US Attorney General William Barr rejected a plea deal for Derek Chauvin days after the Minneapolis cop was accused of killing George Floyd, a new report claims.
Three law enforcement officials with knowledge of the deal told the New York Times that Chauvin had agreed to plead guilty to third-degree murder three days after video of him kneeling on Floyd’s neck during an arrest on May 25 went viral, sparking fevered protests in the city and around the US.
Under the deal, Chauvin would avoid civil rights charges and serve no more than 10 years in prison, the Times sources said.
But right before local prosecutors were set to announce the deal, Barr stepped in and quashed it. One official said Barr made the decision because he feared the deal would be perceived as too lenient and premature, potentially exacerbating the unrest gripping the nation.
The more we learn about Barr, the more obvious his Deep State actions and motivations become. The end result of his decision was more, not less “unrest” – read, looting, arson, murder, riot, and sedition – on the part of Blamtifa.
The Times report published Wednesday came as tensions are again running high in Minneapolis ahead of the start of Chauvin’s trial on charges of unintentional second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Well, maybe the Kommie Harris administration can send some of those thousands of National Guardsmen currently locking down D.C. like a third world dictatorship’s Green Zone. Oh, who am I kidding? That would be perceived as “exacerbating the unrest,” and so it will never happen.
OTOH, I hope they burn Minneapolis to the ground. It’s what the progtard morons who live there keep voting for.
