A.G. Barr’s Conundrum: Give Traitorous Coup Plotters a Pass or Tear Down Institutions Viewed as Essential to Security of U.S.

(The Federalist) New court documents filed under seal include significant exculpatory information about Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser, an FBI official familiar with the situation told The Federalist on Friday.

The revelation that significant exculpatory information exonerating Michael Flynn has been known prior to now, but this is the first time that White Hats from inside the FBI are corroborating this fact.

It’s hard to see how  Attorney General William Barr will be able to continue avoiding making the biggest decision of his life; out the traitors who undermined the duly elected president’s NSA director and risk undermining all public trust in what had become the spear of a corrupt police state under former President Obama, or salvage what’s left of these otherwise necessary institutions.

The crimes perpetrated against President Trump and his team were unconscionable and were inarguably an attempted coup against the government of the United States.  

These crimes only grew worse with time as the corrupt media ran protection for the violators and encouraged them to continue in their attempt to undermine and remove the people’s chosen president.

What are the potential penalties? According to 18 U.S. Code § 2385:

Advocating overthrow of Government

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government” could face charges…

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

What about lower hanging fruit like treason?  According to 18 U.S. Code § 2381.

Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

The conspiracy against President Trump was more widespread than most people know or even want to consider.  At least 50 FBI agents alone worked on both the initial FBI investigation and then moved over to continue the charade under special counsel Robert Mueller.

At least half that number from the executive suites of the DOJ and FBI have already resigned or been demoted for their involvement.  There are more. 

Then there’s the collaborators from within the Obama White House… someone had to have known and authorized the beginnings of the attempted coup.

Evidence proving the involvement of CIA Director John Brennan and DNI James Clapper is also undeniable.

Therein lies Barr’s dilemma.

Penalizing politicians for their decisions would create a dangerous precedent, especially in a country as divided along partisan lines as ours is currently.  

On the other hand, excusing traitorous or seditious misfeasance strictly under the guise of poor political decision-making would render wrongdoers unpunishable… and the republic indefensible.

No one can define where that line is but, as with pornography, we know it when I see it.

The attorney general can either do what’s right and accept the risk of destroying these important institutions, or, he can guarantee forever their weaponization against the American people.

By prosecuting the conspirators… all of the conspirators… to the fullest extent permissible by the law, Attorney General Barr will not be able to guarantee it’ll never happen again, but it can serve to give pause to future corrupt politicians.
