WATCH: AG Barr Levels Reporter During Press Conference
At a Thursday morning press conference, Attorney General William P. Barr once again confirmed that President Donald J. Trump did not collude with Russians to win the 2016 election.
The Attorney General made sure reporters knew who was in charge.
“I’m not sure what your basis is for saying I’m being generous to the President,” Barr told a member of the press gaggle.
That caught her off guard, and she began mumbling about “precedent.”
“Is there another precedent for it [the way the President has been treated]” Barr asked.
Of course, the reporter answered “no.”
“Okay – so unprecedented is an accurate description,” Barr said.
He then moved to another reporter.
Barr: "I'm not sure what your basis is for saying I'm being generous to the President."
A reporter then brings up his use of the word "unprecedented."
"Is there another precedent for it," Barr asks.
"No," the reporter answers.
