Just to add this: I am writing to Attorney General Barr almost every day and I am English, not American. Dear Attorney General, Sorry, Here I am again! I am a little confused as to why Roger Stone is being sentenced and what for. Everyone is saying that this was a Deep State kangaroo court, that no crime was committed, that the Jury was primarily made up of biased individuals who were determined to find Mr Stone guilty by any and every means. Indeed, we see that the person in charge of the jury was tweeting all manner of messages which showed complete bias against Stone. So the prosecution team were totally corrupt, and most of the jury were as well. This would seem to indicate that the judge was corrupt as well. While I understand that you don't want the President commenting publicly on the case, he is entitled to his opinion and therefore should be able to say what he thinks when he sees corruption and wrong doing. The biased jury should have been removed. The trial should now be a miss trial. Apparently, documents exist that show this very clearly. Like the Impeachment trial, this too was nothing less than an absolute sham. Again, why is Stone being sentenced after this blatant miscarriage of justice? Where exactly is Justice in today's America? This is what we expect to see in Communist China, or North Korea, NOT in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

Typical of the Washington Post they deleted my message. News flash for you Communist traitors. Everyone in America and around the world knows what liars you are. You never tell the truth about the Clintons, Biden, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Schumer and the corrupt, lying Democrat cabal. You can run, but you can’t hide. The truth is out. The Marxist traitors are going to jail. Barr and his team are coming for all of you!

Barr will probably resign, and Trump will appoint Rod Blagojevich to the post instead. The whole entire Trump corruption drama is getting way too predictable.

Fast Forward to 2/19/20 Trump says Barr has a lot of integrity. Translation Trump tells Barr what to do COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA & THE AMERICAN PEOPLE = Barr jumping = INTEGRITY. I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!!

Yet this obtuse worm, Barr, continues to obstruct justice, bootlick Trump, and undermine and overrule the judiciary system he is in charge of! Worst AG in American history!

This is why capitalism/democracy does not work, because at some time (sic - right here and now) the penultimate toady sycophant will be in charge of justice, pulling partisan strings for his master. At all other times it is at work but not so obvious, it's usually the smallest most insignificant of the crowd that gets the weight shackled to themselves, now it seems so obvious what will be the outcome, absolutely zero I'm sure?

YOU NEED TO CEASE WITH ALL THE BULLSHIT ABOUT MR.BARR AND TRUMPS TWEETS AND TRYING TO CONFUSE YOURSELVES WITH THE PEOPLE THAT THE WASHINGTON RAG SPEWS OUT. EVIL DIRECTS YOU INTO THINKING PROPAGANDA THIS ENVY FOR THE PRESIDENT, SO QUIT BLOWING IT UP. THE DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT TO ADMIT THAT TRUMPS IS ALL UP IN IT FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS TO REALLY DRAIN THE SWAMP ON THIS TERM AND INDICT THOSE RESPONSIBLE AND TO BE PUT IN HANDCUFF AND PRISON SENTENCES FOR CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT TREASON AND NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH SLURS OF SLANDER. NONE OF YOU DEMOCRATS HAVE A SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN HELL. SHIFF, NADLER, AND PELOSI, HAVE RUINED THE CREDIBILITY OF THE DEMOCRACTS WITH NEGATIVE SLURS. AMERICA IS NOT TO TRUST ANY OF THOSE SNEEK-THIEVES DECEIVERS LOSERS...... JUDGE ROBERTS IS THE ONLY REASONABLE DEM OUT THERE. THE REST ARE CRIMINAL INTENT.

JJ Black - they believe in the system because it's what keeps their hold on corporate power and their sway over the peoples of this world, without this real truth would prevail and where would they end up, strung up at the nearest lampposts surely?

Barr is not pushing back. It's a ruse. Just stop trying to convince me that Barr isn't exactly what I see. One of those who's willing to do whatever, no matter the law. PAY ATTENTION!

Devious democrats didn't care about obama's wingman Eric Holder being held in contempt of Congress, or Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in secret. The hypocrisy is nauseating.

Bullshit this is a plot from Barr and trump to minimize the backlash , ain’t no way trump is going to let Barr say “I won’t be bullied by the president “ without attacking him , he’s like a child he can’t hear any criticism what so ever , Barr is his little butt boy .

Trump telling people Barr is covering up for him, makes it impossible for Barr to get away with it. Can't wait for the handout of orange jumpsuits next year.

Barr hasn't been doing his job from the start . Mueller investigation did not clear Trump . Time to connect the dots and lock up all the crooks.

Bill Barr, save that trick for Satan. The judiciary branch should impeach and, remove William Barr. Barr, America is not stupid. We know you are doing Trump's bidding to cheat, again.

The myth of the NATO alliance is dispelled. Russia in Syria attacked the Turkish systems of volley fire "T-122 Sakarya." NATO refused to come to Turkey's aid for fear of Russia. Jens Stoltenberg realized that NATO is no longer there, each for itself

As far as I know, there has been no blowback from Trump on this interview. That alone should tell you all you need to know.

Trump doesn't make it impossible for Barr to do his job. Barr's lack of clarity as to his role as the U.S. Attorney General rather than Trump's toady and boot licker make it impossible for him to do his job. If Barr had any integrity or competence, Trump would be irrelevant to his work.

Must suck to know that people know Trump appointees always lie.
