The nominee to be attorney general has backed some of the presidents worst impulses on the Russia inquiry.

Mr. Barr recommended that President George H.W. Bush pardon Reagan administration officials convicted or implicated in the Iran-contra scandal, including former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. Would he object to Mr. Trump pardoning his former national security adviser Michael Flynn or Paul Manafort, whom Mr. Mueller has accused of giving polling data to an associate connected to Russian intelligence? Mr. Trump has certainly considered it.
Nevertheless, I still have my doubts, especially due to Barr's previously reported apparent close friendship with Mueller.
Chris Christie was the right pick in 2016
Sometimes we need to look beyond feelings and look at qualifications, Christie locked up a ton of corrupt democrats. He knows how to do it.
Sessions locked up stoners, big deal, mall cops do that every day.
It depends what the meaning of “justice” is.—Bill BJ Clinton
it is such a shame that NYC and WashDC (and LA and Boston and San Fransicko and...) are afflicted with, in essence, one monopoly newspaper each
(little ones nothwithstanding, there’s precious little if any competition anymore in these markets)
monopolies are bad for consumers! monopolists extract market rents (in regular English.... they can charge excessive prices and render poor service.. and the consumer has no real alternatives but to suffer)
either let’s see some real strong new competitors in these controlled, captive markets..................or else, let’s use the “progressive” anti-trust laws and break up these harmful monopolies ... creating several competitive products in each market
You must be joking. I’m a Christie fan as a governor, but he’d be the most ego-driven, erratic and disloyal AG this country has ever seen. His first loyalty was always to the Bush family; he was a major fundraiser for GWB, and it was Bush who appointed him to his post as a Federal prosecutor.
Sorry, I had to quit reading the Slimes article after they claimed Killary had nothing to do with the Uranium One deal.
FAKE, LYING NEWS!! Pisses me off.
“With Barr, Will Justice Be Done?”
He’s of and from the DC miasma...I am not sanguine.
The answer to the question is no. Replacing a friend of Mueller with another close friend of Mueller. Just great who the hell is responsible for these picks? Another lost golden opportunity and you only get so many.
But Trump was aghast that CC would put a “Mom” behind bars for breaking the law; only male felons should go to jail.
President Trump apparently didn’t like it either, so he crossed Christie off the list.
Jeff Sessions seemed the opposite of Christie, but look where that got us.
Point being we simply don’t really know until they get into the position.
The real issue is not if they can do the job, but will they buckle under the inevitable leftist pressure to do the wrong thing.
Justice would be ALL of the participants of the Kenyanesian Usurpation being locked up.
But that would empty Washington D.C.
Christie conveniently had his phone turned off during those crucial days, and never showed up to those meetings.
The guy was never anything more than a political opportunist.
Charlie Brown .....Lucy-Football...
He’s prolly even more subterranean than most of the other Swamp Critters-he’s been out of sight and off radar making lots work for the DS in the background.
The NY Slimes is against it. I’m for it. Mueller has done a great job with the Russia quest, distracting the press for years.
The dude helped knock out 50 corrupt democrats in one operation
How many did Sessions go after? zero
How many did Holder go after?
This guy has a record
Sure he has an ego, who cares, so does our President and just about everyone else in DC.
I want a man who can fight, Christie can fight.
Besides President Trump, nobody got beat up by the leftist press more then that guy. Bridgegate, Bridgegate, Bridgegate was their cry from 2012 to 2016, why? Because they thought he would be the nominee in 2016 and crush their anointed Queen. That is why the democRATS and the leftist media went after him over a lane closure at a toll plaza. And the lane wasn’t even closed, it was shifted so other people could use it instead of being dedicated for special people. The special people complained, the special entitled people who believe they are immune to traffic in NYC.
Too bad people on here believe the leftist nonsense they sell.
