“‘I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump, and I thought it was damaging for the presidency over the long haul,’ Mr. Barr said.”

What’s damaging for the presidency—and the country—over the long, and short, haul is:

👉 Donald J. Trump.
Bill Barr, under fire for appearing to protect Trump, tells WSJ’s @sgurman he’s protecting the presidency, not the president. “I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump.” wsj.com/articles/barr-…

This is exactly what taking a political side and not a legal one is.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
How can you live with a person who props him up & lies for him? No, I don’t care that it’s “just her job.” There are other jobs.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Bill Cohen Barr. Trump finally has his lackey.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
And all the people like Barr who give Trump cover.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
What rules were changed to hurt Trump?
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr’s client is the Republican Party in their pursuit of retaining power at all costs.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
“History will teach us…those men who have overturned the liberties of republics the greatest number have begun their career, by paying an obsequious court to the people, commencing Demagogues and ending Tyrants.”
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
George, you've convinced us, but what about your wife, Kellyann? Nothing squares here.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Question is why is Congress scared to show their power to protect the legislative office???
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
He appears to be protecting Trump, not the presidency. That's because he is protecting Trump, not the presidency.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
I thought this was the job of the White House Counsel and not that of the DOJ?
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Saying it’s not about Trump but it’s about the office of the president, Barf , (Barr) is saying he’s advocating for an imperial presidency. Throwing out the basic fundamental pillar of our democracy which is three equal branches of government and checks and balances. Worserer.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
The ones trying to change the rules are Trump and Barr. John Dean, Nixon’s General Counsel, testified under oath. It was his testimony, supported by copious contemporaneous notes, that doomed Nixon (along with the tapes).
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Bill Bob lies as prolifically as Donald. No wonder they admire each other.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
If Barr was really worried about the Presidency he’d make sure the incompetent currently holding the position was assisted out the door.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
We went from blatant obstruction to a blatant coverup.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Also damaging: An Attorney General who rules by his feels.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Like the way they didn't let Obama choose a SCOTUS justice to replace Scalia, that kind of thing?
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Fuck Bill Barr. He will go down in history as a most treasonous louse. The Founders of our country would have tarred and feathered the sonofabitch.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Being the Attorney General of the United States isn’t about what you “felt.” What a load of horse pucky!
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
The history of how 242 years of democracy ended in the United States, will be a lightly-edited compilation of the severely worded and highly-concerned tweets of the elite.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
How were the “rules being changed?” Sounds like spin
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Congratulations, the damage is done, William Barr.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
And the people who work for him, and enable him? Like your wife?
 
- AG Barr “‘I 𝙛𝙚𝙡𝙩 the rules were being changed to hurt Trump".
- He "𝗙𝗘𝗟𝗧" rules being changed w/no evidence. WTF?
- Our US AG 𝗙𝗘𝗘𝗟𝗦 rules are changing?
- Our top cop & justice expert is now enforcing what he "𝗙𝗘𝗘𝗟𝗦" & not our country's laws & legal precedents.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
The rules aren't being changed. The law is being broken! #DisbarBarr
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Rules that have existed since the Constitution.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
How can he protect something that doesn't exist? His presidency is a joke and an embarrassment nationwide. Tweet how you feel and think about his presidency? And please, don't reply to me because I'm not here for likes or numbers. Im here for change truth, justice and peace.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Excuse me? Who is changing the rules? 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Well to me Trump is the one hurting the presidency. Protecting him is not going to help
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Does he mean like the rules of Judge confirmations were changed with Merrick Garland?
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Memo to Barr: you job is to protect the laws of this country, not to protect this president.
 
 
- What "rules were being changed to hurt Trump"?
- Answer, none.
- No rules were changed & Barr knows this.
- This is an anti-Democracy Republican cover-up, simple.
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
If THE president commits crimes, we must persue...THE presidency itself does not commit crimes. Barr is a criminal as is trump.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Yes... And I think of our children and what kind of world they'll be growing up in... Lawless for the wealthy... Misery for everyday folk... sounds like ancient times... But even Rome eventually fell
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Someone should read Barr his work-contract and inform him that he works for the People, not this goddamn 'president'.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Once this administration is out of office #DerangedDonald #DonTheCon will need a new “fixer;” a new Roy Cohn. #WilliamBarr is interviewing for that job just as he did to become AG. Money talks; honor walks.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is either more ignorant or more corrupt than we thought. The rules weren't changed, people with morals were just trying to enforce them.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
If Barr was protecting the presidency he would have read the report before exonerating the President. The report indicates a likelihood of cooperation with Russia and lots of obstruction of justice. Mitt Romney needs to read the report out loud on the floor
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
TRUMP has damaged the RULE OF LAW!
 
