    One is amused by the number of republican political careers being destroyed by this cowardly defense of a corrupted traitorous president. Of course, their defense of the indefensible is just a symptom of their own corruption and utter lack of patriotism.
    The republicans have become anti-American, in the extreme. Forty percent of your population supports this. America does not have a chance, because of the very nature of its population.
    The sad truth is that Donald Trump accurately represents the mind set of a huge proportion of your population.

    Bill “Pardon Everyone” Barr is getting appointed because Trump wants to pardon himself. Trump appointing an Attorney General is a conflict of interest.

    Trump is a criminal who only hires criminals. Barr is a criminal because he works for Trump.

    William Barr has been picked by Trump with a secret mission: let Bob Mueller’s Investigation continue its path to completion but how the final report is handled is anyone’s guess. Barr will decide what will be released depending on his interpretation of the laws or regulations related to Special Counsel of Investigation!

    Barr pardoned ALL in Iran Contra to keep it from getting to H. W. He should not be there.

    I suspect William Barr’s memo MAY have been his attempt to appeal to the Trump administration by ingratiating himself to Trump. It could be he has set himself up as a trojan horse, knowing Trump is not one to “look a gift horse in the mouth”. He has signaled that his loyalty is not to Trump necessarily by telegraphing about his formerly close relationship with Mueller and the high esteem he has for his integrity. Knowing how close association with this administration can only tarnish the reputation of those in collusion with it, the fact that he even wants the AG position would seem to recommend him, since the only way through is to find the moral triumph in order to emerge unscathed.

      @Stephen Mason This is what I’m hoping… but I wouldn’t be surprised if my hopes are dashed. It’s happened over and over since Trump became president.

    The issue is that many people we hear today say whatever needs to be said to get what they want, so it is not easy to know what to believe.

    Well let’s hope this guy wrote the memo to bamboozle trumputin into nominating him so he can get in there to do the right thing, _but_ I have my doubts!

    Barr during the hearing at 2:15 quote : “This is what I will do to Mueller ” end quote

    Like I said before it’s funny how they put every word and everything in the script but the word “helicopters”. They don’t even say “The president is CRAZY, he’s like someone mentally unstable claiming that helicopters are following him”.

    Mueller doesn’t care about himself or what people can say about him…he only cares about what people will say about him in the future, he only cares about his legacy. If Trump is guilty, Mueller will want to end up on the right side of history, he will come down on Trump like a tone of bricks. He will make sure everyone knows his works for future generations to come. This, my friend, is history being written and Mueller knows that

    Due to High crimes in office as president of the United States! Impeachment is necessary and warranted! From conspiracy, collusion, obstruction of justice! To miss use of campaign funds and miss use of foundational funds!

    Bill Barr is a master manipulator. There was that email that Sen Blumenthal read for which he didn’t want to give an answer. He’s very political and that email was unexpected for him. He hadn’t realised the reporter would send that email to Blumenthal. This guy is the safest choice.

    Do not get lost in the words. What you analyze are always about words. Talk about facts. You get lost in the words. You play a fair game, they do not. If you do not realize that now and quickly you can lose the war. This is a dark and dirty war. Wake up America!

    Barrs not there to deflect Muller as there’s no there there . If there was a there there then Muller would have exposed it . What the democrats are worried about is Barr will have to act by the whistle blowers to digging up a few skeletons and deeds from the past administrations

    Barr’s job is to delay till the GOP primaries then scream election quiet and Gop takes their chances in the general meanwhile they will stack courts destroy the FBI CIA EPA and nato just for kicks.

    Rosenstein would be the best choice for AG. Rosenstein did say The People would find the report worthwhile. Barr is NOT an institutionalist, he’s a proponent of the unitary executive theory. He wrote that Mueller had no reason and no right to even question Trump about Obstruction of Justice. Barr’s opinion is contrary to legal statutes, to our Constitution and the to intent of its founders.

     As Daniel Hemel, a University of Chicago law professor, notes,
    .. .”obstruction of justice was one of the charges leveled against King George III in the Declaration of Independence, making clear that the founding generation did not believe that heads of state were immune from obstruction charges.
    Google: Obstructing Justice Through Pardons Is an Impeachable Offense (americanprogress)

    Barr is NOT someone to trust!

    Why is the crook in the WH allowed to chose anyone? For all we know he is a Russian spy and there very likely could be more than one. Mr. Mueller where are you?

    In October 2016 Barr said Comey was doing the right thing when re-opening the can of worms that is the Clinton e-mail matter before the election. In May 2017 he said the exact opposite. Now he claims he didnt know in 2016 that Comey did this on his own, which is interesting considering that Comey in 2016, prior to Barr’s comment, clearly stated that nobody from the government, DOJ and FBI knows what he is going to say in a moment.

    A partisan hack. He covers both positions of trump with that flip-flop.

    To me Barr is dangerous because he seems more intelligent than Trump but he is still selfish and looking out for himself so that means doing whatever he can to hurt Mueller. No decent person EVER volunteers to work for Trump

    Are you serious!!! No one believes this B.S come on you got to a mushroom to believe this. He didn’t give full pledge to the officials say. For crying out loud can the judiciary committee for once not fall for B.S is your committee a dog and pony show? Cause I have seen guilty bull walk out with no consequence for what other countries punish ppl for. Like Zuckerberg who got fined,in the UK who is still letting tied parties use our info.
