US Attorney General Bill Barr on Friday evening stood up for President Trump and the Executive Branch stating that Democrats are “using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the Executive Branch.”
Mr. Barr spoke at an annual meeting at the conservative Federalist Society on Friday where he slammed the radical Democrat ‘resistance’ party that is currently attacking President Trump with every tool available to them.
“As I said, the framers fully expected intense pulling between Congress and the Executive. Unfortunately just in the past few years we’ve seen these conflicts take on an entirely new character. Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘the resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the Executive Branch and his administration. The language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes, it obviously connotes, that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.”
“This is a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a Democratic republic,” Barr continued. “The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president.”
Of course the radical, anti-American left went crazy over Bill Barr’s speech and calls for his impeachment intensified.
Since Bill Barr was confirmed as attorney general earlier this year, Democrats in both chambers such as Pelosi and Schumer have accused him of being Trump’s personal lawyer rather than the US attorney general.
The New York City Bar Association last month called for Barr to recuse himself from all Ukraine-related matters.
“If he fails to do so, he should resign or, failing that, be subject to sanctions, including possible removal, by Congress,” the statement said.
The left will never stop attacking Trump and his associates.
“Impeach Barr now!” screamed former chief White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter, calling Barr a ‘radical authoritarian.’
Another lunatic authoritarian speech as Barr goes from attacking “radical secularists” at @NDLaw to one month later attacking the “resistance” at @FedSoc.
Impeach Barr now!

Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell (NJ) called for “liar” Bill Barr to be “impeached and stripped of his law licenses.”
Yesterday AG Barr addressed a radical political group and gave one of the most vicious partisan screeds ever uttered by a US cabinet officer. Barr says trump should have king-like powers. Barr is a liar and a fanatic and should be impeached and stripped of his law licenses. https://t.co/hVl2V59OHh

Other radical leftist lawyers clutched their pearls and attacked Barr on Twitter.
It’s not just that the Attorney General of the United States said these things; it’s that his audience at the @FedSoc convention gave him a standing ovation for doing so.https://t.co/3HrUMpIhar
The executive power passages were deeply hypocritical; this is downright offensive. pic.twitter.com/SFys3u6Zs6

This is so outrageously inappropriate for an AG to be saying. You are the head of the DOJ for all Americans not just the ones in the Federalist Society. Please start acting like it. https://t.co/OcaHZGi0ey
