Joe Biden Wants Barr to Resign as Trump’s AG — But Called Him ‘One of the Best’ Back in the 1990s

While Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden gave high praise to Attorney General William Barr in the 90s, he now is calling for his resignation.

While testifying in 1995, Barr was praised by Biden, who was the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Barr had served in the early 90s as former President George H.W. Bush’s attorney general.

“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general,” Biden said to Barr. “You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”

Biden was previously known as a moderate Democrat, although now is flipping in many of his views, including abortion as IJR News previously reported.

The former lawmaker had even “complimented” Barr during his original confirmation hearing, for giving “the first candid answer anyone has given on Roe v. Wade that I can remember in God knows how many years.”

Now, Biden is claiming that Barr has “lost the confidence of the American people” and should resign.

Watch:

“Vice President Biden believes Bill Barr’s conduct as Attorney General has been unacceptable, and he should resign his office,” said Biden campaign spokesman T.J. Ducklo to CBS News.

He also referenced the Mueller report summary, saying that it was proof he was no longer trustworthy.

“As many across the political spectrum have said,” Ducklo said. “Bill Barr’s behavior today bears almost no resemblance to the person who testified 28 years ago. He has abused the public trust for political gain and has clearly lost the confidence of the American people, and he has to go.”

However, Barr admitted in a recent interview with CBS News that he does not care about his change in reputation.

“Everyone dies and I am not…I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that, you know, immortality comes by having odes sung about you over the centuries,” Barr told Crawford.

What do you think?

These past videos on opinions of people are dumb. They are terrible “gotcha” videos because everyone does it. That’s not even a politician thing.

Opinions change… or should we just have a running stream of GOP leaders giving opinions on president Trump during the primaries for the 2016 election cycle?

Pardon me but didn’t everyone give an opinion of Trump the minute he decided to run? And how does that saying go…. “You realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.” Biden has been flipping and flopping to accommodate his constituents

I hear you – my comment was NOT a dig at the president.

It is relatable though as many in the GOP flipped their original opinion of the president in order to stay in good standing with their constituents. That’s just one scenario in politics…

Again, opinions change.

Your right, Biden is not a strong leader, he would cave to China and any one else that said boo to him. Now he’s for killing babies after being against for 40 years. Is that ok with you?
