I think these things leak out. Note that the Dems have been claiming Barr has no “excuse” for foreign travel, he’s sneaking around etc. Releasing information like this helps refute those absurd accusations.
I’m not sure what good this will do. If the president asks Croatia for help with a law enfocement matter the Democrats will try to impeach him for that as well.
Yes it does make it plain that he is not joyriding on the taxpayer’s dime.
But it may also have another purpose; that is to jerk the ciminal’s chain.
Barr is far from stupid. He no doubt has taken note of what happens every time President Trump jerks their chain. Idiots like Biden, Clapper and Brennan go nuts and blab something incriminating.
