Calls to Impeach Attorney General Barr Rise After Defense of POTUS

Barr has been on the “resistance” radar for some time, and the left is taking every opportunity they can to chastise him.

When it comes to the “resistance”, it doesn’t really matter if you are a fine person, a grand steward of our nation, or an official elected by the will of the people.  If you happen to support the President or identify as a Republican, you’re going to feel their full and unfiltered wrath.

Such is the silliness of the “resistance”:  It is final, no matter what, no take-backs.  They are not hear for compromise or for educational pow-wows.  They want Trump’s head, just like Kathy Griffin showed them.

That’s why, after Attorney General Bill Barr characterized the “formal impeachment inquiry” as less than legitimate during a recent speech, there are now calls for his ouster as well as the President’s.

During a speech at the Federalist Society’s dinner in Washington, Barr took aim at the “resistance,” accusing liberal lawmakers of attacking the very foundations of the Constitution.

“I deeply admire the American presidency as a political and constitutional institution,” he began. “Unfortunately over the past several decades, we have seen a steady encroachment on executive authority by the other branches of the government.”

Barr said the “avalanche of subpoenas” and constant attempt to derail appointments by the Trump administration have only served to “incapacitate” the executive branch.

Barr even had a message for the “resistance” itself.

“Immediately after President Trump won the election, opponents inaugurated what they called the ‘resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his administration.”

“The cost of this constant harassment is real,” he continued.

The Attorney General had apparently triggered the “resistance” itself with the speech…

“Another lunatic authoritarian speech as Barr goes from attacking ‘radical secularists ‘ [at Notre Dame Law School] to one month later attacking the ‘resistance’ at [the Federalist Society],” tweeted former White House ethics counsel Richard Painter. “Impeach Barr now!”

“Bill Barr is the type of bare knuckles lawyer the Church would have hired thirty years ago to cover up sex abuse cases,” Painter added. “The bishop would have been someone like Rep. Jim Jordan. Neither of these men belong anywhere near the impeachment inquiry.”

Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) echoed that call late Saturday morning.

“Yesterday AG Barr addressed a radical political group and gave one of the most vicious partisan screeds ever uttered by a US cabinet officer,” Pascrell tweeted. “Barr says trump should have king-like powers. Barr is a liar and a fanatic and should be impeached and stripped of his law licenses.”

Barr has been a target of the Democrats’ attempt to shoot the messenger ever since explaining the results of the Mueller report to the American people some months ago.
