According to Attorney General William Barr, far-left lawmakers are waging a partisan war against President Trump. While speaking at the Federalist Society in D.C. on Monday, Barr said Democrat Party officials are working to undermine the rule of law and the executive branch.

“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called the resistance,” explained the U.S. attorney general

Barr went on to say Democrats are obstructing the work of the U.S. government, while at the same time accusing President Trump of doing just that. He called on Democrats to work together with the president to move America forward.

“What it means is that instead of viewing themselves as the loyal opposition as opposing parties have done in this country for over 200 years, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government,” he stated.

Barr pointed out the Democrat push for impeachment and other investigations into President Trump are designed to incapacitate and harass the executive branch.
