William Barr has found the light and is speaking the truth to the January 6th Committee. That he had to be compelled to do this under subpoena and under oath shows what a POS he is. It’s despicable that he didn’t push against Trump’s lies in real time and watched the events leading up to January 6th and beyond unfold without speaking out. But we always knew what he was. When he shut down Mueller and covered for Trump on his Russian treason, we knew Barr would do almost anything to lick Trump’s ass. But January 6th seems to be a line in the sand. Why?
The very simple reason is because Barr knew the jig was up. There were too many oversights, too many honorable people involved, too many uphill battles to ever prove election fraud. Trump wasn’t delusional, as Barr claims. Trump was always going to call it election fraud if he didn’t win. He hinted that in 2015. Barr isn’t stupid. He knows exactly what Trump was up to. But the thing about Barr is that he is Ultra Maga on the inside, but on the outside, he doesn’t want to go to jail. Propping up Trump after he lost the election was not only going to prove futile, it was going to be illegal for many and give criminal exposure. So, Barr’s willingness to go along ended there.
That’s why he never spoke out. That’s why he quietly resigned. It wasn’t that the crime was too big, it was that the plausible deniability factor was too small. He’s a willing servant to evil, but only if that evil can be spun to his satisfaction, which just simply wasn’t possible after Trump lost.
