The enforcement action Congress needs to take is arresting these people and, perhaps, they will begin to rethink their loyalty to Trump. He wouldn't pick up their dry cleaning as a favor to any of them.

What's sad is they ARE probably going to make a movie about the POS. He doesn't deserve the attention he craves so much but yet he will be forever memorialized. Something he will forever take pleasure in.

I would think this also counts as witness tampering, wouldn't you say? They have gone to the lengths of sending letters to keep witnesses from testifying.

I am truly baffled as to how Barr could choose to end his career this way! I think we all knew he was corrupt too by how carefully he chose his words during the hearing. Why was he allowed to weasel his way to AG? Trump has all these permanent positions open because he's waiting for those willing to sell him their souls. I think the 25th amendment was created just for him. He is all but illiterate and that alone prohibits him from the ability to do the job as POTUS! This past 3 years has made me realize that its not the system not working. It's all the corruption of those elected or hired to work in the system
