“First, William Barr put out a 19-paged audition memo calling Robert Mueller’s investigation ‘overly aggressive’ and ‘fatally misconceived’. After being sworn in, Attorney General Barr released an unwarranted summary, which included cherry-picked quotes from the report that was then redacted and publicly released today, only after having been shared with White House lawyers and spun by a misleading 30-minute press conference.

“I am pleased that the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security is holding our first hearing of this 116th Congress about our critical duty to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.  This law has been successful at attempting to change policies that have led to injustices, and too-often indifference to victimization and suffering, throughout our country’s history.

“It is important to review how we arrived at this moment.

“Tonight, the President again came to the halls of Congress and ironically attempted to push an agenda of unity. 

“He said we should reject the politics of revenge and embrace cooperation on the same day that he taunted the Senate Minority Leader on Twitter about election results. 

“Within the first few minutes of his speech, the President touted getting families off of food stamps. He stood there just months after pushing an agenda to eliminate SNAP for families across America.
