DAMN! Barr tells Trump to shut up and stop tweeting.


“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr told ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas.


“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody ... whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”

4. Barr isn't breaking from Donnie. It's all a ruse

He is still doing DT's bidding. Barr is just acting like he's appalled at the president's behavior to save face at the DOJ. He's always been more interested in serving DT than our country.

Looks like Dobbs didn't get the memo.

5. And you know this how?

I think Barr is right and Trump would do well to listen to him.....but he probably won't.

8. Barr and Trump

disagree on form, that's nothing new. However, Barr still accepts who's the boss and who defines the priorities while doing his job within the letter of the law. Which is what Barr is supposed to be doing. Trump won't always get what he wants because the law won't always allow it but Trump is ok with that as part of Barr's job is to help keep the administration between the lines. Trump's job is to keep pushing his agenda while staying between those lines. Which is why neither will have a problem with these statements because their disagreement on form doesn't risk going outside the lines.
