Bill Bar to publicly undercut conclusion that launch of Mueller probe was legit - not a 'witch hunt'

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/12/mueller-report-redux-bill-barr-is-about-to-undercut-a-report-on-the-origins-of-the-trump-kremlin-investigation/

Here we go again. A respected Justice official has spent months in an investigation into possible wrongdoing at the start of what became the special counsel’s probe, only to have Atty. Gen. William P. Barr moving to counter the results even before they are published.

The official this time is the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, but according to news reports, Barr is maneuvering behind the scenes to counter central conclusions that there was nothing major amiss in the start of the investigation of all-things-Russia.

. . .

The Inspector General is expected to say the call to launch an investigation was totally kosher—no “witch hunt,” as charged by Donald Trump and his team of defenders.


But Barr, who undercut the force of the Mueller Report before it came out last spring, apparently is telling associates within Justice that he personally disagrees with that conclusion. Barr is heavily invested in finding fault with the origins of the report, having separately hired Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to find evidence of wrongdoing, even criminal wrongdoing.

The report is due out next Monday. Sources within Justice have told both The Washington Post and The New York Times that Barr is rejecting Horowitz’s rationale for concluding that the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July 31, 2016.

2. Barr is a criminal.

He has violated his oath of office and needs to be disbarred.
