‘You Can’t Trust Him’: Top Former DOJ Veterans Just Brutally Denounced Liar Will Barr

Attorney General William Barr has made a bad name for himself after tending to Donald Trump’s needs before the needs of the American people. On Friday, three Justice Department veterans denounced Barr for his misleading claims about the possibility of special counsel Robert Mueller testifying.

According to reports, Barr claimed on Thursday that “it’s Bob’s call whether he wants to testify,” referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case as the White House has asserted executive privilege over Mueller’s full report and the underlying evidence.

“So Barr’s claim (Thursday) morning that it was up to Mueller whether to testify was, at best, deeply misleading. Again,” said Matthew Miller, a former Justice Department spokesman.

Joyce White Vance, a former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, agreed the attorney general had ruined his credibility.

“I’m starting to think we can’t trust anything this Attorney General says,” she said.

Mimi Rocah, a longtime assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York and an MSNBC contributor like Miller and Vance, also denounced Barr for misleading the American public.

“I don’t think people understand how hard it is for someone like you (& me) to say something like that,” Rocah said.

Vance agreed, saying she had served many attorneys general in her decades in the Justice Department without speaking out so forcefully.

“Beyond hard, right?” Vance said. “I worked for every Attorney General starting with Thornburgh in 1991 and ending with Lynch in 2017.”
