    Former Attorney General Bill Barr pushed back against the claims that former President Trump’s trials will interfere with the 2024 election, calling them “simply wrong.” “The basic principle in the criminal justice system is if a prominent person commits a crime and they’re seeking office, that doesn’t give them immunity,” Barr said on Fox News’s “America Reports.” “If there’s enough time to have it resolved before the election, it should be resolved.” Barr was also shown a clip of Republican presidential candidate and Trump critic Chris Christie saying earlier this week that Trump’s “conduct” and “insistence on continuing to run...

By 1979 Barr was a golden boy during George Herbert Walker Bush’s political rise from CIA director to vice president to president on Jan. 20, 1989.

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr has floated the idea of home detention for Donald Trump should he be convicted of criminal conspiracy or classified documents crimes – raising the prospect of a former president serving time at a gilded prison he terms the 'winter White House.' Barr made the comment in yet another revealing interview where he spoke about his departure from the Trump White House amid Trump's election overturn effort, and argued the former president was not entitled to 'immunity' during his reelection bid. Trump's lawyers argued in a new filing to push his trial date in the January...

    Washington — Former Attorney General WIlliam Barr dismissed the argument that the election interference case against former President Donald Trump is not valid because his statements were protected by the First Amendment."It's certainly a challenging case, but I don't think it runs afoul of the First Amendment," Barr told "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "From a prosecutor's standpoint, I think it's a legitimate case." (snip) Barr declined to say whether he was interviewed by the special counsel during the investigation, but said he would "of course" appear as a witness if called.The former attorney general, who resigned from the Trump...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he was willing to testify against former President Donald Trump at his January 6 trial. Anchor Major Garrett asked, “Were you interviewed by the special counsel?” Barr said, “I’m not going to go into that.” Would you appear as a witness if called?” Barr said, “Of course.” Garrett said, “One of those associated with Trump’s defense team has said, if you were called as a witness, they would cross-examine you and pierce all of that by asking you questions that you couldn’t, to their mind, credibly answer...

    Bill Barr enjoys talking about the weaponized DOJ as if the DOJ was not weaponized. Bill Barr is a very dangerous figure in the government weaponization process, and he had a lot of people fooled for a long time. Fortunately, he didn’t fool me and many of you remember exactly why.Additionally, during my 2020 trip to DC, it was specific suspicions about Bill Barr that necessitated going directly into the system. Through research and eventually a stroke of luck, I was able to trace the people Attorney General Barr assigned to review the Trump-Russia collusion nonsense. I found the people...

    During an interview with PBS aired on Thursday’s broadcast of “PBS NewsHour,” former Attorney General Bill Barr stated that current Attorney General Merrick Garland can’t distance himself from the charging decisions on Hunter Biden and told him, “You own the decision. The decision has to be right in your judgment as Attorney General.” Barr stated, “I do think that Garland — Attorney General Garland, should — I think he needs to act swiftly to deal with the Hunter Biden thing, because I think it’s hurting the department a great deal. And I don’t think it’s possible for an Attorney General...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr warned Republicans to “be careful” of getting caught in former President Trump’s “carnage,” after the property manager of his Mar-a-Lago resort was added to the classified documents case last week. Mar-a-Lago property manager Carlos de Oliveira was charged in Thursday’s superseding indictment, alongside Trump aide and co-defendant Walt Nauta, for allegedly helping the former president attempt to delete surveillance footage at the resort. “Loyalty is a one-way street for [Trump],” Barr told CNN Wednesday night. “And in many ways, these two people down in Mar-a-Lago represent many Republicans who feel that they have to man...

    Former Attorney General William Barr believes the Justice Department has a “legitimate case” in the latest indictment against former President Donald Trump, who is accused of spreading lies about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. In a Wednesday night interview on CNN, Barr, who served a stint as the nation’s chief law enforcement under Trump, also said he has grown to believe that Trump has always known that he legitimately lost his White House reelection bid. “As a legal matter I don’t see a problem with the indictment,” Barr told “The Source” host Kaitlan Collins. “I think that it’s...

    Only four of the once-Cabinet members for former President Donald Trump publicly said they would support his reelection in 2024, according to a new report. Several strongly oppose his campaign, some are even working against his bid to become the GOP nominee and many didn't respond to requests to comment on his efforts. Former Attorney General Bill Barr has some of those most harsh words for his ex-boss, telling NBC News: 'I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump.' 'I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it,' he added...

    Constitutional attorney Jonathan Turley, a George Washington law professor known for his liberal views, expressed his shock that the FBI hid an FD-1023 informant document corroborating investigators’ findings that Joe and Hunter Biden appear to have benefited from an international bribery scheme. Turley appeared on Fox News Sunday with Shannon Bream and brilliantly laid out why the FBI’s reluctance to release the lightly redacted document to the public is so problematic. Transcript follows below: BREAM: The FD-1023 form that Senator Grassley released, the FBI was not happy about that. They said that it actually could create danger and safety issues...

    Grassley highlighted the numerous ways Delaware Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf appeared to have obstructed the investigation into Hunter Biden’s potentially criminal business activities. Delaware assistant U.S. attorney was briefed in October 2020 that a confidential human source (CHS) had reported Hunter and Joe Biden each received $5 million in bribes, Sen. Chuck Grassley revealed Sunday in a letter to Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss. A source familiar with that briefing has now confirmed to The Federalist that the Pittsburgh office told the Delaware office the CHS’s reporting appeared credible and merited further investigation. That added detail increases the significance...
  • Hunter Biden's former business partner was willing to go before a grand jury. He never got the chance.

    A former business partner of Hunter and James Biden, who worked directly with them on a 2017 China energy deal, was never asked to testify to a Delaware grand jury investigating Hunter Biden, two sources familiar with the discussions tell CBS News. Tony Bobulinski, the former business partner, was open to testifying, and his attorney reached out to the office of Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss. Weiss did not return their calls, the sources said. Weiss' decision not to bring Bobulinski is the latest indication that prosecutors investigating Hunter Biden may have avoided investigating allegations about his father, President Joe...

    “I made it clear that neither President Obama nor Vice President Biden were in Durham’s crosshairs,” explains William Barr, the Attorney General who tapped John Durham to investigate the Russia collusion hoax against candidate and President Donald Trump. In One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General, Barr also praises Robert Mueller and deputy attorney general Rob Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller to investigate Trump. “Few can appreciate the complexities Rod faced during that tumultuous time,” writes Barr, “and even fewer will know the important contributions he made to the administration and the country.” The allegedly heroic Rosenstein gets...

Trump has dismissed the investigation, led by President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, as “partisan” and a “witch hunt.”Now Barr, who has already been critical of his former boss, said he’d be willing to testify against Trump if asked by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is leading the federal action against...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Monday the indictment against his former boss Donald Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents is “entirely of his own making” and “not the result of unfair government prosecution.” “For the sake of the country, our party, and a basic respect for the truth, it is time that Republicans come to grips with the hard truths about President Trump’s conduct and its implications,” Barr wrote in an article for The Free Press. “The effort to present Trump as a victim in the Mar-a-Lago document affair is cynical political propaganda.” The former AG went on to...
