Bill Barr 'Lied To Us Over And Over Again,' Says Legal Analyst

96 comments

  1. Never trusted Barr from the minute he begged to Trump for the position which he disgraced.

    1. @Andrew Mitchell there is a first for everything, Who writes Grovel letters out there that gets the job? These GOP live in some fantasy world like the Stepford Wives…

    2. Barr:
      In the 90’s whilst in previous Republican administrations provided justification for “rendition”;
      hampered the BCCI investigation;
      hampered the “Iraqgate” investigation;
      hampered the “Irangate” investigation then advised GB to pardon 6 of the key players in lrangate so GB could avoid being called to testify (as a result of all his participation in coverups he was given the nickname “Cover-up General Barr);
      started a program that did surveillance on foreign calls made by US citizens; advocated for maintaining mandatory sentencing and advocated against parole and said that crime was caused solely by immorality and not the byproduct of material factors;
      wrote a report entitled “The Case For More Incarceration” that resulted in increase in private prisons and harsher sentencing and laws and thus increased imprisonments.
      Whilst under Trvmp:
      ordered the cancellation of the prosecution of the officer that killed Eric Garner;
      fired SDNY Attorney Berman who was investigating Giuliani and the Trvmp lnaugaration Committee;
      falsely claimed that his DOJ had indicted a Texas man for requesting and submitting 1,700 mail-in ballots;
      falsely claimed that DOJ was following thousands of BLM and Antifa operatives who were flying on planes to various protest sites;
      tried to get federal prosecutors to charge BLM and Antifa protesters for plotting to overthrow the government;
      had to recuse himself in 2019 from the Jeffrey Epstn case due to conflict since he had worked for the law firm that represented Epstn (other Trvmp appointees Acosta, Dersh0witz, J. Bolton, J. Wall, P. Cipollona, A. Azar, J. Rosen, N. Sales, J. Eastman, J. Clark, B. Kavanavgh had also worked for the same law firm – K&E)
      (also, Barr’s father Donald had, whilst principal of elite Dalton School, had hired college dropout Epstn to teach calculus and physics to kids).
      So Barr is just a great guy

    1. Anyone is better than Trump America is ruined because of him, unless they do the right thing and lock trump and family up nothing is going to change very sad

    2. @Zero You You were told they hate. Thats why I think this is a cult and a projection. If you can send me a video of one time anyone saying they hate hispanics I’d love to see it. Other then that, its exactly the issue, you can’t even think straight. Its just ‘repubs are white nationalists who hate everyone else’ soo dangerous you’re even falling into this trap and laughing aboutnit like you’re the good guy. CULT

    1. @noah juan juneau Senate confirmation hearing, he lied to then Senator Harris, I was chuckling along with Corey Booker Corey Booker stated she likes the long game

  2. If people don’t think that there was election fraud, think again Trump was trying to get his base to vote twice and the inserection he planned for Jan 6th

    1. Someone within trumps world knew what they were looking for, yes men and liars..mind blowing.

    2. Trump admitted in court to scamming people with Trump university and he had to pay out 25 million dollars. His supporters knew this. They don’t care. They love hate.

    1. @Smashin Scott No I’m not, Im 54 and compared to Trump or Barr I am totally skinny.
      You, on the other hand are trolling for Bill Barr and Trump, the biggest loser in US history and that is what you do…. It’s your job…..
      It is difficult to imagine a more pathetic loser-job than that don’t you think? You opened a fake account yesterday under a fake name and here you are making a fool of yourself. And your highlight of the day is trying to trigger me by calling me obese?!! Tell me if I am wrong here.

    2. @Wohooo wow..a 54yo that thumbs themself up..even worse..take a last sip of your mountain dew and go get some sun

    3. @Smashin Scott I get plenty of sun and I’ll have a cup of tea instead ty. I suspect you are the one drinking mountain dew though. So how old are you then? And what do they pay you for trolling?

    4. WWOOOOWW!!!! Denise hummmm Do you know that for sure ? hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehaHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAHHHHLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!

    1. @William Crowley I will ask one question. What is tRumps religious ideology? He denounced Christ and serve Satan for his own power. Please explain.

