Barr Insists That He’s Protecting The Presidency, Not Just Trump

Attorney General William Barr is insisting that he signed on to be President Donald Trump’s attack dog to protect the institution of the presidency — not just the man currently holding the title.

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.

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.
