Today, Attorney General William Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.
He re-affirmed what we already know to be true: President Trump did not collude with the Russian government.
As expected, Democrats’ theatrics were put on full display throughout the hearing as they attacked AG Barr and accused him of petty mishandling of the report.
Despite this, however, Barr remained calm and confident in delivering the truth behind the findings of the report.
Here are some of the top moments from the hearing…
At Barr hearing, Senator @LindseyGrahamSC reads FBI messages showing obvious bias against the President. “These are the very people that made the decision to open an investigation into the Trump campaign.”— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
In response to Democrat's disapproval of redacting the #MuellerReport, AG Bill Barr shares, "We made every effort to ensure that redactions were as limited as possible and the President played no role in deciding what was withheld. Just 8% of the report was redacted."— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
It is truly fascinating to see media and other partisans flailing today as they continue to lose control of the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory they perpetuated against the American people for years.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) May 1, 2019
AG Bill Barr: "In order for there to be obstruction of justice, there first must be an underlying a crime. No crime was committed by President Trump. Furthermore, during the investigation, Trump did not exert executive privilege over documents requested by Mr. Mueller."— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
At Barr hearing, Senator @JohnCornyn, "Why didn’t the Obama administration do more to prevent Russians from undermining American elections? Initial indications of interference were brought to his attention in 2014."— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC is absolutely right.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) May 1, 2019
We must get to the bottom of the Obama-Biden admin’s role in spying on @realDonaldTrump's campaign and their refusal to address Russian meddling.https://t.co/J5vHgxBZOX
Senator @HawleyMO at Barr hearing, "Want to know why this investigation really happened? Because unelected bureaucrats who had open disdain against President Trump tried to overturn a democratic election, That's the real crisis here."— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
Barr: "We have to stop using the criminal justice process as a political weapon."— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) May 1, 2019
Attorney General Bill Barr drives it home -— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
"How did we get to this point? The President was falsely accused of colluding with Russians - the evidence shows those allegations are false. To listen to some of the rhetoric you’d think the #MuellerReport had found the opposite."
Sen. Ted Cruz says Obama-Biden admin weaponized DOJ against Trump, “I believe the Department of Justice under the Obama administration was profoundly politicized.”— RNLA (@TheRepLawyer) May 1, 2019
Regardless of Democrats’ partisan antics, the fact remains: there is no evidence of collusion and the Obama-Biden administration failed to stop Russian meddling under their watch. Thank you to Bill Barr for your leadership as Attorney General.
