Bill Barr has had a tough couple of weeks. Democratic Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee called for his recusal from anything having to do with Ukraine or Rudy Giuliani and his associates. The New York City Bar Association labeled Barr more loyal to Trump than to the country and called for his recusal. Twitter is reverberating with renewed calls for his impeachment.
Barr, however has been undeterred in his quest to use the full force of his office to legitimize Trump’s ravings that the Russia investigation was a sham, concocted by the deep state for political purposes. Barr forges ahead, abandoning the traditional independence of attorneys general to serve as Trump’s fixer.
