A contempt citation could lead to a civil court case against Barr, raising the possibility of fines and even imprisonment for failure to comply.

Adios, Barr.

Bass: Not one of them were Republicans or donated to Republicans

Trump was investigated by a Republican and then cleared by two other Republicans.

You trust them even knowing they are Republicans. Sorry, angry Republicans? Republicans who hate Clinton?

Bass: Both got nothing

Kim got an end to the wargames, sanctions cancelled by Trump, gave Kim a pass on Otto Warmbier, and praised him as a leader.

Trump has secured nothing in return.

Posted in: Trump announces higher tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods See in context

Besides a greater opening of the Chinese market to U.S. goods, Trump is pressing for structural changes such as Beijing ending its practice of forcing U.S. companies that operate in China to share their technology. Trump is also demanding that China halt intellectual property theft and subsidies to state-owned companies.

This is the most important part of the negotiations. If Trump reduces the trade deficit while this remains largely intact then he really will be useless.

Besides, he could lower the trade deficit overnight by stopping his own manufacturing there, but that would mean he would have to give jobs to his American base, and there's no way in hell the billionaire will take less profit by hiring American workers.

Which actually means nothing because as AG Barr said both men have different opinions

Barr and Mueller have different opinions? What's the difference?

Whew. I had to wait until I reached the end of the article to make sure Trump didn't make another concession to Kim.

I think if he speaks it would help to clear a lot of things up. Both sides will probably hear some things they don't want to hear but it should help put some of the debate to rest.

Trump has a proven history of corruption so my guess he will do everything he can to try to stop it.

Serrano: Wow, talk about taking someone's words completely out of context. if you listen to the whole exchange he was making sure not to let that snake Kamala Harris, who will never be president of the United States, trick him into saying something that would compromise him.

*Harris: **Has the President, or anyone at the White House, ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone?*

*Barr: ** Um....I don't know.*

Yep, I'm sold.

It's like....they know they don't even have to try anymore. They will always have that base built in for support. They just threw some clown out there to make an ass of himself with word salads and that's all they really have to do. Trump's supporters know he is lying, but they will not go against Trump.

Instant classic. It's in the first minute of the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktdi_L0rYkk

Harris: Has the President, or anyone at the White House, ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone?

Barr: Um, I wouldn't....wouldn't.....ah...

Harris: Yes or no.

Barr: Uh....can you repeat that question?

After stuttering around he literally answers the question with, "I don't know."

This is the Attorney General of the United States.

Trump fans are lost without a narrative being handed to them to repeat. Give it another 24 hours and we should see some sprinkles of false equivalency, more wuttaboutism, and distractions.

But for now....seeing their posts....they are completely rudderless.

You know it's bad when even Trump fans can't offer up a defense for Barr's lies.

I guess with no conspiracy theory to splt out at the drop of a hat things become a bit more difficult.

Democrats have accused Barr of misleading Congress by testifying in April he was unaware of any concern by the special counsel's team about Barr's initial March 24 characterization of the report, an account that led Trump to claim full exoneration. Barr failed to mention a March 27 letter he got from Mueller complaining that Barr's March 24 account did not "fully capture the context, nature and substance of this Office's work."

Barr lied, and everyone knows it. Even Trump fans

Posted in: Barr cancels second day of testimony, escalating battle with Congress See in context

This is one of my faves:

*Leahy, May 1:** Why did you testify on April 9 that you didn’t know the concerns being expressed by Mueller’s team, when in fact you had heard those concerns directly from Mr. Mueller two weeks before?*

*Barr:** Well, as I said, I talked directly to Bob Mueller about his letter to me and specifically asked him, what exactly are your concerns, are you saying that the March 24th letter was misleading or inaccurate or what. He indicated that it was not. …*

The question from Crist was, reports have emerged recently, press reports that members of the special counsel’s team are frustrated at some level with the limited information included in your March 24th letter in that they don’t adequately or accurately portray the report’s findings [Barr emphasized the word “findings”]. I don’t know what members he’s talking about, and I certainly am not aware of any challenge to the accuracy of the findings.

*Leahy:** … My question was why would you say you were not aware of concerns when weeks before your testimony Mr. Mueller had expressed concerns to you? …*

*Barr:** Well, I answered a question. And the question was relating to unidentified members who were expressing frustration over the accuracy relating to findings. I don’t know what that refers to at all. I talked directly to Bob Mueller, not members of his team. And even though I did not know what was being referred to, and Mueller had never told me that the expression of the findings was inaccurate, but I did then volunteer that I thought they were talking about the desire to have more information put out. But it wasn’t my purpose to put out more information.*

(end)

So Barr has in his hands a letter from Mueller listing specific concerns. He was asked if he's heard about any concerns. None of his answers made any reference to the letter or the contents.

He's also constantly referring to, "accurately portray the report’s findings" and "was misleading or inaccurate or what. He indicated that it was not" and "over the accuracy relating to findings" and "had never told me that the expression of the findings was inaccurate".

He's specifically crafting answers to focus on the accuracy of the findings when the question is about the honesty of his summary. We want to know why you didn't mention Mueller's issues with context and omission when people asked if you had heard any concerns. The answer is that you're a lying little sleazeball who fits perfectly into Trump's world.

If this guy is smart he will never open his mouth about this ever again.

They're all just so scummy heh.

From what I gather from Fox the Trump angle is that there was nothing factually incorrect and because of that we should ignore obviously misleading language and the intentional omission of context.

Seriously. That's what they are going with. "We didn't lie, we just misrepresented, so what was written was factual."

Bass:. And if you look more closely in that article (which a lot of people don’t for some reason) also States that he said, “he expressed great frustration over the lack of context and the resulting media coverage regarding the special council’s obstruction analysis.”

Oh we saw that.

However, according to the Post, when Barr pressed Mueller as to whether Barr's summary was inaccurate, Mueller said that it was not. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had "misinterpreted" the results of the probe.

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” Mueller told the DOJ. “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”
