White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained about Democrats’ “baseless attacks” against Attorney General Bill Barr on Wednesday.

“AG Bill Barr served President George H.W. Bush honorably as AG and has done the same for President Trump,” Sanders tweeted. “Democrats only disgrace and humiliate themselves with their baseless attacks on such a fine public servant.”

The tweet is the White House’s first response after the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped up its hearing with the attorney general over his handling over Robert Mueller’s report.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
