Attorney General Bill Barr isn’t one to back down from a fight. And his recent comments won’t change his reputation.
While the left is spreading the narrative that every facet of their impeachment effort is on the level, Barr is responding like only Barr can.
In an interview with NBC, Barr dropped a bombshell: he thinks the FBI may have acted in “bad faith” when it first initiated its investigation of Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.
On its own, Barr’s statement is a massive attack on the left’s description of the impeachment grounds.
But Barr didn’t stop there:
“I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press, I think there were gross abuses…and inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI.”
Barr blasted the unprecedented investigation, noting it was the first time in history that “counterintelligence techniques” have been used against a presidential campaign.
If the FBI wasn’t feeling the burn by then, Barr’s next statement turned up the heat.
“There was and never has been any evidence of collusion,” Barr said, “and yet this campaign and the president’s administration has been dominated by this investigation into what turns out to be completely baseless.”
The left won’t stop but it’s good to remember that the presence of an investigation doesn’t mean anything. Trump’s opponents want America to remember the old saying “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” But the only fire I see is the pants-on-fire of the left-wing, anti-Trump impeachment effort.
