Fox News anchor Chris Wallace slammed Attorney General William Barr Thursday morning, criticizing him for “making a case for the president,” rather than for the law or Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“The Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president, rather than the Attorney General, talking about his motives, his emotions,” he said.

Barr told reporters that in his legal opinion, President Donald Trump’s actions may have risen to the level of obstruction of justice, but because of “relentless speculation” by the news media, the President grew “angry and frustrated,” and therefore his attempts to obstruct were not criminal.
