Comey's theory's (CNN Town meeting) is that Barr is no fool, and Barr does see Trump as a con man, idiot, and a total fuckup, but Barr is willing become like Trump in order to keep Trump from doing really bad shit that truly would mean the end of the Republican party.
Comey's theory is that Barr perceives himself as unsung hero that is keeping Trump contained within acceptable boundaries, and adopting Trump's language because it feeds Trump's massive hungry ego to hear powerful men such as Barr use phrases\words like "FBI is spying on Donald Trump" or "There was no collusion". Barr is on Trump's team. When Trump hears Barr talking like him, its like a shot of heroin into Trump's ego system. Comey's theory is that Barr understands Trump is an ego junkie, so Barr feeds Trump ego on a regular basis, but it also means Barr is fucking over congress (and the country) at the same time with the rationalization that Congress will outlast Trump in the long run, but if someone does not contain Trump, the Republican party could be destroyed by 2020.
Unless Trump launches nuclear weapons, the US will survive the Trump era, but Trump very well could destroy the entire Republican party by making it the party of wackos, racists, sexist, homophobes, etc. Centris Repubublican voters either form a new party, or they become swing voters like Democratic swing voters who are left leaning moderates.
In otherwords, Comey is suggesting that Barr is a spy that gotten into Trump's inner circle.
