Trump’s handpicked Attorney General William Barr still hasn’t released the full report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and with each passing day his reluctance looks less like due diligence and more and more like bad faith sandbagging. Barr’s brief summary of the report raised more questions than answers, especially considering the fact Barr conceded that Mueller explicitly did not exonerate the president.
Now, Barr’s Republican hackery is growing more apparent as he stoops to Sean Hannity-grade conspiracy theory peddling. Earlier today he claimed without evidence that the Trump campaign was “spied on,” feeding into the absurd narrative that Donald Trump and his associates are the victims of some sinister “deep state” plot.
Any hopes that Barr might execute his duties faithfully and in the best interests of the nation rather than simply cowing to the wishes of the man who hired him are rapidly evaporating. The longer Barr drags his feet and engages in petty politicking, the more damage he does to the United States.

Now, Democrats are making their feelings on the matter known. In a new interview with The Associated Press Pelosi revealed that her opinion of Barr is rather low and that she was “very concerned” about the manner in which he handled the Mueller report.
Pelosi added that she doesn’t trust Barr. In particular, she pointed to his spying comments as an indication that he might not be acting as independently as an AG is supposed to and that he’s undermining the Constitution by engaging in such rhetoric.
“He is not the attorney general of Donald Trump. He is the attorney general of the United States. I don’t trust Barr, I trust Mueller,” said Pelosi. She added that it’s only a “matter of time” before the full Mueller report is released to the public. “We will see it,” she insisted.
Speaker Pelosi has proven herself to be a woman of action who gets results. When she says we will get the full Mueller report, you can rest assured that we will. The Democratic Party, and by extension the country, are in very good hands.
