Trump's AG pick was top cop during the federal siege and killing of Randy Weaver's wife and son.
The “disadvantaged” that Barr spent the most time helping was an FBI agent who slayed an Idaho mother holding her baby in 1992. Barr spent two weeks organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced… in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit,” he told the committee.
That charitable work (for an FBI agent who already had a federally-paid law firm defending him) helped tamp down one of the biggest scandals during Barr’s time as Attorney General from 1991 to early 1993. Barr was responsible for both the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, two federal agencies whose misconduct at Ruby Ridge “helped to weaken the bond of trust that must exist between ordinary Americans and our law enforcement agencies,” according to a 1995 Senate Judiciary Committee report.

Well, if we cannot put a politician in jail for breaking the laws, then we should vett the politicians better before electing them. Only good, honest, people should apply. Problem is no moral honest people want to apply for a job full of deceivers. Lawyers should not be able to be politicians, they make laws that benefit them in their trade too often.

This must be close to the maximum achievable heights of insanity possible. Unless of course Barr is just trolling the dems and republicans so he can nail their asses.
