...and surveillance components from Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber, whose work was put on hold pending DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s findings from his ongoing review. Huber, Barr said, was essentially on standby in case Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally.
Many Freepers have criticized Huber for ‘doing nothing’.
I don’t think everyone gets the importance and protection that being ‘put on hold’ gave Huber. It’s not like he needed to do any more investigation. By being put on hold, the ‘evidence’ he has stays in his hands. No one can ‘leak’ the info to the media.
Huber was a Big Nothing, tasked by a recused AG, answering to a two faced chinless DAG and put on hold for a whitewashing IG.
Bar was just being nice to Huber. Huber’s office “lost” the documents from Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, TWICE; and had to ask for another copy before he was to appear before the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.
In essence, Barr fired him from the investigation because he was covering up the corruption by doing nothing.
