Attorney General William Barr’s testimony slapped me in the face and, just for good measure, kicked me in the gut.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said, “I appreciate very much what Mr. Mueller did for the country. I’ve read most of the report, and for me, it’s over.”
Additionally, it’s terribly sad that I can recognize whether the members of the Senate who are grilling Barr are Republican or Democrat based on the first few words that come out of their mouths. Right or wrong is not determined by the facts; it’s determined by party affiliation. There’s no attempt here at objectivity. Desperately sad.
If I had to sum it up it would be this: Every time the Democrats speak they want to know how Barr handled the Mueller report. And every time the Republicans speak they want to know how the investigation was started, that it never should have been written, that it exonerates the president, that it should have focused on Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and FBI agent Peter Strzok.
