[Ed. – It’s been a long two years to come away with nothing.]
Folks, this was the moment we’ve been waiting over two years for and it is glorious. On Thursday morning ahead of the Mueller report’s release and after a press conference by Attorney General Bill Barr, CNN and it’s nine-person panel suffered a meltdown of biblical proportions, lashing out like Adam Schiff campaign workers at Barr’s “excessive and suspicious” “political commercial” offering “gratuitous statements”for the President and against the press.
Co-host Jake Tapper spoke before the panel of liberal analysts and journalists, setting the table by wondering “why did the attorney general do this” since “[w]e were told it was just to be transparent…but it actually was what the Democrats feared it would be, which was the attorney general getting out there and getting his narrative, his take on it as vigorously as possible.”
Chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was the first to offer comments fit for a straight-jacket [sic], asserting that Barr put on “an extraordinary political commercial for the President” that “was a discussion of the sympathy and the difficulty and the challenge that the President faced, and how not withstanding all of that, the White House cooperated” even though Trump was never interviewed in-person.
