  1. Barr is your attorney general, America? Lord you’re in trouble.

  2. This is the second time AG Barr is undermining an investigative report. How will he be held accountable for behaving like Trump’s criminal defense attorney rather than an AG?

    • We will have to vote Trump out.

    • James Holbrook | December 10, 2019 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      It’s actually the third time that he has covered up crimes by the Republicans. The first time was when he covered up the crimes of the Iran – Contra affair.

    • Denise Hall If we cant Get Mitch to pass that bill to stop Russian interference in our elections I don’t see it happening. If Trump wins again we lose our democracy. However we can’t give up. We must vote like our lives depend on it. Because it does.

    • The IG should investigate Barr after knowing this. Barr is clearly showing his corruption in plain sight.

    • Hang him, traitor, slobe.

  3. Stop calling barr the AG, he’s nothing more than criminal trumps attorney at this point.

    A political PARTISAN AG like Barr shows himself, a Trump boy, shouldn’t be taken seriously.

    • @mark prater On June 28, 2012, Holder became the first U.S. Attorney General in history to be held in both criminal and civil contempt. He was held, by a bipartisan vote, in contempt by the House of Representatives in a 255–67 vote, with 17 Democrats voting for the measure, 2 Republicans voting against the measure.

      Trust me, every Democrat in politics should be in jail. Starting with Obama and Hillary. But as I told you, they get a pass because they have their own investigate them 

      I do blame the Republicans for allowing the DIMS to get that kind of power and control. Had they just stopped them before it got this bad. 

      You’ll wake up one day. Hopefully before its too late

    • @@Kay Miller: As you have shown, the reason that Democrats are the party of Moral Leadership is because we will not hesitate to hold OUR PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE when it is warranted.
      Holder screwed up. We admitted it, HE admitted it, accepted the stain on his name, and can STILL hold his head high.
      When will Republicans show ANY compunction to hold THIS Attorney General accountable for HIS malfeasance?

  5. I like William Barr after he has been disbarred.

    • ….and behind bars.

    • Why aren’t you hypocrites ever outraged by your own corrupt party????!!!  

      Everything Trump and his people are accused of by the lying liberals, are the very things the liberals are doing.

    • @Kay Miller I am sorry for your malignant condition. Perhaps you can be made comfortable while a cure is being sought. Fear not, Schiff and Pelosi are not hiding under your bed with pointy teeth and claws. Your babushka will be here soon with a big steaming cup of orange Kool-aid. Try to sleep counting the red-hat sheep jumping over the cliff to justice. Nighty night.

    • @jones You are a sad person. You are the ones being duped and lied to. You must be so proud to be so stupid to believe all the lies you are fed daily and actually repeat them.

    • is a bogus site!@Kay Miller

  6. Barr is a Liar and a Traitor and Criminal just like Trump….He is TRUMPS Bag man covering up all his Crimes.

    • @Ainge The Mechanic
      The economy is just a result of the recovery of the economy that was started by Obama.
      The reason Americans have a president called Trump is the sole fault of THE AMERICAN POPULATION. The American population is the group of people who are stupid. It’s pathetic to blame it on the democrats. Don’t you Americans have a mind of your own??
      Yes, people thought Hilary would be bad but the result now is that USA is being controlled by Russia. Putin has his hand so far up the rear of Donald Trump that Putin is simply the puppeteer and Trump is the puppet.

    • @Ainge The Mechanic Trump is a world class Buffoon! That is not the Democrats fault.

    • And bush also

    I guess it depends on your viewpoint: if you are on Russia’s side, the FBI is the enemy.

  8. Barr is a professional liar. Even worse than Giuliani, who is just an amateur.

  9. Barr, Trump’s “Ace Groweler”, is disqualified for his seat of office and should be removed at once due to posing as a giant threat towards the credibility of America and the DOJ.

    Traitor to the Flag all the way throught…

  10. So-called AG Barr is doing what he does best, covering up for a crooked official.

  11. Carl Klopfenstine | December 10, 2019 at 11:18 AM | Reply

    Sounds like the GOP are not happy, tough shyt.

    • United We Stand | December 10, 2019 at 4:42 PM | Reply

      Carl Klopfenstine read the IG report. It’s very damming on its own. It doesn’t exonerate anyone. This is not real news. The IG report alone is BAD. Furthermore, what fakeNews doesn’t tell you is that Barr and Durham have a much broader scope in this investigation.. they know more than the IG, as they travelled out of the Country and investigated/interviewed informants. They also have prosecutorial power, and the IG doesn’t. The GOP is not happy about the abuse of power at the highest levels of the FBI and CIA, but unlike Joe, they realize the IG’s job was to give a thorough report and that’s what he did. His opinion is of no consequence to what Barr and Durham are investigating. Btw, you have to have a pretty low IQ after reading the text at the FBI, Comey and Brennan’s tweets to believe their was no political bias. Why would you even believe these people. They’re so-called journalist. You don’t have to be genius to become a journalist, and they’re not very good at their job. They spread propaganda. Just go back to Russian collusion, and ask yourself why you’re continuing to listen to lies? If that’s what you want, I’ll make up positive news for you.

