Former Attorney General William Barr took his shot at the Russian collusion probe that Democrats launched into Donald Trump’s campaign.
He was not exactly flattering.
That was especially the case when it came to Robert Mueller.
Barr opens up in his upcoming book, “One Damn Thing After Another.”
The former Attorney General does not hold back against anyone.
Barr took several shots at Trump, even going so far as to recommend that the GOP move on from him.
Now he has Mueller in his sights, stating, “I believe Rosenstein felt that the collusion allegations were probably baseless and that the best way for the administration to get beyond the wild scandalmongering was to appoint a prominent figure who could bring things to a conclusion quickly and credibly.”
In regard to Mueller being assigned the investigation, he stated that Mueller “was the wrong person to investigate it anyway.”
Barr’s biggest criticism is that Mueller never even thought to look at the case to determine if anything warranted an investigation in the first place.
Barr continued, “The whole purpose of appointing Mueller was to assure the public that partisanship would not be involved in the investigation.
“Mueller defeated the very purpose of his appointment.
“His staffing decisions engendered deep distrust in half the country.
“Based on later information about the way the investigation was conducted, those fears were not wholly unjustified.”
Barr hit Mueller one more time for failing to truly investigate the origins of the Steele dossier.
Had he done that, the investigation would have been halted in its tracks.
Instead, the dossier was used as the basis for FISA warrants that never should have been issued.
I am no fan of Barr, but his assessment of Mueller is about as dead-on as it gets.
