      Bill Barr will end up behind bars
      Bill Barr is the Supreme enemy of and the United States Rule of Law and the United States Constitution; The great freedoms, liberties and rights that All Americans, though not always equally, benefit as a result of The United States Constitution are paramount to all else. All those who fought to create, protect, and defend it, many with differing opinions, but generally with common goals- Unity, not Division. Protection, not Persecution.
      Bill Barr has repeatedly proven he believes that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, his political allies, loyalists, and protectors, as well as himself, current the Head of the Department of Justice are all above the law. The United States Rule of Law and United States Constitution does not apply to them.
      BILL BARR is the Modern-day ROY COHN.
      Roy Cohn Defended Senator Joseph McCarthy of Indiana.
      Roy Cohn Defended, then Donald J Trump, a boy of incredible privilege, who inherited over $500,000,000 dollars in 1996 and had success primarily as a “Celebrity” and reality TV Show Star. Far less in any real estate venture or as a “businessman”.
      Now, Bill Barr Defends President Donald J Trump, his political allies, loyalists, and criminal associates.
      HISTORY will Judge Bill Barr THE same as ROY COHN.
      Bill Barr need to be disbarred and Behind bars. He is the real Traitor of The United States of America.

      Trump proclaimed during his campaign rallies that there would be so much whining that we’d get tired of all the whining.

    • He forgot those words before the interview was over.

    He struggled to answer because as the Consigliere to BONE SPURS it could get him in trouble!

    • T Electronix | July 30, 2020 at 1:41 AM | Reply

      He believes “Yes, it definitely is” but even he couldn’t quite bring himself to be caught under oath and on camera saying “Yes, it is”

      His first response was just another weasel word attempt.

      No he struggled not to commit perjury AGAIN.

  10. When Barr said “It depends what kind”, the follow up question should have been “What kind of foreign assistance is acceptable?”

    • @Rick Murie It can still be asked in a future hearing, much like questions that were asked based on earlier hearings.

    • T Electronix | July 30, 2020 at 3:13 AM | Reply

      @Rick Murie Asking open questions, when he knows each person only gets 5 minutes, would have been a gift to Barr.

    • If he had answered that way a second time, yes, but the answer was unambiguously “no,” which is why Cicilline gave him a second chance, speaking very, very slowly so he and Trump and everyone could hear every word of the question — with an “of any kind” thrown in for emphasis. Devastating question and Barr immediately threw in the towel. You could see by his body language it was a check mate on that topic and he hated it.

    • Painting Animals On Rocks | July 30, 2020 at 7:49 AM | Reply

      Yeah, I wanted to hear the answer to that.

    • Abdulghani Mohamed | August 1, 2020 at 1:06 PM | Reply

      Americans! I think you are forgetting that Barr is not US Attorney but Trump Attorney. By humiliating himself to that extent he is not only keeping the office but also freeing himself from Trump insults.

  11. Barr is the Hippo wallowing in the swamp !

      Or like Nancy Pelosi says, _”a blob.”_ Rich comments coming from a senile old lady that loses control of her facial muscles during an interview.

  12. Barr: “It depends on the assistance.”
    America: “Sigh 🤷🤦”

      @Antonio saxon In truth, Barr is doing pretty good. The dark side doesn’t like him because he poses a genuine threat of exposing their corruption/criminality. They can throw temper tantrums all they want. Indictments of the coup cabal are on the horizon.

    • So the party of law and order are really just crooks selectively applying the laws to reward themselves and punish everyone else. Corruption 101.

    • Maharajji NKB | July 30, 2020 at 3:30 PM | Reply

      @Mainely No. The Obama admin was the most corrupt in our lifetimes. There was a two-tiered system of justice under Obama. Political friends got a pass. Political enemies got the axe. Not to mention the corruption of Obamagate, an attempted soft coup against President Trump, using the powerful resources of our own government agencies. Outrageous.

      Glad to see you’re so impressed by a hypocrite whose own party paid for the Steel Dossier’s Russian foreign interference in the 2016 election.

    • He literally had to walk him through the correct legal answer. Stunning arrogance and criminal mindedness.

  16. There’s nothing “shocking” with this administration anymore.
    The only thing that would surprise me would be 24 hours without some dirty bs.

    • Barr is expanding these SS units, regardless, to build an army to protect the regime. They CANNOT ALLOW elections! They KNOW the trump’s and the entire Cabinet are going to JAIL, if they allow elections. These unconstitutional, illegal, SS units have ONE PURPOSE: Protect the Regime, when they deny you elections. Get them OUTLAWED! Now!

  17. The only thing shocking is that people still pay attention to Trump.

    • Brett Barnes | July 30, 2020 at 1:54 PM | Reply

      What’s more shocking is that Cicilline doesn’t see the hypocrisy in his own accusation about foreign interference when we all know that Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party accepted foreign interference in the 2016 election from Russia and Ukraine.

    • William Hodgden | July 30, 2020 at 2:39 PM | Reply

      @hunterrgntr I think you have that wrong but you being a snowflake I am sure your use to that. First off it’s the democrats that serve the sheep kool aid. But further more it’s your party that is tearing this country apart that you claim to like. I hope you and others will wake up before you find yourself betrayed by your own party. Unless of course your one those kneelers to our great flag. Democrats believe in riots and protecting illegals. They want to destroy our country as we know it and that must be your goal as well for supporting them.

    • @William Hodgden Ahh the last resort of a true snowflake ❄ 😆 🤣 😂. Meaningless jabber and the obligatory attempt at an insult. Nice try Lao Che ( Indiana Jones reference). Seems like I hit a nerve. Btw I am neither Dem nor Repub just call me an American thank you very much.

    • ✔️ Trump 🇺🇸

    • Well the problem is maniacs like the commenters here who think they’re supposed to be involved with the presidents day to day activities at all time. Pay attention to local elections that affects your life on a daily basis much more. The executive branch is not supposed to be obsessed about You guys are so fixated and so laser-focused on Trump. I get it he drives you nuts. But some of you guys really need to get a grip and focus on what’s really important. You sound as bad as the kids who live their lives on Twitter or Facebook 24/7

    The way the secret army of Barr and Trump are carrying out is exactly like ISIS warfare tactics.

      ISIS never had the funding these goons do. They don’t have the training or tactics, either. Make no mistake, this authoritarian militia is much more dangerous. They are pulling this off so far without lethal projectiles or incendiary devices. If they wanted to neutralize protests with prejudice, it would be a massive casualty count.
