Over the centuries, rats have been known to infest many ships.
When a ship runs into trouble and begins to sink, the rats quickly begin trying to find ways to escape from the ship, giving rise to the age old saying about rats disserting a sinking ship.
When Attorney General William Barr announced that his probe of the Russia probe has been underway for weeks. The rats within the Democratic Party began trying to dissert their sinking ship.
In the process, some of those rats are willing to sacrifice each other in hopes of escaping their own doom.
Among the rats being named as guilty parties are former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan.
The National Sentinel – Deep State rats Comey, Brennan, and others turning on each other as AG Barr tightens noose in widening “Spygate” probe – For nearly two years, supporters of POTUS Donald Trump watched as he and his administration were hamstrung by a bogus “Russian collusion” investigation that was amplified by the fake news “mainstream media” as well as Democrats in Congress.
For just as long, Trump supporters grew frustrated and angry at then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from ‘all things Russia’ very early in his tenure, which then allowed former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller.
But Sessions is gone now, replaced by William Barr, himself a Washington insider and former attorney general who, it appears, has far more regard for reinstating the rule of law and trust in governing institutions that was utterly destroyed after eight years of rule by Barack Obama…
Thinking of how the Deep State cronies are beginning to panic and turn on each other brings to mind another old cliché – no honor among thieves.
The question now is how many of the guilty parties will try to cut deals with the DOJ as they turn on each other and hope save their own hides?
If Barr and his team were smart, they would insert a loophole in every deal that would give the DOJ the ability to still indict all guilty parties.
I hope that there is enough room in the federal prison system to house all of those involved in the intentional illegal probe and coup to unseat a sitting president.
