    The reason you post the way you do and just insult people without addressing the topic is because you can't defend the behavior so you side track the discussion. It's very obvious.

    Re: After Trump’s Attacks on Justice Dept., Barr Says He Will Not ‘Be Bullied’

    There has been a long standing WH/DOJ policy that the WH does not comment on specific DOJ trials and specific trial individuals to avoid the impression of favoritism and political verdicts.

    Trump violated this policy with Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and now with Roger Stone.

    Anyone that read the initial 2018 Barr memo to the WH regarding presidential obstruction of justice (can't happen) realized that Barr would do/say whatever was necessary to replace Jeff Sessions as AG.

    Barr is a heat-seeking missile aimed at the heart of democracy.


    Has Trump expressed any sympathy to the families of the COVID dead yet?

    January 30, 2020, Tim Shay, long-time advisor to Barr, was named interim USA for Wash. D.C. which oversees the:

    --Mike Flynn case. Recently changed its recommendation from jail time to probation. Very, very unusual.
    --Stone case. Changed recommendation to less time. Very, very unusual.
    --James Comey leak case. Based on very thin predicate.
    --Andrew McCabe case. Grand jury declined to indict, but DOJ hasn't moved to clear him. Very, very unusual.
    --Eric Prince case referred by Intel Committee for lying to Congress. No movement.

    And now Barr claims to be innocent as a rose and upset at Trump's "meddling?" Color me skeptical. If anything, Barr feels that Trump is being too blatant about it, and desires the corruption of the Justice Department to continue a little less visibly.
    It's almost as if Barr is concerned about the appearance of impropriety. Regardless of Barr's intentions, it proves that we should all be fundamentally concerned about such appearances and that what Trump is doing is clearly wrong.

    There is obviously some insanity going on in the DoJ right now, for Barr to come out with this.

    I can't wait to see what it is.
    Don't believe something just because you want to.

    How does willingly bending over with a jar of Vaseline equate to being bullied?

    Seems to me that it was his way of saying, "hey, I am not directly the presidents bitch. It's a coincident that I do exactly what he wants all the time."

    This last incident with Stone made things very uncomfortable for Barr. That is all he was saying.

    I am old enough to remember the blowback that came Nixon's way when he stuck his nose into the Charles Manson trial. In my opinion William Barr is one of the most despicable characters in government ever.

    What's productive about coming into a thread and your entire contribution is a drive by insult? The AG decided it was important to redeem his image as a Trump sycophant, so we're discussing that. If you don't want to discuss it, there's lot of other alternatives.
