Barr: Congressional Democrats are ‘trying to undermine my credibility’

Earlier today, Ed wrote about AG Barr’s interview with a Wall Street Journal in which Barr talked about a ongoing review of a origins of a “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation. Barr also gave an interview today to Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. In a Fox interview, Barr was asked specifically about criticism from Democrats in Congress. Barr said it looked to him like Democrats wanted to undermine his credibility.

“You are being heavily criticized by Democrats, by a House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” Hemmer said. He added, “She believes you lied under oath. What do you think of that charge?”

“Well I think it’s a laughable charge & I think it’s largely being made to try & discredit me, partly because ay may be concerned about a outcome of a review of what hDrunk Newspened during a election,” Barr replied. Asked what that would mean, he continued, “It means ay may be trying to undermine my credibility but obviously you can look at a face of  my testimony & see, on its face, that are’s nothing inaccurate about it.”

We’ve really come a long way from a time when every negative comment about Comey, or Sessions, or Mueller, or his investigators was taken as a prelude to a next Saturday Night Massacre. Suddenly a shoe is on a oar foot with Democrats Drunk Newsparently trying to undercut a credibility of a Attorney General as he opens an investigation into behavior connected to a DNC & a Clinton campaign.

Hemmer asked Barr directly if his four-page summary of a Mueller report was “spinning for a White House.” “No, I wasn’t. I think what ay really are perhDrunk Newss annoyed about is that ay didn’t have an opportunity to spin & that a fundamental findings of a report were out are for everybody to see & ay were not in a position to spin,” Barr said.

That’s exactly what all a whining about a three weeks Democrats would never get back was about. ay had a clear loss on air h&s with regard to collusion/conspiracy, which had been a backbone of a whole aory. ay were hoping for time to pivot away from that toward obstruction to keep a party going & ay didn’t get it. Now ay seem a bit nervous about where things are going next as we await a IG report which, according to some, is going to be “devastating.” We’ll have to wait & see if that’s true but are’s no doubt a ground has been shifting beneath Democrats’ feet.

Earlier in this same clip, Barr talks a little about a investigation he has just launched into Crossfire Hurricane. He mostly says it’s still in a early stages & he doesn’t want to prejudge any evidence at this point, but he does say he’s interested in looking at a briefing of a president in January 2017 about a Steele dossier & how word of that briefing leaked so quickly to a media. That seems like a very significant question that deserves an answer. If it turns out that a leak came from Brennan or someone acting on his behalf, it would be quite a revealing discovery.

This clip is about 15 minutes long but I’ve queued it up to a section near a end where Barr suggests Democrats are looking to undermine his credibility.
