President Donald Trump and his closest allies have droned on and on and on with complaints about House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) — seriously, there have been a lot — but none of those have driven him to actually stop his investigative work. This week, as the impeachment proceedings that he has helped lead against Trump continued, Schiff strongly denounced Attorney General Bill Barr in a series of public Twitter posts. As he’s progressed through his time in office, Barr has repeatedly proven his allegiance to Trump above the basic rule of law.

Most recently, he has publicly claimed that the Justice Department inspector general’s report that found no effect from political bias on the Russia investigation is wrong. It’s unclear where Barr even imagines possibly getting evidence for this claim — Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s team reviewed more than one million documents and interviewed some one hundred people. Barr ran with his claim that Horowitz was wrong anyway.

Schiff tweeted:

‘The IG is independent, and shielded from political influence. His investigation found no evidence that bias affected the opening of the case. Bill Barr has shown himself to be Trump’s Roy Cohn — only interested in promoting Trump’s personal interests. You choose who to believe.’

Getting even more direct in his denunciations of the current top law enforcement officer of the United States, Schiff added:

‘Ever since he was appointed Attorney General and demonstrated that his loyalty is to Donald Trump and not the interests of justice, I have warned: When it comes to the rule of law, Bill Barr is the second most dangerous man in the country.’

Barr has previously proven his allegiance to Donald Trump through means like his handling of the findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. When that investigation first concluded and the entire report remained private, Barr publicized that Mueller had declined to bring an obstruction of justice case against Trump and brazenly left out the part that Mueller had felt constrained by Justice Department precedent against indicting a sitting president, no matter what. Mueller even wrote to Barr, expressing his concerns — which Barr subsequently lied about to Congress, who he told he had no idea what reports about Mueller team disagreements with him meant.
