William Barr did a magnificent interview with CBS.
Listen to the panic in this piece.\
But Barr’s long, detailed interview with Jan Crawford suggests the rot goes much deeper than a simple mania for untrammeled Executive power. Barr has drunk deep from the Fox News worldview of Trumpian paranoia.
I like how he includes my favorite piece of anti-Trump paranoia.
Trump asked Russia on camera to hack his opponent’s emails, and they carried out a hacking attempt that day.
By including that line, the whole column can be ignored.
If you think Russian was waiting for orders from Trump on national television, you can a loose hold on reality.
