Interview Brad Johnson on AG Barr and Trump 7 months ago Brad Johnson 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
