.Maddow: 'If you're the attorney general of the United States and you lie to a federal judge and the judge finds out about it, particularly if this is the not the first time you've done it, the federal judge is going to be mad.'

Rachel Maddow looks at former Attorney General Bill Barr's record of lying about the Mueller report, and outlines a federal judge's finding that Barr lied again about how the decision was made not to charge Donald Trump with obstruction of justice, ordering the release of never-before-seen material on that subject unless Attorney General Merrick Garland appeals that decision.

Opinion | How Bill Barr can still be held accountable for undermining the DOJOpinion | JoyceWhiteVance: The problem here is that the former president wasn't looking for honesty from his appointees, but for loyalty. He expected Barr to help him stay in power. That’s the role Barr played throughout his tenure as attorney general. MarionBurr5 JoyceWhiteVance TRAITORS to America. JoyceWhiteVance I don't care how it is done- all I know is for democracy to survive and thrive- all the crooks of the Trump administration, including CoverupBarr have to be held accountable JoyceWhiteVance IF I may make a suggestion. The 'Bar Exam', should be named ANYTHING else! That is how much stain William BARR has put onto our legal system.
