WATCH: Val Demings Believes Barr and Trump Likely “In Cahoots”

Appearing on CNN with Erin Burnett, Impeachment Manager Rep. Val Demings says she wouldn’t be surprised if Attorney General William Barr and the President were “in cahoots” regarding Barr’s comments about Trump’s tweets.

Rep. Val Demmings:

I have no faith or confidence in what William Barr has said. I think that this situation involving Roger Stone has turned up the heat a bit.

The president, who has been impeached, and just went through a trial, really can’t take that.

And I think — I would not be surprised, Erin, if the attorney general and the president did — were not in cahoots, in terms of Barr making a public statement to the American people.


Demings has also been vocal on Twitter, tweeting:

Would Al Capone be pardoned if he worked for this President? No guardrails, no boundaries, no accountability?

Only American values can save America.

Stand up for truth, justice, and the rule of law.

Yahoo reports U.S. Attorney General William Barr said on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s attacks on prosecutors, the judge and jurors in the trial of a longtime adviser undermined the Justice Department’s work, adding he would not be “bullied” by anyone.

In an ABC interview, Barr, the country’s top law enforcement officer, said Trump’s criticism of those involved in the case of Roger Stone “make it impossible for me to do my job.”

Barr spoke after his Justice Department abandoned prosecutors’ initial recommendation to give the veteran Republican operative seven to nine years in prison, prompting all four prosecutors to quit the case.

Trump has weighed in on Twitter all week with comments that have aroused concerns his administration is weakening the rule of law.

“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board or the president,” Barr said.


Per Fox News, In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham says President Trump wasn’t bothered by Barr’s comments at all.
