Michael speaks with former US Attorney, Phillip Halpern who very publicly resigned last week out of protest and disgust for Attorney General William P. Barr’s shocking abuse of power. Halpern spent 36 years in his position at the Department of Justice; serving under 19 different Attorney’s General and six different presidents while prosecuting all manner of crime and government corruption. Under Bill Barr though, Halpern says the Justice Department became just another appendage of the Trump administration with Barr acting as the president's sword and shield; saving him from the Mueller Report, impeachment and countless other high crimes and misdemeanors while intervening to save Trump’s corrupt cronies like Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn from prison. With just eight days to go before election day learn why Bill Barr might just be the most dangerous man in America.
