Rather Than Criticizing Attorney General William Barr, Congressional Democrats Should Give Him The Praise That He Deserves

Last week, the Department of Justice decided to drop the case against former national security advisor Michael Flynn. As if on cue, Democrats blasted Attorney General William Barr and blamed him of politicizing Flynn’s case and catering to President Trump. Not only was their attack on Barr entirely predictable, it was also erroneous. As such, rather than criticizing Barr, Democrats ...
