Now that Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year Russia collusion probe has ended with no evidence of wrongdoing by the Trump campaign, Democrats have turned their pitchforks on Attorney General Bill Barr.
On Friday, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) questioned whether Barr may have “obstructed justice” when he released a partial summary of Mueller’s confidential report.
“If it turns out that he has obstructed justice by how he has handled the Mueller report, that will be a deep stain in his legacy,” Johnson said.
