salon.com/2019/05/02/bil… Bill Barr was too scared to show up at today’s House Judiciary hearing. Well, he has every reason to be. He’s in an untenable position, trying to cover up for Donald Trump, i.e. 270 pounds of guilt wrapped in an orange-skinned wrap.
One wonders why Barr has taken on this task of masterminding Trump’s cover-up. I have a theory: For the “cover-up general”, this represents a major professional challenge that could be his crown and glory of a career of doing evil.
The main GOP tactic to protect Trump appears to be taking umbrage at the idea that big, important men like themselves should have to answer to questions from the common people. Fox News viewers dig it, but I’m guessing most others won’t like that at all.
Trump and Barr are flouting the law because they don’t think Democrats have the gonads to enforce it. Democrats frankly have no choice: If Barr keeps resisting subpoenas, they should have him arrested.
