Trump (Re)-Tweets While Barr Skips House Hearing

It’s Thursday.

President Trump has so far only re-tweeted 3 times.

While the President re-tweets a New York Times article posted to the account Kenneth Vogel, a National Review Editorial posted to the account of Rich Lowery, and a tweet that asks “I understand the talk about Mueller not deciding on Trump obstruction. But he did decide didn’t he?”, posted by Byron York, the Attorney General William Barr, missed his scheduled testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

The reason according to Barr, he wasn’t happy with how Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), had set the formatting for questions to be asked.

After yesterday’s performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Barr ducking out of the less friendly majority D House Committee is not shocking breaking news.

The committee went ahead with the planned hearing.

After the meeting concluded Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi addressed Barr’s testimony from Wednesday during her press conference.

Nadler spoke to the press.

Rep. Steve Choen (D-TN) prior to the hearing placed a chicken at the witness table in Barr’s place.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), walks us through the contempt process, as Barr failed to comply with a Congressional subpoena by failing to delivery to Congress the unredacted Mueller Report.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders believes that the D’s are afraid to ask Barr questions, even though they were planning on one round of questions for themselves, while allowing two lawyers to ask questions in the following second round.

Two highlights from Wednesday’s Senate hearing.

I don’t think that will ever get old.

In the above clip Barr “grapples” with the meaning of the word “suggestion” he goes on to explain that he based his decision to not charge President Trump with obstruction of justice based solely on Mueller’s Report, he did not, review the underlying evidence mentioned in the footnotes, such as texts or emails.

Currently President Trump is speaking at the White House National Prayer Day event.

1. Steve Moore…

2. I’ve asked Steve to work with me toward future economic growth in our Country.

I wonder if Moore will first pay the 75,000 dollars he owes to the IRS, before he goes to work getting paid with our tax dollars, probably.

Or will address some of his past statements such as a wife should stand by her man?

He was for gold standard before he was against it…

Soy bean prices have fallen because of “deflation” not because China stop buying U.S. soy beans.

“a great pro-growth economist…”

Things that make you go hmmmm.

For What It’s Worth.

The Wall Street Journal: Mr. Moore told The Wall Street Journal earlier Thursday that he didn’t plan to withdraw and that a White House official had urged him to stay in the process
