During a Federalist Society dinner in Washington D.C. on Friday evening, Attorney General William Barr unloaded on congressional Democrats, accusing them of "sabotaging" President Trump and his administration.
“I deeply admire the American presidency as a political and constitutional institution,” Barr said. “Unfortunately over the past several decades, we have seen a steady encroachment on executive authority by the other branches of the government.”
He continued by hammering Democrats for trying to obstruct President Trump's appointees.
“Immediately after President Trump won the election, opponents inaugurated what they called the ‘resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his administration,” Barr added.
“The cost of this constant harassment is real,” he continued.
Barr finished: “The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president,” he said.

Barr’s comments came on the same day the House Intelligence Committee held its second day of public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry.
Trump has been caught up in an impeachment inquiry over allegations that he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
