President Trump appointed William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions as the Attorney General of the United States because Jeff Sessions followed the law and recused himself from the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Many Republicans and Democrats praised Barr and said he was an institutionalist and a straight shooter in that he would put the rule of law above partisan politics. However, his first two actions has proven otherwise.
First, his refusal to release the Mueller report to congress and, secondly, insinuating that FBI investigators were “spying” when they engaged in court approved surveillance has shown that he is committed to the bidding of the President and not to uncovering the truth and upholding the law. I don’t understand how a man who has a distinguished career that he worked to develop over a lifetime would suddenly throw it all away. Is it fame or power or some convoluted idea that he is doing the right thing in some alternative Trumpian reality?
I just think it is unfair that the American taxpayer is footing the bill for Donald Trump’s “Criminal Defense Attorney.” Barr needs to do the right thing before it is too late to save his legacy. The American people need the truth!
