House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) viciously attacked US Attorney General Bill Barr in a scathing op-ed in USA Today and called for Barr to immediately resign.
“Barr is the 2nd most dangerous man in the US. By his logic, the Saturday Night Massacre was fine and Trump can end the 14 probes Mueller handed off,” Schiff wrote.
Schiff echoed Speaker Pelosi and accused Barr of lying to Congress and misleading the country.
“William Barr should resign,” Schiff wrote. “After the events of this past month, it is clear that Barr is not that leader. And more than that, he is dangerous.
The swamp is very afraid of Barr because he just launched a sweeping investigation into Spygate and believes “spying did occur” during the 2016 election.
Bill Barr confirmed in the Senate hearing Wednesday in an exchange with Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) that he has looked into and is continuing to look into the origins of the illegal CI investigations of Trump and his associates.
Schiff continued his attacks on Barr and accused him of ‘amplifying Trump’s false talking points about collusion.’
As expected, Schiff brought up the March 27th letter Robert Mueller sent to Bill Barr complaining about the public perception of his report following Barr’s release of the “principal conclusions.”
“In his March 27 letter, Mueller stated that Barr’s actions had undermined a central purpose of the special counsel regulations, to “assure full public confidence in the outcome” of the investigation. Mueller was right, but Barr’s actions and statements have done far worse than that. They have undermined public confidence in the independence of the DOJ and the fair administration of justice,” Schiff wrote.
Schiff concluded that Barr’s belief that Trump could end an investigation that is based on false allegations (he can) makes him the second most dangerous man in the country.
The Democrats are afraid of Bill Barr because he is a real attorney general who immediately took control of the Justice Department, unlike Jeff Sessions who was a coward and hid under his desk while Rosenstein, Mueller and Weissmann destroyed the lives of many innocent men by charging them with process crimes.
