Attorney General William Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee following revelations that Special Counsel Robert Mueller expressed concern that Barr’s four page summary of Mueller’s 448 page report misrepresented the Special Counsel’s findings on allegations of obstruction by President Donald Trump.

One of the highlights of the lengthy hearing was Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) grilling Barr for prioritizing the President over the justice system as a whole.

Watch below:

Hirono didn’t hold back, saying to Barr:

“Mr. Barr, now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani or Kellyanne Conway or any of the other people who sacrificed their once decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office…Being Attorney General of the United States is a sacred trust. You have betrayed that trust, America deserves better. You should resign.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) cut Hirono off, accusing her of slandering the Attorney General.

While Senator Graham was salty, many Americans were in full agreement with Hirono.

And they were none too pleased with Graham.

Facts don’t care about your feelings.
