  1. Let’s be clear, he didn’t refuse to answer. His answer was “fuck you, you’re not the boss of me”.

    I’d love to say he’s wrong, but there is no evidence to that effect.

    • Hello Czippee. Hello and welcome to my Toy Box. I am trying to find more information on this. I have not found any reported news other than what I have seen already on twitter. Some say he refused to answer, and some say he said that congress what not his boss. I do agree with you that this White House seems able to break the law with impunity. Not sure what will happen now. The congress does have a lot of authority, but with out much way of enforcement. Have to see if the courts will back congress or tRump. Hugs

  2. Actually he answered this in a back door sort of way.

    Barr said that “there are no plans to submit the report to the White House for a privilege review.” Even though the attorney general said Trump has the right to assert privilege “over certain parts of the report,” Barr believes Trump “intends to defer to me” when it comes to the contents of the report.

    Barr said that “He is unaware of the white house recieving a copy of the report.”

    In other words Barr claims he has not shared the report with Trump or the white house at the time he answered these questions. So to make the above claim is a stretch of the truth since he already answered it with these answers.

    • Hello Michelle. I disagree. I watched the clips of the hearing where he was asked out right if the white house house had read or had access to the report. He danced around and refused to answer. The day before he had said clearly no, but the next day when asked the question again, he refused to say no. I was very clear due to how he was answering that the white house has seen the report. Hugs

      • The abovr quotes are pretty clear that he had no knowledge of anyone requesting it or recieving it. He also believes Trump would have a right to it if he asked but as far as Barr knows he has not made such a request. In otherwords “No mBarr has no knwoledge of the whitehouse or trump seeing an advanced copy or even a copy todate”.
        just have to read what was said it’s pretty clear answer.

        • So I have to ask, Michelle … do you actually believe that tRumpsky has not seen ANY of the report? The fact that he hasn’t “made such a request” doesn’t really mean anything. Individuals in power (especially attorneys) have some VERY clever ways of telling the truth without telling the truth.

          The fact is — Barr is a tool of tRumpsky. He’s going to use his “legal powers” to do whatever is necessary to protect him.

          • I did not comment on my belief. I commented that Barr has said he has no knowledge of trump requesting or seeing this report. could someone else have been asked without barr knowing? yup. But Barr answered that he had no knowledge of such a request.

          • If i already answered i’m not wasting my time reanswering the same question. They are trying to get him to say no trump never saw it and then they ahow him that maybe meuller had shown him or his attorneys a draft and then guess what it’s lying to congress. I would do the same to not get trapped. I already answered i;’m not rehashing it move on. That would be my reply. Course I wouldn’t be stupid enough to take a job from trump but that said the rudeness and bs he has faced there is rediculous. you win more friends with a jar full of honey than a sack full of shit, So far without cause he’s been treated to shot when Mueller and Rosenstien both say they are working with him and they believe he will ddo the right thing and release as much as can be under the law. Doesn’t sound like a trump butt boy to me it ssounds like he is taking the job seriously as it should be.

            What they media isn’t saying is all the reporting that he has given congress.
            reported the day he got it and that a summary was coming in 2-3 days
            reported after the weekend with a summary and that the dredacted version would be 1-2 weeks as he wis working with Rosenstien (his second in charge) and Mueller (the special counsel) to redact only what needed to be under the law.
            reported it would be delayed a week as they were still redacting carefully under direction from special counsel (Mueller)

            so faqr this is transparent. The people demanding a full unredacted know full well that would land Barr in jail and yet the media and others cry about the redaction when congress made the laws and if they truly want an unredacted public document they could pass a law tomorrow to have the old laws thrown out and make it legal.

            it’s all bs honestly. Obama praised Barr, prior to him working for trump. Biden praised him, Comey has too. all the way until he took this job under trump he was a great guy, honest, loyal, trust worthy (among the comments from leading democrats in the past) now suddenly he is evil, hitler lite, bad, horrible. No it’s trump and since he now has a job in that administration he is suddenly bad. Sorry don’t buy it and neither should you.

            https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/12/08/then-judiciary_chairman_sen_biden_praised_william_barr_as_a_heck_of_an_honorable_guy.html
            if need be I can find many more high ranking dems who before trump poraised barr as honorable, honest, decent, respectable
            tigers dont change strips….
            hugs

            I still like barr and feel he handled himself well. I hope he does open investigations on “spying” so when they turn up nothing we can shut nunes upo once and for all.

