Joe Scarborough: Attorney General Barr ‘Really Should Be Disbarred’
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has said Attorney General William Barr should be disbarred. The Morning Joe host was responding to the publication of the Justice Department’s Inspector General’s report, which debunked conspiracy theories pushed by President Donald Trump and Barr himself.
“Well, and, Willie [Geist], the outrageousness [sic] of it all, again, all of Donald Trump’s lies, all of his conspiracy theories laid bare,” Scarborough said.
“And as Gene [Robinson] said, the conspiracy theories about the FISA warrant and Carter Page and that starting the investigation can be disproven by a three-second look at a timeline. The same thing with the Steele Dossier. It doesn’t match up. The timeline, it just doesn’t match up.”
“But in this case of Durham, I think — I mean, we know — We know Barr will do anything for Donald Trump. He’s his Roy Cohn. He’s his hack. We know that. He’s already committed perjury before Congress. I’m surprised somebody hasn’t moved to disbar him, because he really should be disbarred.”
“And we’ll see if Durham should be disbarred as well. It’s happened before, Bill Clinton got disbarred for perjury and we’ll see if these men continue doing what they do. Perhaps they’ll be disbarred too and perhaps justice will — they will be met with the justice they deserve.”
Scarborough went on to call John Durham a ‘PR hack’ for rushing out a statement in response to the Inspector General’s report.
“I mean, this is so sleazy. It’s so humiliating for this man,” Scarborough said.
