    Bill Barr accused of perjury by Michigan AG for saying he had no knowledge of right-wing threats
    October 9, 2020 By Tom Boggioni

    Appearing on CNN on Friday morning, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel lashed out at Attorney General Bill Barr for testifying in July that he was unaware of threats against the state’s governor — saying he was either ignorant of what is going on in his department or he committed perjury.

    On Thursday, the Detroit News reported on a plan by right-wing militia members to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and place her on trial, while noting that Barr had pleaded ignorance when asked about people with threatening signs at anti-Whitmer rallies.

    Speaking with CNN host John Berman, Nessel said too little attention is being paid to Barr’s words before a House committee.

    “Can I bring up a point that no one seems to be talking about?” Nessel asked the host. “Over the summer United States Attorney General Bill Barr testified under oath before the House Judiciary Committee that he had no idea that there were any threats being made at all to the governor of the state of Michigan.”

    She then added, “And yet, his own authorities were actively working to foil these types of plans and these threats, which seems very curious to me that either, A: he didn’t know what was happening in his own Justice Department or, B: he committed perjury.”

    ^^ One of the more bizarre things about Barr's actions is that though he may just seem like Grifter-in-Chief's greatest enabler, he has been lying left and right under oath all over the place. Perjury is a felony. With a statute of limitations that reflects that it is a felony. Why is he this version of comfortable with ruining his reputation and potentially going to prison? It may be unusual to go after a DA, but he's been so aggressively corrupt, he should not be feeling remotely comfortable.

    Even if he was just so certain that his plan to fix this election could be successful, the statute of limitations on the grand majority of these lies is lengthy enough that he can be prosecuted after a second term if one were to happen. No idea why he's this level of comfortable with blatantly lying.

    Good liars are comfortable with doing it. It is a vicious loop.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    The Breonna Taylor grand jury was not given an opportunity to consider homicide charges in the case against police officers who served a no-knock warrant at her home the night she was killed, an anonymous member of the panel has said