            • Hello Michelle. Understand Barr is in charge of the report. If the White House sees any of it Barr has to approve it. He is denying congress the right to see the full report even though they have the clearances and the right to see it. All other investigations of this type have been given to congress in the entirety including the grand jury information. Ken Star’s report was released to congress immediately and in four days to the public. What they are trying to do is find out if Barr gave any of the report to the White House. As he first said no, then when asked the question the next day refused to say no again, that means he did authorize the release to the white house. That is all this is about.

              First Mueller is not going over the material with Barr. His team is but Mueller refused to. Second the report was written with prepared summaries that the team wanted released and they were careful to not include classified information nor grand jury testimony. Barr refused to do this. Why? I think because the summaries look bad for tRump. Lastly Barr got this job because he wrote a 19 page unasked for essay saying the president shouldn’t be investigated, couldn’t obstruct justice, and basically gave a pass to everything tRump was accused of doing. When he got the job he started doing everything he could to protect tRump even to the extent of violating the law. He is assisting with the preventing of the tRump tax returns from being released by the IRS to congress even though the law clearly states “shall” not may or could. Yesterday he claimed the Obama white House was spying on tRump’s campaign. He knows the FBI was investigating possible criminal activities, not doing political spying. He also has said he wants to open several investigations in to Hillary Clinton including the debunked uranium one deal. He also has opened an investigation into the FBI investigators doing the investigation of the tRump allegations before it was turned over to Mueller. Yes he is tRump’s butt boy. Even people who worked with Barr say they can not believe how he has changed. He basically is turned the DOJ into a tRump’s political hit squad and he is now the presidents Roy Cohn.

              Your facts are off on what has been reported. Yes all of that was reported however the things he is redacting are not all required by law and before this the AG went to the court and asked to release the grand jury information. No one has ever redacted based on “might embarrass a third party”. Barr has refused to do so. I watched the question of him and Barr often refused to answer the questions, he was defiant and non-complaint. He made a four page summer of a 400 page report that was not accurate according to the people who wrote the report. Also Mueller knows the DOJ policy about not indicting a sitting president so he would leave any action up to congress, but Barr is preventing congress for getting the information. That is being a tRump toady.

              You are wrong about who can see an un-redacted version. The public can not. That is clear. But the gang of eight can, they hold the top clearances and Barr can ask the judge to release the grand jury information as has every other AG before.
              There are several committees where he can also release the report too with out being in jeopardy. The choice to block a report that they claim clears the president is weird and suspicious. Again every other special investigation was released to congress in its entirety. If they could do it then Barr can.

              I do not trust Barr. I do not want political retribution investigating in our country. What he and the White House is saying is “If you try to investigate the president or interfere with what he wants even if it is illegal then we will investigate you and make your life miserable”. That is third world banana republic shit. Hugs

              • I’m glad he will investigate the FBI and even the DOJ. If wrong doing was done those institutions need to be purged to maintain their integrity as unbiased and lawful. However if as I suspect there is nothing there it will shut up loud mouth nunes… maybe the rest of them too.

                And from CNN
                “Barr said he was working with Mueller to identify sensitive information that should be redacted — including grand jury evidence, classified material and information relevant to ongoing investigations — before he submits the report. He said the process was “going along very well” and that he would explain using a color-coded system why each redaction was made.”

                “working with mueller” my facts are fine friend

                • Hello Michelle. No it wont shut up Nunes or Fox or Jim Jordan or any of them. The fact is all that those things have been vetted, the start of the investigation is well known. It was signed off by a judge. The idea of investigating Clinton for something she had no control over was a scam when 9 Benghazi investigations were done and the Republicans not only found her not guilt of anything, they were preparing for a 10th one. That is the kind of political investigations we do not need to repeat. All of this is retribution. A get even ploy. Even Steve Bannon said tRump is going to be in full get even mode. Barr said during his testimony that he offered to let Mueller look over his summery and his reactions and Mueller refused. It is what he said during his testimony. As for the Mueller team, I think they are working with him because some of them expressed dissatisfaction with what was being redacted and the tone Barr is putting on the report. Hugs
