MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough declared Attorney General William Barr’s reputation has been “sullied” just hours before he addressed the media regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report, saying it’s time to rethink the process how attorney generals are picked.
“He does something once again that is going to scuff up his reputation. Absolutely his reputation is shot,” Scarborough said of Barr’s handling of the release of the Mueller report, also describing him as a “political hack” and no longer “a respected legal mind.”
“Here’s a guy that served in Washington for 30 years, had the respect of Republicans — he won’t get his reputation back. It’s shot. Sullied, the way he’s handled himself.”
Scarborough’s remarks came ahead of the release of the report detailing findings from the two-year investigation into the Trump campaign and the Russia government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
Barr released the entire Mueller report on Thursday and many Dems are not happy it is not a vindication of the narrative they have been pushing for years.
