In an exclusive interview, Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that President Donald Trump "has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case” but should stop tweeting about the Justice Department because his tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job.” Barr’s comments are a rare break with a president who the attorney general has aligned himself with and fiercely defended. But it also puts Barr in line with many of Trump’s supporters on Capitol Hill who say they support the president but wish he’d cut back on his tweets.

Hmmm, Going to have to disagree with the "impossible' characterization. This tweet thing might be new to Barr, but Trump is accomplishing a tremendous amount and tweeting may very well be a part of that strategy. Perhaps Barr should come up with some new strategies of his own.

I'll go with Barr on this one. If indictments are forthcoming, the last thing you need is a jury possibly compromised by a random Trump tweet.

While President Trump should not be tweeting regarding ongoing criminal matters, and while Attorney General Barr is right on the tweets regarding ongoing prosecutions being managed by the DOJ, it is obvious that ABC is trying to make a controversial mountain out of a molehill. Anyway you look at the genesis of all this, it appears that Roger Stone is the victim of a targeted criminal prosecution with a tainted jury and does not deserve, with no past criminal record, to be thrown in a federal prison for up to nine years.

Consider all the recent events. The Stone fiasco. Nadler’s going ballistic and calling Barr to appear before his absurd committee. This was an excellent move on Barr’s part.

FTA: ‘’ “I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody ... whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.” And right there he blasts the Democrats, too, but ABC News seems to have missed that.

Mr. Barr and Wray, do your job and Trump would not have to tweet. By the way, Mr. Barr, Trump is POTUS and has the right to speak, right to an attorney, right to know the name and cross examine his accusers, right not to be tried by double jeopardy in the EDNY and the Federal Courts, attorney client privilege of not having his personal attorney's office raided. If I hire someone to paint, I expect to see some paint on the walls, but I don't see anything, and for years, with Mr. Barr and Wray. If there is nothing by Dec, I hope Trump fires both of you. Why aren't you embarrassed by the Stone sentence, Mr Barr? That was on your watch. Why did you recommend Jessie Liu, who you knew, was not prosecuting left wing wrong doing. That was also on your watch, Mr. Barr. I don't give a whit about your claims of integrity, sir. All I care about is results, and I have seen nothing. Please quit whining on tv, quit running about the country and giving speeches, and telling our President to shut up, when you and Wray have not done your job. In short, sir, both you and Wray, get off your petards and do your job.

I'll agree with Barr that Trump should be mindful of what he's tweeting about, but then again, his tweets generate enormous focus on particular issues. That the Democrats, in particular, don't like it illustrates he's being very effective. Believe Barr would prefer not to have the chatter from the Democrats, which he also highlighted as noted by #9's post.

Thank you #10. I believe Trump only one out there (sad to say nobody else of any stature) showing appropriate righteous anger that murderers, rapists, illegal drug runners get off easier many times than Stone did. Trump is afraid like the rest of us that in the end, Barr and Durham may not do much. Or, if we ate fortunate, Trump and Barr just giving the press something to do.

I think Trump is being very shrewd here. He has learned from the Flynn fiasco to support the people that work for him. (Let's face it, the Dem holdovers went after anyone who works for the President. That has to stop.) Barr would have stepped in to call out the prosecutorial hangovers from the Mueller/Obama/Clinton cabal to undue the proposed ridiculous sentence after the rigged trial and Stalinist arrest of Stone. Trump has effectively insulated Barr from the Dems and the media (sorry for the redundancy), as Trump has the political capital to do so (unlike he was able to do regarding Flynn). Trump has directed the criticism to himself and away from Barr by speaking out against the injustice that was about to happen. This is fun. The winning continues...

I keep hearing and reading that Barr is doing his job. He was confirmed 1 year ago. Where is the proof that he is doing his job. Indictments - none. Insane prosecutions stopped- none. Resignations of crooked deep staters - none. If my record was that devoid of results I would have been fired 6 months ago.

I am not ready to condemn Barr just yet. He did assign Durham to investigate the Russiagate coup. That's much more than we could get Sessions to do. If Durham does not come out with several indictments, I will be fit to be tied, but I am willing to wait a bit longer. As far as the tweeting goes, Barr may have a point about ongoing criminal cases, but I love the President's tweets.

#26, I don't know what JD is, but the Department of Justice is the "DOJ." Barr needs to be able to go about his business, such as reigning in the Mueller prosecuting attorney holdovers who were trying to recommend 7-9 years for Stone's sentence. Then President Trump decided to weigh in, making it appear to the world that Barr was reacting solely to President Trump's tweets, and getting Barr dragged up to Nadler's committee on March 31 to have his time wasted and risking the possibility of an embarrassing comment. The President would have done better to have called Barr privately, to ask whether the Stone deal was appropriate, then dropped the issue, rather than tweeting up a storm over it. I'm with Barr on this one.

For years, Mitt Romney had a reputation as a flip-flopper, an opportunist, a politician who would tailor his beliefs to fit whichever group he was trying to please. Running for office in deep-blue Massachusetts in 1994 and 2002, he pronounced himself strongly pro-choice. Running for the Republican presidential nomination in pro-life Iowa and South Carolina, he became just as strongly pro-life. As governor of Massachusetts, he produced a universal healthcare program that prefigured Obamacare. Appealing to GOP voters deeply opposed to Obama, Romney renounced his signature accomplishment.

From early in our nation’s history, America’s intellectuals have mostly looked down on their own country and yearned for it to be like someplace else–someplace more sophisticated, and more in tune with “modern” intellectual currents, whatever they might be at the moment. That is a long history, which I will skip over. In our own time, American intellectuals have claimed that Soviet Russia, Germany and Japan were harbingers of the future that the U.S. needed to imitate. In each case, the point was that we had to shed our archaic freedoms and enter the brave new world of central planning under the control–benign, of course!–of intellectuals and bureaucrats.

1975 was an exciting time to be at Boston University’s School of Public Communication. There we were, about 30 students seeking a Master’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism. All of us thought our quest was noble, that we would become purveyors of truth, skilled fact-finders and truth-tellers in the Watergate tradition.
