Okay, first, check out GOP Senator Chuck Grassley’s (IA) words for a reporter…
“Here’s where we are.
The Democrats and you folks in the media are not concerned about the report. I think you’re concerned about the results weren’t what you expected. And I think we’re finding out that everybody was sold a bunch of snake oil, and now the jig is up!”
Now, watch Grassley drop those words to an overzealous reporter then walk away like he owns the place…
NO HE DIDN’T! 😲 😮 😯

LIKE A BOSS.
Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more.
Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past.
During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump.
Barr: “I’m not sure what your basis is for saying I’m being generous to the President.”
A reporter then brings up his use of the word “unprecedented.”
“Is there another precedent for it,” Barr asks.
“No,” the reporter answers.
“OK so unprecedented is an accurate description.” pic.twitter.com/5Mkso4BOCR

Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham shut down Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) during her line of questioning to Attorney General Bill Barr.
She didn’t have much of a comeback.
Deep down, Mazie knows Lindsey is right.
From Daily Wire:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) interrupted and shut down Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) after she “slandered” Attorney General Bill Barr during his Wednesday hearing.
HIRONO: “Do you think it’s okay for a president to offer pardons to people who don’t testify against him, to threaten the family of someone who does? Is that okay?”
BARR: “When did he offer a pardon to somebody?”
HIRONO: “I think you know what I’m talking about. Please, Mr. Attorney General. Give us some credit for knowing what the hell’s going on around here.”
GRAHAM: “Not really. To this line of questioning. Listen, you slandered this man!”
HIRONO: “Mr. Chairman, I am done!”
GRAHAM: “You slandered this man from top to bottom!” Graham continued. “If you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you want to ask some questions, you can.”
HIRONO: “You certainly have your opinion. And I have mine.”
