US Attorney General William Barr compared his return to the Department of Justice to the landing of Allied troops in Normandy, a Fox News report says. According to the Attorney General, he had to dodge accusations and criticism like World War II soldiers dodged bullets.
"As we watched the coverage of June 6, 1944, D-Day, I had the thought that my arrival this time felt a little bit, I think, like jumping into Sainte-Mere-Eglise on the morning of June 5, trying to figure out where you could land without getting shot," he said at the FBI Academy on Friday.
Barr was suspected of bias after he wrote a memo in which he said Trump did not exceed his power limits in firing FBI Director James Comey. Since then both Democratic lawmakers and the media have accused him of purposefully shielding President Trump from scrutiny. Earlier in May, Trump tasked the Attorney General with declassifying all intelligence that led to the initiation of the Mueller Probe in the first place, which again fueled the fire of criticism against Barr.