    2. @William Crowley thier religious extremism is important to them, but they have thier other vices as well

    3. @Belly Dancer Em ok. Cite a source for a vice that is more important to them then their service to their version of the invisible sky daddy.

    4. @Belly Dancer Em

      “In 2006, Barrett told graduates of the Notre Dame Law School, which she had attended and where she was teaching, that they should see their upcoming legal careers “as but a means to an end … and that end is building the Kingdom of God”

    1. oooooooooooohehehehehehehehehehehehehehehAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAWWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…….ROTF LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!

    2. @JUST ME
      Losers always have to revert to the past cause thier present was and is so rotten…

    3. @Dan Archer Love the truth you speak . The idiot’s that watch this bs are hopeless at this point , it’s like speaking to your WALL !

  3. The American Bar Association need to deal with Bill Barr.
    Bill Barr vs truth=none
    Bill Barr vs credibility=none
    Bill Barr vs principles=none
    Bill Barr vs American people= Traitor.
    Bill Barr vs DOJ office= corrupted office.

    1. Barr:
      In the 90’s whilst in previous Republican administrations provided justification for “rendition”;
      hampered the BCCI investigation;
      hampered the “Iraqgate” investigation;
      hampered the “Irangate” investigation then advised GB to pardon 6 of the key players in lrangate so GB could avoid being called to testify (as a result of all his participation in coverups he was given the nickname “Cover-up General Barr);
      started a program that did surveillance on foreign calls made by US citizens; advocated for maintaining mandatory sentencing and advocated against parole and said that crime was caused solely by immorality and not the byproduct of material factors;
      wrote a report entitled “The Case For More Incarceration” that resulted in increase in private prisons and harsher sentencing and laws and thus increased imprisonments.
      Whilst under Trvmp:
      ordered the cancellation of the prosecution of the officer that killed Eric Garner;
      fired SDNY Attorney Berman who was investigating Giuliani and the Trvmp lnaugaration Committee;
      falsely claimed that his DOJ had indicted a Texas man for requesting and submitting 1,700 mail-in ballots;
      falsely claimed that DOJ was following thousands of BLM and Antifa operatives who were flying on planes to various protest sites;
      tried to get federal prosecutors to charge BLM and Antifa protesters for plotting to overthrow the government;
      had to recuse himself in 2019 from the Jeffrey Epstn case due to conflict since he had worked for the law firm that represented Epstn (other Trvmp appointees Acosta, Dersh0witz, J. Bolton, J. Wall, P. Cipollona, A. Azar, J. Rosen, N. Sales, J. Eastman, J. Clark, B. Kavanavgh had also worked for the same law firm – K&E)
      (also, Barr’s father Donald had, whilst principal of elite Dalton School, had hired college dropout Epstn to teach calculus and physics to kids).
      So Barr is just a great guy

    2. @Willy Bones People who do grievous things should be barred from making any money from books about their lives or what they did. This should also include movies, anyone else writing or publishing or producing any of them. They should not be allowed to be paid for speaking engagements either.

    3. @Curtis Thomas on the GLENN KIRCHNER channel, Glenn has said a lot about Barr. He has a Playlist on the Epstein case. In one of those vids, Glenn begs the question, “Why did Barr rush to the nearest microphone to announce that Epstein had committed suicide, and that he made this announcement BEFORE AUTOPSY?”  

      Glenn is a former Federal Prosecutor, now a Law Professor at Geo. Washington Univ. in D.C. To “beg the question” means that the answer is implied in the question. So, as Trump’s personal attorney, who was Barr protecting? Certainly not Bill Clinton.

      According to a later source I found, the autopsy results revealed Epstein died by a strangulation, not a hanging, The proof was that in a hanging, the thyroid bone could not be broken. That would take more force, as found in a strangulation.

      Trump once asked if Maxwell would talk about him, and “would she roll on anyone?” (Hmm. Was he begging the question?)  

      Fox News had to apologize to CNN for “mistakenly” cropping Trump out of that now-famous photo of him with Melania, Epstein and Maxwell. Fox is Trump’s propaganda machine.

      I heard last year that Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial was set for July 21, 2021. That’s less than 2 weeks from now. The FBI confiscated numerous boxes from his NY residence. They likely contain the video tapes he made, to use to blackmail all the men doing their dirty deeds to these under-aged girls. Now, according to your input, I’m wondering if not just Trump, but Barr himself was one of the predators, too. Or both of them.

