LIKE A BOSS: AG Barr Flies by National Guard Transport Plane While in Alaska (Video)
I’d like a window seat, please. Attorney General William Barr is in Alaska this week holding meetings across the vast state. (He also did an interview with CBS News about the Mueller investigation while in Alaska Thursday.)
Justice Department Spokeswoman Kerri Kupec posted video Thursday night of the 69-year-old Barr strapped in a seat in the rear of an Alaska National Guard transport plane. Watch the brief video to share in Barr’s ‘window seat’ view of the Alaska wilderness.
Sometimes plans change and you have to take a military transport plane to your next round-table discussion. Thanks for the lift, @AKNationalGuard! #AdventuresWithAGBarr @TheJusticeDept pic.twitter.com/C46S97Y61T

Kupec earlier posted a newspaper front page on Barr in Alaska.
Meanwhile, in Alaska….

Excerpt of a report by KTOO from Wednesday on Barr’s meetings in Alaska:
U.S. Attorney General William Barr met with Alaska Native leaders from around the state today in Anchorage to discuss law enforcement challenges in rural Alaska.
Barr will spend four days traveling around Alaska, learning about the unique challenges rural areas, particularly villages, face.
“Because of its vast size, and because of the diverse communities, and because of the lack sometimes of easy transportation, it created a lot of serious law enforcement challenges,” Barr said. “And it piqued my interest.”
At a roundtable discussion at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Barr heard from Native leaders about high rates of violence towards Native women and children, the lack of law enforcement in many communities and the limited funding for the resources that currently exist.
…U.S. Justice Department officials wouldn’t go into full detail about the attorney general’s itinerary in Alaska, but a spokesman for Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, said Barr will travel to Galena tomorrow and will visit the Yukon-Kuskokwim hub of Bethel and the village of Napaskiak on Friday.
