings of his investigation before his meeting with the man who would have a five-year-old meltdown, and then got out, probably knowing exactly where this was headed.
That conversation with Trump, where Trump was furious that Barr did not find fraud, may prove to be one of the most important elements of the investigation against Trump. Bill Barr might easily be able to testify that Trump didn’t care whatsoever, whether there actually was fraud. He needed a report that gave him something – and that would prove Trump’s state of mind fairly early after the investigation, which will be critical when it comes to his state of mind when telling Pence to just get it back to the states for more investigation, Trump didn’t care what it found. Same with Georgia, Trump wouldn’t care what it found.
No one at this site knew Barr had already been deposed by the Committee, if it had been known at all, it was known to very few, and again – this witness is very very dangerous to Trump. He had to keep himself clean and keep all blame for anything on Trump.
It just keeps getting worse, and Trump best get used to this feeling.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren: “We are uncovering a plot, it looks like, to overturn the peaceful transfer of power, to overturn our system of government. We’re going to do our job despite bizarre threats such as new gingrich’s weird comments.”

On Barr’s cooperation with Jan. 6 committee, Zoe Lofgren told us: “It was more than once and it was a voluntary discussion with our staff attorneys and we appreciate his willingness to help us find the truth.”
