Mueller report

on May 13, 2017 in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Benjamin Wittes calls William Barr’s handling of the Mueller report “catastrophic.”

The Lowest Barr

Robert Mueller’s reasoning for deciding not to decide whether President Trump obstructed justice is certainly debatable, but good lord the reasoning Attorney General William Barr used to overrule Mueller and decide the issue. It’s extraordinary.

Republican Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham speaks at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, USA, 27 September 2018. US President Donald J. Trump's nominee to be a US Supreme Court associate justice Brett Kavanaugh is in a tumultuous confirmation process as multiple women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
