Skip to comments.HERE WE GO: Dem Senators Seek Docs on Trump’s Alleged Request For Bill Barr to Hold Press Conf
Posted on 11/09/2019 7:53:56 PM PST by bitt
The Democrats believe that Trump, who is the president of the executive branch, is not allowed to discuss anything with the US Attorney General without their permission.
Senate Democrats are now seeking documents over an alleged request by Trump for US Attorney General Bill Barr to hold a press conference to clear him of any wrongdoing with Ukraine.
The Washington Post earlier this week reported that President Trump asked Bill Barr to hold a presser clearing him of wrongdoing and affirm that no laws were broken during his July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Bill Barr was asked to respond to their request for records within five business days.
Both Trump and Barr deny the Washington Post story about the presser.
The Hill reported:
Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said Trumps request raises serious concerns about the presidents perception of the Justice Department as a partisan political instrument and his willingness to use the power of federal law enforcement in pursuit of his own objectives.
We submit this FOIA request in order to obtain communications, documents, and other information related to the presidents reported request that you hold a news conference to clear him of wrongdoing during his call with the Ukrainian president, they added.
President Trump went on a tweetstorm earlier this week calling the degenerate Washington Post fake news for reporting that he asked Bill Barr to hold a news conference.

If they've BOTH denied it, then I can say with 5,000% certainty that it never happened. No way in hell would either one of them go out on a limb like this if there was anything remotely resembling a conversation about this subject between them.
Doesn’t matter if they’ve denied it, documentation *will* be generated. Doesn’t matter if it will be fake documentation. Why are people still surprised the DEMs are acting this way?
Hi Bill! Could you please update the public on what youre doing? Ok thanks. Trigger mad max and Schifftzhead.
This is the trademark of a lawyer who is an incompetent loser. You NEVER submit a request for information based on a "report" in the media ... because you look like a jackass when the report turns out to be Fake News.
They may as well have submitted a FOIA request to get a copy of the White House cable TV bill with the Gorilla Channel listed on it.
This is beyond absurd.
Where are the R Senators asking for EVERY call and request that the Usurper ever made?
To be fair, the Pubbie senators never had the heavy artillery of the ENTIRE Media behind them when the Usurper was usurpin'.
Drawing out another leaker?
This is a blatant attempt by one of the legislative branches of government to diminish and neutralize the executive branch of government. Nothing less. The implications of these actions are immense. Anyone who believes in our system of government, and who honors our Constitution, should be very alarmed.
Thanks to Jeff Sessions
He allowed the offensive while prohibiting an Investigation of the Deep State.
It all goes back to Jeffrey
And what would be wrong if they did discuss it ? Barr--not yet fully aware of all the facts, none-the-less wisely knew it would weaken his office to look like a schill for the Pres. and refused. Had DJT knowingly forced Barr to lie it could be another matter.
Washington com post...
Where’s Lincoln when we need him?
My God ,are all DemocRATS insane, Obama and his AG’s, Holder and Lynch were in meetings all the time. Pure RAT B.S.
Well by democrat standards then the CIA controlled WP has more credibility than the President or the DOJ.
Barr should speak up...loudly.
In bad English -
You got that right!
Oh, there may be some smoke and mirrors for the docile left wing brainwashed dependency constituents, but this is nothing less than an “ALL IN” effort to utterly destroy our Constitutional representative government, and replace it with absolute tyranny, with the global socialists being the thug totalitarians.
They want total ownership control of ALL levers of economy and resources, and they want it now!
If Team Trump/Barr and liberty loving conservatives cannot bring justice and a halt to all of this highly illegal (and really treasonous) activity, we will have formally lost any way of determining our representation, or impacting law.
And they will indefinitely determine who rules us, and the law they want to subject us with.
In this case, if not stopped here and now, these lawless thugs then ascend to supremacy over the Constitution, and become the authority over all of our laws!
Liberty would die over night.
We were on the very precipice of this with the obamanation and HRC.
So, if Trump is not stopped, they get exposed and hopefully justice is brought you them.
They have no choice but to get rid of Trump by any means possible.
This is a real battle, with out liberty being truly threatened by what will be real tyranny.
