It’s disappointing to see a number of Democrats in Congress and the media continue to cling to the hoax that was Trump-Russia collusion while simultaneously ignoring the REAL crime that took place – namely the attempted coup against a duly elected president. Ah, but HOW REFRESHING to have an Attorney General who is so willing to tell it like it is and a president who, despite 24/7 attacks against him based on layers of lies after lies, continues to fight for the working men and women of America.
Justice is on the march and President Trump and William Barr are leading the way…
…When asked about the president’s use of the term “witch hunt,” Barr said he was comfortable with it.
“Because at the time he was saying he was innocent and that he was being falsely accused. And if you’re falsely accused, you would think that something was a witch hunt. I have to say when you step back and look at this, two-and-a-half years of his administration — three years of the Trump campaign and first part of his administration — he has been hammered for something — for allegedly conspiring with the Russians. We now know that was simply false,” Barr said.
“I use what words I use and it was an investigation. But I think if I had been falsely accused, I would be comfortable saying it was a witch hunt.”
Barr also called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s charge he lied under oath to Congress and committed a crime ‘laughable.’
“I think it’s a laughable charge and I think it’s largely being made to try to discredit me partly because they may be concerned about the outcome of a review of what happened during the election. But obviously, you can look at the face of my testimony and see on its face there is nothing inaccurate about it,” Barr said.
He said that he was ready to be the new target for Democrats. “I thought I was in a position where this kind of criticism really wouldn’t bother me very much.”
Barr called the contempt charge recommendation passed by the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee “part of the circus.”
“It’s part of the usual political circus that’s being played out. It doesn’t surprise me,” he said, adding he doesn’t feel threatened.
Barr also said he was surprised that Robert Mueller didn’t come to conclusion on whether President Trump committed obstruction of justice.
