Ask former President Barack Obama, and he continues to play dumb about the allegations of his administration spying on President Donald Trump.
But Attorney General William Barr finally made a major announcement about the allegations levied against Obama and his cronies.
And what he had to say will forever tarnish Obama and his administration.
As first reported by The Daily Wire, Barr told reporters on Monday that the actions taken by Obama-era officials in federal law enforcement and in the Intelligence Community against President Donald Trump were “unprecedented in American history” and represented a “grave injustice.”
“I’ve commented since I have been attorney general and even during my confirmation hearings that over the past few decades, there have been increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon,” Barr said. “And as long as I’m attorney general, the criminal justice system will not be used for partisan political ends.”
“And what happened to the president and I’ve said this many times, what happened to the president in the 2016 election and throughout the first two years of his administration was abhorrent,” Barr continued. “It was a grave injustice and it was unprecedented in American history. The law enforcement and intelligence apparatus of this country were involved in advancing a false and utterly baseless Russian collusion narrative against the president.”
“The proper investigative and prosecutive standards of the department of justice were abused, in my view, in order to reach a particular result,” Barr continued. “We saw two different standards of justice emerge, one that applied to President Trump and his associates and the other that applied to everybody else. We can’t allow this ever to happen again. The Durham investigation is trying to get to the bottom of what happened, and it will determine whether there were any federal laws broken. And if there were, those who broke the laws will be held to account.”
We couldn’t agree more! It’s about time Obama was called out for his actions.
