Among AG Bill Barr’s crimes, not technically but realistically, is garden-variety theft: stealing taxpayers’ money for representing Donald Trump personally rather than representing the American people. Barr was hired to work for us. He’s not doing that. Period.

Here's how a deal to oust Maduro in Venezuela unraveled

Its hard to imagine that Mr. Bolton and President Trump work in the same building. In his public remarks about their chat, President Trump most certainly did NOT make clear to Putin "that there will be costs for those who further Maduro’s usurpation and repression."

One moment from Barr's hearing that I'm still replaying: This exchange with Cory Booker where Barr seemed to be unaware that Paul Manafort had shared internal polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik.

Harris: Enough in Mueller report for Congress to take next step

With Trump rollback, school lunch could get more white bread, less whole grains

Harris: Barr's non-response on suggestions from W.H. 'suspicious'

"Excuse me, I'm talking, I'm answering this question." In the middle of this appalling answer (which included "the nuclear" because that's very important to him), he still manages to sound like a rich, prissy first grader talking to his mother's maid.

Lindsey Graham has changed his tune on Mueller appearing before Congress. Gotta wonder why

Two days ago Lindsey said, "We're done" with Mueller. Now they want him to come visit? The GOP has suddenly realized that Robert Mueller's testimony will blow this whole thing wide open so they must destroy him as soon as possible

Trump seems to think “freedom of speech” requires social media companies to give platforms to bigots. It does not.

Democrat Adam Schiff is calling on Attorney General William Barr to resign.
