Listen: William Bar, US Attorney And Attorney discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"This wire Democrats right now going so hard after attorney general William bar? Remember, they went after Jeff Sessions. He's a hack is Trump pack than they went after Matthew Whitaker who was in in the attorney general position after sessions briefly interim and then now they're going after William bar. William bar has a sterling track record William bar was the attorney general thirty years ago under George H W Bush, you know, the first Bush the Bush that all the Democrats are pretending that they really like now because he just died rumor that he was the attorney general for that guy, very well respected. But now they're pushing very hard against him. And the reason for it is that William bar is threatening to expose democrat wrongdoing during the Obama administration specifically with the opening of the Trump Russia investigation William bar has been signaling this for a little while now and the more. He signaled it the harder Democrats are going after him. We saw the preview here during those hearings that Barr had on with the Senate Judiciary committee here. Here's where he promised that he was going to get to the bottom of this Trump Russia investigation. Do you share my concerns about the size of warrant process? Yes. D- share my concerns about the counterintelligence investigation. How was opened in white was opened. Yes. You share my concerns that the professional lack of professionalism in the Clinton Email investigation, something we should all look at. Yes. You can't see it on camera here. But but you can't even hear it. I guess the microphones weren't turned on. But there are democrat heads exploding when attorney general bar was saying this because all of a sudden were no longer talking about the Muller investigation. We're no longer talking about Trump collusion or Trump obstruction or the thing that Donald Trump did thirty five years ago, or whatever. Now, we're talking about how did this investigation start? How did the Obama administration starts spying on the Trump campaign? Why did they do it? What was going on who acted wrongly who acted in a criminal manner? Finally, we're going to get to the bottom of that turning general bar has appointed a US attorney to examine the origins of that investigation. The attorney is charged to see if the investigation was lawful and appropriate to see if the spying was lawful and appropriate. If this is not a special counsel, but it might as well be. There's practically no real difference between whether bar had appointed a special counsel. Or if you just tasked this US attorney with it. And so it will the investigation will focus on how the government collected intelligence on Trump Russia, collusion, it'll focus on the spine. It's being led by guy named John Durham, John Durham, US attorney from Connecticut, he has got truly a stellar reputation. I mean, I think this is a big part of why he was appointed. He has served as a special prosecutor investigating wrongdoing by the national security officials by the agencies FBI CIA. He's been a DOJ lawyer since the early eighties, and this is. The important part. He has conducted investigations under both parties. So in one thousand nine hundred nine Attorney General Janet Reno had him investigate the FBI's handling of Whitey Bolger Whitey Bulger, the famous Massachusetts mob boss who was an informant for the FBI investigated. That's that was during the Clinton administration then during the Bush two administration in two thousand eight attorney General Michael Casey had him investigate the destruction of torture videos in two thousand five so I was under the Bush two administration then following year under the Obama administration. Attorney general Eric Holder had him investigate whether the CIA broke laws regarding the abuse of detainees. So this guy has total bipartisan credibility now. The question here is why did bar appoint this US attorney to investigate it. When we already have another investigation going on. There are now two investigations of the investigation going on. I know. That sounds confusing. But we have the this US attorney investigation that just began. We also have the inspector general investigation into how the Trump Russia investigation started. So we have the the watchdog for the DOJ is also investigating this. This is Michael Horowitz and Barr says that this report from the inspector general is going to be done in"
