Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has delivered his verdict on the Democrats’ now-debunked Russiagate scandal: It was “seditious.”
Specifically, he said, it was the Democrats’ attempt to derail the presidency of Donald Trump.
The National File reports Barr recently was interviewed by Glenn Beck of The Blaze.
He said, “I thought we were heading into a constitutional crisis. I think whatever you think of Trump, the fact is that the whole Russiagate thing was a grave injustice. It appears to be a dirty political trick that was used first to hobble him and then potentially to drive him from office.
“I believe it is seditious,” Barr said.
He did note, however, that sedition would be a hard case to prove in a court of law.
He explained, “It was a gross injustice, and it hurt the United States in many ways, including what we’re seeing in Ukraine these days. It distorted our foreign policy, and so forth.”
It was Barr who commissioned John Durham to work as a special counsel to investigate the Russiagate scandal.
“I was highly confident he would remain in office and they wouldn’t touch him,” Barr explained in the interview. “The Biden administration had no real interest in protecting either Hillary Clinton or Comey. And at the end of the day, for them to lose the capital and appear to be covering something up that would then never get resolved, I didn’t think was in their interest.”
Russiagate, evidence now has revealed, was spawned by Hillary Clinton in her attempt to divert the public’s attention from her own email scandal at the time. In fact, that’s what Barack Obama was briefed about the situation, reports have confirmed.
Through channels that were directed through law firms to distract from their purposes, her supporters made false claims to the FBI about Trump being linked to Russia through the Alfa Bank.
Her campaign also funded the “Steele dossier” compilation of false claims about Trump.
Durham already has obtained one guilty plea from an FBI agent who admitted altering evidence in order to continue the bureau’s investigation of Trump’s campaign.
But a Washington-based jury, including several fans of Hillary Clinton, acquitted her former campaign lawyer, Michael Sussmann, on a charge he lied to the FBI to push forward on the campaign of lies against President Trump.
He had claimed he was bringing information on Trump to the FBI on his own, when testimony at his trial revealed he was being paid by Clinton.
In fact, he admitted in a social media statement that that was the case, although that statement was not allowed as evidence at his trial because of a technicality.
The judge in Sussmann’s case also repeatedly issued rulings that handicapped Durham’s presentation of the case against Sussmann.
National File noted, “The basis for [special counsel Robert] Mueller’s Russia probe included numerous false statements from the FBI, FISA warrant abuse from the Obama DOJ and Clinton-funded opposition research that included actual Russian disinformation.”
Robert closed his years-long review without finding any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
