Did they just try to mute the sound or my phone doesn’t work?
Fake news and democrats hate a non-puppet AG. I love him. Trump 2020
Where's the rest CBS??????? Do you report the news or only the pieces your executives allow??

Bob Mueller publicly confessed he presumed president Trump guilty which is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. #InnocentUntilProvenGuilty

WHY WHY WHY are you giving this perjurer any of your airtime. He HAD his chance to speak ... under oath ... under compelling legal subpoena ... before The Congress of the United States of America; the body that enacts the laws that he, a civil service employee, is hired to enforce.
GET HIM OFF YOUR AIRTIME ... until HIS impeachment and firing for cause.

So how is it Ken Starr was able to find guilt with Bill Clinton. Ken Starr charged Bill Clinton with 11 counts. It is not true for Mueller to say that he could not make a determination. The only reason he couldn’t is because he never had any evidence, folks, because there never has been any evidence.
Barr feels no compunction about LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH.

SHAME ON YOU CBS. Stop hiding the full interview from the American people.

I love Barr because he is a true American Patriot. He loves this country and will put all his skills and knowledge to save our Constitution/country and stop this treason and overthrow our country.
As Barr knows or SHOULD know very well, by virtue of his being the head of the DOJ, Mueller couldn't have simply accused Trump of a crime without violating the Constitution. The Constitution (Article II, Section 4) says that the only way a sitting President can be removed from office is by impeachment and conviction by Congress. If Mueller formally accused Trump of a crime, even without indictment, the procedure according to the DOJ's own protocols are the following:

1. A complaint of a crime is filed.
2. An arrest warrant is issued.
3. Arrest is necessary so that the accused person can be sure to attend detention and preliminary hearings, and then, indictment by a grand jury, arraignment, trial, sentencing, appeal, etc.

If a sitting president is arrested and detained, by definition that is removing him from office, which violates the Constitution. That is why Mueller cannot simply accuse the President of a crime without formally indicting him, because formally accusing him of a crime will cause him to be arrested under the procedural guidelines of the DOJ.

William Barr is a True American Hero
Watching the libtard heads explode over this interview is priceless

The media, the Democrats and some Republicans want to establish a new legal standard: the accused is Guilty until Proven Innocent. Echoes of the darkest days of the French Revolution and the terror of the guillotine. The end of the Bill of Rights.

I had no idea that a prosecutors job entails the exoneration of people! Silly me, I thought that wasn't how the rule of law and evaluation of evidence works.

Barr is a political hack and should be removed from office. Political bias has no place in the judicial system. He is obviously spinning facts in an attempt to protect a crooked president.
Release the whole interview. What are you scared of?

Can you see how the Fake News media operated, they turned off the sound completely in certain part of the interview. WAKE UP AMERICA! We witness the bias of the News media outlets (the Fake News outlets) and we will hold them accountable. AG Barr is not concerned about what's people thinks and says, but the Laws and the institutions. Thanks God, we have an outstanding AG represent the American people. I believe AG Barr will bring back the dignity and respect for the men and women worked in the Department of Justice . God bless AG Barr and his family always.

I hope Meuller is disbared.

Odd: I can hear Jan Crawford, but the sound for Bill Barr is off.
