One of the Democrats top talking points is that AG Bill Barr is working for the president and not the American people. That’s an insane statement. Every AG is nominated by the president and of course, they prejudiced towards their boss.
Eric Holder told Congress that he was Barack Obama’s wingman and no Democrat got upset, even when he refused to testify on selling guns to drug cartels in Mexico in the Fast and Furious scandal. But, the bottom line is that Bill Barr is only reporting on what Robert Mueller’s report says.
Having failed to prove collusion, the Democrats are now saying that the report that found no collusion is being misrepresented by Barr.
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume called out the Washington Post for criticizing Attorney General William Barr’s loyalty to President Donald Trump.
He argued the Post said nothing when former Attorney General Eric Holder declared himself a “wingman” to then-President Barack Obama.
“Remember when the Post got all over Eric Holder for stonewalling Congress, being found in contempt and for declaring himself Barack Obama’s ‘wingman[?]’ Neither do I,” Hume tweeted Wednesday.
The Post’s editorial board wasted little time in posting an op-ed after Barr testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday, charging that the attorney general had “lit his reputation on fire.”
The missive also accused Barr of issuing a “highly misleading” memorandum to Congress in March highlighting the fact that the Mueller report had not found any evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia nor any cause to proceed with obstruction of justice charges.
“I’m still enjoying what I’m doing, there’s still work to be done,” Holder told the Tom Joyner radio program. “I’m still the President’s wingman, so I’m there with my boy.”
