Barr: I AM THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT


Recommended Posts

Quote

 

 

Attorney General William P. Barr delivered a scathing critique of his own Justice Department Wednesday night, insisting on his absolute authority to overrule career staff, whom he said too often injected themselves into politics and went “headhunting” for high profile targets.

 

Speaking at an event hosted by Hillsdale College, a school with deep ties to conservative politics, Barr directly addressed the criticism that has been building for months inside the department toward his heavy hand in politically sensitive cases, particularly those involving associates of President Trump.

 

“What exactly am I interfering with?” he asked. “Under the law, all prosecutorial power is invested in the attorney general.”

He's livid that this didn't gain traction with DoJ prosecutors:

So the second option in the two-tweeter I posted.

Bill Barr has a history of speaking like this, particularly at colleges.

 

His speech last fall at Notre Dame remains one of the most insane political speeches I've ever read / heard.

 

 

You talking about the one where he railed against "secularists"?

 

It gets lost in his corruption that he's also as big a religious nut as Pence.

Either that or the unitary executive one where he argued the President is supposed to be a king, more or less
