Posted on 12/24/2019 8:07:45 AM PST by Maceman
Attorney General William Barr's defense of President Donald Trump amid impeachment is raising questions about potential conflicts of interest as legal experts accuse the Justice Department chief of ignoring his responsibility as the nation's top prosecutor.
"This is a really strange situation with Barr, who has so many conflicts and is up to his eyeballs in all of the corruption surrounding Trump," attorney Nick Akerman told Newsweek. Akerman served an assistant special prosecutor in the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon.
The attorney general plays no official role in impeachment, but that hasn't stopped Barr from coming to Trump's defense on multiple occasions. The Justice Department's top official often protected the Trump administration throughout the inquiry and went so far as to suggest that Democrats are "trivializing" impeachment by using it as a "political tool."
Michael J. Stern, a former federal prosecutor, asserted that Barr's loyalty to the White House is a "perversion" of his job as attorney general. "There is an inherent conflict in Barr's designated role as the chief law enforcement officer of this country and his efforts to protect the man who gave him his job. It is unfortunate that Bill Barr never misses an opportunity to place his thumb on the scales of justice in favor of Donald Trump. That's not how it is supposed to be," Stern told Newsweek.

Well Im sure Barr is a legal expert too and has a different opinion.
The Rats and their media whores are trying to preemptively discredit the coming Durham indictments.
My legal experts can beat up your legal experts.
While democrats have their foot on the scales.
They accuse others of what is actually true of themselves.
They always try to get first movers advantage.
No specification of actual corrupt actions in his accusations. Just invective.
I see Barr and Durham are over the target.
That really can be quite a subjective term.
I wonder if “97% of legal experts agree”. :)
This smells of desperation. What a “fun” year 2020 is looking to be.
“”””I see Barr and Durham are over the target.”””
The rats are really trying to scurry now.

“There is an inherent conflict in Barr’s designated role as the chief law enforcement officer of this country and his efforts to protect the man who gave him his job.”
Both of these guys are projecting. AG Barr is not protecting POTUS, he is trying to protect the Republic from the socialist, anti-American deep state that these people are attacking POTUS with... Just my $.02
Once upon a time Newsweek published a respectable magazine worthy of subscribing. It’s disheartening to see how far it’s fallen today to the level of political pornography.
That really can be quite a subjective term.”””””””
In addition to staying at a Holiday Inn Express on multiple occasions, I have watched the movie My Cousin Vinny about a hundred times.
If you need a legal expert, I am your man.
“My legal experts can beat up your legal experts.”
