Barr defends dropping Flynn case: ‘I’m doing the law’s bidding’

Barr defends dropping Flynn case: ‘I’m doing the law’s bidding’

Barr denied in an interview with CBS News that he was doing the bidding of the President, who had repeatedly lambasted the probe, in carrying out the remarkable reversal.

“No, I’m doing the law’s bidding,” Barr said.

Barr’s comments come following the department’s request to drop the case, filed with a federal judge in DC District Court on Thursday, in a sudden end to a protracted legal battle that’s lately been fertile ground for Trump to attack the early Russia investigation and former FBI leadership he dislikes.

The filing drew swift criticism from former top FBI officials who had worked on the case and supported the investigation into Flynn, whose lies about his contacts with Russia prompted Trump to fire him three years ago and special counsel Robert Mueller to flip him to cooperate in the Russia investigation.

Barr echoed the legal reasoning to drop the case that was laid

Portrait of Isaac Newton and listing of this Three Laws of Motion

The motion of an aircraft through the air can be explained and described by
physical principals discovered over 300 years ago by Sir Isaac Newton. Newton worked
in many areas of mathematics and physics. He developed the theories of gravitation
in 1666, when he was only 23 years old. Some twenty years later, in 1686, he
presented his three laws of motion in the “Principia Mathematica Philosophiae
Naturalis.” The laws are shown above, and the application of these laws
to aerodynamics are given on separate slides.


Newton’s first law states that every
object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in

Newton’s Laws

Newton’s third law: All forces in the universe occur in equal but oppositely directed pairs. There are no isolated forces; for every external force that acts on an object there is a force of equal magnitude but opposite direction which acts back on the object which exerted that external force. In the case of internal forces, a force on one part of a system will be countered by a reaction force on another part of the system so that an isolated system cannot by any means exert a net force on the system as a whole. A system cannot “bootstrap” itself into motion with purely internal forces – to achieve a net force and an acceleration, it must interact with an object external to itself.

Without specifying the nature or origin of the forces on the two masses, Newton’s 3rd law states that if they arise from
