Barr Reveals Suspicious Action Taken By Comey, Blasts FBI For Shady Actions With Anti-Trump Dossier

on

In an interview with Pete Williams AG Bill Barr blasted the FBI on their use of the shady unverified Hillary dossier.

He also destroyed the narrative that James Comey put out that Horowitz exonerated him.

The truth is Horowitz could not question Comey because he had not renewed his security clearance, making it impossible for Horowitz to make contact with him.

That seems a little suspicious since a security clearance can make you big bucks.

Williams asked Barr “So, the inspector general says he found no evidence to indicate that the FBI’s decision to start the investigation was based on political bias. Do you agree?

Barr: “Well, what he actually — I think you have to understand what the IG’s methodology is. I think it’s the appropriate methodology for an inspector general. He starts with limited information. He can only talk to people who are essentially there as employees and he’s limited to the information generally in the FBI,” Barr responded.

“But his approach is to say, if I get an explanation from the people I’m investigating, that is not unreasonable on its face, then I will accept it as long as there’s not contradictory testimonial or documentary evidence.”

“In other words, it’s a very differential standard. And all he said is people give me an explanation. And I didn’t find anything to contradict it. So, I don’t have a basis for saying that there was improper motive. But he hasn’t decided the issue of improper motive.”

“We have to wait until the investigation — the full investigation is done, and that’s the fundamental description between what Durham is doing and what the IG is doing.”

“Durham is not limited to the FBI, he can talk to other agencies, he can compel people to testify. One of the problems in the IG’s investigation, I think he would agree, is that Comey refused to sign back on for his security clearance and therefore couldn’t be questioned about classified matters.

So, someone like Durham can compel testimony, he can talk to a whole range of people, private parties, foreign governments and so forth. And I think that is the point at which a decision has to be made about motivations. And I think right now, it would be premature to make any judgment, one way or the other.”
