    I only hope that Barr stays in jail longer than Stone and the others!

    • But he’s an old man! The reason he said Stone had to have a reduced sentence.

      Agree!! He is a LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR and very arrogant and he does NOT care if he only “works” for Donald Trump . He is a disgrace. But he isn’t going to be AG forever!!!

      @Lorraine van Lelyveld AWWW , YOU MAD?

  2. Barf did not look very good coming out of this.

    • So what? he doesn’t care, that’s for sure. The only way to hold him accountable is to vote blue in November.

      @Ken White I did. Multiple times they asked him a question and gave him no time to answer. When he tried to answer they interrupted him and said ‘I reclaim my time’.
      Republicans were giving up their time to speak to allow Barr to answer questions from the Dems. It was a clown show.

    • @Sparky McSpark so what? He can go testify for 11hrs like miss Clinton if he needs more time no ones stopping him.

    • @Michaels amazing videos ok 👌 lol 😆 🤣 😂

  3. Barr needs to be in jail…it’s really that simple. : )

  4. Eric Swalwell is definitely getting better at cross examination. Dude flat out smoked him in that exchange.

    Barr’s smirk says it all.

  10. I’m neither an American nor a politician and I know all the things Barr is “not aware of”.

  11. “There’s a lot of evidence in the president’s tweets.” Exactly why the Attorney General won’t read them. I guess the threat of a lot more investigations didn’t include the Roger Stone/ President Trump “coincidences.”

    • Feb 13, 2020 “I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr told ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas in an interview re: the Roger Stone case. He went on to say the president’s Tweets “make it impossible to do my job.” Bill Barr committed perjury at least 3 times in his testimony yesterday.

    • @gypsymama I love it when you guys can bring it like you just did….Awesome! #staysafe

    • So a tweet is now consider evidence lol you people lack critical thinking skills I think.

    • @vitor_8889 the only other possibilities would be that 1- Trump doesn’t author his tweets, or; 2- just because he says it doesn’t mean it’s so (intimated by the AG, so he ignores them). You know e-mails are considered a source for evidence in court, right? If Trump isn’t gaslighting us with his tweets, then they reflect his thinking.

    • @vitor_8889 How’s that for critical/ analytical thinking? Just reply by pointing out the “failed thinking” in that line of thought.

  12. Was so funny every time he was asked a question a didn’t like, he looked at Jim Jordan as if he could help him out.

  13. So he didn’t read the Muller report either because the Tweet about Roger Stone is in there and was redacted by his DOJ. How can he summarise something for the American people that he hasn’t read properly?

    • Doug Thomson | July 29, 2020 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      Larry Smith Larry, that statement was perjury. He has admitted to reading Trump’s emails in the past and he does read Trump’s tweets now.

    • Mary Johnson | July 29, 2020 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      How did he determine the president’s involvement in the Mueller report if he never read it

    • @Doug Thomson I knew it was perjury – I just wish Swalwell could have called him out for lying. There were too many missed opportunities.

    • @Mary Johnson That’s my point- he is clearly lying about never seeing that tweet before as he read the Muller report, redacted that tweet and then told everyone “There’s nothing to see here”

  14. When Barr talks about requiring a reliable predicate for an investigation, he means “are they a Democrat?”. If the answer is yes, he will start the investigation right away.

      @johansphone that is a very weak excuse as a matter of fact I wouldn’t accept it from my kids cant accept it from a college graduate. Sorry very weak

    • @Mark Cothran This is a cultural revolution that wants to erase the board and start over with reparations, open borders, socialism, no police, and no constitution. The radical left will control Biden like a puppet, they already do. Are you ready for this? We will so poor you won’t know what hit you and you better not complain or they will shut you down before you finished complaining. I lived longer, I’ve lived more, and experienced more than you, I know Trump and the Republicans are our bet hope right now. I use to be Democrat, they are insane now. I’m not saying I’m smarter than you, just been around the block more. I know you’ve met wealthy liberals, but they are protected by their money. I’m not, are you?

