    Disbar Barr. It’s his baby when he thinks it makes him look good, it’s someone else’s responsibility when it makes him look bad. This is a corrupt man.

    • Andreja Calibri I think many lawyers who work with tRump will need to be disbarred, that and appeal court judges who are unfit to do the job.

      @DAYBROK3 Yes, if they do not uphold the law and Constitution they should be removed. If they violate law and Constitution, they should face serious penalties including imprisonment.

    • When you’re as DIRTY as your boss, fighting for your own life, and the boss’s life, are the same thing. If Trump falls, so does Barr . . . HARD ✌️👍

    • What a great country we live in to allow this corruption to happen!

  2. Barr is wasting taxpayer time on nonsense its amazing he getting paid this is the department of junk justice

    • When this administration is finally ejected from the WH, the next government should absolutely take Barr to pieces. Tie him up in the courts forever, force him into never ending legal defences, run tax investigations on him and generally make life miserable for this toadie. He’s a disgrace as the AG, as a solicitor, and a human being. He should have been drowned at birth.

      @Brian Allen I agree with everything but drowned at birth. Sometimes these types of people come along to teach us what NOT to do and what TO do in order to right the ship again as well as hopefully prevent such abuses in the future. Glass half full.

    Barr is Trump’s ATTORNEY. He is not the US AG who works for the people.

      @Michael Brown +++ Barr needs to see the Justice department from the other side as in behind barrs, he’s been a crooked republican operative for decades, remember his part in getting pardons for the Iran Contra criminals

    • Barr was brought in to keep Trump above the law; he’s just another Trump yes man.

    • @Jerry Switzer Crooked Barr perjured himself before congress and has proven to be shielding the mob boss for having to answer for his crimes. Crooked Barr was asked to recuse himself from interfering in the investigation in Trump criminal wrongdoings as he tried to extort dirt from the president of Ukraine against his main political opponent. The orange crook referred at Barr involvement in the said crime.

    • @Mdlclass Worker Barr applied for the job by publicly decrying the Mueller investigation as a witch hunt. The mob boss got his Roy Cohn.

    • @Jerry Switzer how is the Borscht In the Kremlin this time of year? Just because you open your mouth and spew garbage doesn’t mean we don’t have eyes and can’t see the open corruption of Donny Soprano and his crime family for ourselves!

    Barr is an Evil Fred Flintstone that should be both dis-Barr’ed and impeached by Congress. He has disgraced the Justice Department and the rule of law.

  5. surely you joke, mein failüre | October 29, 2019 at 10:36 PM | Reply

    Barr should know what’s coming to him. Years after Nixon’s impeachment, his AG John Mitchell (who Nixon had leaned on to help protect his corruption) was found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury and sentenced to prison for his role in the Watergate break-in and cover-up.

    • History will repeat itself in a big way!!!

    • Wouldn’t that be the laugh of all the toddler’s trying to learn alphabet’s 😂😂😂😂

    • @Jane Nonymous not dis time the way things are unfolding, fart Barr won’t escape the wrath of a special prosecutor called Kamala Harris !!!

    • maggie craigie | October 30, 2019 at 6:15 AM | Reply

      Also Barr has something to do with Epstein’s “ suicide”. That needs to be investigated too.

    • @maggie craigie I honestly believe he ordered it and made sure everything fell into place so that it could easily be accomplished. There are way too many impossible coincidences around that so called suicide for it to be anything other than a hit job. Unfortunately we will likely never see any interest in getting to the truth from either side. Our government is so corrupt these days that the best we can do is vote for the lesser evil.

  6. Barr should be de-barred and prosecuted for hiding the results from Mueller’s investigation and acting as a corrupt lawyer for Trump.

