The date below—December 7, 2018—must now be entered into the timeline of the Ukraine scandal, as it's starting to look like AG Barr may have been nominated in the first instance to aid Trump in getting dirt on Biden, as that effort began right before then. 

PS/ Attorney General Bill Barr was, per Parnas, "on the team," as well as being—as we already knew—longtime friends with diGenova and Toensing, who I've been calling for the FBI to investigate since December 2016. DiGenova and Toensing were (with Rudy) running the BLT Prime team.

PS2/ So there's no chance Trump nominated Barr without checking in with Giuliani, Toensing, and diGenova, who were *already* then working on helping Trump get dirt on Biden. Clearly, they believed Barr would be a useful ally at DOJ. *Parnas* claims they brought him into the loop.
