a) "Shocked and surprised" is the level one, right before lawyering up and going radio silent "on advice of counsel."When Barr did learn of the Ukraine call, he was “surprised and angry” to discover he had been lumped in with Giuliani, to a person familiar with Barr’s thinking told The Associated Press. @MikeBalsamo1 on the blurred lines between Barr and Rudy. https://t.co/X9UNoSVyPy— Julie Pace (@jpaceDC) September 28, 2019
b) If it's true instead of cliche, then Barr is a dumbass. He knows who he's working for and how business gets done; which means
c) either way he's screwed, and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
