Barr has bigger fish to fry than the texting duo of Strzok and Page--and one of those fish is named Barack Obama.
That observation was based on Bill Barr's revelation, a week ago, that what has grabbed his personal attention in the Russia Hoax is the January 6, 2017, Trump Tower meeting:
According to Hemmer, the one specific example that Barr kept returning to was the Trump Tower meeting on January 6, 2017, between disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and Trump, when Comey tried to blackmail, er, when Comey briefed the President Elect about the salacious claims of the Steele "dossier". Weirdly, all those salacious claims appeared in the press within days of the meeting.
And, not at all coincidentally, that meeting came the very day after a White House summit or council of war was held against the president elect--a meeting that featuring the top level of the outgoing Obama administration and the key holdovers. To reprise:
Michael Goodwin draws on Comey's book, which begins to look very much like an initial defense and threat against Obama himself:
Comey revealed there was a meeting in the White House on the previous day, Jan. 5, to plan the briefing. He said Obama approved of him telling Trump about the prostitutes.
Obama’s presence was also acknowledged in a strange memo Susan Rice wrote to herself on Inauguration Day. In a “Dear Diary” tone, she insisted Obama did not push for “anything from a law-enforcement perspective,” demanding only that everything be done “by the book.” Hmmm.
Rice also puts Joe Biden and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the room.
More likely, the meeting aimed to entrap Trump and overturn the election.
Whatever the aim, Barr is on the case. Prepare for bombshells.
Don Surber, tracking Goodwin (Comey's book implicates Obama), provides the passage from Comey's book:
"Obama turned his head to his left and looked directly at me. He raised and lowered both of his eyebrows with emphasis, and then looked away. . . . To my mind his Groucho Marx eyebrow raise was both subtle humor and an expression of concern. It was almost as if he were saying, 'Good luck with that.'"
Who suspects that Barr has bigger fish to fry now than the obsessively texting duo of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, that he's aiming for Obama? Goodwin clearly does, and so do I.
Today Paul Sperry observes:
Sshh, hear that? It's the deafening silence of Barack Obama, who's suddenly gone to ground as #SpyGate scandal draws nearer & calls for him to be questioned under oath grow. No US speaking events, appearances. Organizing for Action (OFA) quietly removed from his website. Fewer Tweets
When your best defense appears to be to keep your mouth shut, I'd say you're in trouble. And no amount of demented impeachment chatter will change the legal facts on the ground. The Left/Progs have been frantically manipulating the control levers, as dutifully reported by their note takers in the media. Reality hasn't changed.
