MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called for Attorney General William Barr to lose his law license for lying to Congress.
The “Morning Joe” host conceded that impeachment for President Donald Trump was a long and politically fraught process, but he said there’s a simpler remedy for Barr’s misconduct.
“I tell you something that could be done more quickly and more effectively is looking back at what happened with Bill Clinton,” Scarborough said. “Yes, Bill Clinton got impeached, but you know what else? He got disbarred from the Arkansas Supreme Court for committing perjury.”
“You have the attorney general of the United States of America who has committed perjury — it’s on tape,” he added.
Scarborough said the attorney general should also be disbarred.
“The truth is out there, the evidence is out there and as a certain New York City broadcasting legend said, let’s go to tape,” Scarborough said. “I mean, that’s what they should do. He’s unworthy to be attorney general of the United States, and he is unworthy of even being an officer of the court because he is lying every day.”

Extremist Proud Boys have been trying to ally themselves with Philly cops — and showed up at a local police event: report
Philadelphia is a Democrat-dominated city with a decidedly left-of-center district attorney (Larry Krasner, an ally of Sen. Bernie Sanders) and Black female police commissioner (former Portland, Oregon Police Chief Danielle Outlaw) who was quick to speak out about the death of George Floyd and stress that she encouraged nonviolent protests. But it’s also the city where the infamous Frank Rizzo, who was often accused of police overreach, once served as police commissioner and later, mayor. The far right doesn’t have a lot of influence in Philly, yet in a July 16 article for the Daily Beast, reporter Kelly Weill discusses the efforts of extremist Proud Boys to ally themselves with Philly police officers.
