    Trump declassifying and giving AG Barr access to everything was the right thing to do. Barr need access in order to find out what truly happened regarding the events leading up to and even after the 2016 presidential election.

    I found Barr's interview with CBS very telling. He mentioned the dangers of allowing government, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, to play a role in politics, to intrude into politics, and affect elections. Most impressive are his ongoing investigations. I approve 110% his selection of investigators...U.S. Attorney John Huber, Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and U.S. Attorney John Durham. That tells me he's on the right track.



    Good points. Justice shouldn't be carried out in the dark. If the FBI has nothing to hide there should be no reason to hide the facts.

      Agree. I like how there's no leaking with any of the investigations. We aren't supposed to know the details while they are on-going. So refreshing after all the leaking the past few years.

      I also need to make one correction, U.S. Attorney John Huber was selected by former AG Jeff Sessions. AG Barr revealed during his CBS interview that there had been a transition in Huberí's responsibilities.

        Touche, I would think it safe to say that if Trump ordered the CIA files sealed, the Democrats and the never Trumpers would complain.
        It doesn't matter what he does

          Actually it does matter. If he would act like a president instead of a tin-pot dictator wannabe, we would all be better off.
          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            So, you are saying he should use his pen and phone, stop working with Congress, declare everything "executive privilege," work only by executive order, and smooze with celebrities on talk shows like his predecessor did...?

              I guess he should start supplying automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels, then the Democrats would say, "He is finally acting presidential "

                That remark is way out of line, is disingenuous, and has no merit.

                            Congratulations. Another thread derailed by personal off-topic posts spanning three pages involving several posters - some of whom can now enjoy a holiday. Eight posts removed. - ACG Staff
