And then the questioning began
But they did not question
They made speeches
When he tried to answer
The shouted over
When he started to answer
They shouted, "Reclaiming my time."
Reclaiming my time
Time waisted
Time lost
Opportunity cost
"I am reclaiming my time."
I am livid
I am enraged
Bill Barr at last in Congress
But the Dems have not engaged
They speechify and cut him off
And waste the nation's time

Bill Barr’s tenure as Attorney General has led to an unprecedented politicization of the #DOJ. I submitted multiple documents that outline his efforts to suppress constitutional rights & tip the scales of justice in favor of the President. #BarrHearing (1/8)

Attorney General William Barr is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee and is expected to be questioned about the politicization of DOJ and alleged abuse of power.

We’ve been investigating Barr, here’s some of what we’ve uncovered. #BarrHearing
americanoversight.org/investigation/…
Earlier this month, documents we obtained showed Barr met with President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in August 2019 — even as the Ukraine investigation was ramping up.

According to email records, the meeting had been requested by Barr on Aug. 19, contradicting the Justice Department’s previous assertions that Barr dropped-by incidentally.

Sec. of State Tillerson told Trump no, and said it would be ILLEGAL interference in an ongoing investigation.

@AmbJohnBolton called it an obstruction of justice.

2. At its heart, the prosecution of the Turkish bank Halkbank involves a multibillion-dollar criminal scheme to evade U.S. sanctions against #Iran.

According to great reporting by several news outlets, Trump directed Barr to try to stop prosecution of the bank and its associates

The answer is no.

Erdoğan tries with Trump, and Barr kicks into action.

If we want to beat Trump, we should pick someone who won't be pushing 80 at Inauguration Day who can reduce Trump to the stuttering mess #KamalaHarris achieved with AG Barr at the #BarrHearing.
Warren is more progressive than Bernie and everyone is more progressive than Biden.
These absurd reductionist arguments from the white male pundit class who couldn't see women in 2016 is how we got Trump in the first place (69% of white men voted Trump and another 5% voted 3rd party, so sit the heck down white dudes).

The race is NOT between Biden and Bernie.
Bernie's hemorrhaging money, Biden doesn't have real contributors, just corporations. When the debates begin and Bernie starts wagging his finger and Biden reveals his policy is "I was Obama's VP & you loved Barack!" others will shine and drown out these two Establishment dudes.

Please help impress upon people that no one “hates” Trump. They DON’T KNOW HIM. The media never publicizes his successes, they have never attended a Rally, or listened to him on TV. Most #Resist are simply surrounding themselves with like-minded non-thinkers. They are, in fact,
2/ uncomfortable thinking outside the box or even knowing “friends” will discover they might think for themselves. Most believe the lies they hear and are comfortable repeating them. But if you were to ask, and get an HONEST answer; they can’t tell you WHY.
3/ The other problem is that they see our #Democrat lawmakers behaving like children: bringing fried chicken to the aborted #BarrHearing & even placing a ceramic chicken where Barr would have sat. These antics only serve to reveal the dismally low IQ of our elected officials.

It appears that Attorney General Barr chose not to include highly pertinent information in recent responses to Congress. #BarrHearing (1/5)
Beyond that, he seems to have firmly embraced @realDonaldTrump 's view that the U.S. Attorney General should watch out for the President’s political interests, rather than watching out for the public interest. #BarrHearing (2/5)
This is wildly contrary to the sworn duty of all members of the Justice Department to “do justice without fear or favor.” #BarrHearing (3/5)

I saw 1 thing today-that Barr & Trump don't care, no matter what we do they're going to duck & dodge & lie. There's only ONE thing that we can do that will surely get them OUT of DC, we have to focus hard, do the req'd work & get a Dem into the Oval. No matter what! #BarrHearing
2-Dems have to cont to hold every one of these hearings and let their obstruction, bad behavior & whatever gleaned evidence, trash whatever legit chance Trump has, but WE have to elect another President. We need to start NOW.
3-What we did in the Midterms is nothing compared to what we have to accomplish in 2020.. we not only have to replace Trump but we need to keep the majority in the House and get it back in the Senate..every one of us needs to help in these efforts. It. Is. Massive. Life or death.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn on Mueller's team of prosecutors: "Do you consider these lawyers to be the best and the brightest in the field?"

Barr: "Not necessarily"

The AG of the United States is disparaging his own department. Barr has got to go.
Sen. Mazie Hirono to AG Barr: "Now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani, or Kellyanne Conway, or any of the other people who sacrificed their once-decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office"
Sen @MazieHirono to Barr: “You lied to Congress…you did exactly what I thought you’d do, that’s why I voted against your confirmation. I expected you would try to protect the president. And indeed, you did.” #BarrHearing

This whole #BarrHearing is worthless.

Barr is just sitting here taking ad hom, personal attacks from lunatics like Maxie Hirono and Dick Blumenthal.

Dog and pony show.
“You’ve gone 7 minutes, and you’ve slandered this man from top to bottom.” - Graham to Hirono
One more comment, then I’m taking a nap. (More productive use of time):

These idiot Republican senators keep operating on the premise set by the left - that Russians meddled to help Trump.

That’s NOT what the report said.

Russia targeted Bernie, Black Lives Matter, etc.

FACT CHECKS: AG Barr just finished his opening statement.

He has repeatedly lied about the #MuellerReport to protect Trump. Today’s #BarrHearing is no different. He’s lying on national TV. No amount of spin can hide the facts—here are 5 big Barr lies.

RT to spread the truth.

Lots of new material in Barr's opening statement

Barr's team pressed Mueller on March 5th about Mueller's decision not to make a recommendation on obstruction

Mueller didn't have an answer - they were "still formulating" their excuse

#BarrHearing
A key point made by Barr - if Mueller KNEW he wasn't going to come to a conclusion on obstruction, why did he investigate it for over a year?

That's not what DOJ resources are for.

DOJ doesn't run smear campaigns.

It prosecutes, or it doesn't.

#BarrHearing
Barr brought up 18 USC § 1512(c)(2)

You'll be hearing more about statute that shortly on @HumanEvents

It matters more than you might suspect

Senator Graham: "can't say I've read it all, but I've read most of it."

Way to establish confidence in the process! #BarrHearing
Senator Graham recites Mueller's resume. "He has served this country in a variety of circumstances long and well. For those who took time to read the report, I think it was well-written, very thorough."

When asked by @SenatorShaheen why he wants a probe into the origins of the Russia probe, Barr says because **he believes the US government spied on the Trump campaign.**

Barr is a full-blown conspiracy theorist just like Nunes and Trump.

Bill Barr is the Devin Nunes of Roy Cohn's.
Barr's review of Mueller's probe will be Nunes' conspiracy theorist investigations, the sequel: Carter Page FISA, deep state's imaginary US spy who entrapped Trump officials, the Uranium One/Clinton faux scandal, butter emails, and of course, a leak probe.
