United States Attorney General William Barr, who was highly respected throughout Washington by both parties has recently become the center of brutal partisan attacks from Dem lawmakers since his appointment.
Now the AG, is fighting back.
Biz Pack Review noted, U.S. Attorney General William Barr dismissed left-wing complaints that he’s overzealous in his defense of President Trump amid Congress’ endless investigations, saying Democrats have repeatedly moved the goal posts. And that’s unfair and wrong — and everyone knows it, even though no one admits it.
“I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump, and I thought it was damaging for the presidency over the long haul,” Barr told the Wall Street Journal.
Barr underscored that the executive branch needs to be strong and independent, and not subordinate to partisan legislators who want the president to fail.
“At every grave juncture, the presidency has done what it is supposed to do, which is to provide leadership and direction,” Barr said. However, he suggested that in the current divisive political climate, that becomes almost possible to do.
AG Barr added: “If you destroy the presidency and make it an errand boy for Congress, we’re going to be a much weaker and more divided nation.”
Until Barr was appointed Attorney General in February 2019, he was a respected litigator who was widely admired for his integrity. But as soon as he joined the Trump administration, he was immediately attacked as a partisan puppet. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Barr also recently joked about Democrats’ toothless contempt motion.
“This must be a record of an Attorney General being proposed for contempt within a hundred days of taking office,” Barr laughed, as the audience erupted into giggles.
