Title: Barr under fire as Dems vow to investigate AG, call for impeachment

So ... this is perhaps the reason for his appearance on national television.  Too bad he didn't do his job and start to drain the swamp when he had a chance.  If the DEMS are successful, Barr will be the first AG ever to be impeached -- they will proceed just as they did with Trump with no oversight and no real basis for impeachment -- the DEM House will vote for impeachment, and move to the Senate for a vote to remove.

Barr under fire as Dems vow to investigate AG, call for impeachment

Less than two weeks after President Trump was acquitted by the Senate, Democrats have their sights set on Attorney General Bill Barr as a new target for investigations and even impeachment, following the AG's apparent move to overrule prosecutors' recommended sentence for former Trump adviser Roger Stone.

From members of Congress to members of the media, political operatives to law professors, Barr is under intense scrutiny from the left for alleged "misuse of the criminal justice system" involving not only the Stone case, but the removal in January of U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu and accepting Ukraine-related information from Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

He's also walking a fine line with the president himself, who pushed back against Barr's highly publicized comments Thursday that Trump had never asked him to intervene in a criminal case.........

Ditto.  The rats barely impeached President Trump.  They don't have enough animosity towards Barr to impeach him.

Trump and Barr are playing rope-a-dope with Dems on Stone sentencing (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/02/trump_and_barr_are_playing_ropeadope_with_dems_on_stone_sentencing.html)

They want to impeach Barr before he can indict them.

The rat congress will probably demand "documents" that they know damned well Barr can't legally hand over... and then they'll use that "obstruction of congress" BS again.

Perhaps not, but it would provide a nice alternate narrative when/if Barr's DOJ begins issuing subpoenas re: the Russia Collusion scam.
