"Reclaiming my time".
The Barr hearing was another great example of the fact that the US government has turned into a partisan farce. The only "rule of law" is that Democrats Deep / Administrative State win ... end of story. If the real rulers -- meaning the Democrat / Deep-Administrative State declare that riots, attempting to burn federal courthouses, etc are "good", they are -- Barr was appointed by a Republican, he is a pariah! He can be treated as such!
Barr replied that U.S. marshals and other federal agents have a duty to guard Portland’s federal courthouse from people tossing fireworks and trying to vandalize and break into the building. He said they are under siege in that building and need help dealing with a nightly barrage of fireworks, fires, and attacks. Multiple law enforcement personnel have sustained serious injuries, Barr said.
“We are on the defense, we are not looking for trouble, and if the state and the city would provide the law enforcement services that other jurisdictions do, we would have no need to have additional marshals in the courthouse,” the attorney general said.
