Sen. Richard Blumenthal on Mueller Probe: AG William Barr Must Decide If He Is Going To Act As One Of The President's "Minions"


Thursday on CNN's "New Day," Sen. Richard Blumenthal warned Attorney General William Barr to buckle up for a "wild ride" when special counsel Robert Mueller's report comes out.

"That means [Barr] has to make a decision: is he going to be the people’s lawyer or is he going to be the president’s lawyer?" Blumenthal said. "Clearly, this president regards the attorney general as one of his minions."

"He has no respect for the law, in fact, utter contempt for judges and the judicial process and he has denounced relentlessly the FBI and other law enforcement. Absolutely unprecedented, shattering all the norms."

"William Barr is a professional, at least he should be," the senator said. "And he's going to have to stand up and speak out for the Department of Justice and the rule of law. And that will make his ride pretty wild."
