"FOX News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace reacts to Attorney General Bill Barr's interview with FNC's Bill Hemmer.
CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: As somebody who does interviews for a living, when you watch somebody else do interviews you always say, "Well gee, I would have asked or what about?" .... And what really comes across to me most of all is that for two years Donald Trump sat there and said, "I don't have an attorney general. I don't have somebody out there looking for an (sic) protecting my interests." He clearly has that now with Bill Barr. Not saying that Barr isn't right in everything he says. But he clearly is protecting this president and advocating his point of view on a lot of these issues. .
CHRIS WALLACE: It's why we have lawyers. They can sit there and parse language and cut it up into fine pieces. I think what critics would say is, you were being asked both by in the house by Charlie Crist and in the Senate by Chris van Hollen whether you knew the Mueller team was satisfied what you said. He took a very lawyerly and precise approach. It was only afterward we found out that, in fact, Mueller had called him the day after he issued his conclusions and said he wasn't happy with it. So look, you know, I'm not a lawyer, Bill Barr is a very accomplished lawyer. He can certainly make a case. Other lawyers who would say whether he lied or not he certainly was not forthcoming to either Crist or van Hollen when he answered their questions about what he knew about Mueller's opinion.

did Wallace say that about 0bama’s wingman, Erick “I’ve got the presidents back” Holder? I don’t remember him commenting on that or Loretta I met Bill on the tarmac Lynch?
It's not that Trump now (unfairly) has a personal attorney in AG Barr, but rather it's the fact that Sessions' surprise recusal left PDJT open to the worst that Rosenstein, Stzok, Page, Mueller, Weissman, et al. could concoct, all without someone doggedly reviewing and involving himself in possible (and now we've seen it as rampant) malfeasance of DOJ/FBI employees against PDJT.
CW is a clear partisan and beyond daft.
BINGO! He should have complained to the press; not to Barr.
Well, it’s about durn time Trump had a Wing-Man...
Lord knows someone needs to advocate his interests. Sure isnt going to be the GOPe.
Chris Wallace’s journey to the dark side is now complete.
Wallace and most of Fox News (except for 8-11 p.m. and morning show) are Ministry of Propaganda stooges.
Spreading the same narrative as the rest of the Ministry of Propaganda.
Fox is worthless. Pro-amnesty, pro-globalism, and anti-Trump. Run by the Murdoch family, which would love to see the elimination of national borders.
Not worth watching anymore.
Yep, one almost gets a sense Chrissy might have a tentacle in this failed coup attempt.
Makes you wonder as anyone with any common sense knows there’s nothing in that Mueller report that implicates Trump.
Hiding something Chrissy?
Chris Wallace has always been a socialist squish.
Chris Wallace has this turd (the busted coup attempt) he really likes and he’s polishing as hard as he can in hopes it won’t crumble the way turds always do.
Chris Wallace doesn't understand that because he's a dope.
What you are saying also occurred to me just this week. I have the Youtube video of a bunch of media creeps in the summer of 2016 discussing who the Pubbie Candidate might be. When Ann Coulter said, “Trump,” they laughed her to scorn. And they all sat there and guaranteed each other that Trump would NOT be the candidate, or if he was, he would NOT win. WHAT did they know about the activities of the FBI, CIA, DOJ creeps, et al, that made them all so SURE that the billionaire from NYC would NOT be elected? Since these creeps were all in bed with each other, how far DID the insider knowledge go concerning the plot against Trump?
I believe Bill Barr speaks the way he does because he knows a lot more than what is out in the public, and he knows he will be vindicated. At least, that is my hope.
Even if he does prosecute, the MSM will paint it as an act of political vengeance by a tyrannical Administration.
I also wonder if its a bit too late. If a Dem wins (Biden?), look for all charges to be immediately dropped. Maybe even pardons handed out.
...Not saying that Barr isn’t right in everything he says. But ...
Wallace and ALL other leftists are such BUT monkeys. Wallace also sounds somewhat JEALOUS that Hemmer got that interview, IMHO.
F off tool boy
WJC decided the Attorney Generals primary responsibility was to protect the president. I heard no complaints then. Eric Holder was the same. Loretta Lynchs job was to get Hillary Clinton elected. No complaints then either. Why does Trump get an entirely different set of rules?
