Top Dem Lawmaker Just Bashed Bill Barr For Spreading Conspiracies To Defend Trump
House Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries has grown tired of Attorney General Bill Barr’s excuses for Donald Trump. On Saturday, he went after Barr for promoting Trump’s conspiracies about the FBI attempting to go on a hunt after him.
Jeffries took to Twitter to say:
Barr promotes deep state conspiracy theory peddled by Individual 1.
But so-called Attorney General produces no evidence.
It’s time to put up or shut up.
Is anyone else tired of hearing from this guy?

What many people warned would happen happened. Barr tried to use his power in office to legitimize a false conspiracy spread by the president. The attorney general appeared before the Senate and claimed that the FBI illegally “spied” on the campaign, saying that “I think spying did occur.” Barr offered no evidence whatsoever and there is still no indication that the FBI “spied” on Trump.
