Will Barr was nominated for a singular mission: Purging the Russia investigators and issuing pardons

Heís clearly been told to shut SCRM down by the KGOP, not just Dotard. He also helped Bush pardon everyone in Iran-Contra. Heís back for round 2. Thatís his twofer. His threefer is further helping the KGOP to establish an oligarical fascist/authoritarian dictatorship.

The question of the century is who will succeed. Will it be Bob Barr or Bob Mueller?

2. Barr is the guy Dotard nominated

to replace Sessions as the AG. He was AG for GHWB and was instrumental in all the pardons given Iran/Contra guys.

He is bad news and Mitch will push him through.

9. Does he, or is that an artifact of so many people mixing them up?

These days, if a story starts the ball running with the wrong name, it can get repeated so many times it can look like that's what everyone calls him.

13. That's true

I think itís Ari that called him Bob wrongly to get the whole thing rolling. Canít find any reference to him being called Bob online. So, I changed to William.

And yeah I knew about the house impeachment manager Bob Barr too before posting this. Used to be on CNN all the time in the oleí days.

On December 7, 2018, President Donald Trump announced that he would nominate Barr to again serve as Attorney General of the United States.[2]

6. Yes, but not the Barr you named in the OP

William Barr is the hack Trump is putting up.

Bob Barr is a different hack

8. I really hope the OP meant William Barr, not Bob Barr

William Barr was Attorney General during Poppy Bush's administration. Trump wants him to be his next Attorney General.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Barr
William Barr is John McCain-level evil. It takes a special breed of assholery to rise to Trump-level evil, and fortunately for all William Barr isn't that bad. He's still a worthless piece of shit.

Bob Barr was a Congressman from Georgia. He was elected on a single-issue platform (impeaching Bill Clinton for something) in the 1994 Contract On America red wave, and was voted out in the 2002 election.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Barr

Bob Barr is evil in ways Trump only wishes he could be. This makes him a perfect addition to the Trump inner circle, which is why I hope they don't ask him to be.

11. Bob Barr became a Libertarian

and ended up running for President on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2008. Oddly enough I ended up watching their whole nomination process (one of the CSPANs ran it live back then - probably CSPAN3). So I would put him in the category of the Ron/Rand Paul ilk despite originating as a precursor to someone like Steve King.

(but yeah the OP should edit to say William Barr)

12. I bet it's the KGOP only, and its survival. He's old school GOP asshole, who tolerated Trump, but

now the effort is "Clean up on aisle 45".

16. Maybe that is why all the Counter Intelligence stories have dropped?

They wanted to get this information out before the confirmation hearings for Barr started.

17. Notice that this story about Trump being investigated is from the FBI investigation-

It was turned over to Mueller shortly after. So this story came probably from an FBI source. We have no idea what Mueller's team is doing with it. But we might assume that some FBI agent really wants it known now that the Dems have the ability to issue subpoenas and conduct hearings.

19. He "auditioned" for the job by writing an unsolicited memo putting him on Trump's side.

I met him once, in Washington. He was so slick and conservative that I was repelled instantly.
