MSNBC’s Ali Velshi and a former federal prosecutor shred Bill Barr for his Fox interview

Attorney General Bill Barr

On Friday, MSNBC’s Ali Velshi and Carol Lam, a former federal prosecutor, railed against Attorney General Bill Barr for his interview with Fox News.

Barr sat down with Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer to talk about his commitment to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. This was also his first interview since becoming the attorney general.

“The attorney general is claiming he is not getting sufficient answers to his questions about the origin of the Russia investigation,” Velshi said. “He is putting out there in the same way he put out there that the Mueller investigation exonerated President Trump which we found out not to be true.”

Lam said that Barr should at least try to defend the institution he leads and not the president.

“It’s difficult for me to say this about a sitting attorney general, but you would expect the president’s legal team to sort of giving the benefit of the doubt to the president. You expect the attorney general to defend a little bit the institution that he heads.”

“It really seems like he’s doing the opposite here as you point out. He’s dropping little bombs, using phrases like ‘spying’ and ‘abuse of power’ and ‘putting a thumb on the scale.’ What he should say is that we’re looking into this and that’s all I’m going to say about it at this time,” she said.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."
