He’s not willing to bend to appease the left…
In a recent interview with CBS News, U.S. Attorney General William Barr stated that he wasn’t too concerned with his reputation, since “everyone dies.”
While interviewing AG Barr, Jan Crawford, CBS’s News Chief legal correspondent, asked if Barr was worried about “the reputation that you have worked your whole life on, ” to which he simply replied “I am at the end of my career.”
“Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?” he asked.
He continued saying that although he’d “rather be back to my old life” he didn’t regret taking the job.
During the early parts of the interview, Barr said he believed that special counsel Robert Mueller “could’ve reached a conclusion as to whether” President Donald Trump committed “criminal activity,” even if he was unable to indict.
Barr admitted he and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Resentein were “both surprised” when they met with Mueller and learned that he hadn’t came to a conclusion about whether or not President trump had committed any unlawful acts, such as obstruction of justice.
He continued, that he wasn’t going to press on arguing “about those reasons when he didn’t make a decision.” He continued to say that neither himself or Rosenstein pushed on the Mueller controversy. Barr stated furthermore that he and was under the impression that Mueller had provided him and Rosenstein with a sufficient amount of information to be able “to make a decision” not to prosecute President Donald Trump.

Barr rejected all allegations suggesting he was going out of his way to protect POTUS at the expense of his job. AG Barr urged that he was “going to make the decisions based on the law and the facts,” and he thought the resentment he received “just goes with the territory of being the attorney general in a hyper-partisan period of time.”
