On June 21 the Office of Military Commissions convicted former Attorney General William Barr on charges of treason, buttressing Donald J. Trump’s assertion that Deep State operatives had infiltrated nearly every crevice of his administration. Upon learning of Barr’s fate, Trump reportedly told his inner circle “Justice was served” and that Deep Staters masquerading as Republicans are not impervious to military justice.
Real Raw News can now report that Barr was taken into custody on May 21, when U.S. Marines operating under the guidance of the Insurrection Act arrested the traitor at his McClean, Virginia, home. He was promptly taken to Guantanamo Bay, where he lived in a 6X9’ cell while awaiting his tribunal date.
On Tuesday Barr had his day in court. In an opening statement, he said he had been fiercely loyal to Donald J. Trump prior to his ousting. He said he had helped craft many of the indictments on which the military was now acting, under the belief that Trump was interested in “draining the swamp.” But in November Barr had an epiphany; he told the tribunal that Trump had instructed him to author indictments on persons who had no ties to the political arena, and that it was his opinion that Trump’s indictments were designed to settle personal scores and vendettas, not to restore political integrity.
“President Trump subverted my trust and judicial authority. When he showed me a list of people to be indicted, I was shocked. I asked him why this or that person was being indicted, and he told me ‘Because they’re criminals, Bill.’ When I asked for proof, he told me ‘Don’t worry, Bill, we’ll find the proof.’ I refused to participate any further in his witch hunt, and that’s why I tendered my resignation on 23 December,” Barr addressed the tribunal.
His explanation didn’t seem to impress Rear Adm. Darse E. Crandall, who had successfully prosecuted the military’s case against John Podesta.
“An interesting, largely fictional telling of what happened. Let’s be honest with each other here, Mr. Barr. You were given an opportunity to resign—to save face. Not that it mattered because, unbeknownst to you, you were already under scrutiny. If you had moral and ethical issues with the indictments back in April, May, June, July, August, September, October, and November, why would you wait until Dec 23 to resign? That doesn’t make much sense,” Rear Adm. Crandall said.
Barr countered that he wanted to give Trump every chance to realize he had taken a precipitous turn toward the dark side and to return to the light.
“I tried to help him,” Barr said.
“The truth is exactly the opposite, isn’t it, Mr. Barr. Trump kept you around because he keeps his friends close and his enemies closer, and he gave you every opportunity to amend your mistakes. Then you stabbed him in the back by denying election fraud and supporting a fraudulent president. And certainly you understand that bribery, especially for an appointed official, is akin to treason,” Rear Adm. Crandall said.
He showed the panel incontrovertible proof of Barr’s criminal maleficence—financial documents proving the Barrs—William and Christine—had received a $7,000,000 “donation” deposited into a 501C3 titled “Conservative Truth Initiative.” The depositor, a Chinese national with indisputable ties to the DNC, spread the funds across several bank accounts. The deposits had hit the Barrs’ accounts on 2 December, one day after Barr excoriated Trump on national television.
“I submit to you,” Rear Adm. Crandall told the three-officer tribunal, “that William Barr did knowingly collaborate with the enemy to undermine and delegitimize the democratically elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and in doing so betrayed his oath to the U.S. Constitution. Simply put, treason.”
“What I did was take action to protect the United States. If I had to, I’d do it again. I’d do it five times over,” Barr said.
Fifteen minutes later, the panel found Barr guilty of treason, seditious conspiracy, advocating overthrow of government, recruiting for the service against the United States, and enlistment to serve against the United States, and decreed that he be executed for his crimes in accordance with U.S.C. Title 18 and provisions specified in the Insurrection Act of 1807.
Rear Adm. Darse has scheduled Barr’s hanging for August 2.
