DOJ “Getting Very Close” to Indicting Trump, Says Bill Barr


Former US Attorney General Bill Barr believes the Department of Justice is “getting very close” to being able to indict President Donald Trump, he told Fox News Wednesday.

Barr made the comments while arguing against the appointment of a “special master” to ensure prosecutors don’t hold onto Trump’s personal materials alongside disputed documents.

He admitted that “there are people with agendas in the Department [of Justice].”

According to Barr, two major questions remain in the ongoing legal battle:

“Will the government be able to make out a technical case, will they have evidence by which — that they could indict somebody on, including him?”

“That’s the first question, and I think they’re getting very close to that point, frankly,” Barr noted.

“Barr’s remarks, delivered to Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” hosts Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino, came just a day after he claimed on another Fox program that the appointment of a special master – which many observers view as a victory for the Trump team – was actually “deeply flawed,” Infowars reported.

Infowars added:

Regardless of how Trump’s special master move holds up in court, according to Barr, “at the end of the day, there’s another question, [which] is do you indict a former president? What will that do to the country, what kind of precedent will that set?”

“And so you have to worry about those things, and I hope that those kinds of factors will incline the administration not to indict him, because I don’t want to see him indicted as a former president.”

But Barr conceded that he also thinks federal prosecutors will “be under a lot of pressure to indict [Trump], because — one question is, look, if anyone else would have gotten indicted, why not indict him?”
