Brad Johnson on AG Barr and Trump

 

Brenda Johnson it is February the 20th
00:04
of 2020 I’ve been waiting a long time to
00:07
say that and here we are in this very
00:10
odd place where there I mean the first
00:14
casualty of war is truth and it’s
00:19
getting increasingly difficult to tell
00:20
what makes any what’s true even what
00:22
makes any sense in the background noise
00:24
of this increasingly rancorous political
00:28
climate and now what I’m hearing is all
00:30
this stuff about AG bar who we’ve done
00:33
several interviews where you talk about
00:35
him his his profound integrity and his
00:38
effectiveness and it makes sense to me
00:40
that since they couldn’t impeach
00:41
President Trump which I do if they
00:43
expect to do they would then go after AG
00:45
bar it was the next guy in line to take
00:48
down the criminals and the the coup
00:50
plotters and now they’re saying that AG
00:53
bars turned on president I don’t know
00:55
what’s going on can you straighten this
00:56
out for us please yeah sure like first
01:00
things first on that I mean US Attorney
01:02
General bar and this has been talked
01:04
about publicly a great deal but he was
01:06
formerly the US Attorney General so he
01:09
came back in because this is something
01:11
he believes and he saw the system was
01:13
kind of cracked up and is actually
01:14
trying to help get it back online so you
01:18
know he doesn’t have an axe to grind
01:19
isn’t looking for something doesn’t have
01:21
onward ambitions
01:23
I don’t believe to anything so he’s
01:25
doing this for all the right reasons so
01:28
now of course there’s the call I mean
01:31
this is all stuff you and I’ve talked
01:32
about many times we all know what is
01:34
coming everybody knows what’s coming
01:36
there’s indictments on the horizon a lot
01:39
of people are going to be implicated in
01:41
this and it’s going to be
01:42
extraordinarily damaging to a lot of
01:44
people and there’s gonna be people end
01:46
up in jail that’s the way this is gonna
01:47
unfold now as I’ve said many times their
01:51
only way to defend themselves is to try
01:53
and attack president Trump damaged his
01:55
presidency weakened weakened his
01:57
presidency to whatever degree they can
01:58
so they’re desperately doing everything
02:00
they can to do that this is part of that
02:03
same campaign and so now they’re
02:06
attacking Attorney General bar and
02:08
people have called for him to resign and
02:09
so on because that would
02:12
doubt on this this investigation that’s
02:14
being run against all of the fights a
02:16
warrant people the Democrats it’s it’s
02:18
all Democratic apparatchiks party guys
02:21
that are within the federal government
02:22
within the agencies doing the bidding of
02:24
the Democratic Party so this latest
02:27
thing is that on Roger stone and Trump
02:33
came out and said that the sentencing
02:35
was unfair and that it should be looked
02:38
at and in fact that was what happened
02:40
and AG bar the next day came out and and
02:44
and made a comment that you know he’s
02:47
reviewing it in this 9 year 7 to 9 year
02:49
recommended recommended sentencing to
02:52
the judge by the prosecutors was
02:54
unwarranted based on the crimes now one
02:57
of the things for Roger stone to keep in
02:58
mind is he was charged with processed
03:02
crimes so they’re saying okay he lied to
03:05
Congress oh okay but what was he lying
03:08
to Congress about he didn’t lie to
03:09
Congress saying you know Oh covering up
03:13
what Trump did he was lying somewhere in
03:16
the investigation and so it was a
03:19
process issue with no underlying crime
03:23
and so to get seven to nine years for
03:26
that is just really rare I mean he
03:29
didn’t there was nobody killed her hurt
03:31
or anything and it’s just very unusual
03:34
and a Jabbar’s saw that one you know
03:36
this isn’t right
03:37
so before prosecuting attorneys who are
03:41
involved in that case all resigned now
03:42
look just clarify on that to all of
03:45
these guys that are senior prosecutors
03:48
can jump any day of the week and go out
03:50
to private sector law firms who are
03:53
defense law firms and get really good
03:56
jobs they can probably be partners
03:58
depending on who exactly they are so all
04:00
four of these jump now why because they
04:02
knew that the gig was up they were
04:05
caught it was over they were gonna be
04:07
disgraced
04:08
so it’s cut and run and go take your
04:11
golden parachute out and fall into one
04:13
of these defense law firms defense law
04:15
firms where they’re gonna be paid you
04:17
know probably five to ten times what
04:20
they’re earning right and what they were
04:21
earning as a prosecutor so they’ve all
04:23
jumped ship because the new
04:25
these are the rats you know leaving the
04:27
sinking ship they knew that if they’re
04:30
if this was truly looked at closely that
04:32
it was clearly going to be a political
04:34
thing on their part so they were
04:36
disgraced and so they get out before
04:38
their disgrace can become public and
04:39
once they’re gone they’re gone there’s
04:41
nothing Agee Barkin can do unless that
04:43
some of their conduct was actually
