@JoyceWhiteVance @HC_Richardson @NicolleDWallace Who in the DOJ could have possibly believed William Barr’s performance? He was asking for discretion so he could carry out his autocratic schemes. #BarrCorruption #BarrCoverUp #BarrLies #DisbarBarr
@NicolleDWallace Winner, winner, kitchen dinner. That & he probably had a mutiny on his hands in the Kennedy Building if he didn’t go to bat for the rule of law. It’s doubtful anyone was pacified by this performance.
Third scenario - he loathes the volume of horrific press he’s getting.
Maybe Barr really is angry. Perhaps his institutionalist instincts really did finally kick in... the vestiges of his conscience stirred... and dammit, he just had to take a stand for the rule of the law. Maybe.
Or maybe he was just annoyed that Trump was giving away the game.
