Fox News political analyst Brit Hume has a reminder for those who are demeaning and impugning the credibility and integrity of Attorney General William Barr.
Two words: Michael Avenatti.
When you hear people criticizing Attorney General Barr, check and see how they reacted to Michael Avenatti. That will give you an idea how seriously to take them as judges of lawyers and the law.

Shall we count the number of times the disgraced lawyer appeared on a Certain News Network?
Brent Bozell explains why CNN is having ‘a very, very bad day’; Avenatti was on how many times? https://t.co/zxEz1qpPv7

Remember when he had Brett Kavanaugh dead to rights?

And then there were the Democrats who were ready to nominate the guy.

The salivating over Avenatti was real and disgusting.
If you doubt how hard big players in the mainstream media fell for Michael Avenatti, watch this. You won’t know whether to laugh or cry. https://t.co/FMUReE6Zwu

Now, the same media wants to tell us that William Barr, who has experience in the Justice Department that spans nearly three decades, is not to be trusted.
Because they say so.

Of course, the Left was quick to point out that Michael Avenatti was not the attorney general.
I hope that people hold the Attorney General of the United States to a higher standard than any typical lawyer. https://t.co/WubSjfzzf6

Oh please. I didn’t approve of a lot of what Avenatti did – especially during the Kavanaugh hearings. But I sure as heck hold the Attorney General to a higher standard & one has nothing to do with the other – a ridiculous parallel. https://t.co/L84YOJhRdu

Um, why would you put those two on equal footing? One is the country’s top lawyer. The other is famous mostly for repping Stormy Daniels. https://t.co/UtVxoY609I

Which misses the entire point of the tweet.
Brit Hume did not make Michael Avenatti into a star.
The Left and the media did.
They gave a sleazy lawyer credibility when he should have had none because it could bring down Trump or Kavanaugh; and now they want to baselessly question William Barr’s credibility, also to bring down Trump.
