Attorney General Bill Barr is done messing around with the Democrats. The left wing is in disarray and has no idea what to do next.

Some Democrats want to impeach President Trump and lose in the Senate, if not lose in the House, during the process.

Others know that this course of action would sink their chances of beating President Trump in the next election to say nothing of the House and the Senate and prefer the cautious approach.

So off they go, with no clear goal, other than to create as many public spectacles as they can to try and damage the President politically.

Luckally, AG Barr sees through them all.

The Associated Press reported on Monday that Attorney General William Barr accused the Dems of trying to create a “public spectacle” by subpoenaing Special Counsel Mueller to testify before Congress about the Russia investigation.

In an interview with the AP , AG Barr stated that the Justice Department would support Robert Mueller if he decides that he “doesn’t want to subject himself” to congressional testimony. AG Barr also said the Justice Department would seek to block any attempt by Congress to subpoena members of the special counsel’s team.

There is no indication that Robert Mueller doesn’t want to appear before Congress on July 17. But he put lawmakers on notice that any testimony he gives won’t go beyond his 448-page report that was released back in April. At a news conference in May, Robert Mueller claimed that his team chose the words in the report carefully and that the work literally speaks for itself.

“I’m not sure what purpose is served by dragging him up there and trying to grill him,” AG Barr said. “I don’t think Mueller should be treated that way or subject himself to that, if he doesn’t want to.”

Robert Mueller no longer works for the Justice Department, but the department could attempt to limit his testimony about decisions he made during his time as a special counsel.

This Monday, AG Barr spoke to the AP in South Carolina, where he visited a prison to discuss the criminal justice reform that the President signed into law last year.

The Dems criticized AG Barr, clamming that he acts more like President Trump’s personal lawyer than the attorney general. Bill Barr enthusiastically embraced President Trump’s political agenda, cast Robert Mueller’s report as a vindication for the president and launched an investigation into the origins of the probe — something Trump has repeatedly said should happen.

AG Barr said the investigation is ongoing and claimed, from what he has seen so far, that it’s “essential to take a deeper look at how things unfolded.” Barr said he hasn’t received a satisfactory answer about why a counterintelligence investigation was opened on President Trump’s campaign, or whether there would have been a less drastic measure that could’ve been taken at the time.
