“He’s a Republican hatchet man,” Holtzman said. “Let’s go back to when he was advising about the pardons in the Iran situation,” when Barr orchestrated the Iran-Contra cover-up that protected then-president George H. W. Bush.
“The fact of the matter is, we have an attorney general who put himself politically right in the middle of what a special prosecutor, a special counsel, Bob Mueller did, and he drew conclusions that Mueller failed to,” she went on. “He hasn’t released that report yet.”
Holtzman indicated that Barr’s investigation into “improper surveillance” by the FBI during the 2016 was meritless.
“The only reason I can think that Barr is doing this is he is a flunky for Donald Trump,” she said. “He’s not an independent thinker, he sounds good, he seems sincere, but if you look at what he does, not what he says, then you see the actions of a hatchet man here.”
