posted by Hannity Staff - 8.19.19

Attorney General William Barr confirmed Monday the appointment of a new director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons after the death of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein inside his New York City jail cell.

Attorney General William Barr announced Monday the appointment of a new director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons following the shocking suicide of accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein inside a federal lockup earlier this month,” reports Fox News.

“Dr. Kathleen Hawk Sawyer is set to take over as director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a position she previously served in for 11 years beginning in 1992, a Department of Justice news release said,” adds Fox.

“During this critical juncture, I am confident Dr. Hawk Sawyer and Dr. Kane will lead BOP with the competence, skill, and resourcefulness they have embodied throughout their government careers,” Barr said in the news release.

Barr vowed a full DOJ investigation into the death of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in police custody last Monday; saying there are “serious irregularities” in the circumstances surrounding his apparent suicide.

“Attorney General William Barr blasted corrections officials on Monday for what he described as ‘serious irregularities’ at the New York federal prison where financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead. He vowed a full investigation by the FBI and the Justice Department inspector general,” reports Fox News.

“This sex trafficking case was very important to the Department of Justice, and to me, personally,” Barr said. “It was important to the dedicated prosecutors at the Southern District of New York and to our FBI agents who investigated the case, and were preparing it for trial,” he added.

“Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who had the courage to come forward, and deserve the opportunity to confront the accused in the courtroom,” he continued. “Let me assure you this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and they will get it.”

Epstein -who is accused of sexually abusing dozens of girls as young as 14- was found dead in his cell at New York City’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan.

BAD MEMORY: Joe Biden Called William Barr ‘One of the Best’ Attorney Generals Back in 1995

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.11.19

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden demanded William Barr resign from the Department of Justice in previous days following his handling of the Mueller report; conveniently forgetting his public praise of the Attorney General back in the 1990s.

According to CBS News, Biden applauded Barr’s time at the DOJ back in 1995; adding “you were one of the best I have ever worked with.”

“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general,” Biden told Barr, who was President George H.W. Bush’s attorney general. “You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”

Biden has apparently changed his mind; calling for the removal of Barr just weeks ago.

“Should AG Barr resign?” asked a reporter in Des Moines, Iowa.

“I think he’s lost the confidence of the American people. I think he should,” fired-back Biden.

Biden was mocked on both sides of the political aisle last weekend; with pundits pointing out his “lackluster” schedule and his ongoing “bromance” with Barack Obama.

Joe Biden found himself mocked over the weekend for his corny effort to tie himself to former President Barack Obama, while also coming under criticism from other presidential candidates for skipping the biggest Iowa campaign event of the cycle so far,” reports Fox News.

Biden marked ‘Best Friends Day’ last Friday by posting a pair of “friendship bracelets” donning both their names.

“This is a joke, right?” asked former senior presidential advisor David Axelrod.

“It turns out, the bracelet itself was: BuzzFeed produced a sympathetic and playful video in 2016 of Obama encouraging people to register to vote, showing the president jokingly making the bracelet,” adds Fox.

Nearly 20 Democratic candidates descended on Iowa over the weekend to speak at party fundraiser. Notably absent from the event? Joe Biden.

“When I saw the program for today, I thought the same thing you all did, which is this: Joe Biden must really not like to travel,” said entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a Democratic candidate.

Biden claims he skipped the event to attend the graduation of his granddaughter.

“Jill & I were thrilled to be there today to watch our amazing granddaughter Maisy graduate. Maisy, you make us so proud & we can’t wait to see what you do next with your talent, smarts, dedication and kindness. The future is yours, and Nana & Pop will always be right behind you,” posted the former VP on social media.
