Prepare to be disappointed

I have been waiting patiently for AG Bill Barr to lower the boom on a number of those who staged a coup against President Trump.  Indeed, I had high hopes that Barr might finally get some justice for the perpetrators of Fast and Furious, the Obama era scheme to send guns to Mexican drug cartels in hopes of tying the guns to the deaths of Americans and stir up sentiment for gun control.  After a year, I am losing hope, and with the decision not to charge McCabe, I think Barr has shown his hand.

Indeed, it seems that I am not alone. Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory have a post up at the American Thinker entitled Has The Deep State Beaten Bill Barr? that makes the point that what Barr is really doing is trying to run out the clock on Trump. They write:
Skeptical conservative voters were admonished to be patient, and that the likes of Comey, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, and Brennan would soon be charged for their crimes and jailed. Yet, amid the frantic waving of pom-poms, something perfectly predictable happened on the way to the Deep State's day of reckoning. The days turned to into weeks, the weeks into months, and now a full year.
It has been said that justice delayed is justice denied. It has now been more than three years since the broad outlines of the coup became public knowledge, as explicated in excruciating forensic detail by Mark Levin, Greg Jarrett, Deroy Murdock, Mollie Hemingway, and John Solomon, among numerous others. And still, to this day, no Deep State coup-plotter has been charged with a crime. Fringe associates of Trump sit in prison (e.g., Manafort, Stone) or wallow in legal limbo (Flynn) for "crimes" of obvious government entrapment that pale into nothingness compared to the open and audacious felonies of Comey, Clapper, Brennan, and their ilk. Indeed, the coup-plotters have cashed in and monetized their notoriety, with bestselling books, shameless GoFundMe Pages, lucrative cable news contracts, and an open-door forum to espouse their anti-Trump venom on all forms of media.
And what of the sainted Bill Barr? Barr's DOJ has all but exonerated McCabe of any crimes -- indeed, on February 14, the DOJ indicated that it would not pursue charges against McCabe. If Barr and the DOJ are unwilling to hold McCabe accountable, why would conservatives expect anything different with Comey, Brennan, or Clapper, or Obama, or any of the others who were so central to the coup that continues to this day? It's business as usual at Barr's DOJ — Republicans continue to be targeted (e.g., Duncan Hunter), while Democrats (Hillary, Comey, McCabe, take your pick) skate free every time.
If you, like me had hopes that the swamp might be drained, prepare to be disappointed.
