The stunning hypocrisy of Bill Barr
The attorney general delivered a controversial speech Wednesday.
Bill Barr criticized Justice Dept. prosecutors for using “novel” arguments to charge people they disliked for political reasons. Hours before, news broke that he had asked his office to explore charging rioters with the rarely invoked crime of sedition.
My fuller take on Barr's speech — he portrayed DOJ as filled with zealous prosecutors who use dubious legal theories and badly need “supervision” — by him. (This critique is only applied in practice to prosecutors investigating Trump or his friends)
