So much going on.

Sasse talks so fast, I need to rewind the DVR to understand some of the back and forth.

Long story short, he just insinuated the Barr couldn't be trusted to oversee all the current cases against persons/entities as a result of the Mueller investigation.

What prosecutorial skill. And all while being utterly composed, even toned, gracious coming in for the landing. He made a charging decision without reviewing the evidence. Must have prepared the “no collusion, no obstruction” before Mueller’s ink was dried. He and Rosie didn’t need no stinkin’
evidence.

55. Bob, what is with the letter? Why didn' t you just pick up the phone.

Sounds like Barr wasn't happy that Mueller put it in writing. That pesky documenting of the shit going on.

Barr called Mueller's letter - snitty. Bob probably had someone else write the letter.

Barr got snippy when Bluementhal asked for his notes on the phone call.

I expect the House is going to use this info to demand a copy of those notes because Graham ran out of there in a snit with the vapors declaring the whole matter "over".
