The entire country has known from the moment that Attorney General Bill Barr released his heavily influenced 4-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation report that something was fishy. First and foremost, we knew that Mueller’s report was somewhere around 400 pages. It seemed nearly impossible that it could be summarized in a mere four.
It didn’t take long for members of the Special Counsel’s team to begin leaking the fact that Barr’s summary hardly lined up with the facts that were contained in Meuller’s report. Add that to the fact that Barr hand-picked the redactions that went into the 448-page report before they would release it to the public — which, by the way, was a lot of redactions — and still yet demanded that he hold a press conference before it was released.
Not to mention the fact that Bill Barr was punted to the top by none other than Donald Trump himself and has said from the very get-go that he doesn’t agree with an investigation being conducted against a sitting president.
To say the least, Barr’s intentions have been more than questionable throughout this whole ordeal. Which is why Congress moved to question him pretty quickly in the wake of the report’s conclusion and subsequent release. And question him they did. But as it turns out, Barr lied.
Barr didn’t just lie, he committed blatant, outright perjury against Congress.
Chris Van Hollen, who was a part of Barr’s questioning, posted to his Twitter this evening confirming the fact Bill Barr flagrantly violated his oath to the truth.
“On April 20th, I asked Barr, “Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion?” His answer was, “I don’t know whether Mueller supported my conclusion.”
We now know Mueller stated his concerns on March 27th, and that Barr totally misled me, the Congress, and the public. He must resign,” Hollen’s tweet read, and was accompanied by video footage as proof positive of Barr’s transgression.

Given this information, it is clear that Donald Trump’s entire administration works for Trump and Trump alone. Bill Barr should be forced out of his position as the Attorney General of this nation, and the rest of the lot should follow suit — our treasonous president included.
