William Barr may be one of the greatest Attorney Generals of all time.
But because he is a fair, incorruptible man, the left absolutely despises him.
And now they hate him even more after he smacked them with the news they have been dreading.
The appointment of William Barr as Attorney General is the worst blow for the Democrat Party in a long time.
Barr isn’t like other past Administration officials, who held loyalty not to the President, but to the deep state working to take down President Trump.
Instead, William Barr is in his position to do the job he is assigned to do.
That involved releasing Robert Mueller’s report into potential Russia collusion.
Barr did just that, passing on the news that Trump is exonerated, and that the two year witch hunt led by Robert Mueller was for nothing.
Since that day, the Democrats have been going after him with their entire might.
They have even held votes to hold him in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with subpoenas that he would violate the law by complying with.
But President Trump continues to protect Barr, exercising his executive authority to keep him safe.
And now William Barr just made another decision that will be sure to infuriate the Democrats yet again.
One thing Democrats have been salivating over since the day Trump took office is his tax returns.
They are personal documents that are nobody’s business but his own.
But Democrats are demanding them to assist in their torrent of investigations occurring currently.
Oftentimes, candidates for president do release their tax returns, which makes some think that it is a customary thing to do.
But there is no requirement for a candidate to release their tax returns.
If the American people had a problem with him not releasing them, Trump wouldn’t be President today.
So the American people have already decided that his tax returns don’t need to be public.
And the Department of Justice, which is led by Barr, agrees.
The DOJ just backed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in his battle with the Democrats over Trump’s tax returns.
DOJ Office of Legal Counsel head Steven A. Engel made his reasoning clear in a 33-page letter, where he outlines the risk of abuse that comes with complying with their request.
“The Chairman’s request that Treasury turn over the President’s tax returns, for the apparent purpose of making them public, amounted to an unprecedented use of the Committee’s authority and raised a serious risk of abuse,” wrote Engel.
Democrats want nothing more than to release Trump’s tax returns to the public.
Trump insists there is nothing in them of concern, but it is still a private document which he has the right to keep that way.
Allowing the Democrats to even view them privately, is essentially releasing the information to the public.
The Democrat Party has a reputation for leaking classified information to the media.
Do you think Democrats should be allowed to view Trump’s tax returns?
