Letter: Committee’s questioning of Barr was a chaotic fiasco

Posted

To the editor:

On Tuesday, July 28, William Barr, attorney general of the United States of America, was relentlessly questioned by Democrats on the House Judicial Committee for five hours.

Attorney General Barr, when trying to testify, was demeaned by his Democrat accuser's in various ways. A constant interrupting, for the purpose of stopping his testimony. And, when he tried to reply, was stopped by their statement … “I am reclaiming my time.” This would then not allow him his time to testify and give evidence. This was a fiasco and terrible for a law-abiding citizen to observe in our country.

Over the years America has fought for freedom, liberty and the pursuit of justice. On July 28, 2020, the Democrats took away William Barr's freedom … the freedom of speech.

What happened in these chambers was a disgrace. The rule of law was not upheld and the Honorable Attorney General Barr's freedom of speech was totally disregarded during this chaotic fiasco.

Those that vote Democrat are enablers to this disgusting behavior by their elected officials,  and should be ashamed of themselves.
