Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs ‘Disappointed’ by Attorney General Bill Barr – One Day After Praising Barr for ‘Doing the Lord’s Work’ (Video)

What a difference a day makes.

On Wednesday, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs praised Attorney General Bill Barr for “doing the Lord’s work, as well as that of this great republic” for intervening to reduce the recommended prison sentence of convicted Trump ally Roger Stone — a virtually unprecedented move that led all four prosecutors to resign from the case.

But just one day later, Dobbs turned on Barr, saying he was “so disappointed” in Barr and his management of the “rancid, corrupt” Justice Department.

In particular, he singled out the attorney general’s Thursday interview with ABC News in which Barr complained that President Trump’s tweets about ongoing criminal cases like Stone’s “make it impossible for me to do my job.” Barr also told ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas, “I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases.”

So on Thursday, the Fox Business ripped into Barr for the public comments about Trump. “It’s a damned shame when he doesn’t get what this president has gone through and what the American people has gone through and what his charge is as Attorney General,” Dobbs said, renewing a right-wing talking point about ongoing investigations of the inner workings of the Justice Department and unsubstantiated claims about the “deep state.”

“Where the hell are the indictments, where the hell are the charges against the corrupt, the politically corrupt deep state within the Justice Department, the FBI?” Dobbs asked. “Why in the hell are we hearing apologies from someone in that rancid, corrupt department?”

Dobbs continued by suggesting that Barr should be more loyal to Trump — and shot down the longstanding practice of impartiality for Justice Department officials, particularly on criminal matters involving the president and his administration. “It’s his mission to … not to carp about his boss,” Dobbs said. “And by the way, I don’t want to hear any crap about an independent Justice Department. This Justice Department … works for the president. It’s part of the executive branch.”
