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
.@SenKamalaHarris: "Has the president or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested you open an investigation into anyone?"

BARR: "..... ah ....."

HARRIS: "Seems like something you should be able to answer."

BARR: "I don't know ......."
KamalaHarris: "Has the president or anyone at the WH ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone?"

Attorney General William Barr: "Im trying to grapple with the word 'suggest.'...They have not asked me to open an investigation"
Sen Leahy asks Barr if he commits to not interfere in ongoing investigations.

Barr: "I will supervise those investigations as attorney general"

Leahy: "Will you let them reach natural conclusions without interference from the White House?"

Barr: "Yes"
If Trump feels an investigation is unfounded he "does not have to sit there constitutionally and allow it to run its course. The president could terminate the proceeding and it would not be a corrupt intent bc he was being falsely accused."

(Not true)
BARR: "I'm not in the business of determining when lies are told to the American people. I'm in the business of determining when a crime has been committed."

Barr is unfit to be the AG of the United States. #BarrHearing
Kamala Harris: "This Attorney General lacks all credibility and has, I think, compromised the American public's ability to believe that he is a purveyor of justice."

Q: "Should he resign?"

Kamala Harris: "Yes."

Chris Wallace: Some opinion people who appear on this network, who may be pushing a political agenda. But, you know, we have to deal in facts. And the fact is that this letter from [Mueller]… was a clear indication that the [Mueller] was upset, very upset.
Reporter: “Madam Speaker, did the AG commit a crime?”

@SpeakerPelosi: “He lied to Congress. If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law - not the President of the United States and not the Attorney General."
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: "Today the Attorney General joined with his supervisor, the president of the United States, decided to show the American people that this is not a democracy."
Sen. Chuck Schumer: "Attorney General Barr's comments are as close as it gets to saying the president should be above the law."
