“Mr. Huber is conducting his work… in cooperation with the Inspector General. The additional matters raised… fall within the scope of his existing mandate, and I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete, and objective evaluation…”
On March 21, a Chair ceremony was held for former AG Sessions.
Attending was Deputy AG Rosenstein, Barr, Huber, former acting AG Whitaker, and Trump’s recent pick for associate AG, Jessie Liu. (Liu has since withdrawn her name from consideration.)
He continued: “There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things, I would say treasonous things, against our country.”
Trump's Comms Director Tim Murtaugh sent out a memo to all TV producers regarding the “credibility of certain guests.”
In particular, the memo cited a list of “guests who made outlandish, false claims, without evidence, on your airwaves.”
He followed up by noting the question was if the spying “was adequately predicated.”
The implications behind Barr’s comments, particularly as a newly installed attorney general, are notable.
On April 15, @DevinNunes sent his 8 criminal referrals to Barr, as he had promised on April 7:
Neither Nunes, nor his referral letter, identified the 8 individuals or the specific details of the alleged crimes.
