AG Barr Rips Russiagate Attempted Coup

April 10, 2020 (EIRNS)—Attorney General William Barr told Fox News Thursday that the Russiagate scam “started without any basis,” and that when it continued after Trump’s inauguration, it was an attempt to “sabotage the Presidency”—very close to calling it what it was: an attempted coup, carried out by Obama Administration intelligence officials in league with British MI6 operatives.

The earlier report by Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General David Horowitz, while pointing to serious wrong-doing by the FBI and DOJ, claimed that the investigation had been started without bias, but that “mistakes” were made.

AG Barr does not agree: “My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just ‘mistakes’ or sloppiness,” he said. “There was something far more troubling here; and we’re going to get to the bottom of it. And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted.

“I think the President has every right to be frustrated,” he added, “because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history.

“Even more concerning, actually, is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was President,” Barr said, “to sabotage the Presidency, or at least have the effect of sabotaging the Presidency.”
