Scarborough on Barr: I Personally Believe Dems Should Start Looking into Impeachment

‘He has committed perjury’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: "So, Mike, I love that Nancy Pelosi just told the truth right there, didn’t say, 'Well, we’ve had some people there. Well, you know...' She said he lied. He did lie. He lied to Congress. We’ve got at least one solid example of it that any of us would be thrown in jail — "
BRZEZINSKI: "Correct."
SCARBOROUGH: " — for perjury. We’d all be in jail. He may have lied to Chris Van Hollen. It just depends on how a grand jury would look at that, but we would still at least all be sent to a grand jury for saying what he said to Chris Van Hollen. On the matter of the utmost public importance, the undermining of the Justice Department’s purpose for selecting a Special Counsel in the words of Robert Mueller himself. So, he has committed perjury. And I personally believe they should start looking into impeachment — an impeachment inquiry if the rule of law means anything at all. But I’m watching these pathetic hacks on the right, some of whom used to have respectable careers, they’ve turned themselves into nothing more than Trump enablers talking about how what Barr did was correct. You look at him lying before Congress and match up what these pathetic hacks are saying about Barr’s lying and what they said about Bill Clinton’s lying in 1998 and 1999, and suddenly they’re sounding an awful lot like the man who said, 'It depends on what your meaning of 'is' is.' They are engaging in legalistic semantic games, the likes of which William F. Buckley attacked Bill Clinton supporters for doing in 1998."
