    Some of the most colorful descriptions of the violence facing police officers at Lafayette Square were clumsily spliced out of the middle of Barr's answers to questions. Key details on violent riots near the White House were removed from the broadcast of an interview of Attorney General William Barr on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday. Anchor Margaret Brennan repeatedly described protests as “peaceful” and the clearing of protesters to set up a stronger perimeter as unnecessarily rushed, contentions Barr strongly denied.Left out of the interview that aired on CBS on Sunday morning was Barr’s detailed accounting of much of...

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr rebuked the false narrative perpetuated by legacy media Sunday that protestors cleared near the White House last week were gathering in peaceful demonstrations. On Monday, protestors were dispersed by park police by pepper balls as the city neared at 7 p.m. curfew by Barr’s orders moments before President Donald Trump walked across the street to observe the damage done to the historic St. John’s Church.“They were not peaceful protestors,” Barr said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “That’s one of the big lies that the media is⁠—seems to be perpetuating at this point.”CBS’ Margaret Brennan pushed...

    The move comes after President Donald Trump promised to help families, who accuse Saudi Arabia of complicity in the attacks. Barr says he cannot even explain why the material must stay secret without putting national security at risk. Months after President Donald Trump promised to open FBI files to help families of the 9/11 victims in a civil lawsuit against the Saudi government, the Justice Department has doubled down on its claim that the information is a state secret. In a series of filings just before a midnight court deadline on Monday, the attorney general, William Barr; the acting director...

    SNIP Sessions, who was the first and for a long time only senator to endorse Trump in 2016, left the Senate to become Trumps attorney general in February 2017. He had held the Senate seat for 20 years. But his relationship with the president quickly turned sour after he recused himself from a decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump after it was revealed that Sessions did not disclose a meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Nevertheless, Sessions said Tuesday he doesnt have any regrets. No, you dont regret things like that, Sessions said when asked...

    The New York Times admitted on Thursday that the Obama administration deployed multiple spies against the Trump campaign in 2016, confirming recent comments by Attorney General William Barr that 'spying did occur' during the campaign. Following months of angry claims by journalists and Democratic operatives that the Obama administration never spied on Donald Trumps 2016 presidential campaign, The New York Times admitted Thursday that multiple overseas intelligence assets were deployed against associates of the Republican nominee. It is not the first time the Times has revealed widespread spying operations against the campaign. In addition to noting that long-time informant Stefan...

    Attorney General William Barr has agreed to testify before the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee at the end of March after rebuffing requests to appear before the panel for the past year. The deal came as Democrats, including Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, of Manhattan, had raised alarm this week over Barrs interceding in the sentencing recommendation for former Trump political operative Roger Stone, who was convicted by special prosecutors in Washington, DC, last year and was facing up to nine years behind bars. We are writing to confirm your agreement to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on March 31, 2020,...

    Attorney General William Barr Every paragraph in the nearly 10,000-word New Yorker article has significant problems. Taken together, it is just one long string of innuendos insinuating that William Barr is evil. Some days it seems as if Attorney General William Barr is one of very few adults in Washington, D.C. The highly respected attorney is serving his second tour at the head of the Department of Justice. The first was during the George H.W. Bush administration. A brilliant legal mind with a candid and no-nonsense attitude, Barr is able to withstand pressure from the media and other members of...

    Albuquerque, NM ~ Tuesday, November 12, 2019 Remarks as Prepared for Delivery Thank you to my federal partners in law enforcement and, especially, to our state and local law enforcement partners for joining me this afternoon. I dont think its a secret to anyone here that New Mexico, generally and Albuquerque, specifically is experiencing a violent crime crisis. Unlike many cities in the United States that have seen violent crimes rates fall over the past few years, violent crime rates in Albuquerque remain stubbornly high. In the months ahead, the federal government is going to be stepping up...

    The state's top prosecutor believes that the go-to social media site for accused Tree of Life shooter Robert Bowers is on its last legs financially, according to a statement issued early Thursday further explaining that office's decision to close a civil probe that followed the synagogue massacre. The statement from the office of Attorney General Josh Shapiro indicates that the decision to close the probe followed indications that Pennsylvania-based Gab.com "had exhausted its already-raised money, and was no longer going to be serviced by the payment processors, cutting off all public funding to support the business." Spokeswoman Jacklin Rhoads went...

    Daniel Cameron, a black Kentucky Republican running for attorney general, shared that he was the target of a liberal lawyer's racial slur this past week. Yesterday, a liberal attorney said I should stop eating "coon flakes" in a @CourierJournal interview. I am a proud lifelong Republican, part of a diverse @KYGOP ticket, and yes I support @realDonaldTrump. It's time to stop telling black Americans what we're allowed to believe Daniel Cameron (@djaycameron) August 7, 2019 In an interview with Fox News's Brian Kilmeade Thursday night, Cameron questioned whether the Democrats can really claim to be the party of "tolerance," considering...

    An anonymous, but wise, Wyoming rancher recently summarized special counsel Robert Mueller's report in clear middle-America language: "We know that old boy didn't actually steal any horses, but he's obviously guilty of trying to avoid being hanged for it." The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), wants a hangin' no matter what. We know they're serious because they had former Nixon counselor John Dean testify, which had everyone in America under age 60 searching Google. The parallels to Watergate apparently are uncanny in the minds of some. Next up: Maybe Robert DeNiro, since his resemblance to Bob...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday night signed legislation granting drivers licenses to illegal immigrants shortly after the controversial measure passed the state Senate. Cuomos action came despite throwing supporters a last-minute curveball by asking the states top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns threatening to veto it if he didnt like her assessment. You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people, Cuomo said on WAMC radio. California passed a law, and they are now in litigation. But Underwoods boss, Attorney General Tish...

    The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee is sounding the alarm about the new powers that President Donald Trump has granted to Attorney General William Barr. Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, in a letter obtained by The Associated Press, said he fears Trump is giving Barr the right to selectively declassify certain information for purposes of political gain. He asked that the leaders of the nations spy agencies contact lawmakers if Barrs investigation threatens their work. Trump last week granted Barr the power to review and potentially release classified information as he analyzes the origins of the FBIs Russia...

    President Donald Trumps orders to declassify secret documents pertaining to the FBIs investigation into his campaign in 2016, came after weeks of battles between Attorney General William Barr and senior officials within the bureau, CIA and other agencies, sources with knowledge told SaraACarter.com. Despite the presidents order giving Barr authority over the declassification of the documents related to the bureaus investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, it wont be met without a fight. And theres a reason why. This isnt just about Trump. Its about nearly a decade of abuse inside the intelligence community and bureau regarding foreign-intelligence-collection authority....

    Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence agent who compiled the hoax dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, refuses to cooperate with the Department of Justices investigation into the origins of the Obama administrations spying on then-candidate Trumps 2016 presidential campaign, according to Reuters. A Reuters source close to Steeles private investigation outfit, Orbis Business Intelligence, said the ex-spy has chosen not to answer questions from Connecticuts U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was recently appointed by Attorney General William Barr to examine the probes origins. Reports of Steeles unwillingness to cooperate with the Durham comes days after President...
