Running cover for the BOSS! AG Barr acts like Trump lawyer not America’s. Political stooge. Just like he lied about the Mueller report.

"The reporter filed a report that said that Lindsey Graham and John McCain and Maria Yovanovitch were up to their eyeballs in a conspiracy with Ukraine that involved sending American aid money back to Americans to benefit them personally, and that one of the reasons that there hasn’t been this full-court press to help defend Trump and Ukraine is because it isn’t just Biden that’s gotten involved in some shady dealings there. It’s a whole lot of people, Republicans and Democrats alike."

Isn't interesting that the IG gave both parties lines; his conclusion allows the Dems a line to defend themselves with their looney Press. The details always matter and I look forward in reading the full report.
