Attorney General Bill Barr ha claimed that the Durham investigation has uncovered that a group of people attempted to “topple the Trump administration.”
According to The Daily Wire:
During an interview last week, Attorney General William Barr gave an update on the criminal investigation into the origin of the Obama-era FBI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, saying that a “willful if small group of people” were involved in an attempt to “topple” the Trump administration.
Barr made the remarks in an interview with Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel in which he noted that he was “in a position in life where I can do the right thing and not really care about the consequences.”
Barr acknowledged that he understood why people were upset that results from the investigation were not released before the election, but noted that there were logistical issues that prevented that from happening, ranging from the pandemic delaying federal grand juries for six months to U.S. Attorney John Durham being forced to wait till the end of 2019 for Inspector General Michael Horowitz to complete his investigation into the FBI’s conduct. Barr suggested that those who seek justice should not lose heart just because Durham was not being loud in carrying out his business, saying that prosecutors who “break more china” do not “necessarily get the results.”
Barr said that the FBI’s conduct during their counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign was “outrageous.”
Barr stated that if he weaponized his position it would lead to every election having an investigation by the sitting administration in order to hurt their opponents claiming investigations would be weaponized.
