Fox Anchor Blasts Bill Barr: He Seemed To Be Acting As Trump’s Defense Lawyer Instead Of Attorney General

Law & Crime reports:

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Attorney General William Barr sounded like a counselor to the president during his press conference Thursday ahead of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“The Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president, rather than the attorney general, talking about his motives, his emotions,” Wallace told “America’s Newsroom” anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith.

“Really, as I say, making a case for the president,” he added. Barr offered a staunch defense of President Trump on Thursday morning during a press conference, where he previewed the report’s findings and explained why they led him to conclude that Trump had not obstructed justice.
