MSNBC’s Chris Matthews blasted Attorney General Bill Barr today for assigning a U.S. attorney to oversee an investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation.
President Donald Trump today said he didn’t ask for Barr to do it, but as Matthews said, “There he goes doing just what the president wants, investigating the investigators.”
He spoke with Congressman Joaquin Castro, a Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, and said Barr is basically a “hitman” for the president:
“Congressman, it’s an embarrassment to have an Attorney general who looks like a Roy Cohn, a guy who will do anything to defend the president and now has become his hitman. Not only will he play defense, he’s out to destroy the government, the FBI, everything in order to cover the tracks of the president. What do you make of this guy and how can you stop Barr from doing what he’s out to do now, destroy the FBI?”
Castro said that Barr has been “a fixer” and protector for President Trump, adding that he thinks they’re opening the investigation to “chill anybody else from looking into anything else that the president does.”
