Fmr. Obama DOJ Spox: Bill Barr’s Soul ‘Was Eaten by Fox News’

As Nicolle Wallace ripped Attorney General Bill Barr today––before the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold him in contempt––she brought up James Comey‘s recent op-ed about how President Donald Trump eats the souls of those who work for him and they all end up tainted.

“Has Barr’s soul been eaten?” she asked. “Has someone eaten Barr’s soul?”

Former Obama DOJ spokesman Matthew Miller said it wasn’t quite Trump:

“I think Bill Barr’s soul and his brain and everything else was eaten by Fox News years before he joined the Trump administration. I think he joined with very aggressive views of executive power, I don’t think Trump corrupted him this quickly. I think he joined looking to do this for Trump, looking to end this investigation for Trump.”