    • Issy Bella : This is how it works: “Get your Goons as dirty as you are. Then, fighting for their lives AND yours became the same thing.” Barr is looking at Impeachment, disbarment and removal, AT MINIMUM. And, he KNOWS IT

    • NEAR TERM : Trump will be removed, so we can avoid all of that

    • Does the bits barr dodnt mention come out at the Manafort trail ats y aparently had Muller report was redacted

    • In that case you should be fired and lose your life and personal finances for being propagandized you fool.

  7. Barr has trump’ s hand so far up inside his A$$ that he even talks like his master!! Sickening and disgusted piece of $hit!!.

  8. That disgusting, self loathing and bloated Sack of Sheet is an emBARRisment to our Justice Department

    • This is how it works. “Get your Goons as dirty as you are. Then, fighting for their lives AND yours became the same thing.” Barr is looking at Impeachment, disbarment and removal, AT MINIMUM. And, he KNOWS IT

    • I know! Kamala Harris is an arrogant white-collar-crime Non prosecuting person who was the most crooked lawyer that this video showed—propagandized beyond repair.

    • @Jeremy Watts little racist perhaps? Ill bet you have love for Obama too, huh?

  9. Pelosi should have impeached this consigliere pig 6 months ago

  10. And who is paying for Fred Flintstone to travel the world chasing a REAL witchhunt?

  11. Blink Once on Sunday! | October 29, 2019 at 10:48 PM | Reply

    Barr needs to go to prison too. Investigate the investigators who predicted a dirtbag would abuse his office once he became president. Sounds like a winning strategy.

  12. Mr. Barr may have some repercussions also after all the dust settles post impeachment…

    • Dawn-Marie Langlois | October 30, 2019 at 4:47 AM | Reply

      Where does BARR go post Trump and his SON. I am sure the top headhunters are holding their breath LOL

  13. Only idiots didn’t see this crap coming.
    Same thing goes for Barr’s hand picked lackey Durham.
    Fairness, professionalism etc..
    Kidding, right!?!

    • @MyMoJo Yo Conservative Judges

    • Blaine Potskin | October 30, 2019 at 11:09 AM | Reply

      Where was this news agency on Hillary’s email scandal? You have an FBI director saying the AG said treat this as a matter not an investigation. And then the AG saying the team suggested to me treat it as a matter. They both were under oath. One lied and IG investigation referred comey for charges. Jus say’n

    • @Blaine Potskin And that’s what the Dems want to return to. Lets not forget Jeffery Epstein running around and no-one knew it – or did they?

  14. Why is Trump investigating the Muller probe if Trump believes he was declared innocent unless Trump knows the evidence Muller found is true and incriminating

  15. I would rather see my tax dollars go to feeding the homeless before paying yogi barr to personally represent trump.

  16. This whole set of Government officials need removal from office! Criminals!

    • Vincent Falsitta | October 29, 2019 at 11:47 PM | Reply

      I thought the Republicans like small government. but thay sure know how to use higher or other governments to get dirt on someone who doesn’t agree with them. our constitution is far gone
      to ignore what our FBI or the CIA has on the whole Republican party.

    • NoneOfYour Beeswax | October 30, 2019 at 12:22 PM | Reply

      The best security for all these corrupt Trumpite officials is their sheer number; it would just be impractical to bring them all to justice, unfortunately.

  17. The fact that he went on FOX to say this, speaks volumes.

  18. Barr has no shame he doesn’t even care anymore that people know that’s he’s only there for Trump

  19. Barr has to be careful that he doesn’t end up in jail like Michael Cohen…

    • He can share a cell with Cohen and Rudy. How adorable would that be? 🤗

    • Kathleen Mitchell | October 29, 2019 at 11:56 PM | Reply

      He will. Give it time. These guys will never get away with this stuff and any minute now the Republicans will see that and turn on them. The Republican Senators want to stay right where they are and won’t let the WH drag them under. Watch closely.

    • Hominini Remember Michael Cohen said they better learn from him , because Donald Trump throw is worker under the bus,

    • Hominini oh he will. Watch

  20. Bill Barr is the most corrupt AG in US history
