I wonder what Barr is doing. This seems like day trading to me. The DOJ argument from this ruling, that the House hasn't started impeachment was so ridiculous I'm surprised the DOJ put that in a brief. If Barr's goal is to strengthen the Presidency, I would assume he would fight battles with arguments that are actually rational or have a chance of winning. By fighting these battles, making these vacuous arguments and forcing rulings on issues that haven't been decided, he may actually be weakening the Presidency. Or does he think the Roberts court will side with him with these type of arguments.
The House is investigating President Donald Trump's pressuring of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as other issues.
