GOP Rep. Rips Into Trump, Barr After ‘Carefully’ Reading Mueller Report

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) tore into President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr while offering his critical analysis of the redacted Mueller report in a Twitter thread Saturday afternoon. Amash argued that Trump “engaged in impeachable conduct” and Barr “intended to mislead the public” about Mueller’s findings.

Republican Amash Breaks Ranks, Says Trump’s Conduct Is ‘Impeachable’

The subject of speculation about a third-party presidential bid in 2020, Amash also said on Twitter that he’s concluded -- after reading Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted 448-page report -- that Attorney General William Barr “has deliberately misrepresented” the findings. "Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” said Amash, 39, who arrived in Congress as pa...


In Barr, Trump has found his champion and advocate

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump could only be delighted to have his attorney general in El Salvador, dealing with his biggest issue: illegal immigration. Yet Barr did even better for his boss. In interviews from the Central American country, he's been offering cryptic comments suggesting the Russia probe unfairly targeted Trump.

This Week: Putin Praises Mueller, Barr Goes Full Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller earned an unlikely defender this week: Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Putin referred to Mueller’s work as “exotic” and “very objective” — a far-cry from how President Trump himself characterized the probe this week. The President unilaterally concluded Friday that the investigation began as an attempt to spy on his campaign. Those behind the supposed spying deserved “long jail sentences,” he added....

The Talking Points Are Identical

On Fox News Friday, contributor Katie Pavlich took umbrage at the suggestion that Attorney General Bill Barr is just “repeating talking points” pushed by Trumpworld. Barr’s investigation into the true origins of the Russia probe is simply, Pavlich said, an effort “to get government accountability.” But the quotes speak for themselves. “No collusion,” Barr said over and over in the unprecedented press conference he gave ahead of the Mueller report’s April 18 release. The attorney general repeat...

The Attorney General Is Speaking The Language Of Fox News

Take a look at the interviews Barr gave to Fox News and the  this week. While enumerating the steps he will take to investigate the origins of the Russia probe, Barr — intentionally or by osmosis — repeated numerous talking points used by conservative ideologues over the years to discredit special counsel R...

Barr: Probe Into Russia Investigation’s Origins Has Yielded ‘Inadequate’ Explanations

Weeks into an investigation of the origins of the FBI's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Attorney General William Barr said Friday that the probe has provided more questions than answers due to the “inadequate” and in some cases inconsistent answers he's been given from the officials involved.Asked during an interview with Fox News whether he knew exactly when the FBI began its investigation into the Trump campaign, Barr said he had not yet identified a reliable ti...

Barr Calls Pelosi’s Accusation That He Lied Under Oath ‘Laughable’

Attorney General William Barr called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) accusation that he lied under oath to Congress a “laughable charge” on Fox News. Pelosi was referring to Barr’s assertion that he was not aware of any concerns special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators had about his summary of the report, though it was revealed that Mueller himself sent Barr a letter detailing his qualms.

Barr Continues Doing Trump’s Bidding By ‘Investigating The Investigators’

Attorney General William Barr is loyally carrying out President Donald Trump’s pet project, leaning hard into the President’s tweeted screams to “investigate the investigators” who he believes launched the Russia probe to undermine his candidacy.

Ukraine Prosecutor Says No Probe Into Biden, Despite Giuliani’s Efforts

Scarborough Hammers Barr For ‘Laughing’ About ‘Breaking The Law’

Attorney General William Barr has made light of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s recommendation that he be held in contempt at least twice (that we know of). During a farewell event for former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein earlier this month, Barr joked that he set a “record” for how quickly an attorney general had been held in contempt. On Wednesday, Barr reportedly approached House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and asked her if she brought “your handcuffs.” Per bystander: While waiting for...