      I hope they don’t postpone the trial. I expect it to be series of repeated bombshells exploding if those tapes are used as evidence. Yikes.

      Thanks for pointing out Barr’s evil doings running counter to his self-professing Christian beliefs. He’s no more a Christian than Trump.

    1. Seeing his facial expression He’s a friend of Trump Bill bar is a coward He was lying and he was lying into scared lion He couldn’t hardly look at nobody in the eyes He’s shameful He don’t need license He’s corrupt scary and being a general supposed to be courageous He wasn’t courageous so he lost his merit’s behind Trump .

    2. @Belly Dancer Em I agree
      Either you against it or you’re a part of it and so he’s a part of it

    3. Billboard should have stepped down and saved his reputation like others did or is step forward and tell the truth is just like he did at the end

  4. Bill Barr has demostrated his hatred for democracy, morality, and the American people time and again. If we had a president that cared for justice, the DOJ would have Barr in cuffs.

    1. I have a dislike for democracy also. We have a system already and it is a Republic.
      We don’t want more government control.

    2. @Darren Engels not me you, we do have certain aspects of democracy in our republic, but not when it come to a [presidential election. To the republic for which it stands, got that

    3. @omik redarhcs uses a Q computer , a SQUAK computer that only Q use. He is an internal threat.

  5. I watched Barr’s false indignation, leading to almost yelling, during an in-studio interview with Blitzer on CNN. Now he’s re-writing history in an attempt to negate his culpability and his lies. William Barr is a pathetic excuse of a man.

    1. Barr:
      In the 90’s whilst in previous Republican administrations provided justification for “rendition”;
      hampered the BCCI investigation;
      hampered the “Iraqgate” investigation;
      hampered the “Irangate” investigation then advised GB to pardon 6 of the key players in lrangate so GB could avoid being called to testify (as a result of all his participation in coverups he was given the nickname “Cover-up General Barr);
      started a program that did surveillance on foreign calls made by US citizens; advocated for maintaining mandatory sentencing and advocated against parole and said that crime was caused solely by immorality and not the byproduct of material factors;
      wrote a report entitled “The Case For More Incarceration” that resulted in increase in private prisons and harsher sentencing and laws and thus increased imprisonments.
      Whilst under Trvmp:
      ordered the cancellation of the prosecution of the officer that killed Eric Garner;
      fired SDNY Attorney Berman who was investigating Giuliani and the Trvmp lnaugaration Committee;
      falsely claimed that his DOJ had indicted a Texas man for requesting and submitting 1,700 mail-in ballots;
      falsely claimed that DOJ was following thousands of BLM and Antifa operatives who were flying on planes to various protest sites;
      tried to get federal prosecutors to charge BLM and Antifa protesters for plotting to overthrow the government;
      had to recuse himself in 2019 from the Jeffrey Epstn case due to conflict since he had worked for the law firm that represented Epstn (other Trvmp appointees Acosta, Dersh0witz, J. Bolton, J. Wall, P. Cipollona, A. Azar, J. Rosen, N. Sales, J. Eastman, J. Clark, B. Kavanavgh had also worked for the same law firm – K&E)
      (also, Barr’s father Donald had, whilst principal of elite Dalton School, had hired college dropout Epstn to teach calculus and physics to kids).
      So Barr is just a great guy

    2. I know. Barr looked like he was going to lose it.
      That part where Barr was talking about the possibility of fraudulent ballots coming in from other countries made my skin crawl. Wolf asked Barr what was he basing that assertion on. Barr replied, logic. I don’t know why but that answer totally freaked me out.

    3. Bill Barr exhibited arrogance and contempt–contempt for what he obviously regarded as highly presumptuous, indeed, stupid questions–toward Wolf Blitzer during an in person interview several months before the election. Barr had agreed to appear so that he could promote the Trumpian theory that the greatly increased use of mail-in ballots would promote fraud.

