Just when the ‘ever Trump-hating’ Democrats thought they’ve got a grip on Attorney General Barr, he lays the final smack down on them. I can only imagine the look on Pelosi’s face while watching Barr’s reply on why Federal Agents were sent to Portland.
Throughout Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr, Democratic panelists painted the Trump administration as a cruel force that unleashed federal agents to Portland, OR, in order to establish a police state to pepper spray and tear gas civilians.
Barr didn’t agree with that assessment and shared a bit more context. As Barr explained, it is the federal government’s duty to protect this nation’s courthouses, “the heart of federal property.” On Monday night, a rioter threw a Molotov cocktail at the federal courthouse in Portland, which caused it “to burst into a fireball,” KATU reported. Rioters have also injured at least half a dozen agents with fireworks and lasers. The DOJ arrested 22 people in the attacks.
“We couldn’t allow that type of rioting,” the AG said.
“Federal courts are under attack,” Barr said. “Since when is it okay to try to burn down a federal court?”
