Bill Barr Laughs After He Schools Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Over His Use of the Term “Spying” (VIDEO)
Attorney General Bill Barr Wednesday testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Mueller’s report.
Barr is not intimidated by the screeching Democrats and he’s putting them in their places.
Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) isn’t very bright — he actually argued that it was unfair to Trump to NOT indict him.
“If you are the president of the United States, you can either waive or readily override the OLC opinion and say I’m ready … I want to exonerate myself. Let’s go. Could you not?” Sheldon Whitehouse asked Barr.
Barr replied, “How is this relevant to my decisions?”
Barr also schooled Sheldon Whitehouse on his previous use of the term “spying.”
“I don’t think spying has any kind of pejorative connotation at all,” Barr said. “I think spying is a good English word…It’s commonly used in the press…”
Sheldon Whitehouse shot back and said the word “spying” isn’t commonly used by the Department of Justice.
“It’s commonly used by me,” Barr said laughing.
