    Why Barr Should Resign

    Why? Because he is a hack.

    Here's someone explaining that in a more eloquent fashion.

    After Attorney General William Barr releases his redacted version of the report from special counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday, he should resign. His blatant partisanship disqualifies him from continuing as the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. Neither Congress nor the public will trust that he has been objective and fair in what he has decided to make public of the report, nor will they believe that he can handle any further issues surrounding wrongdoing by President Trump with integrity.

    Let us consider the record of Barr in his short time as attorney general in this administration...according to Barr, Mueller refused to exonerate Trump on charges of obstructing justice. Barr overruled that determination after only a few short days of examining the two year investigation into the issue and concluded that Trump did not obstruct justice. Barr claimed that the refusal by Mueller to come to a conclusion on the criminal liability for obstruction “left it up to” Barr to reach a conclusion. But that cannot be true. The refusal by Mueller to exonerate Trump was not an invitation for Barr to annul the determination of the special counsel.

    By exonerating Trump, Barr brazenly violated the spirit and purpose of the special counsel regulations. The point of those rules, and the special prosecutor statute they replaced, was to take the political Justice Department out of prosecutorial decision making when a president was involved, precisely because presidents should not be investigating themselves. Yet Barr, appointed by Trump, injected himself along with politics smack into that decision, doing what would be expected of anyone beholden to the president. That was wrong and unforgivable.

    I'll withhold judgement until after the report drops. And then I'll wait until I hear from Mueller and his staff testifiy before the Senate and the House.

    Without a AG who is independent of the President and solely focused on his job enforcing the rule of law our freedom and liberties are severely threatened. Barr must be removed by Congress for violating his oath of office.

    Actually, the reason for the special prosecutor is to take the DOJ out of the investigative process. The decision whether to prosecute is ultimately the decision of the AG.

    Barr is just doing his job in accordance with the law.

    Oh the hypocrisy!
    Most of the Trump haters have put their undying faith behind the Mueller investigation for the last two years even when it was rumored Trump would fire Mueller... So now they don't like the Mueller report results, and their next step is to throw a temper tantrum demanding Bill Barr resign.

    Oh waaa, waaa, waaa....boohoo boo

    You do realize--but, maybe you don't--that no one with any intelligence, for one second, believes that the Mueller report exonerates Trump, nor do they believe that an innocent person obstructs justice in a case where he did nothing wrong. So, spew away. No one who matters is buying. But, you are certainly free to preach to the choir.

    Im going to wait for the indictments of FBI people, DoJ people, etc. there are quite a few of them. That’s when we will get our real answers from.

    But at least now all the dem’s can do is try to harass the president through 2020 on to 2024... then I guess they will try to burn his house down! Meanwhile, no one is doing the people’s business.
    Antifa’s job is to do the democrats dirty work.

    Oh, it will be so much fun when the GOP is relegated to about 20 senators and fewer than a hundred Congressmen with Buttigieg or Warren as president. Trump has set enough precedent that maybe locking up wing nuts will become as acceptable as locking up Mexicans.
