J. Rubin: William Barr, Trump Toady; also quote from L. Tribe

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/10/william-barr-trump-toady/

Constitutional lawyer Laurence H. Tribe tells me, “Attorney General Barr is surely among the ‘civil Officers of the United States’ subject to removal pursuant to the impeachment clause, Art. II, §4, and I don’t doubt based on his March 24 letter, his subsequent shifting and shifty pronouncements, and his disgraceful testimony yesterday and today (including his wild and unsubstantiated accusations against the Obama Justice Department) that, whatever highly redacted document he releases as Mueller’s report next week, Barr has been gravely abusing the powers of his office, possibly (although not, in my view, certainly) to the degree of committing ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’”

7. Also there was his clenched jaw.

That is a VERY nervous man. May his conscience lead him right to the vaults where those returns are stored and then straight to Richard Neal. ( I can always dream.)

10. Took till 2:33 to half-see his hands, and he's got it bad. It might be neurological, but I hope...

...it's sheer terror.

3. This whole act from Barr does not pass the smell test.

First he volunteers with a 19-page letter literally betting tRump to appointment him as AG. Then he does the "summary" of the Mueller Report, wherein he deems tRump to be not guilty of anything. Lastly, he claimed spying by the Obama FBI.

What the hell??? This does not compute. Someone, IMO, has something on him to make him do all of this -- because he is not one bit subtle about what he is doing. Maybe one of those three things might be a "maybe" something is not quite right...but all three???

5. Could he possibly be disbarred?

He seems to have crossed many lines yesterday.

9. The moron wanted another Roy Cohn and he was disbarred

before he died of AIDS. If Barr follows along the path he is going I don't see why not.

"Cohn was disbarred by the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court for unethical conduct in 1986, and died five weeks later from AIDS-related complications."

"He died on August 2, 1986, in Bethesda, Maryland, of complications from AIDS, at the age of 59. According to Roger Stone, Cohn's "absolute goal was to die completely broke and owing millions to the IRS. He succeeded in that."
