Attorney General William Barr went scorched earth on the rogue deep state over the weekend and revealed that the “rules were being changed” when it pertained to investigating President Donald Trump.
While speaking with The Wall Street Journal, Barr was asked about his handling of the Mueller report and claims from Democrats that he is trying to shield the president.
Barr didn’t take the bait and appeared to imply that the Obama administration was changing the rules to go after Trump.
“I felt the rules were being changed to hurt Trump, and I thought it was damaging for the presidency over the long haul,” Barr said.
“At every grave juncture the presidency has done what it is supposed to do, which is to provide leadership and direction,” Barr added. “If you destroy the presidency and make it an errand boy for Congress, we’re going to be a much weaker and more divided nation.”
Democrats are desperate after the Mueller report completely vindicated Trump and ended the Russia collusion hoaxes.
Now, Democrats are trying to get Mueller to testify as a last ditch effort to keep investigating non-existent Trump-Russia collusion.
But Barr isn’t afraid of Democrats and made it clear that Mueller is more than welcome to testify if he wants to.
“It’s Bob’s call whether he wants to testify,” Barr told The Wall Street Journal.
Barr has been busy lately actually doing real work, which is the opposite of what many Democrats have been doing.
Last week, it was revealed that the attorney general appointed a federal prosecutor to investigate how the Russia witch hunt began and whether the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016 was legal.
Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry.
“The inquiry will focus on whether the government’s methods to collect intelligence relating to the Trump campaign were lawful and appropriate,” the report said.
Durham is reportedly known as a “hard-charging, bulldog prosecutor.”
Last month, Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Barr said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.
The president has been completely vindicated after the two-year Russia witch hunt.
Barr and Mueller have made it clear that there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
But now the tables have turned — and Barr is honoring his pledge to investigate those who started the Russia witch hunt.
Some Obama officials are likely very worried about this and what will be uncovered.