04:45
illegal which is conceivable but with
04:47
them gone it’s going to be much harder
04:49
to get in there and dig it out and find
04:51
out the details of it because they don’t
04:52
have to go back and do anything anymore
04:54
they’re gonna work for some private firm
04:55
so that’s what’s going on now people
04:58
have said that when Attorney General
05:00
Barr came out the following day after
05:01
Trump did his tweet and said you know
05:03
these tweets make my job impossible to
05:05
do
05:06
that’s Attorney General bar being
05:08
Attorney General bar that’s all that is
05:10
it’s just he I think that was a very
05:12
genuine straightforward comment that
05:15
when Trump tweets these things it makes
05:18
things much more difficult for him
05:20
that’s true but to suggest for even a
05:22
second that this is some sort of schism
05:25
between President Trump and AG Bart’s
05:27
just not the case AG bar didn’t go there
05:30
because he was best buds with Trump he
05:32
was not and he was a Bush appointee
05:35
previously so he’s out of the you know
05:37
that camp of the Republican Party if you
05:40
will which is large but he’s in there
05:42
because he wants to do a good job and
05:44
the right thing and those were his
05:46
motives for going in like I said he
05:48
wasn’t there for the right reasons and
05:49
so it’s it’s not that type of situation
05:52
now they talk they’re friends you know
05:54
friendly and all of that but you know
05:57
bar doesn’t talk about his cases to
05:58
trump there is that firewall that truly
06:01
exists between the two of them they do
06:03
chat about certain things but AG bar is
06:06
not going in and briefing him on these
06:08
cases Trump doesn’t know what’s coming
06:10
out of a Feist a thing in specific terms
06:13
you know I you know you for sure he
06:16
knows that a lot of bad stuff is going
06:18
to be made public on the final report
06:20
and the indictments and all of that he
06:22
knows all of that’s coming everybody
06:24
knows that’s coming so but that’s the
06:27
level of relationship that’s between
06:28
them and the interaction that’s between
06:30
them so there is i guarantee everyone
06:34
100% there’s no problems between the two
06:36
men they may disagree
06:38
you know Trump’s tweets and stuff but
06:40
everybody criticizes Trump for his
06:42
tweets so what you know that I think one
06:44
more guy that means nothing an attorney
06:47
general bar has never considered
06:48
resigning in fact I had a friend just
06:51
speculate to me that he thought that
06:52
that was a G bars leak that he was
06:55
considering resigning and then a couple
06:57
hours go by he comes out says absolutely
06:59
not I’m not considering resigning so
07:01
that it changed the news cycle I don’t
07:03
know that that’s true I just thought it
07:05
was a funny speculative point because it
07:08
did change the news cycle and kicked
07:09
everything out on to the next kind of
07:11
the next level so nothing is true about
07:15
any sort of problems between the two men
07:17
nothing is true about him trying to
07:19
resign the resignations of the four
07:22
prosecutors in the stone case that’s
07:25
what’s interesting and that’s what’s
07:27
revealing and I’m guaranteeing everybody
07:29
that’s the rats jump in that sinking
07:31
ship fantastic that’s a great
07:34
explanation thank you a semi-related
07:36
follow-up question
07:37
so Roger stone was convicted for lying
07:42
to the FBI is that right that was the
07:43
charge Congress yes lying to Congress
07:46
okay you know yeah he didn’t they said
07:49
that some of the stuff that he testified
07:51
to is untrue but like I said it was a
07:53
process crime it was that there was no
07:55
underlying actual crime of doing
07:57
anything wrong with trauma so when is
07:59
James Comey going to jail for that well
08:02
precisely so and in fact that was the
08:03
basis of one of the president Trump’s
08:05
tweets is that James Comey lied to
08:07
Congress and you know there was nobody
08:09
yelling for him to get convicted of
08:10
anything and so did McCabe and was a
08:13
peon on his lawn at five o’clock in the
08:15
morning there was not a huge group of
08:17
jima and ready to bust down as his door
08:19
while his wife at him we’re standing
08:21
there before the Sun came up in their
08:22
bathrobes the arrest of stone alone was
08:25
a breach of process that’s right
08:28
all of that is true and like I said
08:29
that’s why those for the award that
08:32
that’s those four prosecutors they’re
08:34
the ones that lined all that stuff up
08:36
they’re the ones that leaked to CNN so
08:38
CNN could be there on time you know this
08:41
thing oh we just happened to be there
08:43
because we were staking out his house
08:44
I’ll load up come out CNN doesn’t
08:47
stakeout Alex’s with a camera crew 24/7
08:51
I mean that’s all you know
08:52
it’s all horse manure it’sit’s just all
08:54
lives of covering up political
08:57
persecution of political opposition
09:00
that’s exactly what’s happened there
09:02
that’s why those guys are gone the jig
09:04
like I said the jig was up the knew they
09:06
were caught and they ran and they’re
09:07
making more money
