DOJ Turncoat Just Showed True Colors

DOJ

An employee in the Department of Justice (DOJ) for 36-years is leaving the department because he is tired of Attorney General Bill Barr’s “slavish obedience to Donald Trump’s will.”

Hatred for Trump Causes DOJ Employee to Quit

Phillip Halpern has spent more than three decades as an assistant U.S. Attorney and was under “19 different attorneys general and six different presidents.” 

The DOJ turncoat wrote an op-ed for the San Diego Union-Tribune on Wednesday that heavily criticized Barr for his ties with the president and for being a “well-trained bureaucrat” who “seems determined to turn our democracy into an autocracy.” 

He pointed out that he believes Senior U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said that Barr did not take seriously enough the conclusion of the Mueller Report. He also claims the AG distorted the special counsel’s findings and called him a “lap dog.”

Accusations Against AG Barr

“Unfortunately, over the last year, Barr’s resentment toward rule-of-law prosecutors became increasingly difficult to ignore, as did his slavish obedience to Donald Trump’s will in his selective meddling with the criminal justice system in the Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn and Roger Stone cases.

In each of these cases, Barr overruled career prosecutors in order to assist the president’s associates and/or friends, who potentially harbor incriminating information. This career bureaucrat seems determined to turn our democracy into an autocracy,” Halpern wrote.

Sticking Up for Violent Rioters the New Norm

The former DOJ associate accused Barr of acting inappropriately towards violent rioters.

“More recently, Barr directed federal officers to use tear gas in Lafayette Park to quell what were, at that time, peaceful protesters.

Barr’s assertion the square was not cleared due to the president’s desire for a Bible-carrying photo op is laughable. It is certainly a case that Barr would lose before a jury (again, though, this may not be clear to him due to his unfamiliarity with jury trials),” he continued.

“Barr also turned his back on the rule of law by supporting the president’s selective use of federal troops to assault citizens protesting the killing of George Floyd in Portland, Oregon. Yet he stood silently by when armed right-wing protesters stormed the Michigan state Capitol building to protest the Democratic governor’s public health orders.”

Anyone close to President Trump has been attacked and slander. Could this just be another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome?

  1. Once again a career destroyed by a bipartisan politics. But it sounds like man had been in the DOJ long enough. He has lost his ability to be objective. The divide at every level just keeps revealing who these people really are.

  2. I would bet my life this all a lie, this is just a pretext to cover Barr, who has done absolutely nothing to indict anyone in the Attempted Coup on our duly elected president.

  3. WHAT HAPPENED? did Halpern get notified that he just got the CUBAN ATTNY GEN. position or did he just decide this was the time to leave before he gets indicted .

  4. Hit the trail Halpern! You have been a Democrat plant inthe FBI for too long anyway. Don’t like the truth. Get your a– out of here!

  5. So, Phillip Halpern has spent more than three decades as an assistant U.S. Attorney and was under “19 different attorneys general and six different presidents.”

    That means his worthless ass sat silent in that position while some of the most horrific crimes were being committed against America……..and not a peep. Phillip Halpern, your reputation precedes you.

  6. Another whining and complaining Trump hater. No one even knows who he is nor do they care. He’s insignificant and certainly has no relevance. He was a paid civil servant doing a job to which he was hired. So he’s leaving, so what. He has no credibility and truth be told no one cares what he thinks or says. He’s totally irrelevant and clearly shows from his latest rant that he is controlled by the hate that’s within him. Obviously from all that he has stated it’s more than time for him to go. Good riddance! No loss at all!

  7. Yep, Left Wing Lunatics in the DOJ, FBI & CIA all hate President Trump. By his hate-filled rant you can tell Halpern is a card carrying Democrat!

  8. Mr. Halprin, you can bitch when you have put in 50 years of service like me.
    Antifu can use a piss-poor lawyer like you, Soros pays well for scheister like u.

  9. This American was dead set against Mueller and his merry henchmen. I knew as did others that Mueller was the tool for a coup perpetrated by the system .
    This guy should retire after all of his years collecting a check off of our backs.

  10. Don’t let the door hit you in the behind on the way out. It is apparent why you advanced no more than you did in the DOJ….Good riddance to a deep state suck up.

  11. This says a lot more about Halpern than it does the state of the DoJ. While the entire DoJ, FBI, Intel Community and Obama administration committed the crime of the century (maybe the crime of US history) and he never noticed a damned thing wrong. But, Barr comes in and begins to release the Trump associates this same group of lawless thugs entrapped and indicted and all of a sudden he starts to see some wrongdoing going on. Someone whose sense of right and wrong was likely also screwing up by the numbers and he needs a good investigation to uncover his part in the overall crime.

  12. Interesting that Phillip Halpern says Barr did not take the Mueller report seriously. The Mueller Report pretty much died in Congress. AG Barr is absolutely correct about General Michael Flynn’s prosecution. And how should he react to towards violent rioters. Peaceful protesters, really?
    What about those armed right-wing protesters who stormed the Michigan state Capitol building to protest the Democratic governor’s public health orders.” How many buildings did they set on fire? Or loot? What did they destroy? Were they violent? No they were none of these things. And many of that Governor’s public health orders were overturned. Seems there was nothing wrong with AG Barr’s actions or inaction.
    Phillip Halpern is pushing Democrat talking points to his Democrat handlers and an uninformed audience for political gain. He will end up with a cushy job at some Democrat approved organization.
