Trump Responds With Fire After Bill Barr Threatens Him

Published on

When the Biden FBI raided the Florida residence of former President Donald Trump, they seized documents in his possession. Trump stated that he declassified the documents before leaving the White House and that they were destined for his presidential museum.

Earlier this year, a larger number of classified documents were discovered at President Biden’s private residence in Delaware, as well as some documents at the home of former Vice President Mike Pence, sparking concerns over how former public officials handle classified documents.

Nevertheless, it is common practice for presidents departing the Oval Office to declassify documents and take them with them.

Special counsel Jack Smith is investigating Trump’s management of the documents. Smith is also supervising a second federal investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Trump has asserted that Smith has targeted him in the past and was chosen for this purpose.

This week, one of the cabinet members that Trump dismissed made statements that cast the document issue in a very negative light.

The Hill reported that former Attorney General Bill Barr stated in an interview with CBS on Thursday that the investigation into former President Trump’s handling of classified documents could leave him feeling “very exposed,” and that it was “very clear” that Trump should not have had the classified documents found in his Mar-a-Lago residence last year.

“It doesn’t go a lot on intent or anything like that. It’s very clear that he had no business having those documents,” Barr told CBS’s Catherine Herridge. “He was given a long time to send them back. And they were subpoenaed.

“And I’ve said all along that he wouldn’t get in trouble, probably, just for taking them, just as Biden I don’t think is going to get in trouble or Pence is not going to get in trouble. The problem is: What did he do after the government asked for them back and subpoenaed them? And if there’s any games being played there, he’s going to be very exposed,” Barr said.

Trump made a point of cooperating with the FBI at the time the documents were seized from his home, and he has also noted that other officials have documents at their residences that were not preserved with the same level of security as at Mar-a-Lago. The FBI had visited, inspected, and approved Mar-a-Lago’s document security.

Barr has been outspoken about Trump’s handling of classified documents in the past, stating last month that the United States may have “very good evidence” that the former president obstructed justice in the documents investigation, but he did not specify what that “evidence” may be.

During his presidency, Trump had fired Bill Barr, who was serving as attorney general, and this week Trump posted:

“I only wish that Bill Barr, as the Attorney General of the United States was able to act. Sadly, he was afraid of the Radical Left Democrat Lunatics, and their constant threats against him of Impeachment, and was absolutely impotent on the subject of the Durham Report, he should have taken strong action.
