Attorney General Bill Barr said Monday he does not expect U.S. Attorney John Durhams review into the origins of the Russia probe will lead to a criminal investigation of either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden -- while noting that their concern of potential criminality in the conduct of that probe is focused on others.
Barr, during a press conference otherwise focused on the December 2019 shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, spoke at length about the Durham investigation. He said he has a general idea of how the investigation is going and confirmed that some aspects are being investigated as potential crimes.
Barr did say, however, that not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime.
As for President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement based on what I know, I dont expect Durhams work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man, Barr said. Our concern of potential criminality is focused on others.

Unindicted coconspirator... Part 2.
I actually don’t have a problem with this, as doing otherwise could set a precedent that would be followed by every incoming Democrat administration—investigate and indict their predecessors. I do, however, think that everybody else involved, no matter how far up or down the foodchain, needs to swing for this.
But perhaps a flunky will eventually say he was just following orders. Perhaps that comes later.
Of course not; still waiting for the indictment and arrest of anyone who is a prominent coup plotter. Waiting. Waiting...
They are “made men” in the Deep State Mafia.
You're probably right, but if the evidence points to his "collusion", a retroactive impeachment might be in order...
Doesn’t mean that they might have Obama and Biden on other crimes - drugs, human trafficking, money laundering, etc.
It's good to have dreams.
Softly softly catchee monkey...
Barr has been a Deep State coverup man from the start. That Trump named him right after he and the Bush family got all lovey-dovey after Poppy’s funeral and then Rick Wiles reported that he was told that Barr getting AG was part of the deal between the families to make sure nothing from the Bushes came out or that the Trump investigation went too far made perfect sense. It was suggested their might be some low-level sacrificial scalp, but nothing serious.
And that is exactly how it has played out in the 16-plus months since.
Well, as long as Barr remains suitably appalled, I guess I’m okay with that. By the way, whatever happened to his Epstein investigation?
BARR IS THE DEEP STATE.
Prove me wrong by indicting anyone, Bob.
Unless the major players are actually impeached and found guilty, they will in any case simply be pardoned by the next friendly president.
Let the CAPOS go - and get the “made” men....right?
You think Rats aren’t going after Trump AND US in January 2025?
Barr just gave Obama authorization to lie about Russia Collusion for the next 20 years.
