Are you ready? Are your little fingers limber? The Barr Testimony is like a NFL playoff game for the political class. The networks are bringing in the big guns to daytime — so the heavyweights can explain it to us — under the assumption we could not possibly understand it without their help. Well, our live thread has proved the pundits wrong, time and again. We are the news!
When we did the first live thread, I was surprised at the difference of what WE focused on, as regular American voters, as opposed to what quotes the pundits pulled and tried to twist out of cherry-picked testimony. Quite revealing. All are welcome for the live thread. Michael is in charge of snacks! Hope you can make it!
Here is the link to the live testimony from FOX. All the pundits will be out and wearing their best Easter outfits this morning. I’s a rehash of the Mueller report. Thankfully, Barr’s first appearance will be in front of the Lindsey Graham led Senate Judiciary Committee. At least the Republicans will have a chance to establish narrative before Jerry Nadler gets started tomorrow.
Put on a pot of coffee and we can have brunch together. The Barr testimony starts at 10:00am Eastern.
Here is a copy of the Barr opening statement, released last night. Only 4 pages. Easy read for those who arrive early. Link to BARR opening statement to Senate
See you soon!
