Trump and Republicans are not held to the standard they set for themselves. This is a simple affair. All you need is to blame the Dems for the hypocrisy, as they were mean. The Republicans STOLE the supreme pick from Obama, using cooked up logic. Now it comes time to adhere to the standard set by Repubs. NOPE, The Dems treated Kavanaugh mean, so all standards are defunct. They didnt even hear the Obama pick, which seems kinda mean to me, but that is water under the troll bridge. The Repubs are hurt.

We need answers about many corrupt actions by this DOJ. NOPE, the Dems were mean, and insulted and questioned BArr, so there will be no oversight from congress. Hillary did not get to declare that the Repubs were mean, when she testified for eight hours. Obama didnt get to declare that the Repubs were mean, when they accused him of being a witchdoctor. A spy from Africa, to DESTROY the United States.

The only snowflakes are Repubs. Dems are not given any leeway. And, Dems are held tightly to the standards they set. In fact, even giving an opinion, they are held to those standards, and the Repubs are not. Biden said, Supreme picks should be chosen close to election, and it is referred to as the BIDEN RULE. And yet, it only applies to Dems. This goes for any Dem opinion. Dems should pay ALL taxes, to show they are loyal citizens, while the Repubs sock it away under the mattress.

The repubs are creating a lose lose for Dems, while they have NO standards, and are free to act corrupt, MEAN and evil, as they dont preach any decency at all.

Trump is judged ONLY by fans, as ANYONE with an opinion on Trump other than worship, is a trump hater, a RINO and usually a disgruntled EX emp. And so, only sycophantic questions, only REPUBLICAN issued questions, scrutiny is acceptable. All others are deemed MEAN, and ignored.

Will this fly when Dems are in power? Get real.

DOJ says it won't send officials to testify because Democrats were 'scolding and insulting' to Barr



(CNN) - The Justice Department is refusing to send its senior officials to testify before Congress these next two weeks, blaming the Democrats' treatment of Attorney General William Barr during a July hearing.

In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee dated Monday declining to make witnesses available, the Justice Department accused Democratic committee members of "scolding and insulting the Attorney General" during a July 28 hearing, repeatedly interrupting him, and refusing to let him answer questions.

The department accused members of instead using "their allotted time to air grievances" rather than trying to obtain information from Barr.

"We very much regret that the committee did not elect to engage in a meaningful, good-faith effort to obtain information and views from the Attorney General while he was present and prepared to testify," Stephen Boyd, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs, wrote in the letter to Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.

None of this matters now. Yes, McConnell should have been expelled from the senate for not putting Obie's nominee for a vote however until a time stamp is placed on the majority leader it's perfectly legal.

The GOP is correct to put this to a vote ASAP.
This SHOULD be law, one week or one month from the time the president nominates someone.

When before an investigative committee, they should allow Barr to actually answer and explain processes being used not talk over him then yield back their time before he can answer. If Democrats don't operate in good faith with the stated purpose of the questioning, they aren't worth talking to.

Sounds like Republicans write all the rules, and follow none.
