One of the Democrats should ask Barr whether he's investigating how FBI predicated an election year investigation into Clinton Foundation based off oppo research. 5 second question. Really important Q.

Hirono: American people know you're no different from Rudy G or Kellyanne Conway of people who sacrifice reputation for the grifter in WH. You've chosen to be POTUS' lawyer and side with him.

Hirono's leadup is a two drink question for Barr. Hitting him on his PR hackery.

Hirono accuses Barr of lying out right. keeps calling his memo a "so-called summary."

Hirono: Now we know more about your deep involvement in trying to cover up for Donald Trump. You should resign. Is WH exerting any influence over mueller testimony. No.

Hirono: You seem to think if it's not a crime then it's no problem. Do you think all the things Trump did are okay? Are they what POTUS should be doing? Barr: I think report is clear ... Barr: I do think it's okay to do what he did. Hirono: OK to ask WHCO to lie?

Barr won't answer question about whether it's okay to float pardons. Hirono: Give us some credit for knowing what is going on around here. Lindsey: You have slandered this man.

While Blackburn is blathering let's review: Barr says you only have to call the FBI if offered dirt by foreign spies, not just foreigners. Won't answer abt whether threatening witnesses and floating pardons is wrong. Won't answer if it's wrong to order WHCO to lie.

How can Mueller be said to have exhausted the investigation w/o interviewing Trump?

Once again, for the benefit of the Attorney General, the report is silent about the key incidents that raise questions abt Trump's relationship w/Putin.

Booker: You're sanctioning stuff. Lies, deceit misconduct, POTUS instructing people to lie & be deceitful, stuff that on its face is morally wrong, whatever legal standard. That is beginning of normalization I want to explore. Excusing a campaign for failure to report contacts.

Booker: They seemed to capitalize on foreign influence. Illegal to sharing polling data w/SUPERPAC, sharing polling data with foreign adversary.

Should American people be grateful that campaign sought to benefit from stolen docs. Barr: I don't know what you mean by seek to benefit. None that was criminal. REminder: most of this was redacted bc Stone was at the core of it.

Booker: Should American people be grateful that Trump people had more than 200 contacts and lied about them? Barr: Foreign govts make a lot of attempts to contact. Barr is pretending not to know abt Manafort sharing polling data w/Kilimnik.

Booker made the point, repeatedly, that doing what Manafort did -- sharing polling data -- would be illegal if done w/a SUPERPAC (which he also did, btw). But bc he shared it with a guy his own deputy believed was a spy, it's not illegal?
