It is quickly becoming clear that Democrats are simply not able or willing to accept any outcome for the Mueller investigation which does not fit their pre-determined narrative.

Anyone they perceive as someone who helped Trump is being targeted for destruction, the latest example being Attorney General William Barr.

The Hill reports:

Democrats renew attacks on Trump attorney general

Democrats ripped into Attorney General William Barr on Friday, signaling he’ll be a focal point of their attacks on the Trump administration in the post-Mueller report world.

The Democrats say Barr bungled the handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and that he has repeatedly sought to protect President Trump, contrasting his comments about what the report said with the actual text that was released on Thursday.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) issued a subpoena on Friday to win the release of the full report, while other Democrats have called for Barr’s resignation.

The report is also fueling new talk of impeachment.

“We can’t blame Republicans for the lack of an impeachment effort. We control the House,” Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), a longtime advocate for impeaching Trump, said Thursday. “It is up to us to act.”

The attacks on Barr do, to a certain extent, shift the target from Trump, which could help party leaders who would rather avoid that issue.

Democrats just can’t let this go. They’re too deeply invested in the Russia hoax to move on. Why is Barr now coming under attack over this?

Victor Davis Hanson explains at National Review:

Why the Effort to Demonize Attorney General Barr?

The current progressive effort to demonize attorney general William Barr is creepy, but then again not so strange. He came into the office with singular experience and an excellent reputation from past service.

As attorney general, he has followed the law to the letter in handling the release, redactions, and dissemination of the Mueller report. His summaries of the report proved factual. They were not contested by Robert Mueller or his team. His decision not to pursue “obstruction” was not just his own, but logically followed from the Mueller report that did not find enough evidence to make such a positive recommendation.

His congressional testimony that there was “spying” during the 2016 campaign is, of course, factually undeniable, and Barr added the qualifier of being interested in finding whether such surveillance was warranted or not.

At some point, someone on the Republican side needs to stand up to the Democrats and simply say, enough.
