Statement By Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.
Wednesday, September 2, 2020


Attorney General William Barr used a quote of mine from the 1990’s out of context and a text out of context is a pretext for something else.
If Mr. Barr wants to know what I said in context, and is willing to talk with me and not just about me, we can have that conversation.  I look forward to talking with him.
