  1. let's not forget what Barr did before the release of the Mueller Report. Also, I have one thing to say about Barr #LockHimUp

  2. If Barr gets a pardon from Trump it’s very possible SDNY will be waiting for BOTH him and Trump where federal pardons are not applicable.

  3. Barr got Bush out of being impeached over Iran contra but the media and the CIA covered that up they murdered that reporter from California, remember!

  4. The Attorney General of the United States states facts, and this moron from MSNBC tries to create doubt. Is anyone stupid enough to believe MSNBC?

  5. Trump needs an AG to protect him against the law and found one in Barr who swore his fealty to his Lord- a Russia Strawman.

  6. GEORGE H.W. DOESN'T MEAN MODERATES. Barr and HW were only there blocking for Reagan's treason in Iran Contra. Both are just traitor stooges and you would KNOW THAT if you bothered to read your history!

  7. Alfred Hitchcock would cast the Democrats as a "Ship of Fools". While HIllary has complete list of Russian Assets, now the Democrats are accusing the Attorney General, and calling for Justice Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to recuse himself. This Chaos is going to end when Adam Schiff ends up on Hillary's list of Russian Assets. That is the surprise ending.

  8. You can tell when one of the W.H(Mr Grab'em's)people want to get there lie's out they go straight State run(Fox)because other stations won't let you lie on their time Cnn,Msnbc,ABC will not let y'all Spew propaganda on their Networks,thank God.✊

  9. He starts off: "there's a fair amount of troublesome evidence and bad news for President Trump on Ukraine". Then he says: "there's one place in Washington where Trump still sees his world view loudly affirmed". "Troublingly it's the justice department"….. Ok, so let's just logically it break down. In analyzing the first 3 statements and you know your aren't dealing in facts or reality but just supposition designed to intentionally and hopefully lead the listener into well, thinking of their President as a criminal.
    What happened to the 1st statement? What is the fair amount of troublesome evidence and bad news? You never said what it was. You would think that if you had troublesome evidence and bad news about the President of the US that you would say what it is but you never do. And that's because THERE ISN'T ANY. Simple deception and mind control disinformation.
    Go ahead and do this exercise. Stop the video and analyze each sentence/statement. The illusion of this Masquerading asfree press" individual can be examined and taken apart and facts and actual evidence are absent during this slight of hand hollow magic trick. How about this dousy- "There's one place in Washington where Trump still sees his world view loudly affirmed". "Troubling it's the justice department". One place, one place in all of Washington- No other place or individual. Really? In all of Washington. Now how is that possible. Well it's not, but we are MSNBC and we don't deal in reality, especially when it comes to President Trump. Then he comes to full circle with this "nothing at all" presentation "technique" by saying.- "Troubling it's the justice department." Troubling how? You didn't say anything. Remember now, there's a fair amount of troublesome evidence and bad news for President Trump on Ukraine. Then they go into an attempt to marginalize and invalidate AG Barr for supporting with well; nothing at all. All of this is purposeful. All of these are intentional efforts to lead Mr. and Mrs America astray in their thinking process about their President. Free press masqueraders- ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE.

  10. Dems still have no idea about what Trump admin is doing.
    Trump knows what he is doing, reversed everything Obama did, then either did things by his own men or started counteractions by his own men.
    Impeachment isn't enough, Brexit is a trick to break or slow down EU, replace TPP with a fake trade war against China is a cover-up for his "money supply", don't be fooled by what we saw that CCP punished Trump's base. This kind of two-man show is a typical traditional ruling art.
    The important things needed to do right now is EU+Japan+Canada to start a real economic war against CCP to cooperate impeachment, destroy the base of McConnel's fund rising game.

  11. MSNBC there is no basis for impeachment. You say it is troubling that AG Barr does not seek to destroy Trump, as Barr sees the bias on the part of the Democrat Party and the Socialist propagandist media of MSNBC/CNN. I watch MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, and I don't get anything substantive from MSNBC, a lot of insinuations but no real evidence.

  12. If trump is so innocent about his perfect call to Ukraine then why is Barr afraid to say no to the question about asking a foreign government to investigate the Biden's? 🤔 because he knows it can come back to him and then get prosecuted as well so guilty.

  13. Kanguru Demo Court has to be stopped! That's Barr's job! Funny hou those fake news talk about "criminal" acts of Trump and say nothing about Joe Biden me!!!!

  14. Barr is probably one of the most dangerous and corrupt people in that gang. It's amazing how someone can be even more evil than Jeff Sessions. But welcome to the republican/Nazi party. Just like at FOX ENTERTAINMENT NEWS, you have vile people who do their best to show the boss who can be the vilest.

  15. If Trump uses Bill Barr as his personal defence attorney, he has to remove him as head of the Justice Department. Though Barr has a big head, he isn't permitted to wear both hats.

