  1. Just a bit late. Not the right guy to say. Probably wrong. Why is this happening today?

    • They need to scrape up some old garbage off of the road to present as a parting gift to the sycophants.

    • David – December 21, 1988; I was at a friend’s house and got the news. Someone I knew – well – was on that plane. THAT is why he made the announcement today. That is why he asked Trump to be able to stay on, to the 23rd. So he could make this announcement, TODAY, on the anniversary. He has been working this case – well (maybe his ONE positive legacy he has left) since his time as A.G. under G.H.W. Bush. I believe that he and Mueller (how’s that for little known irony) have been working this, together, and meeting with the families, on the anniversary, for many years.

    • So he could say no special counsels are needed cause they’ve already buried all the criminal BIG stuff of the last 8 years.

    • @howard damico It still makes little sense for him to bring it out himself at the present time. The Administration has little direct credibility and Barr has less than that considering how he is now no longer Trumps man. He might be trying to do the one good act of his late career, but (aside from you and me) few people know about Lockerby and fewer still care about it.

      There may be incontrovertible evidence against the man. He might have done all that is said he did. But it remains that this comes in the waning days of an administration which had ample time to bring this forward and which did not. Those who think Barr a corrupt A.G. now have one more thing to talk about.

      Mine was a question. Why today? I am inclined to believe this is yet another diversion, another change of the subject, another Trumpist tactic in a world where his playbook is well understood. Trump would gladly throw himself under the bus if he thinks the outcome is slightly better than the day before.

    • @David Smith  Yes, we agree on William Barr, and his legacy.     We just disagree on the glasses we use to view today’s announcement.    You are viewing the announcement through the prism of today’s politics.   I am viewing it through my memory of December 21, 1988; what I knew before, and what came after.

    Trying to go out with a bang, I guess? Uhh… whatever. As long as he leaves!

    • what does the left lean to the left of? What does the right lean to the right of? What do centrists balance between? Do you know what these terms mean or are you just another brain dead propaganda eating moron desperate to remove inalienable rights?

  3. Didn’t he quit?

  4. This guy is a clown I don’t believe him anything anymore, he did a good job destroying his reputation

  5. Jesus Christ he is going to verify the Moon Landing really happened next I guess.

      nope. They had a Genesis Radio show for a reason during the so called first visit.
      He will say the North Star is my star. And after Van Allen you got the same as Valhalla. We will not go further as the halls of God. Just like star holy king and land the same set up is as Atlantis.

    • @Jason Lloyd shut up

    • It did happen

    • Jesus Christ is REAL but the majority of what AG Barr utters is not real!

    • Jason Lloyd The u.s. has a system of justice that requires proof. Bill Barr did look at the claims of election fraud but, just like the judges, he came to the conclusion that these claims are baseless. Just by repeating over and over that there is fraud doesn’t make it so. There has to be evidence and you will have convince the judges of it in court.

  6. While Stationed in Germany with the USAF one of our friends and fellow EC-130H Crew Chief’s Dedra “Dee” Woods was going home for Christmas with her family Joe, Joe Jr. and Chelsea aboard Pan Am Flight 103. RIP Dee and family. You are missed…

      @Socorro Sandoval Ordonez
      Read the title and description box. Then reread the OP. It was (for) Christmas in 1988. As a GenXer in my 40s, all I can say is: Your comment is extremely insensitive, and one day, You TOO, will be 20, then 30, then 40.

    • @Socorro Sandoval Ordonez 1988 as it says in the heading..

    • @Socorro Sandoval Ordonez is an anti vaxxer. IMHO

    • Deborah Freedman | December 21, 2020 at 3:03 PM | Reply

      @Socorro Sandoval Ordonez So, if it happened before *you* were born, it wasn’t important? How self centered and ignorant can a person be?

    • By-tor – I attended a funeral. About a month later. When they could finally have one . . . I remember where I sat. I still remember, the priest, in front of a packed congregation: ‘There are those who will say there are no angels, we can claim to have known of one’.

  7. Yes, get justice for what happened before but make sure you handle Russia and their bullsh*t too

  8. Talk about a transparent distraction

    Meanwhile epstein was killed in your custody in 2019

    • @Chris spoken like a true sheep. But yet Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew are both Democrats.

    • @Balzac Gemini Sheep? Go bark up another tree fuckboy. Im not the one

    • @M J shut up moron. People care

    • @Chris the fact that you call someone a fuckboy means you cant be taken serious. You are definately a Biden puppet.

    • @Balzac GeminiYeah, I am the one coming off like a ditz. I am guessing you haven’t a clue about Iran Contra nor have you read every deposition or publicly available witness statement, and police report from the epstein cases? I have, and I don’t think you really understand much about U. S. Or World Politics if you sincerely think Bill Clinton, or Prince Andrew are the most powerful or nefarious people who would benefit from Epstein’s death. He was an asset. He ran a blackmail honeypot for a variety of intelligence agencies and likely the mafia, if one considers Les Wexler’s involvement. David Koch was in his black book. Frankly, I consider spies, mercenaries, and billionaires who are the arbiters of the policies the politicians they fund to be a lot more likely to be able to already have the resources to get to Epstein than an expresident, or a spare heir.

  10. This is awful, but I can’t trust anything this man says. And I live abroad- it could have been me.

  11. he’s trying to repair his ” Legacy” LOL LMFAOROTF
    hahahahahahaaaaaaaaa i swear to god i tried watching this but just burst out laughing every 15 seconds….

    New Prosecution Department named:
    GHOSTBUSTER FORCE

    WE ARE COMING AFTER YOU NEXT, DR. MUDD!

  14. Aimed at America – BUT affected greatly the tiny town in Scotland, Lockerbie.

    • Joseph Jr McNamara | December 21, 2020 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      That wee town is about 20 miles from my house i can remember as a child hearing the massive bang it gives me the chills

    • chuck carberry | December 21, 2020 at 5:19 PM | Reply

      I’m from Scotland and we have left this behind. It was American, Middle East, interference, like what is still happening. We just payed the price for it. It was nothing to do with Scotland. We don’t need this BS.

  15. Perhaps Barr’s next trick is revealing aliens do exist. Now that would make him a celebrity!

  16. Bill”CARTMAN” Barr.
    #TRE45ON

  17. This guy will be on next season’s Dancing With the Stars.

  18. Digging investigation more than 30 years old may be a scheme to distract the waves of “STOP THE STEAL”

  19. Bet he’s gonna tell us where Jimmy Hoffa is buried now. 🙄🙄

  20. Glad he found something to do with his time before he hands in his resignation so he can go home for Christmas.
