Attorney General William Barr's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Mueller report truly exposed his bias in favor of President Trump!
It was obvious to anyone watching their TVs that Barr obviously is using his position to insulate the president from legal scrutiny.
Despite a report that said otherwise, Barr framed Robert Mueller’s findings as an exoneration of the president. Barr even denied a letter from Mueller criticizing his handling of the report.
In his letter that was made public, Mueller wrote, “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation,” indicating also that “full public confidence is threatened.” Mueller also complained that the attorney general “had not properly portrayed his findings in the four-page memo that summarized his report's main conclusion.”
Although Mueller didn't charge the president directly with obstruction of justice, he wrote that he “couldn't exonerate him, either.” (That line alone clearly indicates a need that members of the Judiciary Committee be provided the full 441-page redacted report!)
It is apparent that Barr has done nothing but run interference for Trump and in delving deeper into his past history, it is easy to see that he is an "apparatchik" ... less committed to the rule of law than he is to his political party and its leadership.
In the past Barr has often asserted his belief that “a president cannot be charged with obstruction of justice” and he made the same argument at the Senate Judicial Committee hearing.
Unless he voluntarily resigns, Barr will be attorney general for at least the next 20 months because Trump won't dump him, as long as he protects him!
The same goes for other figures in the Trump administration who were welcomed back into the halls of power despite condoning torture or abusing the public trust.
Although the president often refers to himself as being “totally transparent," he rarely exhibits himself to be open, frank and/or candid!
If pictures are worth a thousand words, then let those of us who recognize the truth, pray for those who are blind to the truth that they may recognize “what is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!” (However, if they should still choose to remain blind to the truth, remember that GOD can't take back His Word about giving us all free will!)
