Blumenthal demands to know if Barr will provide notes his office wrote about his conversations with Mueller.

"No," said the AG.

Worth a watch.

Also as a reminder, Barr has offered to show Democrats the full, unredacted report minus Grand Jury information. They've all refused the briefing.

Sen. Ted Cruz commends Barr for leading the DOJ with "integrity."

Kamala Harris wants to know if Rod Rosenstein was cleared to make decisions based on the Mueller report.  He...was in charge of overseeing the Mueller report.  Barr seemed baffled/bemused by this line of questioning & rightly so.

New Democrat argument: How dare Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein take Mueller’s findings as fact. Question for Mueller: Should Barr and Rosenstein have questioned your two year long investigation?

Barr is steamrolling over all of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates 

  • May 01, 2019 2:31 PM est | Katie Pavlich       

So now Democrats are going to argue Barr should have looked at all of the underlying evidence and *questioned* Mueller's findings? Really?

Kamala Harris shocked to find that Barr took Mueller's findings as fact

Remember when Democrats weren't concerned about the Russians?

Booker lecturing...Barr responds he's not sure what Booker is talking about.

  • May 01, 2019 2:17 PM est | Katie Pavlich       

And now Barr is schooling Cory Booker on words again. 

Booker: You're using legal terms, while Trump used obstruction. 

Barr: Obstruction is a legal term. 

Booker: Uh, um, uh, I meant collusion. 

  • May 01, 2019 2:16 PM est | Matt Vespa       

If you repeat Trump's words, whatever the hell that means, you might be an agent of Trump. Is that what Booker is going with here? 

  • May 01, 2019 2:16 PM est | Leah Barkoukis       
  • May 01, 2019 2:16 PM est | Matt Vespa       

Barr has this 'dude, just shut the hell up' face going on right now as Booker speaks and it's great ... 

  • May 01, 2019 2:16 PM est | Katie Pavlich       

So basically, Cory Booker is just going to lecture Barr.

Biggest statements from Barr so far todau: 

-President Trump was falsely accused

-Mueller took issue with the press coverage of his letter to Barr about his four-page letter about principle findings in his report, not with Barr's accuracy 

-We have to stop using the criminal justice system as a political weapon 

-Spying is a "good English word" that he will not back away from 

-Mindboggling Dems are still obsessed with the four page letter about the report since Barr has released the full report 

-Russia made serious efforts to create discord among Americans
