(Liberty Bell) – I don’t know about you, but if I were a member of the Deep State, I’d be laying low right now.
Never before has more been out in the open about the extent to which the Obama intelligence agencies worked to undermine the election, and then administration, of President Donald J. Trump.
Of course, being the vindictive, treasonous coup plotters that they are, they’re doubling-down on their inflammatory rhetoric, accusing the Trump administration of corruption left and right.
Who has ever seen such amazing feats of projection?
Notorious former prosecutor for the Muller probe, Andrew Weissmann, has accused Attorney General Bill Barr of lying during his closely-watched testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
Weissman claims that what Barr said in April of 2019 about the White House’s cooperation with the Mueller probe conflicts with comments he made on Tuesday.
“Mueller’s pitbull” made his accusation on the very Deep State-friendly MSNBC.
“I thought Rep. [Joe] Neguse did a phenomenal job in cornering the attorney general in what I think is going to come out of this is something that really is a false statement,” Weissmann said.
“He said, ‘You said in a press conference that the White House fully cooperated in the Mueller investigation,’ and the attorney general would not repeat that under oath. He said, ‘No, no, what I really meant was fully cooperated only with respect to document production.'”
He explained that he’d re-watched Barr’s April 18, 2019 press conference and confirmed that Barr had claimed the White House cooperated with requests from the Mueller team for documents and access to witnesses.
The Trump administration has been long accused of restricting access to documents and witnesses.
During the hearing on Tuesday during a sensational back-and-forth, Neguse demanded of Barr “Today, yes or no, Mr. Barr – under penalty of perjury – do you testify that that statement was true at the time you made it?”
"I'm going to answer the damn question."
Do these hysterical Democrat crybabies want a hearing or not?
Answer: no. But at least they could get a little bit better at scoring political points. This is just sad pic.twitter.com/QXP7HoxSuO

BizPac Review describes the exchange:
“I thought it was true at the time I made it,” the attorney general replied. “Why wasn’t it true?”
Instead of offering any clarity, the not quite ready for prime time freshman lawmaker tried to ask another question, only to have Barr push the issue. Neguse shouted that he was “reclaiming” his time — a common refrain from Democrats throughout the day — insisting that Barr had already answered the question.
“No, actually I need to answer that question,” Barr countered.
“Mr. Attorney General, you did answer the question,” the Democrat replied.
“No. You said under penalty of perjury,” Barr then reminded the lawmaker. “I’m going to answer the damn question. OK?”
Republican lawmakers are heard laughing off-camera at Neguse being outclassed.
Barr would proceed to clarify that when he made the statement in question that he believed he was referring to the handing over of documents.
Here’s a sampling of the responses to the exchange from Twitter:
They're purposely not allowing him to answer bc they know they're wrong! They are grandstanding for their supporters!

The truly pitiful thing is that, while Democrat lawmakers believe in their own minds they are "winning" the session, they are actually just making themselves look like horses a$$es. (With apologies to any horses I may have offended.)