What rules were being changed?
A general statement intended to just muddy the swamp even more.
It's a #BarrCoverUp of the #BarrCoverUp.
These wackos are obstructing the investigations into obstruction of Justice.
If every incidence would get 1yr in prison, Trump would get 20yrs
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
What Roy Cohn ur Barr meant was he thinks he has to protect THIS president the president who gave him a job after his 19 page audition. Hell don't care if he damages the country over the long haul, that's NOT my concern and I will tell anyone who wants to listen, but only on Fox!
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Anyone asked what rules were changed?
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
and those who enable and defend him.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Bill Barr is no hero. Not even a little bit.
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
and his Gary Cohn, Bill Barr.

In reply to @gtconway3d
The rules were being changed? Trump has survived impeachable behavior and scandals weekly, nonstop. The rules HAVE changed, and no more so than with an attorney general who lies to protect a president from openly criminal behavior.

Give up the money your wife gets by working with him George

In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is unfit for office.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Cirque du Soleil level contortions.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
...AND his minions, scoundrels, fellow liars, and cohorts. Like Barr.
 
If you have to secretly conceal & bend rules to go after Trump then it’s not just the presidency that suffers. It emboldens people to do the same in their own workplaces to go after people they don’t like, are politically incorrect or have opposite views. But Conway doesn’t care.
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is a proponent of the UNITARY EXECUTIVE THEORY, so he's really angling for big government overreach, something that we true conservatives abhor. Kavanaugh is another big govt (NOT conservative) enabler.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
What rules does he think are being changed? That is a crazy statement. It’s like he knows nothing about the law or history. Absolutely bonkers
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is trying to hold back the tide with a thin piece of Swiss cheese.
 
 
William Barr is lying..full stop!
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
"Protecting the presidency" is the new gaslighting bullsh-t.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
No, the rules were being applied and that naturally hurt Trump because he's lawless.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
I was wonder if Barr has figured out that Trump is crazy, and if not, how the hell can he miss it? It's really hard to believe that partisan politics along could cause his horrible judgement.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
⬆️ Bill #Barr feeling entitled to rewrite the constitution all on his own.

“Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.” — Justin Amash pic.twitter.com/x3e3Fey6dJ

Three letters: OMG!!! Our country is in more danger than ever before because our citizens are fighting each other! 😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is NOT acting on behalf of the American people but instead only for Trump. He’s cooked his own goose and will be decimated in the court of public opinion.
 
In reply to @SpeakerPelosi
@SpeakerPelosi has done nothing about Barr. There’s a ling list of Pelosi stalls now. Dems are disgusted with her stubbornness.
 
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr is simply a porcine LIAR operating under situational understanding of the law, morals, ethics!
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
And an Attorney General who thinks his job is to help Trump behave like a gangster statesman.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
I love you, George Conway! But what's the deal with your wife??
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Where was Barr during the M Garland affair- did not the senate steamroll over the presidential power of appointment? Oh, right, that was “different” - that would have demonstrated genuine (non-partisan) concern. 🙄
 
 
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
I believe this world is experiencing the moral and ethical equivalent of the plague. Except people don't die, they just lose all their morals and ethics. It may even go down as the world's largest social plague since the last world war, and it will lead to the next.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
That's not YOUR job #Barr. Your job is to uphold the Rule of Law and the Constitution.
 
 
 
Barr can NOT recount one rule change that hurts @POTUS who runs ovr rules like big truck ovr speed bump. Barr sees lawlessness & looks for cover @GOP @foxnewspolitics @SenateDems @HouseDemocrats
@MSNBC @CNN @StephenAtHome @jimmyfallon @funder @SenWarren @SenKamalaHarris @JoeBiden
 
 
In reply to @TheJusticeDept
@TheJusticeDept AGBarr sir you are not protecting the Presidency at all just Trump and it quite sad. Look at what he has done. He LIES TO US 24/7!! Is that acceptable to you or the @gop? No to us. Not to us.
 
This is terrifying. The Justice Department should be enforcing the law not obstructing an equal branch of government! He should be impeached and removed from office masked on this statement alone!
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr should resign. At this point he is only trying to protect himself.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
DJT is damaging for the presidency.
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
What a bullshit rationilization by Barr? Remember when Nixon said to David Frost "if the President does it then it can't be illegal"? #ImpeachBarr
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
Barr lied, lies then lies more. Must be trying to catch up with the liar-in-chief. 😀😀
 
 
Democracy is a rule we should protect. Barr blew it. His reputation goes with it.
 
Nixon: Are you fucking kidding me?!
 
In reply to @gtconway3d
What “rules”? Congress made no new “rules”? Instead of being a hero in his own mind claiming he’s “fighting” to save “the presidency” as though Trump is under attack instead of on the attack Barr should be exposed and made to explain what non-existent “rules” he’s referring to.
