Attorney General Bill Barr has what he needs to indict key members of the Obama administration who were aware of illegal spying into the 2016 Trump campaign, the president said Thursday.
Speaking to Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo, President Trump discussed why Barr should pursue indictments following a newly declassified set of memos released earlier this week by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, detailing how President Obama himself had indeed been briefed on the Clinton camp’s “plan” to use the phony Russian collusion narrative against the Trump campaign.
“Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes — the greatest political crime in history of our country — then we’re going to get little satisfaction,” Trump told Bartiromo.
“And that includes Obama, and that includes Biden,” the president stated.
Asked why Barr has thus far failed to mobilize, the president noted he’s asking the same question.
“All this stuff, it’s sitting on [Barr’s] desk!” declared Bartiromo. “The 1,000 pages sitting on AG Barr’s desk. What is he going to do about it?”
“I don’t know why they’re not doing it,” Trump answered. “I don’t know. You’ll have to call Bill and ask him… Bill has gotta move.”
Trump went on to claim Barr’s decision on the matter could make, or break his legacy.
