Michael Bennet: William Barr ‘Ought to Resign,’ ‘He’s Behaved Like Trump’s Criminal Defense Lawyer Instead’ of the AG

‘In just this week, the kinds of things that Trump has gotten away with or his attorney general has gotten away with, if Barack Obama had done one of them, they’d be calling for his head’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BENNET: “I’m sorry. Barr. He’s behaved like Trump’s criminal defense lawyer instead of the attorney general of the United States. And, by the way, well, in just this week the kinds of things that Trump has gotten away with or his attorney general has gotten away with, if Barack Obama had done one of them, they’d be calling for his head. The fact they’re willing to do that doesn’t mean we should go down that rat hole. We should see whether or not — pressure will build for the Mueller testimony. Pressure will build to get the Mueller report out and I think we should do all we can to beat those drums and make sure he does have to come testify to Congress and tell us what he found and explain why bill Barr’s summary of the work that he did, a guy who is admired, at least in the old days was admired by everybody, you know, no matter what party they were the work he did over two years that demonstrates conclusively that he could not clear the president of committing the crime of — of obstruction. You know, he said I can’t indict I president so I’m not going to
— I’m not going to — I’m not going to say that he committed a crime.”
TODD: “Yeah.”
BENNET: “But based on the evidence that I’ve seen, I can’t clear him for this crime. That means that Congress has to do its oversight.”
