As the Stalinesque carnival that is the corrupt January 6 Committee unfolds, former Trump Attorney General Bill Barr said this to the Committee, bold print for emphasis supplied:
“I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the president was bulls—,” Barr said of his conversations with Trump. “And, you know, I didn’t want to be a part of it. And that’s one of the reasons that went into me deciding to leave when I did.
“I was somewhat demoralized because I thought, ‘Boy, if he really believes this stuff, he has lost contact with, he’s become detached from reality if he really believes this stuff,’” he continued. “And on the other hand, you know, when I went into this and would you know, tell him how crazy some of these allegations were, there was never an indication of interest in what the actual facts were.”
Hmmm. In light of all the evidence out there — that would be “actual facts” — about the corruption of the 2020 elections, it would in fact appear that it is the former attorney general who was “detached from reality” about the 2020 election.
Mr. Barr would do himself and his credibility on this subject a world of good if he would simply take the time to read author and Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway’s bestseller on the 2020 election: Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections. Mollie, a superb investigative reporter, uses exhaustive detail to document that “there are abundant reasons to suspect the election was rigged at every step.”
Those “abundant reasons to suspect the election was rigged at every step” include the following 2020 events just from my home state of Pennsylvania alone:
- The Trump campaign in Philadelphia, per a Commonwealth Court judge, was deprived of its “statutory right to have poll watchers present at places where electors cast and submit votes in person” and in “unparalleled” numbers.
- Ballot harvesting is not allowed in Pennsylvania. Yet Philadelphia allowed it. The notoriously partisan Democrat Attorney General Josh Shapiro — now the Democrats’ nominee for governor in the 2022 election — said that objecting to ballot harvesting was now suddenly “illegal voter intimidation.”
- The Democrat Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled the “Democrats in Philadelphia did not have to allow the Trump campaign any observation of the vote counting.”
- “The Trump campaign had a legal right to observers within a reasonable distance from the counting,” Mollie writes. “Why did election officials in overwhelmingly Democratic Philadelphia go out of their way to deprive the campaign of that right?”
On and on goes her decidedly detailed production of the myriad ways the 2020 election was rigged, producing facts that the former attorney general simply chose to ignore.
Not to mention that Mr. Barr simply ignores Pennsylvania’s repeated history of voter fraud in its elections, fraud which I have earlier documented, as here. In fact, only last week the Department of Justice headlined this:
Former U.S. Congressman and Philadelphia Political Operative Pleads Guilty to Election Fraud Charges
But there’s more to this refusal by Mr. Barr to recognize the corruption in 2020 — not to mention Pennsylvania’s dismal history — than his actions, or lack thereof, alone. In truth, it touches exa…
