The type of bare knuckles lawyer the Church would have hired

Richard Painter, for one, is furious about Barr’s grotesque speech to the Federalist Society.

Another lunatic authoritarian speech as Barr goes from attacking “radical secularists” at
@NDLaw to one month later attacking the “resistance” at @FedSoc.
Impeach Barr now!

Bill Barr is the type of bare knuckles lawyer the Church would have hired thirty years ago to cover up sex abuse cases. The bishop would have been someone like Rep. Jim Jordan. Neither of these men belong anywhere near the impeachment inquiry.