      @Paul D I’m not sure that you are older than but I haven’t seen workers benefit from any administration since Clinton and that has been some time ago. If you are my age you were raised with the same values I was and the most important thing anyone can do is be honest. There is no way anybody can say this administration has ever been honest. I sure haven’t seen the financial growth that apparently Trump supporters have seen. I am raising two grandsons who are teenagers I have a disabled wife. If I didnt own my home already I couldn’t support my family and Trump hasn’t helped. At my age I cant wait 4 more years

      @Paul D Congratulations…your delusional…God and Jesus are watching…I’m embarrassed for you..L’chaim from Jacova born March 11…in Bethlehem…The one who knows God…and Jesus…for you it went over your head and not into your heart…So guess what…Your statement is empirically wrong…On its face and in reality.

    • @Jacqueline Wernett OMG what drugs are you on ? You’ve gone mad.

    The Tweets are in the Muller report. He said he wish he wouldn’t tweet.

      @Pam Deshane
      You play cut and paste with a comment whining about democrats reading their statements? And find no irony in this?

    • Jeannette Coleman | July 29, 2020 at 11:28 AM | Reply

      @Babba Ganoush I agree nothing but Toadies. He has his administration in place so he can further do his dirt without repercussions.

      @James Sebela The nazi is your kind that believe in Hitler’s laws. PARROT. You don’t believe in our laws or the Constitution. You want to destroy this country and our military.

      @Pam Deshane The lefties/Dems don’t like Barr because he poses a genuine threat of exposing their criminality. Durham likely will not issue a ‘report’, but rather a package of indictments. But I disagree with Barr. The Stone case should have been completely thrown out as malicious prosecution, pure and simple. Barr said Obama and Biden are not under investigation. But Yes they are, at least in the public domain. One can not investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia frame-up scam without being led to the Obama WH.

    Barr seems blithely unaware of the world around him. He should be removed from office immediately!

  17. Raza The Rambler | July 29, 2020 at 10:15 AM | Reply

    He gave himself away as a loyalist with his dancing around the question of accepting friends aid during an election.
    Loyalty to the president over the people of this country is definitely a nod to facisim.

  18. Mark Cothran | July 29, 2020 at 10:23 AM | Reply

    He looks like an under boss being questioned about the boss.

  19. Thomas Gregg | July 29, 2020 at 10:40 AM | Reply

    Excuse me. Did he just threaten everyone he will investigate them? If he had his way a lot more people would be under investigation?

  20. Bar says “I don’t believe that” well the fact that trump said he would pardon Stone in a tweet, and it actually gets done…. then interface IS real.

      MsWheely I am going to show you how ignorant virtually everyone posting here are and it will blow your minds!! Get ready! Here goes:

      YESTERDAY: Jerry Nadler, multiple Democratic members of Congress and Democratic Mayors and Governors across the country and media: “They are peaceful protestors exercising their rights and Barr is a liar! They are moms, students and BLM supporters fighting systemic racism. There is no violence that calls for Federal agents or even local police. We support them!! Trump is sending in “stormtroopers” and “kidnapping” innocent, peaceful marchers.”

      TODAY: The people out there are “white supremacists” “white extremists” “right wing racists”.

      Now the proof of ignorance: You believe them NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY!! You are the ones now saying they are “white supremacists” and “right wingers”. If they are, then you and the Mayors and Governors would be screaming and doing everything in your/their power to stop them and would be demanding Trump send troops to stop them since they are the people you hate!! Yet, when Trump sends in people to stop the “white supremacists” “white extremists” YOU are now claiming they are, you and Democrats are absolutely against it and claiming it is illegal for Trump to send in agents!!! And that, folks, is stupidity!! Based on the posts, a lot of people got ‘left behind’ by our educational system.
