Democrats continue to hurl smear after smear at Attorney General William Barr.
They want to discredit Barr before he reveals all of Barack Obama’s “Spygate” secrets.
And now one Nancy Pelosi ally said something about William Barr that will make your blood boil.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is one of the biggest leakers and Russian collusion conspiracy theorists in all of Washington, D.C.
And he has a lot to lose if Barr starts airing the Obama Deep State’s dirty laundry.
So he is trying to preemptively trash Barr as a corrupt partisan in hopes that Americans will dismiss Barr’s findings.
Schiff carried out this strategy at a Council on Foreign Relations event where Schiff called Barr the “second most dangerous man in America.”
Tuesday while speaking at the Council of Foreign Relations, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Attorney General William Barr is “the second most dangerous man in the country.”
“So we find ourselves for the first time with an attorney general who really is the president’s defense lawyer and spokesperson, and who’s quite good at it and has the veneer of respectability to camouflage what he’s doing,” Schiff said during the event that aired on C-SPAN. “He is not the sophist that Giuliani is, he’s much more dangerous. And I think he’s the second most dangerous man in the country for that reason.”
He added, “When you have an attorney general, and I hesitate to use the word, but there’s no other word that seems to apply here, that lies to Congress … that’s a very dangerous situation, and as someone who came out of that department, I spent six years with the Justice Department, and I venerate the department, to think that it is being led by someone this way breaks my heart for the department but is profoundly concerning for the country.”
Barr has long questioned the Russia investigation.
In an interview with CBS News, Barr went so far as to say he did not find the answers he’s received so far about how the FBI started the probe into the Trump campaign to be satisfactory.
So it’s no wonder Schiff is ramping up his smear campaign.
