Crooked Hillary Wants Barr to Resign: “He is the President’s Defense Lawyer”
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed Attorney General William Barr last night and called for his resignation.
Speaking with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow last night, Clinton said Barr “auditioned” for the job as Attorney General and was hired to protect the president.
“I think he is doing the job he was hired to do. He auditioned for the job with his 19 page memo basically saying there is no such thing as obstruction of justice when it comes to a president,” she said.
“He was hired to make sure that was a reality,” Clinton continued. “He has behaved in that way. I think that the Democrats on the committee did a good job today exposing that. He is the presidents defense lawyer. He is not the Attorney General of the United States in the way that he has conducted himself.”
Clinton said the calls for Barr’s resignation make “perfect sense” because he is not fulfilling the duties of the office.
“He’s not going to resign, and at this point, I think that we know what we need to know about him. Bob Mueller has made that abundantly clear: that he has not represented accurately the context, the nature and the substance of the investigation.”
