Trump’s tweet, Barr’s response and failed Jessie Liu – the intersect

 

A  big “tell” is out there about AG Barr that is not getting the attention it deserves. While the riff about Barr having a problem with Trump’s tweets is the headliner, we are missing the story.

Via NBC) […] The former U.S. attorney whose office oversaw the Roger Stone prosecution resigned from the Trump administration Wednesday, two days after President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew her nomination for a top job at the Treasury Department.

Jessie Liu

Why did Barr ever think Jessie Liu was worth promoting to a critical role in treasury? and worse to the DOJ #3 post before that. As soon as Barr was confirmed he was her champion. She was involved with Mueller including the Stone and McCabe cases. Keep it in mind as we go through this:

Trump picks U.S. attorney in D.C. for No. 3 Justice position 03/05/2019

Attorney General William Barr, who was confirmed last month, said in a statement Tuesday that he recommended Liu for the post and was pleased Trump made the nomination.

“Jessie has distinguished herself as a first-class attorney in private practice, in the Treasury Department, and in five different positions over her career at the Department of Justice,” Barr wrote. “Today she leads more than 300 prosecutors at our nation’s largest U.S. Attorney office, where she has achieved significant accomplishments, including prosecuting several significant False Claims Act cases and implementing the Department’s pilot initiative on sexual harassment in public housing.

“With her record of public service, particularly in civil justice and federal law enforcement matters, it is clear that she will be an outstanding addition to our leadership team at the Department,” Barr added.

The Senate refused to confirm her.

Yea, well how about her involvement with the Roger Stone and Andrew McCabe and the rest of the Mueller hoax hmm??? How about Wolfe? Former Security director of the senate intelligence committee?

This didn’t work so why not move her up in Treasury?

CNN:

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’s decision to abruptly withdraw a Treasury Department nomination for Jessie Liu, the former US attorney who headed the office that oversaw Roger Stone’s prosecution, was directly tied to her former job, CNN has learned.

While head of the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, Liu inherited many of the major ongoing cases from Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation and was also handling the politically charged case of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a frequent target of Trump’s ire who is also a CNN contributor.

Before I get ahead of myself let’s check out the infamous Barr interview on ABC.

Here’s the captured interview without pundit opinion. Watch the full interview yourself. Then more about Liu and connecting the dots. So Trump needs to shut up and Barr do his thing.

Trump makes it difficult for Barr to do his job. Sour grapes over Roger Stone?

I can’t beat the work Conservative Tree House has done on this piece of work Liu who was scheduled to move up the ladder at  Treasury……with confirmation scheduled yesterday but then withdrawn.

If President Trump saying “this case sucks” via Twitter is enough to collapse the institutional objectives of a modern judicial system… and impede the ability of the U.S. Attorney General to do his job, well, what does that say about how weak and compromised the guardians have allowed that system to become?

Then again, that level of institutional compromise explains exactly why a fraudulent impeachment attempt was even possible.

Believe him? Or just another Comey who everyone gushed over. Where are all those documents we have been promised? Hmm? Prosecutions?? Maybe Barr needs to get out more.

 

 

 

Jessie Liu Resigns Treasury Dept. Following Nomination Withdrawal…

Not surprisingly, several media outlets are reporting Jessie Liu resigned from the Treasury Department effective Wednesday evening. Interestingly, in the discussions of the issues around Liu all MSM are ignoring her involvement in the James Wolfe case/cover-up.

Ms. Liu moved from being U.S. Attorney in DC into the Treasury Department in a quest to become the Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes within the agency.  However, that treasury position required senate confirmation and President Trump withdrew her nomination.

Wikipedia:

In March 2019, President Donald Trump said he would nominate Liu to become United States Associate Attorney General, but she withdrew her name from consideration later that month because the Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee objected to her nomination.[10][11][12]

On December 10, 2019, President Trump announced his intent to nominate Liu as Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the Department of the Treasury.[13] The nomination was submitted to the U.S. Senate on January 6, 2020.[14] Some Republicans doubted her conservative credentials and loyalty to Trump.[15] On February 11, 2020, Trump withdrew her nomination, two days before her confirmation hearing was scheduled to begin. As a US attorney, Liu had overseen some ancillary cases referred by the Mueller investigation including the Roger Stone prosecution, as well as a politically-charged case involving former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, until attorney general Bill Barr replaced her with his close advisor Tim Shea[16] in January 2020.[17] CNN reported the next day that Liu’s nomination was withdrawn because she was perceived to be insufficiently involved in the Stone and McCabe cases.[18]

But I saved the best to last. Sundance over at Conservative Tree House has the worst of it.

The DC Cover-up That’s As Big As Spygate…

Its a long and complicated tale…only the most dedicated will get through it, but the long and short of it:

Immediately after the 2018 mid-terms DC Attorney Jessie Liu dropped most of the charges against Wolfe, security director of the senate intelligence committee, and he was allowed -under a plea agreement- to plead guilty to only one count of lying to investigators.

December 11th, DOJ sentencing memo [HERE], and then a very pissed-off FBI follow-up within the DOJ response to the Defense sentencing memo [HERE] dated December 14th.

In essence, after the November election, SSCI Director Wolfe was allowed to avoid prosecution for leaking top-secret classified documents; and the bigger issue was covered-up.

Is there any question now about Barr being upset that the gig is up and his colors are being shown? He had complete knowledge about her when he first promoted her.

Barr and Mueller are friends? “Confirmation hearing unlikely to derail attorney general confirmation.” Just another creature from the swamp.

A pretty damning clip knowing what we know now.

 

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
