Attorney General William Barr has revealed his intention for handling the Mueller report and the aftermaths is primarily rooted in his desire to defend the executive power and not as a means of supporting President Donald Trump.
In his conversation with The Wall Street Journal, the Attorney General reiterated his opinion that the rules were being changed continuously by the Congress to hurt the President which he feels is damaging to the presidency in the long run. Attorney General William Barr was in El Salvador last week to boost public support for the President’s policy toward MS-13, a violent street gang.
During the interview, he praised the presidency for always providing leadership and direction at all points. He also added that weakening the presidency and making it the Congress’ errand boy will lead to a weaker, divided nation.
Democrats in the Congress have accused AG William Barr and President Donald Trump of obstructing the Congress from carrying out its duties. This charge was reiterated when the President directed Don McGahn, a former White House Counsel to flout a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee. The House Judiciary Committee already voted to hold Barr Williams in contempt for defying a warrant to release an unedited and unredacted version of the Mueller report.
Barr Williams regarded the Congress vote as part of the usual political circus usually in play and claimed not to be surprised. He took the vote of contempt against him in stride and even approached House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a Capitol Hill event last week by asking if she brought her handcuffs along to arrest him.
