Conservative columnist bashes AG Bill Barr with 7 brutal reasons why no one should trust him

Published

On Thursday, Never-Trump conservative columnist and talk radio host Charlie Sykes penned an editorial explaining why he has no faith in Attorney General William Barr — and offered seven reasons why the rest of America shouldn’t trust him either.

“My Barr-skepticism admittedly runs deep,” he wrote, but “The case against blindly trusting Barr has grown more compelling in the weeks since, and especially given his testimony before the Senate on Tuesday.”

His reasons include: Barr was handpicked by President Donald Trump to be his personal “Roy Cohn”; he auditioned for the role with a memo arguing the president could not be accused of obstruction of justice; he followed through with this promise by intervening in special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings; his explanation of the investigation was inadequate; he has shown he cannot act independently of Trump’s personal whims; and he is not taking the steps he legally can to make the Justice Department’s findings transparent to the American people.

The seventh and most damning reason, Sykes wrote, is his reckless decision to say in an open Senate hearing, with no evidence, that he believes the FBI was “spying” on the Trump campaign — an act that seemed calculated to please the president rather than serve any legitimate investigative purpose.

“Predictably, Barr’s comments were eagerly received by his audience of one,” concluded Sykes, noting that Trump referred to the Mueller probe as “treason” shortly before Barr’s testimony began. “And now, it appears, he has an attorney general willing to do something about it.”

Donald Trump in coal helmet thumbs up

If you try to defend President Donald Trump, you will always end up having the rug pulled out from underneath you. It's a law of nature.

And yet, so many of the president's allies have failed to learn this simple lesson. So when Trump launched a new attack at progressive Democratic lawmakers that was one of his most obviously racist smears, inevitably, some of his defenders tried to deny the obvious truth.

His screed attacked a group of women who have come to define the left wing of the Democratic caucus, which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Talib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA). Though only Omar is an immigrant (she was a refugee from Somalia as a child), Trump seemed to assume all four women of color weren't born in the United States, and most egregiously, he suggested they should "go back" to other countries:

Trump is facing massive criticism for his attacks on young women of color in Congress

US President Donald Trump came under fire from Democrats and even some members of his own Republican Party on Monday after launching an extraordinary xenophobic attack on four progressive Democratic congresswomen.

"All they do is complain," Trump told reporters at a White House event featuring products "Made in America."

"These are people that hate our country," he said of the four lawmakers. "If you're not happy here, you can leave."

Trump also accused the four first-term congresswomen -- who are of Hispanic, Arab, Somali and African American origin -- of having "love" for US "enemies like Al-Qaeda."
