Serve in government after watching what he had to endure today, all politics, also at todays hearing Netty Jerry Nadler, caught again spreading more conspiracy theories about the twenty twenty election actually claiming the attorney general bill. Barr President Trump were fueling more violence as a campaign strategy, crazy alert. Take a look. You really cant hide behind legal fiction. This time, Mr Barr, its all out in the open where people can see what you are doing for themselves. The president wants footage for his campaign ads and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered in most of these cities. Their protests have begun to wind down before you marched in and confronted the protesters. He did it here in Washington. You did in Lafayette Square, you expanded to Portland, and now you are projecting fear and violence nationwide in pursuit of obvious political objectives.
Shame on you, Mr Barr. Shame on you! You liar conspiracy, theorist Jerry Nadler here with reaction, former republican congressman, Trey Gowdy. The talking points were all the same. I would call your congressman, but its an insult at this point after todays show, but I am watching it today. They all regurgitate at the same line. You are doing this. There is no violence. Thats a lie. Do all these over one thousand five hundred police officers injured and many more some blinded now I think we are up to sixteen dead. Are my eyes deceiving me. Trey Gowdy of politics is about contrast. We have contrast for November. Do you want the anarchy that you see in Portland and Seattle, or do you want a country where everyone is safe and secure? What you also saw today is what a serious grown up attorney general can do for this country, and it makes me wish
and wonder where we would be if he had been the AG from day. One bill Barr had been the presidents first AG and as for crazy uncle Jerry now, you know why the Democrats kept him hidden in the attic during impeachment. They didnt want him anywhere near impeachment and for anyone who wandered by the chairman of judiciary had no role in impeachment today, you figured it out. You know something he actually said. The idea that this is violence in the cities is a myth claiming then you have all these liberal democratic mayors that have destroyed their cities, both in terms of safety and security. Their educational systems are the worst in the world and they are out there spreading conspiracy theories that one hundred federal agents, in most cases, protecting federal property in federal court houses that somehow they are responsible for the violence. For example, that has been going on in Portland and Seattle forever, six
straight weeks, almost two months now and Portland, not Donald trumps fault, they reject his help, but he does have an obligation to protect federal property and they are doing that job and they are being injured and blinded. As a result, its is number one obligation the number one obligation of government as public safety. What I wish Nadler would do is go find all of the homicide victims and their family members in New York find the parents of that 1 year old that got killed and tell them. The violence is manufactured, go find all the homicide victims in your own backyard and tell them that the violence is manufactured with all we now know in terms of what is out in the public. Hillary Clintons espionage act that I believe, eighteen USC, seven hundred and ninety three, the deleted emails, premeditated fraud on the FISA
court, abuse of power, corruption. By the seventh floor of the FBI, all the names weve often discussed. Do you have Trey Gowdy any doubt that they abuse their power, that they had premeditated fraud on the FISA court and that they sought to impact an election and take down a duly elected president, because I have no doubt and im trying to understand why Durham has taken so long. At this point, I have no doubt I would say two things you mentioned Horowitz twice. I hope your viewers are wondering why the chairman of Judiciary has never called Michael Horowitz as a witness Horowitz found misconduct and law enforcement too. Its called the FBI. Why has the chairman of judiciary not called Michael Horowitz for the past year and a half point number two. I hope John Durham issues. His report and I hope its fair and effect centric, but we dont need John Durham to know whats on the ballot in November.
I dont need John Durham to convince me that the FBI didnt meet any of our expectations. How do you lie to the court when you were told that the evidence is unverifiable says at the top of the FISA warrant? How do you get away with that? I hope you do not. I hope John Durham will prove that lady justice is blindfolded, lets be patient. Justice is.
