Now why oh why would Mark Warner be so anxious to shut Barr’s investigation down, especially now that it’s morphed into a criminal inquiry?

You’d think a sitting senator would want the American people to know what really happened behind the scenes during the 2016 election …

Or not.

Could it be the good senator from Virginia is himself hiding something?

Hrm.

Sean Davis has a few ideas about why Warner reacted the way he did:

Oh, THAT’S right.

And wow, they are all so freakin’ dirty.

Subpoena?

Something like that.

Oops.

From The Federalist:

Congressional documents and recently leaked texts between Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and a registered foreign agent for a Russian aluminum oligarch indicate that Daniel J. Jones is intimately involved with ongoing efforts to retroactively validate a series of salacious and unverified memos produced by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, and Fusion GPS. The dossier, which declassified documents show was used as a basis for securing secret wiretaps on Trump campaign affiliates, was reportedly jointly funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Double oops even.

No wonder he’s sweatin’ it.
