Release the hounds!
WASHINGTON, DC: Attorney General William Barr gave two interviews yesterday in which he laid out the case for extreme irregularities that amounted to extensive criminal behavior on the part of the leadership of the FBI and US Intelligence agencies. Barr gave unqualified support for US Attorney John Durham’s investigation of the coup plotters.
Barr makes clear that criminal behavior occurred
He also laid out the case that exposes criminal conduct by a cabal of anti-Trump officials. Officials at the very top of the Obama Administration.
“I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press,” Barr said. “I think there were gross abuses …and inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI.”
“I think that leaves open the possibility that there was bad faith.”
Barr contradicted the finding of no political bias in the IG Report of Michael Horowitz. (Read: The Justice Department’s inspector general report on the Russia investigation) He inferred that bias was readily apparent, pervasive, and resulted in illegal activity.
“All he (Horowitz) said was, people gave me an explanation and I didn’t find anything to contradict it … he hasn’t decided the issue of improper motive,” Barr says. “I think we have to wait until the full investigation is done.”
