The Internet Is Bashing Barr After He Claimed It’s ‘Not A Crime’ For Trump To Obstruct Justice

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking member, questioned Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday whether Donald Trump telling his attorney to lie to special counsel Robert Mueller was considered obstruction of justice.

Barr simply answered that Trump’s actions were “not a crime.”

Attorney General William Barr insisted that it was “not a crime” to direct an aide to lie for him — and social media users were outraged.

Feinstein asked whether President Trump had obstructed justice by asking White House counsel Don McGahn to change his account of efforts to remove Mueller.

“Well, that’s not a crime,” Barr said.

“So you can, in this situation, instruct someone to lie?” Feinstein asked.

The internet decided to call out Barr after becoming angry with his response. Take a look at some of the responses below:
