THREAD. The completely bonkers $#^&* we got from Bill Barr yesterday:

1. Could not answer whether the President has the power to move the date of the election. (he doesn't)
2. Wouldn't acknowledge that if a person not suspected of committing any crime is detained, forced into a car where they are not free to leave ("in custody"), driven to an unknown location, and questioned, that the person is under arrest (they are)
3. Stated that law enforcement are allowed to use force -- including pepper spray and tear gas -- in a non-emergency situation to disperse peaceful protesters engaged in lawful assembly
4. Could not immediately state that foreign assistance to a presidential campaign is categorically prohibited
5. Had zero evidence (and admitted as much under oath) to back up his statement that large numbers of people who cast their votes by mail could end up "rigging" the election
6. Unable to explain why the "antifa movement" -- which he conceded are loosely-affiliated groups/individuals -- are considered "terrorists" [also did not address why the same rationale would not apply to right-wing extremists]
7. Said he wouldn't open an investigation even in light of evidence indicating that the president may have committed a crime (specifically in reference to the Stone commutation/quid pro quo)
[will add on this as I think of more things but he was Off. The. Rails. yesterday so it's hard to keep track of everything]
8. Oh! Would not commit to following DOJ’s policy against releasing politically-sensitive information (I.e. Durham “investigation”) right before election
9. Declared that there is no such thing as systemic racism in policing. Because you know, that settles it 🙄
10. Offered “proof” that there is no systemic racism by noting that 8 unarmed Black people and 11 unarmed White people have been killed by police this year 🤔

MATH MUCH??? (only 15% of the population is Black)
