One problem with the quoted remarks is that THIS IS AN INTENTIONAL MISQUOTE OF THE ACTUAL QUOTE THE WHOLE FAKE CONTROVERSY IS BUILT ON

Rule of thumb: If you have to re-arrange the words in a quote to make it a gaffe, you weren’t actually offended. See also how Obama’s “you didn’t build that” became “Obama said business owners didn’t build their businesses.”

Chirs Wallace: "You got into this very curious area where the Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the president, rather than the Attorney General."

If the point was to have Barr’s spin dominate the news for a couple of hours before people read the report then that strategy failed miserably because the only story the media (sans Fox) will be talking about was that sycophantic performance, which pretty much gave the game away.

So basically the Attorney General's argument is it's not illegal for the President to break the law if law enforcement is hurting his feelings.

The basic rationalization Barr gives for why Trump didn’t legally obstruct justice is that he was emotionally upset about being accused of potential crimes and bad media coverage and acted out. That’s the actual argument the Attorney General of the United States made.

That arrogant, willfully misleading press conference was shocking even by 2019 standards. We continue to underreact to our government's transformation into an authoritarian junta.

We are seeing insert the word "just" before Rep Omar's quote. I hope one day to be so intellectually dishonest that I, too, can be hired by the NY Times to write op-eds.

Barr says he and Rosenstein disagree with Mueller's legal theories about possible obstruction of justice before letting anyone see what Mueller's theories are..and says whatever Trump did was out of his sincere belief that the investigation about collusion was baseless. Wow...

I don't know what's in the Mueller report, and I'm looking forward to finding out. I do know that, after that performance, this has already been a very bad day for the long-term institutional credibility of the Department of Justice, which should matter to—and bother—all of us.

I simply don’t understand how you can actually claim that Trump "took no act that in fact deprived the Special Counsel” of witnesses when Trump REFUSED TO SIT DOWN FOR AN INTERVIEW WITH THE SPECIAL COUNSEL!!

I'd like to congratulate Bill Barr on securing his spot alongside the Worst Attorneys General in American History.

This is a moment of truth for the press. Are they going to let Barr get away with this PR stunt on behalf of Trump (spoiler: yes) or will they ask questions ONLY about why he’s doing what he’s doing (spoiler: no)?

So, if Nadler’s tweet is true, Bill Barr will have summarized the Mueller report, redacted it, briefed the White House on it, and then given a press conference on it all before allowing Congress to see it.

"Mr. Trump is the only president in the history of Gallup polling never to earn the support of a majority of Americans even for a single day of his term."
