Democrats are furious at Attorney General Bill Barr. They should be. Mr. Barr is trying to tear the deep state up by its roots and expose the delusions of moral superiority that have infected so many in the intelligence and federal law enforcement communities.
A review of Mr. Barr’s tenure shows a laundry list of actions dismantling the trojan horse that Democrats and Never Trump Republicans have set up inside the Department of Justice and the intelligence communities.
Mr. Barr named U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation, which should yield results this summer. He signed off on the dismissal of the tainted Michael Flynn investigation and prosecution, which was recently upheld by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Barr also deemed the initial sentence recommendation for Roger Stone to be excessive. Democrats and the media pounced and cried foul, but the judge in the case agreed that the initial recommendation was “greater than necessary.”
