'Barr’s view of the absolute and unbounded supremacy of executive power is frightening and dangerous as hell He wields the enormous power of the DOJ not in pursuit of the law and justice, but as a weapon against Trump’s enemies. His personal role in attempting to create a phony Deep State conspiracy to placate Trump has taken him all the way to Europe, where he’s personally undertaken Deep State investigations on the president’s behalf. His efforts to silence cooperation of White House and administration members who have been requested to testify before Congress isn’t to protect executive privileges; it’s to defend Donald Trump’s political fortunes. These actions, and likely many more we haven’t seen in the public view at this time, are absolutely disqualifying for an Attorney General of the United States of America.'

"From the beginning, Bill Barr has never viewed his role as a neutral figure empowered to uphold and enforce the law, but rather as an explicit enabler of Donald Trump. He's quite openly been a man willing to violate every conceivable norm and to serve as an overtly partisan shield against accountability. He applied for the job with a memo promising to have the most expansive view of the powers of Donald Trump, not to uphold the sacred oath of the office....Because he's meeting with Rupert Murdoch, that's why. Rupert's enormous ratings and massive social power over the Trump base is a two-way street, and Barr knows it."
