WASHINGTON
Attorney General William Barr took a public swipe at President Donald Trump on Thursday, saying that the president’s tweets about Justice Department prosecutors and cases “make it impossible for me to do my job.”

Barr made the comment during an interview with ABC News just days after his Justice Department overruled its own prosecutors — who had recommended in a court filing that Trump’s longtime ally and confidant Roger Stone be sentenced to 7 to 9 years in prison — and took the extraordinary step of lowering the amount of prison time it would seek. The department didn't offer an amended number.

Barr himself has been under fire for the Justice Department action, and Thursday's comment served as a defense of his own integrity. He is a Trump loyalist who shares the president’s views on expansive executive powers.


The remarks, made so quickly after the decision to back away from the sentencing, suggested that Barr was aware the reversal had chipped away at the department's historic reputation for independence from political sway. But he stopped short of acknowledging wrongdoing by anyone.

Barr, on the other hand, is making sure that the Durham investigation finality is not tainted by standing up to the President. This is not what the left thinks it is...
Wait, the Mueller investigation was unlawful?

Yes, you believe it was lawful after they knew they had nothing early on and continued with sham FISA warrants?

What makes you think Mueller had nothing? He found plenty.

Very much so, specifically the origins. Beyond unlawful, traitorous.

That's the remedy if he encounters something like this that's a deal breaker for him. Trump should work really hard not to put him in that position though.

Barr is the human manifestation of the rule of law defending Trump from the resistance who have no respect for constitution or law.

I don't consider it an abuse of power or illegal but his first amendment right. But with freedom comes responsibility as to when it's better to speak or not speak. I can forgive it because he's a novice in such matters. However, I think Barr has to say something.
Perfect post, BEP. Concise, clear, and correct. :-)

Errr, he was. Looks like he doesn't want to wash his balls much now.

I realize that this will be too hard for someone like yourself to understand.
