The notion that Barr was "protecting" investigations seems like horseshit.
He was preventing MUELLER from talking about it. 🤬
The broader pattern: Bill Barr seems to have kept with the US Media's initial frame that the "Internet Research Agency" was "young people" "trolling" for "Putin's chef," rather than the IRA being a very well-funded, organized intelligence attack on the 2016 U.S. election. 🤬— Eric Garland (@ericgarland) September 18, 2020
