I hope he's working a plan.

I imagine he heard from the US Marshals that he wouldn’t be let in the building.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

He got the concession he wanted, instead of the Trump stooge - his chief assistant will take over.

Supposedly. I trust nobody in the White House.

Trump says he wasn't involved. Wasn't his "department". It was all Barr.

“ It was all Barr “

He’s an embarrassment. Time for dissbarrment.

Except that only the President had the authority to remove Bergman under these circumstances. So either Barr is lying, or Trump is lying, or Trump just signs whatever people put in front of him.

Not sure which is the scenario I hope for.

Doesn't this just seem like a continuum?

Ultimately, the guy that Trump hand-picked reverted to form.


After a while, he’ll probably tell us all what a horrible person Trump was.

Maybe after the election.

Trump fired him

Yes, and Barr acknowledged that to follow the law, he would need to allow Berman's deputy to act in his stead until the Senate confirms a replacement, which is currently in doubt.

But Berman was fired, and he had no choice about whether to leave. He did not quit - Barr made that clear.
