The Morning Briefing: A.G. Barr is Getting 'Inadequate' Answers
[PJ] An interview with Attorney General Bill Barr will air on Fox News this morning.
"I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions and I've found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I've gotten don't hang together, in a sense I have more questions today than when I first started," Barr told Fox News' Bill Hemmer in an interview set to air Friday on "America's Newsroom."

"What doesn't hang together?" Hemmer asked.

"Some of the explanations of what occurred," Barr said.

"Why does that matter?" asked Hemmer.

"People have to find out what the government was doing during that period. If we're worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale," Barr responded.

Barr added, "I'm not saying that happened but it's something we have to look at."

Inadequate, you say?

Barr was interviewed by Hemmer in El Salvador, where he will address the migrant crisis.

Trump 'deserves' Khashoggi treatment, Maher guest Fran Lebowitz says before backpedaling
[FOXNEWS] Liberal author Fran Lebowitz went to the extreme Friday night during an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher," suggesting that President Trump should not only be impeached but killed.

Lebowitz began by saying she felt "plagued" by Trump's presidency and "shocked" by what she claimed was criminal behavior by Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the Mueller report.

But when she was asked about impeachment, Lebowitz did not think that was enough punishment for the president, who has not been charged with any crimes.

"Certainly, he deserves to be impeached. I mean, impeachment is just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves," Lebowitz said. "Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, 'We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that news hound, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.'"

Nancy Pelosi: ‘We Have Never Not Said There Was a Crisis’ at U.S.-Mexico Border
[BREITBART] House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi
Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House, It's not her fault when they lose, but it is when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... momentss...
(D-CA) falsely claimed Wednesday that Democrats have "never" denied that there is a "crisis" on the U.S.-Mexico border ‐ a statement directly contradicted by the words of multiple party leaders just months ago.

"Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis ‐ there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration," Pelosi stated during her weekly presser in the Capitol Visitor Center on Wednesday.

"What is happening at the border is tragic and we hope to address some of that in the disaster supplemental," the Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Democrat added. "And we understand our responsibility to secure our border."

Pelosi’s remarks bear a stark contrast to what the House Speaker and other Democrats have previously said about the situation at the border, referring to it as a "manufactured crisis" by President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
During a joint presser in January, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
Senator-for-life from New York, renowned for his love of standing in front of cameras. Schumer has been a professional politician since 1975, when disco was in flower. Senate minority leader as of 2017.
(D-NY) accused the president of using the "backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention."

Further, House Majority Leader the mealy-mouthed Steny StinkyHoyer
... Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi's second banana, or plaintain, or mango, or whatever he is...
said of the situation at the Southern border after a visit to El Paso, Texas: "The first, most dramatic thing we found was there is no crisis."

Devin Nunes: Mueller knew there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion on day one
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., went further than Attorney General William Barr to answer the question of when special counsel Robert Mueller knew there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In an interview that aired Friday on Fox News, Barr said he "couldn't say."

Appearing after Barr, Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, was not so hesitant.

#1  From Day one it was known since that was part of the cover-up plan and the get Trump plan.

I can see the crack Mueller team going to work each day after Day 1.

Mueller: What are you guys and gals doing today?
Team: We were just discussing that Bob. The usual things. Brainstorming about how keep this payday going for as long as possible and how to dump Trump. Aside from that some of are going to the zoo for the day. Others are opting for a museum and monument tour. Tomorrow's Friday so TGIF, beer and wine pub hopping.
Mueller: You guys are creative geniuses; sounds good, carry on. I think I can keep this gig going for at least a couple of years. Just remember, we have to come up with some bullshit report at the end of the gig. What's the theme again?
Team: To get Trump and put Hillary in office. We can still do it. We're also working on some motivational song Bob that we can sing at skull sessions. Maybe some games to go along with the singing with prizes.
Bob: Great work. Remember: "Justice is just us."

#3  The entire investigation was about Trump firing Comey.
Despite all of the recommendations from the DOJ IG and Rosenstein himself to fire Comey, the special prosecutor was really appointed to get Trump on obstruction for firing Comey.

There was never a doubt about the collusion issue. That’s why they went on snipe hunts for Manafort and Stone. It is also why the volume 2 was longer than volume one and written to sow confusion and give the Democrats a door to keep the witch hunt alive.
They could have written the exact same report two weeks after they started.
All the grand juries and interviews were for show and to leak things to the press

Warren Calls for Federal Government Intervention to Keep Abortion Legal
[BREITBART] Sen. Elizabeth Gitchie Goomie Liz Warren
...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless..
(D-MA) is calling for Congress to create and pass legislation that would make access to abortion mandatory across the United States.

Like many of her Democrat colleagues running for the 2020 presidential nomination, Warren is reacting to Alabama banning abortion and several other states poised to follow suit, most recently Missouri.

"These bad boy Republican politicians know what the law is ‐ but they don’t care," Warren wrote in a commentary posted on the Medium website on Friday. "They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion, and deny women access to reproductive health care. And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play."

And she blames Trump for the nation’s increasingly pro-life stance, including that he "stole" a seat on the United States Supreme Court.

"I’ll be blunt: It just might work," Warren wrote. "President Trump has packed the courts with extreme, anti-choice judges. Senate Republicans stole a Supreme Court seat and rammed through the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh last year in order to cement an anti-choice majority on the Supreme Court."

My daughter walked into the living room and said : Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, forget my college tuition loan, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out the window, take my TV and my laptop. Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my car, take my house key away, and throw me out.

Then disown me and never talk to me again. And don't forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any charity you choose."

"Holy Smokes," replied the friend, " - she actually said that?"

"Well, she didn't put it quite like that. She actually said : "Dad, meet my new boyfriend, Mohammed. We're going to work together on Elizabeth Warren’s Presidential Campaign."

It's the only issue they've got that plays to their base. The one thing I can figure out is how
all the blacks got sucked in to carrying out Margaret Sanger's genocidal eugenics program for her.

Of course Dems see Black abortions as a real plus cause it takes to long to grow new voters, easier to import them.

Ilhan Omar Says Attacks On Her And Rashida Tlaib Are ‘Designed To Silence' Muslim Voices
[Huffpoo] Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said President Donald Trump and other right-wing politicians and pundits’ attacks on her and fellow Muslim congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) are meant to "silence" Muslims.

"I tell my sister Rashida Tlaib that her and I have the strength to endure any of the mischaracterization or efforts to distort and vilify and mischaracterize our message," Omar said Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
"mischaracterize"...like when her speech is taped and played verbatim. What a repellant hateful lying imbecile
She added that such attacks were "designed to silence, sideline and almost eliminate [the] voice of Muslims from the public discourse."

Omar and Tlaib, who made history in November as the nation’s first Muslim women elected to Congress, have come under repeated attacks from the president, right-leaning pundits and lawmakers since they took office earlier this year.

Omar in particular, who is black, first faced significant controversy for questioning the U.S. relationship with Israel, which some painted as anti-Semitic.

Last month, Trump tweeted out a misleading video splicing together comments Omar made with footage of the Sept. 11 attacks, saying: "WE WILL NEVER FORGET." Despite Omar saying she received more death threats after the tweet, Trump continued his assault, saying people should look at her "anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements."
