Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova absolutely annihilated a liberal host, when she suggested that AG Willam Barr is a liar.
The Hill reported that Joe diGenova, an informal adviser to President Trump, defended Attorney General William Barr during a Thursday appearance on Hill.TV, saying Barr is “one of the finest lawyers this country has ever produced.”
The former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia and staunch Trump backer made the remarks while being interviewed by hosts Buck Sexton and Krystal Ball, who asked if Barr might have lied in his comments about whether a sitting president can be indicted.
“I’m asking if Barr is a liar, is really the question,” Ball said, referencing Thursday’s press conference with Barr to discuss special counsel Robert Mueller‘s report.
“Don’t you dare suggest that Bill Barr is a liar,” diGenova said. “I’ve known him for 30 years. He’s one of the finest lawyers this country has ever produced.”
“There’s not one shred of evidence that anything he said — either the other day, or now, or today — was a lie,” diGenova added. “Don’t ever say that in front of me about Bill Barr. You have no evidence that he lied, and you know it.”
“What I’m telling you is that what he said today is inconsistent with what’s in the report,” Ball responded.
“That’s not a lie,” diGenova shot back.
“OK, fine,” Ball said.
“It’s not fine. You’re on national television calling the attorney general a liar,” diGenova said.
“I didn’t say that,” Ball responded.
“You suggested it very strongly,” diGenova said.
