Ex-Attorney General William Barr said in an interview this week that former President Donald Trump was “vindicated” by special counsel John Durham’s report on the origins of the FBI’s investigation into him and that Trump was right from the start regarding what the Left had been attempting to do to him.
Durham found “sobering” discrepancies in the FBI’s approach to the Trump inquiry compared to previous politically sensitive investigations and ruled that the FBI had no evidence to warrant beginning the investigation.
In an interview with Fox News presenter Bret Baier, Barr characterized Durham’s report as a “success” since it revealed the truth and prompted reforms at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), despite the fact that more reforms are still necessary.
Barr said that the media, the FBI, Hillary Clinton, and her campaign were all to blame for the falsehoods that fueled the conspiracy idea for years and prompted several investigations, resulting in tens of millions of taxpayer dollars wasted.
Barr has said that despite his disagreements with the previous president, he thinks the latter had wonderful ideas and deserved much of the recognition for what he did.
Barr claimed that he agreed with Trump that the Durham report would benefit him in the short term but did not think Trump would win the nomination. The massive mobilization that would occur solely to vote against Trump would wipe away the Republican majority in Congress even if he won.
Former President Trump responded to former Attorney General Bill Barr, who said the United States would descend into ‘chaos’ and become a ‘horror show’ should the Republican be re-elected.
Trump said on Truth Social that Barr was a weak and slovenly man who didn’t want to deal with examining the widespread voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 election cycle.
