AG Barr Departs With Few Victories in Probes of Obama-Era Officials

Press Release:

    From The Washington Times:

  • Attorney General William P. Barr will exit the Justice Department leaving behind a string of probes into misconduct by Obama-era officials that have mostly come up empty and sorely disappointed President Trump and his allies.
  • During his tenure, Mr. Barr repeatedly tasked U.S. attorneys from offices across the country to probe politically treacherous investigations. Mr. Barr initiated four of those probes and inherited two more from his predecessor, Jeff Sessions.
  • As each investigation began, Democrats fumed that Mr. Barr was using the Justice Department as a weapon against Mr. Trump's enemies. In the end, however, conservatives were the ones seething when nearly all the investigations were busts.
  • Combined, the six probes generated one criminal charge and none has produced a public report.
  • "The Justice Department, in terms of enforcing the rule of law, has been an absolute, unmitigated failure because there is no evidence that any of those probes did a serious or substantial investigation of their purported targets," said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.
  • The only investigation that has proven fruitful so far was U.S. Attorney for St. Louis Jeff Jensen's review of the criminal case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Mr. Trump's first national security adviser.
  • Mr. Jensen uncovered previously undisclosed documents that provided exculpatory information, leading the Justice Department to drop the charges against Mr. Flynn.
