Trump: Barr was "really, really solid and did a great job today."

NO LINK...Chris Matthews just mentioned this on MSNBC. It was a phone call between Trump and a Boston radio station.

While we were glued to the Barr shit show, DOJ filed a brief requesting takedown of the ACA

THREAD TITLE EDITED to more accurately reflect what happened, based on info you'll see below in my reply. Trump didn't file it, and nothing is "gone." If the brief were acted upon, that's what's being sought, but nothing is "gone."

Slavitt is "Former head of Medicare, Medicaid & ACA for Obama. Founded @usofcare & @townhallvntrs to make health care work for everyone." He's not a random Twitter user, but the way he characterized the brief is misleading...probably unintentionally.

I removed Slavitt's tweet for that reason...see the info below.

Transcript and video of Mazie Hirono's interaction with Barr, and Graham's response

Video and fuller transcript at the link. I would have posted the video in "Video & Multimedia," but it's not from YouTube, so I couldn't.


“From the beginning, you were addressing an audience of one, that person being Donald Trump,” Hirono said. “That’s why before the bombshell news of yesterday evening, eleven of my Senate colleagues and I called on the department of justice inspector general, and office of professional responsibility to investigate the way you have handled the Mueller report.”

“Being attorney general of the United States is a scared trust,” she went on. “You have betrayed that trust, America deserves better. You should resign.”

“With apologies to Adam Schiff, do you think all the things that President Trump did are okay? Are they what the president of the United States should be doing?” she asked. “Do you think it’s okay for a president to fire an FBI director, to stop him from investigating links between his campaign and Russia? It may not be a crime but do you think it’s okay?”


“Please, Mr. Attorney General,” Hirono said, as a resentful Barr tried to interject. “Give us some credit for knowing what the Hell is going on around here with you.”

Ted Cruz: "You answered the call to serve, knowing you'd be subjected to the Kavanaugh treatment"

TUNE IN NOW if you need to know why Cruz is the most hated person in the Senate.

Harris is grilling Barr like a pig at a luau, and his response is to throw Rosenstein under the bus

"I'm not the only decision maker here!!!"

Barr on Don Jr: "Apparently he was interested in seeing what this Russian woman had"

Booker brought up the Trump campaign "seeking to benefit" from Russian involvement.

ACTED confused. "Seeking to benefit?"

Booker told him about Don Jr.


And when asked about Manafort sharing polling data, Barr responded "Shared with WHO???"

"People who sacrificed their once decent reputations for the liar and grifter in the Oval Office"

Aaron Rupar
WOW --
*goes in* on Barr, says "the American people know you are no different from Rudy Giuliani or Kellyanne Conway, or any of the other people who sacrificed their once decent reputations for the liar and grifter who sits in the Oval Office."

Graham to Hirono: "You've SSSSSSSSSSSSSLANDERED this man from top to BOTTOM...

...and if you want more of this, you're NOT GONNA GET IT unless you ask him some QUESTIONS!"

Hirono: "You LIED. You KNEW you lied. And now WE know."

And, amazingly, Barr's facial expression never changes. He's just sitting there like "SO?"

Barr: "We have to stop using the Justice Department as a political weapon."

He's getting really agitated.

Asked if he would recuse himself from any of the ongoing investigations spun off from the Mueller report, he immediately snapped back "NO!"
