Matthews: Barr ‘Out to Destroy’ Everything to Cover For Trump

On MSNBC’s Hardball Tuesday, host Chris Matthews declared that Attorney General William Barr is “out to destroy the government, the FBI, everything, in order to cover the tracks of the president.”

“It’s an embarrassment to have an attorney general who looks like a Roy Cohn, a guy who will do anything to defend the president, and now has become his hitman,” Matthews said. “Not only will he play defense, he’s out to destroy the government, the FBI, everything, in order to cover the tracks of the president.”

Matthews then went on to ask Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro what can be done to “stop Barr from doing what he’s out to do now, destroy the FBI.”
