  1. “I did what I thought was fair and reasonable”

    That’s not how an AG should work, he should stick to established law and order or resign.

    • You’re kidding, right? He’s working for DT specifically and exclusively. Resignation is not on the table when he’s doing his job.

    • @Todd B when rapists get half the prison time than stone, justice is obviously skewed.

    • Michele Mcneill | February 14, 2020 at 7:09 AM | Reply

      Elaniago, you’re right. Otherwise, any AG can overturn laws and precedents because of his own decision on what he thinks is fair and reasonable. The prosecutors were doing their job, why did Barr need to intervene? Does he oversee ALL sentencing recommendations?

    • Cordell Senior
      Point is that is not his job, duh.

  2. Why would Barr get involved in the stone case at all?!?

    • Why would he? Why would he tell us a president can’t be indicted? Why would he do a press conference and say the Mueller report exonerated the Trump? Why would he say Trump’s campaign was spied on? Why would he be investigating the investigators? Because his master told him to. Barr and Trump communicate via Twitter. Trump rant tweets and then Barr goes to work. They’re both going to jail

    • @Clinton Pachingel that’s dumb

    • @Clinton Pachingel no that’s numb and dumb!

    • @Dawn Markey if you believe that, you’re dumb too.. LMAO

    • @Dawn Markey it is NOT his job to give criminals a lesser amount of jail time because they’re friends with the president.. duh

  3. Now your Gen Kelly wants to be honourable… funny not so when kids were dying 🤔

    • Mdlclass Worker | February 14, 2020 at 7:23 AM | Reply

      Kelly is a racist and a masagynist, but he does value the Constitution and the military

    • Mdlclass Worker
      I hope the US gets better.., the American people as we all do deserve to have a great community, universal health care & government n laws esp employment laws that balance things n empower the blue collar..

    • Kevin Mack
      I did know that, I just saw his attitude n answering to your Sen Harris… re those children’s issues .., he wasn’t going to be questioned…!
      I don’t know him except he’s a Marine Gen.. yet watched his behaviour..🤔 that training & that attitude together can easily lead to a bully

  4. Surely Trump cant change it so he has no body listening in on his foreign calls.. THIS IS MADNESS !

      The “News” can’t come right out and say it but it is over. we are now under a Dictatorship. Trump’s only problem is finding people that will carry out his wishes. When people resign or quit their jobs they are doing Trump a favor. People that work for Trump just need to ignore him. Trump say’s to reduce a sentence for a crime then double it. Trump tweets to fire a judge or a secretary hire two. Or just say I thought Trump was Joking.

    • @Don Emigholz Jr.

      Trump is mentally

    • Don Emigholz Jr. | February 14, 2020 at 4:10 PM | Reply

      @MAGGIE LEONARD Remember That Trump is in office because of Oil Conglomerates support .. well and Citigroup’s support.

  5. With this rate America will surpass China at dictatorship before Christmas 🙄

      Lol, far from it. If you were in China, you’ll be in prison right now for attacking the President. You have the freedom of speech to speak whatever you may about the president in this country, so Trump also has the same freedom of speech regarding how he thinks or feel about a policy or view.

    • Jeremiah Bachmann | February 14, 2020 at 9:13 AM | Reply

      Not by Christmas…maybe a few more Christmases.

    • Certainly Trump, like every citizen, has that right. He does NOT have the right, however, to use the power of his office to INFLUENCE the judicial branch OR the legislative branch. That’s the point of having them be separate but equal divisions of our governmental system. He can put his opinions out there all he wants, and I’ll defend that right. That’s not all he’s doing, and all the evidence shows it.

  6. Barr is corrupt, but also a coward. The public outrage gave him pause. He wonders about how history will judge him. He will be judged harshly.

    • I highly doubt it. He said in a past interview that he doesn’t care about his legacy. “everyone dies” or something like that

    • Wanna know who Barr really is? Google “The Mule” by Chip Tatum.

    • Mdlclass Worker | February 14, 2020 at 7:28 AM | Reply

      @Clinton Pachingel — no hes not they gave him the benefit of a doubt to begin with but that went away with his lying about the Mueller report findings

  7. Nothing Barr says should be believed. Just like his client.

  8. Isn’t it ironic that America now has a president that stands against everything America stands for?

  9. What he fails to mention is why did he get personally involved in the first place. Why shouldn’t Roger Stone get the same sentencing guidelines as everyone else?

    • @David Primeau
      Btw it was up to Stones attorneys to object to biased Jurors during jury selection. Maybe his own lawyers set him up for conviction. What a hoot.

    • @David Primeau Stone played with the wrong judge when he posted the crosshair pic. You can’t threaten a Federal Judge with words or deeds ..Any half assed mobster can tell you that . He got slapped with the gag order & deserved it.

    • @David Primeau
      BTW. Kathy Griffin wasn’t on trial at the
      time she criticized Trump… That’s called the right to free speech, exactly what Trump is trying to stop. (Along with all your others rights.)

    • @Vote him Out This is exciting, I never thought I’d ever get to experience real time election interference personally, my dude

  10. This is just Atgolf Twitler and his enablers 2020 whatabout Hillary emails smear. All roads lead to Russia with Trump. Impeachment and phoney investigations are an extension of Russia’s sweeping and systematic interference in our election and Trumps continued efforts to side with Putin and Russia against America.

  11. Blah blah he’s still covering for the tyrant.

  12. The white house is now officially a brothel.


  14. No longer wants National Security listening on his phone calls. When he calls the leaders from foreign Nations? Absolute power corrupting. Absolutely.!!!

    • Honest Business | February 14, 2020 at 8:00 AM | Reply

      Could the corruption be more blatant.

    • He also wants to legalize American businesses the right to bribe foreign Govts so they can do business. His rationale is that , that’s how it’s done all around the world and the US is missing out on good deals because they are not allowed to bribe and influence corrupt officials. He’s flown blown corrupt!!!

    • casadekarlito Bribes is how it is done in russia, China, Indonesia. I guess that is who he wants the United States to look like. Rump has been a corrupt perverted thug most of his life.

    • Lawrence Parker | February 14, 2020 at 7:39 PM | Reply

      @Honest Business that’s the trick don’t hide it do it right in the open.

  15. [1:43] “Never.” I think it’s interesting that he completely looked down and away as he gave this answer. Some people might call this a tell.

  16. In the name of justice, Barr must resign immediately.

  17. Translation:
    “Of course I intervened on Trumps behalf, but Trump shouldn’t have exposed our conspiracy openly.”

  18. darlings.. he’s “LYING”..

  19. Barr says doesn’t like the public statements and tweets, but he doesn’t mind the behind door directions from Trump…..

    • Beverly Dwyer AG Barr is his own man. Didn’t you listen to what he said? Do no take t what the talking head “journalist” as the truth. Think for yourself. #KAG2020 #WalkAway

    • @cattycorner barr is his own man? Contra anyone? epstein suicide anyone? tweetgate anyone? barr not his own man, he follows and wants it.he is not stupid,but an hypocrite traitor.. He even said it..” when i die non of this over done will matter” he don’t care about his legacy. He is a crook.

    • Right
