Barr — the most ludicrous AG the United States has probably ever seen has as expected lied and whined his way through a Capital hearing about the monstrous abuses of power committed by the DOJ and Trump. As many suspected, Barr took the stand defending almost every major decision made including the flagrant violations of constitutionally protected rights that many Americans enjoy (including the right to peacefully protest.)

“Many of the Democrats on this committee have attempted to discredit me by conjuring up a narrative that I am simply the president’s factotum who disposes of criminal cases according to his instructions,” Barr said in his opening statement. “Judging from the letter inviting me to this hearing, that appears to be your agenda today.”
Politico reports that Democrats and leading investigators also grilled Barr on whether or not the DOJ had openly discussed Trump ‘s re-election efforts as members of the cabinet.
“I’m a member of the Cabinet and there’s an election going on, so obviously the topic comes up,” he said.
