Federal Judge Amy Berman ruled that the Justice Department, under Barr, used politics to protect Donald Trump from obstruction
The Attorney General who had had Trump’s back on so many instances now seems like one who has had enough of the defeated president’s bluster and lies.
Once again, a top aide considered one of Trump’s staunchest allies, fell out of favor when he would not break the law to fulfil the corrupt president’s demands.
Donald Trump continues to lie and repeat discredited claims of voter fraud that does not exist while ignoring the reality that a clear majority of voters told him to leave the White House in shame.
Many expect a blitz of pardons from Trump as he winds down the presidential term shortened by voters.
Barr’s phrasing suggests that he, too, knows that Trump’s claims of election fraud are just more lies from the dishonest outgoing president.
One lawmaker called the attorney general’s remarks “the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful things I’ve ever heard.”
In s move that legal experts call “ludicrous” and “baffling,” the Attorney General asks a state court to let the Justice Department handle defense of the president charged in so many cases of sexual aggression.
