William Barr Sees ‘No Reason’ for Special Counsels for Hunter Biden, Election
"With President Donald Trump. Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said today he saw no reason. To appoint a special counsel to look into the president's claims of election front or attacks and the tax investigation into the son of President elect Joe Biden things that Trump has really been looking forward to try to prove by the way, because let's face it. The sad reality of this. I don't care what you think about whether or not There was any election fraud or anything when it came to the coverage of the election. The media. Was if you don't believe that the mainstream media is now in Kohut when it comes to what they will and will not report You're kidding yourself. You're a fool. That's all there is to it. They bent over backwards not to report anything that hunter Biden did. I mean, there was a lad, Can you imagine? ALF. I will eventually finish a sentence. Yes. Can you imagine? If Donald Trump Jr or Ivanka Trump or any of the trump Children, even Tiffany If any of them had left the laptop. At a repair shop forgot about it. And then the information that was on one about that was on it about Hunter. Biden came out about one of the trump kids, can you there would have been wall to wall coverage. They would have. They would have preempted the mast singer just to talk about the trump Children like that, But because it was hunter Biden. Not only did they not talk about it, they full on hit it. I mean, when you're not when it's when you've got something like that, right in your face when you've got a practically a full on admission that he is using his father's influence in order to financially benefit himself when there's pictures of him using drugs on a laptop. And you don't do anything about it when there's absolutely no reporting about that. Anywhere but fringe news organizations. I mean, come on. I don't even care what you think about it because you know that if it was one of the trump Children, and that was out there, there would have been like I said, Wall to wall coverage. There would have been exposes. They would have taken off regular programming and gone news wall. The wall there would have been. I mean, you would have been able to avoid it. As it stands unless you had a particular political bent. You would have had to go out of your way to find the actual information about Hunter Biden, So it's It's really kind of disgusting now in its final press conference Mar also broke with Trump in reinforcing that federal officials believe Russia was behind the cyber espionage operation targeting the U. S government government. Trump has suggested without evidence that China could be responsible Bar said the investigation and 100 Biden's financial dealings with being handled responsibly and professionally. He said. I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave. The reason that Trump wants a special counsel is because if there's a special counsel in investigating it It would make it more difficult for Biden to shut it down the way the investigation is right now, if when a Democratic age comes in, they can. They can shut it down and given the fact that pretty easily by the way, given the fact that what I was just saying that the mainstream media would wouldn't even touch the story with a 10 FT pole. If they shut the investigation down. If Biden the points is a ghee and gets in there, and the first thing they do is shut the investigation down. Odds are pretty good. You won't hear about it.

How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he.

"Attorney General William Barr is the country's top law enforcement officer a role that is meant to be above politics but critics argue that the Attorney General has gone out of his way to protect president trump they said the fact the bar delayed release of the mall report instead issuing a summary exonerating trump of wrongdoing and bar with how the whistleblowers complained about trump's phone call with Ukraine's president the one that eventually led to trump's impeachment and then this week when the attorney general's justice department intervened in the case of trump's longtime friend Roger stone the DOJ reduced prosecutors recommended prison time after stone was convicted of lying to Congress now the house Judiciary Committee wants answers and Attorney General Barr has agreed to testify next month George Terwilliger served as bill bars deputy in the early nineteen nineties and he joins us now on the line thank you so much for making time to talk with us this morning so I'll just ask you a big picture question first in his confirmation hearing last year Attorney General Barr said quote the role of the Attorney General is to keep the enforcement process sacrosanct from political influence do you think he has lived up to that you know I do and I I think what one way you can see that in the context Rachel of this particular matter concerning the stone sensing cases just take a a short step back and look at what is the in question here what we're talking about is a sentencing recommendation and in fact a sort of minor issue in that recommendation as to whether it's going to recommend a prison sentence of six years or why years and the Attorney General decided as truly the chief prosecutor that the recommendation that had come from the career prosecutors dedicated to the case and no doubt having strong feelings about it was excessive I don't think just because this is the case that is at the intersection of long politics that the Attorney General should refrain from acting where he sees a matter that he thinks deserves his attention as a as a professional matter not as a political matter well let me ask about the timing though because as you know president trump waiting directly on the sentencing recommendation that was handed down by a long time career prosecutors the president tweeted out quote this is a horrible and very unfair situation the real crimes were on the other side as nothing happens to them cannot allow this miscarriage of justice exclamation point so he tweeted that out in the early morning hours on February eleventh and then later that same day is when the attorney general's justice department intervene to decrease stone sentence is that just a coincidence or did the Attorney General choose the president over his own career prosecutors I don't think it's either and in fact it least in what I think is very credible and detailed reporting by The Washington Post the post is reporting that the decision to change the recommendation after the original filing was made on Monday evening and taking place over night before the president tweeted that's point number one point number two I would agree that it would perhaps be better if the president didn't tweet about matters of this nature that are before the justice department but on the other hand there is a level of transparency as to his position that might not otherwise be seen and number three I I think it's it's erroneous to characterize this is career prosecutors versus political again based on the public reporting there were career prosecutors in the US attorney's office in Washington who also questioned the original recommendation and while the US attorney apparently decided who is a political appointee to go along with the original recommendation at least initially there there were people career people on his staff who disagreed as well as apparently people of a career background on the staff at the leadership positions in the justice department's the president also sent another tweet congratulating the Attorney General for quote taking charge of a case that was totally out of his control so I mean even the if if if you argue that bars intervention was appropriate is it a problem for bar even just in terms of optics that you have the the president congratulating him on interfering in this way yes it is that that's a that's a fine point but I think when one agrees to serve in any presidential administration you take your presidents as you find them and you know this president does tend to speak out and it again I'd say there's a certain level of transparency to the public that there this isn't some nixonian behind the scenes improper influence I do think it would be if the president would be better advised to refrain on some of these things but he also I think feels very strongly that for three years in his administration he was hounded by a case under the special counsel that that really went no where at the end of the day and then a lot of people got lots of indictments as you know including well done but not no indictments that had anything to do with Russian collusion and which was the point of the investigative exercise to begin with they were they were status crimes and process crimes having to do with the investigation and I certainly am not expressing any sympathy for Mr stone or his position I don't think the Attorney General is either after all he is saying look we agree should go to prison it's just a question of for how long I'm gonna play a tape if if you can indulge me of of David Laughlin he ran the justice department's counter intelligence section from twenty fourteen to twenty eighteen and he has a different point of view than you do let's listen to this and then we'll talk on the other side of the implications are two fold one it that reflects a further corrosion of the intrinsic integrity of the department of justice itself in its processes worst perhaps it corrodes public confidence in the integrity and independence of the department of justice and if the public loses faith in the department of justice as an independent arbiter of the rule of law that we have lost something sacred in this country in seconds remaining I apologize for that what's your response I I agree that it's very important to maintain public confidence in the integrity of the justice department's justice department's functions and the more free from political interference that those functions are the better but hi there at the same time I don't think that can override the responsibility of the leadership of the justice department to in appropriate cases step in and do what they do I hope very much that when the Attorney General gets an opportunity in front of the house Judiciary Committee or otherwise to explain what he's doing that the public will be reassured okay George Terwilliger he served in the justice department for fifteen years we appreciate your time this morning this is NPR news and programming now note more about that topic coming up on KQED on forum at nine this morning on KQED public radio now to the topic of traffic.
