Bill Barr is a cancer on our body politic and must be excised

 indexbarr1
“Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, when we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or too frightened, when we fail to speak up and speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice.”
Robert F. Kennedy  64th U.S. Attorney General

“The fundamental problem is that he does not believe in the central tenet of our system of government—that no person is above the law. In chilling terms, Barr’s own words make clear his long-held belief in the need for a virtually autocratic executive who is not constrained by countervailing powers within our government under the constitutional system of checks and balances.”   Donald Ayer

 

It's time to get rid of Bill Barr,

The worst ever A.G. by far.

He isn't our lawyer,

Like Trump,  a destroyer

Of what our core principles are.

  • 1. Barr is the worst AG since Jeff Sessions.
    2. I'm not sure what to make of his interview with ABC News. Maybe he meant it when he said the tweeting should stop, in which case there will be a new acting AG. But since the AG serves at the President's pleasure, maybe he is knuckling under and the ABC interview was a charade, sort of the same as Bolton saying he was willing to testify.

  • In reply to jack:

    Sessions did at least follow norms by recusing himself from the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and Trump's possible collusion in that effort.

  • In reply to jack:

    Sessions never did anything that resulted in the alarm in both the DOJ and the Judiciary that Barr has caused. His policies were far from enlightened, but not corrupt.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    The question, again based on the ABC interview, is whether he acted independently, as he claimed, in pulling the sentencing recommendation, or that was a charade.

    Seeing that our buddy Blago is now back in the news, there is Paul Lisnek's point whether the Orange Toad's disrespect for the law will be manifested not in meddling directly with the DoJ, but with a bunch of pardons about Nov. 12, regardless of which way the election goes.

  • I've been surprised every day that Mr. Barr is still at work, after what he said about the president making it impossible to do his job. Maybe he'll get fed up and quit.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Headline today "Report: AG Barr tells people he might quit over Trump tweets"

    If he has any integrity, he will.

  • In reply to jack:

    But he won't.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Considering that the "report" was sourced by "The administration official [who] was not authorized to discuss Barr’s private remarks and requested anonymity" (AP) while a DoJ spokesperson denied it, I'm putting my money on the "report."
