I have a feeling that once Trump is out of office, Barr will be sued and disbarred.

Not now, because Trump would pardon him. But after Trump is out of office the wealth of most of his cronies, including some in the House and Senate, will be sucked up in legal fees as they try to escape criminal charges and iimprisonment.

If there is one person I despise, aside from Trump, his family and McConnell, it's Barr. I want him to pay dearly for the role he has played in this fiasco. Personally, I would prefer that the fat, arrogant little fuck croaked and died, but if that doesn't happen I want to see him in prison.

So I dearly hope you are right.

I agree, law enforcement/prosecutors are waiting until after Trump is out to move on several people.

I wonder about the possibility of there already being indictments under seal for some of these people.

4. At this point, he wouldn't care about the disbarment at least.

from https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/446324-barr-defends-reputation-everyone-dies... “I don’t care about my legacy,” he said. “I’ll be dead.”

And I would not be surprised if he's squirreled away enough $ in unknown places that he won't care about civil suits, either.

Basically, as long as nothing puts him prison, he'll probably be just fine. He'll just retire to some island somewhere.

criminal charge he'd be on the hook for. I assume the company was paying him for legal services for a specific outcome and it appears they got it.

I'll be shocked if any criminal charges are brought against Barr.

Including himself on the last day of his reign, and every person you meet on the street who votes GOP will have absolutely no problem with it whatsoever or question why he did such a thing.

That's the problem in America. Folks who think they're supporting what's best for America have utterly destroyed it with their selfish claims on what is right and what is wrong.

And they couldn't be any more wrong than they are.