    • @United We Stand Okay, cult member. No one wants to hear your alternative view.

    • Lost Birds Production | December 10, 2019 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      This dumb F didn’t do anything with the 2016 election and now he talks about this one? F U.

  12. Barr: “I, Uh do think there was spying.”
    IG Report: “That’s a hard no.”
    Barr: “Yabba Dabba darn it!”

    • @Lorgar Nice try. The IG summarized the report. It is not necessary for us to read the report.
      The IG did his job on behalf of the people of this country that pay his salary, unlike Barr and Durham who violate their mandate and rob the taxpayers while supporting a traitor to this country.
      Try again. Isn’t this where you show your true colors?

    • @Lorgar I don’t have to. I read the Mueller report and saw what Barf did with that. Whatever Barf says is a lie, like his boss.I

    • @Mainely 😂😂😂😂😂
      It is the demonrats who have been the champion of the Trump Russia conspiracy theory for the last 4 years. Mule-r couldn’t deliver, so now it is Ukraine. You prople are idiots!

    • @Boudica you may be able to read, but that’s about it!
      To comprehend what you have read? I doubt that, it is vlear from your reply!

  13. Why? you ask… a big Russian payoff in an offshore account.

    • Hmmm…. Obama came into office with #1.2 million. 3 years after he’s out of office he buys a $22 million dollar waterfront mansion in Martha’s Vineyard for $11 million dollars. 1. Never saw that kind of negotiating when he was president. He gave other countries everything they wanted and never got anything back in return; including kidnapped Americans.

      Guess he’s not too worried about climate change and the country being destroyed in 12 years, uh? 

      2 .Where did he get that kind of money? “Russia payoff in an offshore account”? 

      Or maybe the 1.8 billion dollars that went missing under his presidency.

      Or how about Hillary and Bill Clinton’s peddling influence with their pay-for-play sham foundation on behalf of our government.

      Or how about Democrat Rep Maxine Waters paying her daughter $750,000 for stuffing envelopes for her campaign with campaign money. And exhorting banks and giving her husband lucrative government contract becoming a multi-millionaire while in office.

      Or Democrat VP Joe Biden getting lucrative jobs for his son Hunter Biden and then deny it. Hunter Biden got a billion dollars from China and was paid $83,000 a month for being on a board of a corrupt gas energy company in UKRAINE without any experience. What did these countries get back in return on behalf of our government under Obama? Hmmm….. Can you say quid pro quo?

      How did Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein becomes a billionaire while in office? Oh yeah, with all those lucrative government contracts she gave her husband.

      I can go on and on with the Democrats abuse of power.

      I’ve never heard about anyone bribing a billionaire. Only Democrats from the looks of their net worth. Because they were not rich coming into office. And it’s interesting how every Democrat in Congress is lock- step on everthing. Yet Republicans are not. So who is getting blackmailed, bribed or exhorted? DEMS!!!

  14. Disbar Barr…he is the biggest MAGAT.

  15. They get everything they ask for but they don’t like the anwsers.

  16. At some point he should be indicted for obstructing congress and removed!

  17. Barr is corrupt to the core. He is nothing but one of Trump’s lap dogs.

      Kay Miller —
      Goodness gracious, Kay, you can’t be that dense! Do you even have any idea what the US Attorney General is supposed to do? For one thing, he/she doesn’t work as the personal defense lawyer of the US president. Presidents have slews of the best private attorneys in the country at their disposal; the Attorney General works for the American people. In fact, when a president is under investigation, the Attorney General has to step away from that president until the investigation is concluded and the results have been made known to the people. As the head of the Justice Dept, the AG is directly involved in the process of investigating a president. Even when familial ties exist between the US president and the AG (president JFK and his brother Robert are perfect examples), there can be no special favors from the Dept. of Justice if the president happens to be the person under investigation. By the same token, the head of the Executive branch cannot instruct that Department not to investigate the Attorney General. Abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and something called conflict of interest are certainly not the types of Constitutional offenses that a president or an attorney general should be associated with. However, corruption at the top has a way of running downhill and drenching whoever stands below the summit.

      Barr came out of retirement to take the job. How can he be corrupt?

    • @CaliforniaCheez Read up on Iran-Contra!

  18. A group of psychiatrists wrote about “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump”

  19. patricia lafountain | December 10, 2019 at 3:40 PM | Reply

    He was a criminal before coming into office and everyone knew it.

  20. Barr rejects anything that is evidence of Trumps guilt.
