Aaron Zelinsky is back on the scene and he’s ready to serve as a “whistle-blower” against Attorney General Bill Barr.

If you aren’t familiar with Zelinksy, he was a top prosecutor for the Mueller investigation and was later implicated in the ridiculous sentencing recommendation against Roger Stone. He resigned in protest once Barr stepped into stop the overreach.

This per The Daily Caller.

One of the top prosecutors on the special counsel’s team is set to testify as a whistleblower against Attorney General William Barr, the House Judiciary Committee announced on Tuesday.

Aaron Zelinsky will testify on June 24 regarding the Justice Department’s handling of the prosecution of Roger Stone, a longtime Trump confidante convicted on charges that he made false statements to Congress during its investigation of possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Mueller’s investigation famously had Roger Stone arrested with CNN cameras present and guns drawn, because an old man without an active passport was obviously a flight risk or something. The entire thing was one of many abuses of the justice system perpetrated by Mueller and merry bad of partisans. In the end, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Democrat appointee, agreed with Barr’s revised recommendation, sentencing Stone to a little over three years instead of the nine originally pushed by Zelinsky.

Zelinsky is a self-described Democrat who wrote dozens of articles for The Huffington Post, a far-left outlet. Like almost everyone on Mueller’s team, he was a supporter of Hillary Clinton and outspoken partisan. The idea that he and the rest of those around him were able to operate without bias when investigating matters from the Trump campaign to Roger Stone is laughable. The entire investigation was eaten up with partisan rancor, and the report they finally put out showed that clearly.

Of course, while Zelinsky is ready to “blow the whistle” on Bill Barr, it’s noteworthy that no one has come forward to blow the whistle on the FISA abuse which has now been documented. Instead, it took years of investigation, much by outside figures, to finally expose what happened. That should give you a good idea of how corrupt the FBI and DOJ are. Blatant abuses of power regarding the Trump campaign get covered up while Barr doing the right thing in the Stone case solicits “whistle-blowers.” It’s ludicrous but completely par for the course.

In the end, I suspect Zelinsky will have nothing to offer except more biased nonsense. Nothing Barr did was hidden, so what exactly is he even blowing the whistle on? The original recommendation against Stone, no matter what you think of him, was a travesty and never should have been made. That was confirmed with the Democrat appointed judge who had shown no mercy to Stone throughout the proceedings ended up agreeing with Barr.

But none of these facts matter because Congressional Democrats want to put on another show. Welcome to the absurdity that is 2020.
