The interview wasn't about the Ukraine investigation.
Democrats and their allies are getting desperate.

You are the one who is getting desperate, Jeff, and showing your true GOP-always-and-forever colors in the process:
Williams helps Barr continue to cover up his role in the Ukraine investigation
First, consider the exchange that Williams and Barr have to exonerate the Attorney General in involvement in Rudy Giuliani's Ukraine conspiracy.
Williams: Were you ever asked by the White House to talk to anybody in Ukraine about an investigation of Joe Biden? (18:40)
Williams: Are you concerned that Ukraine has a missing server from the Hillary Clinton emails?
Barr [searching look]: Fortunately I haven't gotten into the Ukraine thing. I don't know. I'm not even sure about the nature of these allegations.
Williams: What about the allegation that it was the Ukrainians who meddled in the election, not the Russians. Are you satisfied that's not the case?
Barr: I am confident the Russians attempted to interfere in the election. I don't know about the Ukrainians. I haven't even looked into it, frankly.
Williams: What was your involvement in the Department's decision not to investigate the President's phone call to Ukraine?
Barr: We put out a statement that explained the process, which was the Criminal Division made that decision and in the process consulted with the senior most career employees who are the experts on campaign finance laws and that process was supervised by the Deputy but I'm not going to go beyond what we've already said about that process.
Williams: Well, were you satisfied that everything that was done--
I wouldn't be surprised if Williams were using a script DOJ gave him, because Williams asks none of the questions that remain unanswered about DOJ's role in the Ukraine investigation, such as why they didn't do the bare minimum of connecting the dots implemented after 9/11, why the didn't refer the complaint to the FEC, why they didn't abide by the whistleblower protection act, why (on demand, apparently) they issued a statement exonerating the President, or who the three Ukrainians that DOJ admitted have been fed into John Durham's investigation are.
Instead, Williams lets Barr ignore his question about his role in reviewing the whistleblower complaint and claim " as the person who knew of the Lev Parnas investigation that also knew of the whistleblower complaint " he has no role in the Ukraine thing. This exchange raises more questions about Barr's involvement, but Williams instead allows him to claim a clean bill of health.
