I am outraged by this attempt to completely exonerate me! https://t.co/bb5uZcR9h1

The weirdest thing about Trump Era journalism is that even though the administration’s habit of constantly lying is widely reported, each *new* statement is treated as presumptively true until debunked.

…after the obviously premature victory laps by Trump, the GG left and certain media moralizers that consider all of Twitter deranged and unclean, to say nothing of the NY Post enemies-list bracket, which led to the usual death threats, etc.

I'll be *shocked* if Nadler et al don't have Barr on the phone for the summaries included in the Mueller document.
They were written to be publicly releasable, meaning no grand jury info and no classified.
No excuses, Barr. Cough 'em up.

Barr solicited his position as Trump’s latest coverup guy — he could hardly wait to upgrade his obituary from “GOP loyalist who leaked salacious details of the Lewinsky record”. So he’s probably achieved a status bump, which I hope he’ll be very happy to remember…
I imagine William Barr will get the worst sleep of his life tonight.
He’s now wholly implicated as corruptly obstructing justice.
If I’m him, I’m thinking I can either cut and run – let the summaries fly and abandon obstructing full release – or go all-in on full cover-up.
