Attorney General William Barr said America has extremist groups on”both sides trying to spin up violence” promising more arrests during a new interview on Fox News where he also discussed the Durham Report and the examination of the Russia investigation.
“We have extreme right groups trying to look like extreme left groups. We have extreme left groups masquerading as extreme right groups. We have players on both sides trying to spin up violence. So it’s a complicated situation.” Barr said, as riots and looters have high-jacked the George Floyd rallies and protests.
Host anchor Bret Baier in the Tuesday night interview about the troubling finding in the U.S. Attorney John Durham report and the
Turning the page here to the Durham report and wondering when that is going to come out. You’re now a few months away from an election and there’s some expectation that there’s going to be at least some bombshells in there about the investigation of the investigation into Trump collusion origins of the Russia investigation.
“I can’t address expectations. I can say that even with the disruption of Covid and the fact that our court system is essentially been shut down for a few months, the Durham team has been working very aggressively to move forward,” Barr explained. “And as I’ve also said, this isn’t being driven by producing a report. We are trying to get to a point where we can hold accountable anyone who crossed the line and committed a criminal violation. So that’s, I think, what would be the initial stage of a resolution of Durham’s investigation. But I also think that there will be public disclosure and some form of reporters at by appropriate.”
Barr was quiet on charges and projecting too much before expressing deep concerns.
“I think we’re concerned about the motive force behind the very aggressive investigation that was launched into the Trump campaign without, you know, with a very thin, slender reed as a basis for it. It seemed that the bureau was sort of spring loaded at the end of July to drive in there and investigate a campaign…”
The Attorney General briefly mentioned the “setup” of Michael Flynn to lead to stronger evidence to lead to damaging information on President Trump.
“…The other area of concern is that after the election, even though they were closing down some of that, as we’ve seen in the Flynn case, and say there’s nothing here, for some reason, they went right back at it, even at a time where the evidentiary support or claim support like the dossier was falling apart. And it’s very hard to understand why they continued to push and even make public testimony that they had an investigation going when it was becoming painfully obvious or should have been obvious to anyone that there was nothing there.”
