FOX: Barr says 'familiar names' among those DOJ is investigating in Durham probe, calls findings 'very troubling'
By Gregg Re 6-9-20
"We can't discuss future charges. But I have to say that I do find a little irritating," Barr said. "You know, the propensity in the American public on all sides of the political spectrum when they see something they think could be a criminal violation, I say, why hasn't this person been indicted again? And, you know, there's the old saying that that the wheels of justice grind slow and they do run slow because we have due process and we follow the process. But people should not draw from the fact that no action has been taken that taken yet, that that means that people or people are going to get away with wrongdoing."
The attorney general emphasized, however, that he wasn't concerned about criticisms of the Durham probe in an election year.
"For the first time in American history, the police organizations and the national security organizations were used to spy on a campaign and there was no basis for it," Barr said. "The media largely drove all kinds of sensational claims were being made about the president. That could have affected the election. And then and then later on in his administration, there were actions taken that really appear to be efforts to sabotage his campaign. And that has to be looked at. And if people want to say that I'm political because I am looking at those potential abuses of power, so be it. But that's the job of the attorney general."
