Trump's attorney general wants god's moral order enforced by government

In a 1995 essay, Barr expressed the
extremist Christian view that “American government should not be
secular;” secularism is an abomination in Barr’s theocratic mind despite
the law of the land is unmistakably secular. Furthermore, Barr contends
America’s government is supposed to be imposing “a transcendent moral
order with objective standards of right and wrong that flows from God’s
eternal law;” eternal law best dictated by the Vatican and taught in
public schools at taxpayer’s expense.

Some on Mueller’s Team Say Report Was More Damaging Than Barr Revealed

Some of Robert S. Mueller III’s investigators have told associates that
Attorney General William P. Barr failed to adequately portray the
findings of their inquiry and that they were more troubling for
President Trump than Mr. Barr indicated, according to government
officials and others familiar with their simmering frustrations.

Forget Mueller. Forget Impeachment. A Million People Should Surround the White House and Demand Trump's Resignation

What a farce and distraction this whole exercise turned out to be!
Mueller’s assigned subject was Trump. So, does this prosecutor demand to
interview Trump, to subpoena Trump? No. Does this special investigator
conclude with any legal recommendations at all? No.

Really, what should we have expected from someone who, as FBI
Director, testified before Congress as part of the Bush/Cheney regime,
pushing for the criminal invasion of Iraq in 2003?

Trump’s AG Bill Barr has a history of cover-ups — and he just struck again

Back in 1992, the last time Bill Barr was U.S. attorney general, iconic New York Times writer William Safire referred to him as “Coverup-General Barr” because of his role in burying evidence of then-President George H.W. Bush’s involvement in “Iraqgate” and “Iron-Contra.” General Barr has struck again—this time,
in similar fashion, burying Mueller’s report and cherry-picking
fragments of sentences from it to justify Trump’s behavior.

Bill Barr’s Weasel Words

Special counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report on the Russia
investigation, and Republicans are gloating. They claim a four-page letter from Attorney General William Barr, purporting to summarize the report, exonerates
President Donald Trump. They’re wrong. The letter says the Justice
Department won’t prosecute Trump, but it reaches that conclusion by
tailoring legal standards to protect the president. Here’s a list of
Barr’s weasel words and what they’re hiding.

Trump Asserts Executive Privilege Over Full Mueller Report

President Trump asserted executive
privilege on Wednesday in an effort to shield hidden portions of Robert
S. Mueller III’s unredacted report and the evidence he collected from
Congress. The assertion, Mr. Trump’s
first use of the secrecy powers as president, came as the House
Judiciary Committee is expected to vote Wednesday morning to recommend
the House of Representatives hold Attorney General William P. Barr in
contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for the same material.

Barr’s Most Absurd Defenses Of Trump’s Obstructive Conduct

By now, it’s pretty clear that Attorney General Bill Barr thinks there
was nothing unusual — let alone potentially criminal — about President
Trump’s intervention in the federal Russia investigation. Not the
repeated pushes to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, not the public
fuming about being the innocent victim of a federal “witch hunt,” not
the tweeted threats to the family of his former personal attorney.

Mueller complained that Barr’s letter did not capture ‘context’ of Trump probe

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wrote a letter in late March complaining
to Attorney General William P. Barr that a four-page memo to Congress
describing the principal conclusions of the investigation into President
Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of
Mueller’s work, according to a copy of the letter reviewed Tuesday by
The Washington Post.
