Trump's Justice Department Just Asked People to Submit Questions for AG Barr, and It Backfired Spectacularly

In November of 2018, President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, which led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump saw the recusal as disloyalty, and—after regularly attacking Sessions on Twitter—finally showed him the door.

Sessions was eventually replaced by current Attorney General William Barr, whose weaponization of the once-impartial Department of Justice to do Trump's bidding.

It was Barr's DOJ that helped bolster the absurd argument that the President can't even be investigated for a crime because he can't be convicted in office. Barr's DOJ intervened in the sentencing of Trump ally and convicted felon Roger Stone.

In response to the global pandemic that's caused a national health crisis in the United States, Barr has sought the power to indefinitely hold prisoners without trial.

The Attorney General is one of the Trump administration's most loyal—and most damaging—officials.

On Wednesday, the Department of Justice urged its Twitter followers to submit their questions for the Attorney General ahead of a May 1 question and answer session.

People happily obliged—but not in the way the Department had hoped.

Even Trump's supporters were dissatisfied with Barr's performance as Attorney General, and—like Trump—wanted to know when the Justice Department would be imprisoning and even executing the so-called enemies of the President.

What Trump has wrought.
