Barr "can't recall." Uh huh.

Interesting new detail in this latest from NYT on Trump-Barr tension. Admin seems to be beta testing a defense of Barr “could not recall” Trump asking him for presser. Kinda soft, given Trump’s forceful denial, & seems to address a direct Trump-to-Barr ask, which was not reported

1. I heard on NPR that the ask was done through surrogates

so technically Trump did not ask Barr personally. Technically.🙄

2. To be fair, it would be an easy thing to forget.

I don't remember anyone asking me to hold a press conference, for example.

4. Reagan's greatest legacy to the GOP

Don’t lie in the record, that is what cost Nixon his job. Just keep repeating “I don’t recall; I can’t remember, etc”

6. Of course in Reagan's case, it was probably true.

7. I'm pretty sure Trump didn't read that book...

His greatest legacy is if you lie all the time on the record no-one can keep up with the bullshit and all truth is seen as relative.
