Schumer: Barr Not Acting Like Attorney General

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blasted William Barr, saying he “is acting more like the president’s campaign spokesman than the independent attorney general he’s supposed to be.”

Schumer’s comments came in a Thursday tweet.

He wrote: “Whether it’s defending the administration’s dangerous health care lawsuit or perpetuating conspiracy theories, Mr. Barr is acting more like the president’s campaign spokesman than the independent attorney general he’s supposed to be.”

Schumer’s comments came after Barr declared to a Senate panel on Wednesday that he believes “spying did occur” on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

In addition, he is expected to release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report next week.

And in a speech on the Senate floor, Schumer added: “In the face of serious questions surrounding the release of the Mueller report, the attorney general did exactly what President Trump wanted.

“He dodged questions, peddled the conspiracy theory and, like the president, lobbed baseless accusations.

“It’s clear for Mr. Barr the title he holds is far less important than the boss he serves.”

A video of Schumer’s speech was attached to his tweet on Barr.
