Carrey’s latest artwork depicted Barr awash in a hellish red hue.

In an accompanying message, Carrey wrote, “Most crooked AG ever – Barr none!”

Although Mueller’s team was unable to establish that President Trump was guilty of any crimes, it laid out evidence that Trump repeatedly committed acts capable of exerting “undue influence” over both the Russian-interference and obstruction investigations.’

Barr has come under criticism with regard to the Mueller report, including from “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert, who accused Barr of telling a “baldfaced lie.”

During Thursday’s episode of “The Late Show,” Colbert noted a point in a news conference Thursday when Barr was asked if Mueller’s reason for not deciding whether Trump obstructed justice was related to the Justice Department’s longstanding guidance that a sitting president can’t be indicted. Barr said that “we specifically asked” and that Mueller said it had nothing to do with it.

    2020 Vision Monday: Polls show a 17-point swing toward impeaching Trump, which could drag down his reelection bid

    As of three weeks ago, a majority of Americans — 51.1 percent, on average — opposed impeaching President Trump. As of today, opposition to impeachment has plummeted 7 percentage points (to 44 percent) and support has climbed nearly 10 points (to 49.8 percent), according to FiveThirtyEight's preliminary polling tracker. It still seems unlikely, although perhaps slightly less so, that Senate Republicans will ever abandon Trump and vote to remove him from office, even if most voters eventually want them to.

    Dutch police discover family locked away for years on farm

    Dutch police acting on a tip-off discovered six young adult siblings who had apparently spent years locked away in a secret room in an isolated farmhouse waiting for the end of time, local broadcasters reported on Tuesday. The six, aged 16 to 25, lived with their 58-year-old father near Ruinerwold, a village in the northern province of Drenthe, and had no contact with the outside world, RTV Drenthe reported. Police officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

    Pope's bodyguard resigns over new financial leaks scandal

    The Vatican's latest scandal claimed its first victim Monday as Pope Francis' chief bodyguard resigned over the leak of a Vatican police flyer identifying five employees who were suspended as part of a financial investigation. The Vatican said its police chief, Domenico Giani, bore no responsibility for the leaked flyer but resigned to avoid disrupting the investigation and "out of love for the church and faithfulness" to the pope. Giani, a 20-year veteran of the Vatican's security services, has stood by Francis' side and jogged alongside his popemobile during hundreds of public appearances and foreign trips.

    In Jamal Khashoggi's death, Saudi money is talking louder than murder

    Anyone interested in what it looks like to get away with murder should peruse the attendee list for Saudi Arabia's flashy "Davos in the Desert" this month. Vaporizing into the desert heat is all the righteous alarm that compelled leading financial firms to boycott the event last year out of concern that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, weeks before, had ordered the grisly killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Attending this year's extravaganza are executives of JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, all of them institutions selected to underwrite the kingdom's highly anticipated, partial public offering of its oil company, Aramco, valued $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion.

    When police misconduct occurs, records often stay secret. One mom's fight to change that.

    Furious about the way she was treated, she worked with other families whose relatives were killed by police to help push for the recent passage of California's new Senate Bill 1421, which as of January 1 overrides decades of precedent and requires police departments to open internal investigation records related to deadly force and police wrongdoing. The law could inspire reform at police departments across the nation at a time when the relationship between police and the public is fraught with tension following numerous fatal shootings, particularly involving victims of color.

    India blocks SMS services in Kashmir after trucker killed

    Text messaging services were blocked in Indian Kashmir just hours after being restored when a truck driver was killed by suspected militants and his vehicle set ablaze, authorities said Tuesday. Separately, Indian officials said a 24-year-old woman died in the latest exchange of artillery fire with Pakistan over their de-facto border dividing the blood-soaked Himalayan region. Three people -- a father and his two children aged 10 and 11 -- were killed in a Pakistani district next to the Line of Control after mortar shells hit their homes, officials said on Tuesday.

    Get Ready To Fall In Love With This First-Generation Z/28 Camaro

    Representing the last year run of the first-generation of the F-Body platform, this 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 is a numbers matching car with a lot of important things to note about it. This Camaro has a mere 17,800 miles on the clock since new, and has plenty of life left in it as a street machine, or a show car. Adding to the rarity of this being a 1968 Camaro Z28 trim, is the fact that the car is also a 10 Black Paint coded car with hounds tooth interior - making this a very rare gem.

    Climate change researchers recommend banning all frequent flyer reward programs to cut carbon emissions by targeting jet-setters

    A new report commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change, the UK government's official climate-change advisers, has called for a ban on all frequent flyer reward programs to discourage people from traveling by air so much. Researchers from Imperial College London, who wrote the report, said that just 15% of the entire British population take 70% of all flights from the country. The report also called for an "air miles levy" to punish people who fly long distances, which would target those who rack up the most air miles, rather than people who travel shorter distances.

    'Five Eyes' in the dark: Will Trump and Barr destroy trust in U.S. intelligence?

    In the phone call at the center of the House impeachment inquiry, Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and advanced several conspiracy theories that cast doubt on former special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The president also directly implicated Attorney General William Barr in the campaign. I would like you to do us a favor, though, because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it.

    Nigerian police rescue 67 from 'inhuman' conditions at Islamic 'school'

    Police in northern Nigeria rescued nearly 70 men and boys from a second purported Islamic school where they were shackled and subjected to "inhuman and degrading treatments." The raid in Katsina, the northwestern home state of President Muhammadu Buhari, came less than a month after about 300 men and boys were freed from another supposed Islamic school in neighboring Kaduna state where they were allegedly tortured and sexually abused. "In the course of investigation, sixty-seven persons from the ages of 7 to 40 years were found shackled with chains," Katsina police spokesman Sanusi Buba said in a statement.

    Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hours

    Russia on Monday denied a US newspaper report that its warplanes bombed four hospitals in rebel-held territory in Syria over a period of 12 hours this year. The Russian defence ministry rubbished the claim in a report by The New York Times, saying "the alleged 'evidence' provided by the NYT is not worth even the paper it was printed on". The May strikes -- which the newspaper tied to Moscow through Russian radio recordings, plane spotter logs and accounts by witnesses -- are part of a larger pattern of medical facilities targeted by forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's devastating civil war.

Now, it seems Scaramucci has decided on his dream candidate, and has launched a website and line of T-shirts to persuade him to run.

    The former US national security adviser, John Bolton, was reportedly so alarmed at a back-channel effort to pressure Ukraine to investigate Donald Trump's political rivals that he told a senior aide to report it to White House lawyers. The revelation of Bolton's involvement in the effort to block a shadow foreign policy aimed at Trump's political benefit emerged from congressional testimony given by his former aide, Fiona Hill, the former top Russia expert in the White House.

    Last year, the state's attorney's office started reviewing court cases involving at least 25 Baltimore police officers because of misconduct charges against them. Prosecutors recently began asking the courts to vacate nearly 800 convictions that involved testimony or investigations by these officers – and more could be coming as the office continues to gather information. More than 530 Baltimore police officers have been added to an internal notification system, and defense attorneys are contacted if those officers are considered by prosecutors as witnesses.

The announcement on Sunday came as the United States ordered the withdrawal of almost its entire ground force in Syria. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the move to withdraw 1,000 US troops came after Washington learned that Turkey was pressing further into Syria than expected.