  16. Yeah, Barr. Like he's going to fight being "ordered" to vacation on the people's dime in European countries … oh, I mean go to Europe to investigate spurious conspiracy theories that have already been looked into … err…. spend tax dollars to work to undermine the political rivals of Trump on Trump's orders?
    Did he report to anyone that this wasn't necessary a good use of American Tax dollars?
    or is he just enjoying himself traveling in European countries and doesn't care?

  17. I hate the left, it’s immoral and disgusting politics are destroying society… at the same time Trump is just as bad, a loathsome individual. Trumps whole administration needs prison time. As does virtually all the presidents before him.

  18. EVERYBODY knew that Fat Barr will be turning the DOJ into exactly this law violating defense for the Orange Criminal. Fat Barr is a corrupt and criminal fixer and should end up like Cohen and Epstein!

  19. Fred Flintstone looking for Barney Rubble!!! We have the greatest country on earth. This present administration is so corrupt how can these guys even sleep at night??? Our founding fathers are watching all of this and saying to themselves what has happen to america we created for all??? Greed, deceit, dishonor, lies, untruths.

  20. A.G.Fred Flintstone cannot save the lawless one in chief,because when the whole truth comes out,he also will need help as well,because he is involved in the cover up,that's why he was hired.

  21. My God. Can we just purge our government of these pathetic sycophants. Horrible people with zero integrity. The whole lot of them. Continuing to see people like Barr and Trump, being taken seriously, is infuriating imo.

  22. Barr should be the first one investigated and thrown in prison. He is not an attorney general. Just the opposite…a defender and enabler of corruption at every turn. I can't believe nothing has been done to stop him.

  23. What we have is a loosey goosey ship run by the GOP ..that has turned into a glowing cannon of a snowball. No plan, its going to blowww!

  24. BARR IS SEWAGE, CRIMINAL IN EVERY WAY, HE IS SO UGLY NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE JUST SOME HUMANOID SUBSTANCE THAT LIKELY COULD PRODUCE "HIS BABY." UGGGGHHH

  25. Prosecuting the law enforcement officers who investigated the guy who gave him his job. Absolutely nothing shady about it…

  26. Have we not had a strong Arimerican institution, coupled by strong laws, at this very moment, trump and his people would have undoubtedly start killing those who opposed him for self preservation. We all have witnessed these pilitical atrocities all around the world. America, it is time to side with democracy before it is too late.

  27. Barr's been cleaning up Republican Presidents messes for decades. He's been dirty for decades starting with the Reagan/Bush 41 administration.

  28. Boy, barr makes sessions look like an angel. At least sessions recused himself from the russian probe. Barr should completely recuse himself from the DOJ. That way he can move into the white house and work with guilani. Oh, wait, they will then end up in the same place once it is shown that barr is just as guilty. These are just my opinions/thoughts.

  29. How sad and downright depressing that the DOJ has allowed itself to become the DOT…..Department of Trump. Barr is an unmitigated disgrace and should be forced to resign for failing, miserably, to work for the American people, rather serving Trump and Trump only. This man is a servile coward and he’s a criminal. No more GOP!! America is tired of these corrupt, racist boot lickers!

  30. People talk about the honest integrity of John Durham, but they forget one thing: he's been touched by Trump. Everyone Trump touches, gets contaminated.

  31. Trump is right about Italy's involvement in the oranges of the 2016 election interference. Those valencia oranges simply can't be trusted.

  32. There is so much evidence that Trump and his acolytes can’t draw a distance between Trump affairs/ business/ self interest and state business, Trump’s trash cabinet have to go.

  33. We're the best law enforcement in the world soon as this president got in office he's bragging to Russians how he fired James Comey

  34. Barr has absolutely NO RESPECT FOR THIS COUTRY. His allegiance is purely focused on Trump. Isn’t his job about serving the good people of this nation?

  35. All those conservative judges that trump.has been appointing have an even bigger agenda . They all come from a group called ALEC , which represents the biggest and richest corporations in this country which for the last 40 years have been under cutting workers rights and civil liberties … they might be conservative , but their main objective and alliegience is to big corporations . .ALEC entire mission is to make money , by what ever means possible and to get money from every place , person possible
    These judges will vote in favor for corporations over ppl every time. . And VITE to take away rights from.average citizens who are not in the 1% percentile of earners .
    They are currently working on taking away voting rights for women , young. Ppl and minorities ….as well as making it illegal to have abortions and restricting birth control with very bad ulterior motives. . .they want to privatize. Children's services and adoptions .And put forth a newborn tax . If you're unable to pay it , they talk the baby .. apparently there us big money in the stem cell research area ….when we nade it illegal to conduct that research on aborted fetuses. I guess we should of specified that newborn babies (alive ones ) were off limits too .
    That's why trump is doing away with child's rights they stated that children do not have a. Right to have food . Etc

    Anything for more money these guys are truly sick and demented

  36. Trump may not be impeached or go to jail but the people around him doing his bidding are and he's leaving them in jail no pardons. if he is impeached more people are most definitely going to jail
