(TNS) President Donald Trump’s legions of supporters were greatly disappointed — again — last week when the Justice Department declined to act on DoJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s criminal referral against fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

As Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) correctly pointed out during an appearance on Fox News Friday evening, based on the IG’s referral, McCabe “leaked, he lied about leaking, then he lied about lying about leaking.”
Trump supporters and other Americans not interested in seeing our system of justice divided into two tiers — one set of rules for the elite, another for the rest of us — were equally frustrated when the DoJ declined to pursue criminal charges against McCabe’s former boss, James Comey, for leaking classified information to a friend, who then leaked it to the media.
All that said, Democrats and the deep state tend to telegraph their concerns about certain scandals based on who they are attacking, and at the moment, the knives are out for Attorney General William Barr.
As noted by Fox News host Jessie Watters on his program Saturday evening, the latest scandal being fabricated by the Left goes something like this: Barr improperly ‘interfered’ in a case involving ‘Trump ally Roger Stone,’ and for that he must be…’impeached.’
“What Barr has done should mean that we are demanding a resignation. And if that guy won’t resign, then the House should start impeachment proceedings against him,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Friday, in a bid to do something, anything, to seem relevant enough to revive her flagging presidential campaign.
Watters says this new line of attack is similar to previous lines of attack in the age of President Trump.
“The left already has this huge new scandal that’s very similar to the last so-called scandal in this way. It was a setup and nothing illegal happened,” Watters said.
“Now, I’m not excusing what Stone did, but he’s only charged because of the hoax. There’s no Russia hoax, there’s no charges. He’s basically just paying a price because Hillary [Clinton] and her fake dossier polluted the system,” Watters continued.
“So Bill Barr gets wind of this crazy overcharging. And he realizes these dirty prosecutors had lied to his team and he’s thinking this is way out of line. So he lowers the nine-year recommendation,” he added, noting that this attack line with Barr is “dumber than the Ukraine scandal” that got President Trump impeached.
“Now, the attorney general can’t interfere in the Department of Justice? It’s his department. The prosecutors work for him,” Watters said. “It’s like saying a boss is interfering in his own company. Doesn’t make sense.”
Watters then explains why he believes Barr is coming under assault.
“The good news, though, is [that] the wheels of justice are starting to move forward again in America,” he said. “Rudy Giuliani was on ‘Watters’ World’ last week and he brought documents that he claims show [former President Barack] Obama’s people colluded with the Ukrainians against Trump and that Hunter [Bider] allegedly laundered millions.”
“And this is now being investigated.,” Watters said. “People aren’t getting away with what they used to.
“That’s why Bill Barr is under attack,” Watters added. “The left knows what’s coming.”
Maybe. It’s not like we haven’t heard this a dozen times before — with McCabe, Comey, and others like Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and Bruce Ohr, the latter of whom, by the way, is still employed at the Justice Department.
But it’s also not as if those involved in the Spygate hoax haven’t paid any price. Most all of those people mentioned above had their careers cut short and in McCabe’s case, he lost his pension. Plus, all of them now have an asterisk by their names whenever they are mentioned in legitimate media and historical context.
So who knows what Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham have coming down the pipe. It could be that DoJ was passing on minor charges against the likes of McCabe and Comey only to level more serious charges at them or people who could implicate them. We’ll see.

But Watters’ point that the Democrats always let us know who they are worried about is true, nonetheless. By attacking Barr, they are attempting to cheapen and taint any findings and charges he and his Spygate investigator, Durham, are about to produce.
