RELEASED: AG Bill Barr Spanks Democrats in His Prepared Remarks Before Senate Judiciary Committee

Attorney General William Barr will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.  This is his first of two back-to-back hearings he will take part in on Capitol Hill this week.

According to The Hill, Democrats are expected to grill the attorney general over his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian election interference.

His prepared remarks were posted online earlier this week.

The last paragraph of his opening remarks sticks out. Attorney General Bill Barr appears to spank Democrats who want to continue the collusion-delusion charade.

The responsibility of the Department of Justice, when it comes to law enforcement, is to determine whether crimes have been committed and to prosecute those crimes under the principles of federal prosecution. With the completion of the Special Counsel’s investigation and the resulting prosecutorial decisions, the Department’s work on this matter is at its end aside from completing the cases that have been referred to other offices. From here on, the exercise of responding and reacting to the report is a matter for the American people and the political process. As I am sure you agree, it is vitally important for the Department of Justice to stand apart from the political process and not to become an adjunct of it.
