Barr announced that he is holding a press conference Thursday morning before releasing the highly anticipated report. Several Democrats and pundits voiced that Barr’s decisions is creating a political “sh*t show.”

A committee aide said it was a sham.
“They’re apoplectic,” the aide said. “This whole thing is an sh*t show and a sham. But it’s just what Trump wanted. He hit the jackpot with Barr.”
