Fox News’ Bill Hemmer interviewed Attorney General Bill Barr. It is his first interview since joining the Trump administration.
AG Barr “clearly believes he is now the target of the Democratic lead house and, Martha, he expected that when he took the job”.
He has asked many questions and feels explanations are inadequate and that they “don’t hang together”.
A KEY EXCHANGE BETWEEN HEMMER AND BARR:
BARR: “I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions and I’ve found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together, in a sense I have more questions today than when I first started.”
HEMMER: “What doesn’t hang together?”
BARR: “Some of the explanations of what occurred.”
HEMMER: “Why does that matter?”
BARR: “People have to find out what the government was doing during that period. If we’re worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale.”
