Barr Bad Lawyer, Defends Self With Heresay

Attorney General William Barr confronted the Senate over the investigation by Special Counsel River Mueller, where he was received by softball questions from Republicans and pointed and revealing ones from Democrats.

While we learned some from the hearing, like how the president and/or his administration have probably asked Barr to investigate Trump's political enemies, we also witnessed an episode of absurdity in Barr's defense of his summary report of Mueller's 400-page report.

Barr insisted we do not really know the truth because Mueller called him up on the phone to say Barr got it right and the big bad media and Democrats are misrepresenting the facts. Barr would not present the Senate with evidence of this heresay conversation, of course.

What makes this even crazier is that a letter from Mueller to Barr surfaced right before the hearing, in which Mueller commented that Barr was the one who got it all wrong and that he should have included more in his summary as to not misrepresent the facts of the investigation and abuse the public trust.

And now Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi have made the allegation  that Barr committed a crime by lying to Congress.
