Barr is doing the job that Trump hired him to do; protect Trump.

No wonder DJT thinks he is such a good man.

Barr punted when he asked if Trump had read Mueller report.

Why punt?

Why not answer the question?

So, he knew for awhile that Mueller found no collusion.  More interesting is that he offered and Mueller declined the opportunity to review the summary before it was released.  

You do realize today was another bad day for the Trump collusion crowd?  The ones who post on this board certainly are quiet.  Not one word about Barr’s testimony.  

A lot more could and should be said about today’s hearing, but I’ll be kind and take the high road.

“On "America's Newsroom" Wednesday, Bennett said Barr was "very impressive" in how he handled Democrats' combative questioning.

"They've got a growling bear with a brain in Bill Barr, and he turned the tables on them," Bennett said.”

I truly think we, as a country, are in such different . . .zip codes, if you will. . . regarding what we see and hear. 

I listened to Barr yesterday as he spoke before the House Appropriations subcommittee via radio on my long drive to Chico and my impression was he did a great job talking about the law and not relying on emotion.  Facts over feelings is one of the mantras I use when researching different subjects (comes in handy with anti-vaxxers).

Later in the evening I saw a press conference with Dems and listened to their impressions/complaints and I found myself shaking my head.  Did we hear the same testimony?

We are all firmly entrenched in our own biases . . . and that makes it hard to be open-minded and listen to the other side.  

I can't access WaPo anymore either . . . I've had my share of free looks and unless I pay, I can't see anything.

National Review still lets me look however.

i've only heard bits of pieces of Barr's testimony, but I thought it odd that he did not answer the question about whether anyone in the White House has read the Mueller report. It doesn't seem like a difficult, or unexpected question.

Yes, someone else mentioned that too. I guess trying to set the narrative that Trump has his sharpy out and is doing the redacting himself.

CNN’s ratings are plunging.  As they need fake news to survive, I’m sure they’ll pick up that narrative and run with it.

See, I don't think this is odd.  I heard what he said yesterday but your comment made me go look it up just now.  I agreed with him yesterday and today.

“I’m not going to say anything more about it until the report is out and everyone has a chance to look at it,” Barr responded to Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey during his testimony at a House Appropriations subcommittee.

Maybe he didn't want to say the truth and didn't want to lie to congress. Or he really does not know.

I agree with nursej.

Why couldn't, or wouldn't he answer a yes or no question.

Waiting until Congress has a copy of the report, doesn't impact his ability to say yes or no.

My guess, is that we will probably never get an answer to that simple question.

I'm pretty sure he knows, since he would have been the one to share.

Other then the reason I presented, why would we care if Trump has read it?

I may be wrong, but don't senators and congressmen/women have aides who wade through lengthy and ungainly reports and bills, and summarize them for their particular politician, so s/he doesn't have to read all of it? 

I seriously doubt Trump could tackle the entire reading of those hundreds of pages; he's too impatient to pay thoughtful, thorough attention to what might touch on him and his actions. 

He is a living human political version of Cliff Notes...

I am not sure. I am a Nuse. I have never worked in government. Transparency is something that crosses all party line regardless on one's job.
