Hey @CNN, my friend @colbymommy wants to know if any Time-Warner outlets are covering Barr and mentioning he was a board member.  https://www.barrons.com/articles/attorney-general-nominee-william-barr-made-1-73-million-from-at-t-time-warner-deal-51547493385 

And...wat dis? Barr also sat on the board of a company that does...nuclear power plants? What do you think @LindseyGrahamSC?  https://news.dominionenergy.com/news?item=71634 

Sort of puts Barr's comments about Hillary Clinton, "Uranium One," and Solyndra in a different light, right? Since he was on the board of a company that did nuke plants and fossil fuels.  https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/16/politics/bill-barr-uranium-one/index.html 

Actually, this raises some interesting questions about Barr working for Russian Alfa Bank's law firm, Kirkland & Ellis - for Caterpillar.  https://www.law.com/americanlawyer/almID/1202781532546/Kirkland-Prodded-By-Caterpillar-Confirms-Bill-Barrs-Return/ 

Caterpillar was accused of tax evasion using offshore banking - in the billions.

A week before the police raid, Barr was counsel and Trump was with Caterpillar's CEO.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2017-06-01/the-whistleblower-behind-caterpillar-s-massive-tax-headache-could-make-600-million 

Caterpillar celebrated 100 YEARS IN RUSSIA recently. (Weird!)

Did any of those profits flow through offshore banking? I wonder what Barr advised...  https://www.caterpillar.com/en/news/caterpillarNews/h/caterpillar-commemorates-100-years-in-russia.html 

Caterpillar Financial operates out of Moscow to finance deals in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. Offices in Dubai, Beijing, Zurich, and Malaysia, too!  https://www.caterpillar.com/en/company/global-footprint/eame/cis-and-mongolia.html 

Also, isn't it a bit of a coincidence that Barr's daughter moved over Treasury FinCEN, which would oversee such crimes?

Or his son-in-law at the National Security Division of DOJ, which would investigate espionage?  https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/13/politics/barr-family-justice-department-moves/index.html 

Barr was also on the board of Och-Ziff, that nice hedge fund that got busted for bribery and fraud in Africa over...mining.  https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/03/former-och-ziff-fund-executive-indicted-for-fraud-prosecutor-says.html 

And now he's in contempt of Congress over hiding a report that involves Russia.

I'm beginning to think he's not appropriate as Attorney General!
