On Sunday night, a new interview with Attorney General Bill Barr aired on Mark Levin's "Life, Liberty, and Levin." The interview covered an array of topics including recent public unrest and voting issues. Levin's interview comes only a few weeks after Attorney General Barr endured hours of unfettered questioning by House Democrats at a Judiciary hearing.

Most notably, Attorney General Barr discussed the rise of Antifa and the Democratic party's radical shift to the left in recent years during his interview with Levin:
Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to "a new form of urban guerrilla warfare."
"The way the guerrilla...hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean...what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity," he explained. "They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That's where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence."
The group's radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party's far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. The left has "pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded" America and made a "secular religion" out of seeking "complete political victory," he argued.
Attorney General Barr also noted the alarming abuse of government power that was used during the Russiagate scandal.
Barr says all the various ways in which powers of law enforcement and intel were abused by government officials against their Russiagate political appointees is the “doomsday scenario” civil liberty supporters feared.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) August 10, 2020
The interview also echoed concerns that Attorney General Barr has expressed in the past about those on the left seeking to implement universal vote-by-mail:
As expected, the mainstream media attacked the Attorney General following the interview. However, the facts are on Barr's side: the breakdown of law and order continues in Democrat-run cities, the unfounded campaign against General Flynn continues, and states like New York continue to have serious issues with all-mail elections.
