CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin Blasts Bill Barr: ‘Sean Hannity Is the Attorney General!’

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin tore into Attorney General Bill Barr Friday night by comparing him to one of President Donald Trump‘s closest media allies.

Barr appeared on Fox News today and defended the probe into the origins of the Russia investigation, raising concerns that he previously addressed in hearings and defending the president’s “witch hunt” rhetoric.

On The Sitaution Room today, Wolf Blitzer ran the clip of Barr saying it’s understandable why POTUS would decry a “witch hunt” against him when facing the accusations he did.

Toobin said in response, “I was amazed by that interview and the one in the Wall Street Journal.”

“It turns out,” he continued, “the attorney general is Sean Hannity, and Sean Hannity is the attorney general! I mean, every talking point from Fox News gets repeated!… I just found it an absolutely astonishing couple of interviews.”
