"People should be really annoyed at this: When it says the House sends a letter to the Attorney General demanding to know what he's doing with the ACA, and he's been given two weeks to respond, okay. If you have a preexisting condition and you have to go to an emergency room—you, yourself or with one of your children—you don't get two weeks to respond. Your entire income, your entire family's future could be gone in one moment in an emergency room, and we give these clowns two weeks to respond to the potential destruction of an act that has saved hundreds of lives,” comments Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Mika Brzezinski and Eugene Robinson about House committee chairs having demanded information from the Department of Justice—within two weeks—on the decision to revert its position on the Affordable Care Act, now holding it as unconstitutional.

Listen in as Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle discuss Attorney General William Barr’s controversial testimony in a contentious Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where he answered questions on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and was accused of protecting President Donald Trump at the country’s expense. “We had a sitting attorney general of the United States who clearly had not even read the full Mueller report. He had not looked at the underlying evidence within the Mueller report. He went out of his way to disparage members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who work for this country to protect this country. He went out of his way to damage and disparage Bob Mueller and his effort, and...really at the end of the day, he made Jeff Sessions look like Justice Brandeis,” said Barnicle.

We might as well be listening to Congressman Steve King from Iowa when you hear Franklin Graham speak,” says Barnicle, referencing anti-gay remarks made by Rep. King (R-IA) during his campaign last year.

It comes down to a choice...‘what do you want?’ And I think an increasing number of Americans—they want calmness, they want a restoration of the spirit of what they think this country is all about. And the spirit of what this country is all about is not lying, it's not malevolence, it's not daily division implemented by the leader of this country—the President of the United States. It’s more to the side of what (Presidential candidate Pete) Buttigieg was talking about,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel talks about President Donald Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, a day after South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg announced his candidacy.