      In response to this assertion by Barr, Wolf Blitzer asked why AG Barr thought that increased voting by mail–necessitated by the pandemic–would lead to a rise in voter fraud given that several American states had successfully used mail-in ballots for years without any real problems. For his part, Barr could barely maintain the illusion of civility necessary to reply to such a feebleminded question. But reply he did: He haughtily answered, “Logic.”

      Yes, logic had led Bill Barr–a towering intellect amongst intellectual pygmies–to conclude that more voting by mail necessarily equaled more fraud. And he had arrived at that conclusion not by wading through statistics, scholarly studies, or trifling facts, but by employing logic. The Attorney General of the United States said, in essence, that his gut told him that trouble lay ahead should large numbers of Americans choose to vote by mail. Such a far less than rigorous decisionmaking process might be fine for some novice, simple country lawyer–but not for America’s “top cop.”

    4. I’m absolutely sure I watched then senator Harris now vice president ask barr under oath if trump or anyone in his administration had ever suggested that he open an investigation into anyone and barr stammered around the question and stated that he was struggling with the word ( suggest) so she gave him other wordings inferred , hinted he was obviously lying back then…..under oath.

  6. Barr almost singlehandedly destroyed the DOJ.
    Remember, he said history is written by the winners. Let him go down in American history for the loser he was/is.

    1. @Raptango_NA Obviously you think he’s a stand up guy. What do you know about him being a stand up guy? How do you know that he’s a stand up guy? Here’s what I know…You definently got skipped over in the brains department.

    2. @Raptango_NA We are all born ignorant. But one must work very hard to remain stupid.
      Benjamin Franklin

      Apparently you’ve been working overtime.

    3. @Carrie Murphy Another angry person who believes exactly what she’s been told to believe. But you’re not angry at me…its a defense mechanism to not have to face the fact that everything you think didnt come from you…it came from some cable news opinion show. Lol. Why dont you like Bill Barr? Because you’ve been told not to like him. And if someone listens to a few of his speeches and watches him testify before Congress…if that person forms an opinion that Bill Barr is reasonable, knowledgable and measured…while the clowns in congress make absolute fools of themselves…then that’s what I saw.
      You might want to get a hobby of thinking for yourself instead of filling YOUR head with the opinions of OTHER PEOPLE who are simply trying to manipulate you for political purposes. Whats funny is you wouldn’t even remember the name Bill Barr had not some Democrat on TV told you to hate him. Lol. I’d be angry too if I were you.

    4. @Raptango_NA He…Was…Lying…To…Get…Democrats…To…Confirm…Him…Also. Everything he said at his confirmation, he did the opposite. I call that lying, maybe you think its fibbing?

    5. Only ONE thing Barr said is true…. “History” IS written by the winners…. They ALWAYS have…. It’s not always true but it’s still written…

  7. All of the charlatan lawyer’s responsible for promoting the “big lie” especially the rethug state AG’s who signed that ridiculous letter
    Should be brought before their state licensing board.

  8. Everyone attached to Trump lies. They have to in order to back his statements. Only thing to cover a lie is another lie.

    1. @Leonie Romanes Journalists were caught lying 30000 times also. Ever look into literally anything you’re fed? . This is bonkers, I’m not even a trump fan hes soft but you guys are beyond moronic its unbelievable you even have conviction in what you say. God help us all

    2. @Leonie Romanes Exactly, I’m the enemy, you cannot be wrong trump is literally evil blah blah. Straight up cult. I’m canadian never donated to him once. You are so dumb its hirts my brain .

    3. @Leonie Romanes I see your comments . GQP, you are turning into the cult you hate. Over your head though

    1. Nixon is doing somersaults in his coffin. He makes Nixon look like a normal man.
      Trump: Hey Nixon, hold my beer!

    2. Tds is and will be you’r down fall . Hope you grow up and see how stupid your thought process was .

  9. It is not difficult to understand why his daughter, Mary, and his son-in-law, Tyler, left their Washington post at the DOJ; they would have been tossed out on their ears in shame. Barr has left quite a legacy for his brats and grandbrats to admire when they read about how he buttered both sides of the toast.

  10. Here is the irony: He put his whole legacy into violating his oath by dedicating himself to being the president’s personal lawyer, which is against the Constitution. But now Trump has rejected Barr for daring to say the the 2020 election was not stolen. This is called “karma.”
