'Not Fit For Office': Bush Lawyer Slams Barr For Undermining DOJ | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


Former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer joins MNSBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber to discuss AG Bill Barr’s intervention in DOJ cases to protect convicted Trump aide Roger Stone. Ayer, who also preceded Barr as deputy attorney general under President George H. Bush, argues Barr’s “pattern of conduct that he’s engaged in since he came in” as Attorney General involves “intervening out of usual course to protect Donald Trump.” Ayer adds Barr is not “fit for the office” as his “campaign” as AG works to “undermine the Department of Justice.” (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 02/13/20.

      @Brian Conner The Topic is about Bill Barr. You keep saying evryone has TDS, I suggest you look in the mirror. Bill Barr also confirmed Epstein killed himself, he’s anti 4th amendment as well. Yet you’re here shilling for him?

  5. Barr has trouble doing his job with Donnie’s lil mushroom in his mouth. Boo hoo. Guy keeps a kneeling pad in his briefcase.

    I hope at least the Judge on this case is independent


    • She’s a lowlife obummer judge thug! She allowed and condoned the railroading of stone! She needs to be arrested and thrown in prison for 9 years! Now!

    • The federal Judges appear to be the only semblance of non-partisan truth seekers who seem loyal only to their oaths and represent what appears to be the only responsible evidence of the rule of law remaining in the face of the down right lawlessness we have witnessed during the last few years

    • @John Smith Not gonna happen.

  12. Barr is making life tough for his Grandkids future when their friends find out who their Grandpa was and what he did.

    • @Alex Cortez You mad?

      @Lynn Lamont tell us more

    • Barr will be prosecuted and debarred.
      He is impeding justice, obstructing the judical processes for favors and not acting independently in a manner which follows constitutional law. This who year has been an engagement of bias and not impartial acting.
      He lied on the Mueller Report intently so as to deflect any probable discussion on following more into the investigations. He will be impeached and

    • J Dawg

      His descendants can say he was a triathlete, and a pin-up for the conservative women of DC.
