    A House Democrat who’s a frequent critic of the Trump administration submitted a resolution Tuesday calling for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. House Resolution 1032, filed by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, accuses the nation’s top law enforcement officer of using his job to pursue political goals. “Today, I introduced #HRes1032, which would authorize an impeachment inquiry into Attorney General Barr,” Cohen wrote on Twitter. “He has politicized the DOJ, undermined the rule of law, abused his power, obstructed justice & violated the first amendment. He is not fit to be Attorney General.”

    WASHINGTON — Sidney Powell, a firebrand lawyer whose pugnacious Fox News appearances had earned her numerous private phone conversations with President Trump, sent a letter last year to Attorney General William P. Barr about her soon-to-be new client, Michael T. Flynn. Asking for “utmost confidentiality,” Ms. Powell told Mr. Barr that the case against Mr. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser who had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I., smacked of “corruption of our beloved government institutions for what appears to be political purposes.” She asked the attorney general to appoint an outsider to review the case, confident...

    In an interview with Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep, Attorney General William Barr denied that the Justice Department is continually upholding the interest of the president, dismissed concerns about the firing of federal prosecutor Geoffrey Berman and said he does not believe an election conducted mainly by mail can be secure. Steve Inskeep: Thank you again for taking the time. I'm appreciative to have this opportunity. Attorney General William Barr: Thank you. I want to note that in the last few days, there have been three acts of yours that have made the news, sometimes not for the first time. The...

    A top House Republican urged the chairman of the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee to use Attorney General William Barr’s planned July testimony as a chance to carry out oversight on the “weaponization” of the Obama Justice Department to target now-President Trump. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio sent a four-page letter to Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York on Friday, telling him he should take advantage of Barr’s appearance to look into the alleged misdeeds conducted during the Trump-Russia investigation. “The Attorney General’s appearance is also an opportunity for the Committee to conduct oversight of the Obama-Biden Administration’s weaponization of the...

    The U.S. Department of Justice is overseeing around 500 investigations into violent riots that have occurred nationwide in the last few weeks, Attorney General William Barr has said. Barr was a guest on an episode of the “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast, hosted by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and The Daily Wire's Michael Knowles, and posted on YouTube Thursday. When Knowles asked, “How do we restore order?” Barr explained that efforts were being launched at both the state and federal level, with the latter stepping up its efforts. “The federal government is best positioned to address this kind of violence...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday called Attorney General William P. Barr “contemptible” and “a mess” but stopped short of backing calls from some Democrats for his impeachment, suggesting the best way to remove him is to elect Joe Biden president. “One hundred and thirty-one days from now, we will have the solution to many problems, one of them being Barr,” Pelosi said during a Washington Post Live interview. Her comments came a day after a high-profile House Judiciary Committee hearing at which Democrats accused Barr of politicizing the Justice Department, including by intervening in criminal cases to the...

    Attorney General William Barr is bringing increasing clarity to the focus of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the conduct of the Russia collusion investigators.

Barr also has suggested what events in the timeline are emerging as important in the 2016-17 effort to find dirt on President Trump and his campaign and transition team.

    Bill Barr Tears the Seamless Garment Executing child murderers does not make Bill Barr any less pro-life. Catholics, says Attorney General William Barr, “understand that only by transforming ourselves can we transform the world beyond ourselves.”Saccharine? Perhaps. But this remark from Barr’s now-infamous Notre Dame speech summarizes the faith of a man whose public Catholicism has for decades emphasized both sexual morality and personal charity. Discipline and virtue — words that read like dog whistles to modernists and other subversives in the Catholic hierarchy — are central to Barr’s faith. To Barr, Christ’s “yoke is easy” precisely because “taking...

We’ve seen a pattern of the president opposing, of Barr corruptly impeding all these investigations. So, this is just more of the same.”
