This clip of Senator Hirono’s opening statement before beginning her questioning in the Barr hearing is one of those rare videos that lives up to the hype:
"Being attorney general of the United States is a sacred trust. You have betrayed that trust. America deserves better. You should resign.”

I think my favorite part was when she said Barr was no better than Rudy Giuliani and Kellyanne Conway, lying for the “grifting liar who sits in the Oval Office.” That’s telling it like it is, Senator!
Oh, and when she said he’d violated the “sacred trust” of his position as AG, pointed out his decades-long history of lying on behalf of Republican miscreants and called on him to resign. Yowza!
Well, someone had to say it. Thank you for saying that, Senator Hirono!
