Yes, Trump Obstructed Justice. And William Barr Is Helping Him Cover It Up

25 days ago   |   By The New Republic

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee leaders on Sunday , Attorney General William Barr revealed that he would not charge President Trump with obstruction of justice over his efforts to thwart the investigation into whether his campaign conspired with Russia to swing the 2016 election. In order to do so, Barr performed a remarkable gimmick that allowed him to not only break promises he made during his confirmation process, but also gloss over the crimes that Trump is suspected of committing.

The president is not a crook. That's the six-word précis of Attorney General William P. Barr's four-page summary of the still- to-be-paginated report by special counsel Robert S.

Attorney General William Barr's conclusion that Trump did not obstruct justice in the Russia probe is taking heat as Democrats accuse him of bias

25 days ago   |   By Business Insider

Attorney General William Barr determined in his summary on Sunday that President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice in the FBI's Russia investigation.
