Trump AG Bill Barr: Prosecutors Likely Have ‘Very Good Evidence’ Trump Obstructed Justice | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Former Trump Attorney General William Barr said over the weekend that he believes that federal prosecutors likely have "very good evidence" that the former president committed obstruction of justice in the criminal investigation into his handling of classified material.

    Barr made the remarks on Easter Sunday during an interview on ABC News' "This Week" while discussing the four criminal investigations into former President Donald Trump.

    Barr said that he believes that the Manhattan case, where Trump was just indicted on 34 felony counts, was incredibly weak and that it was a "clear example" of weaponizing the justice system for political gain.

    Barr said that he believes that Democrats are trying to use the investigations to "get into the middle of the Republican primary process and turn it into a circus."

    "And I think, ultimately, the savvy Democratic strategists know this is going to help Trump, and they want him to be the nominee because he is the weakest of the Republican candidates, the most likely to lose again to Biden," Barr warned.

    Barr said that Trump should be "most concerned about the document case in Mar-a-Lago because" he believes that prosecutors have serious evidence that Trump committed obstruction of justice as investigators tried to recover U.S. government records and classified materials from the former president.

    The raid on Mar-a-Lago was "taken after a long period, about a year-and-a-half of trying to get the documents from him, which he had no claim to," Barr said. "He had no claim to those documents, especially the classified documents. They belonged to the government. And so, I think he was jerking the government around. And they subpoenaed it. And they tried to jawbone him into delivering documents."

    "But the government is investigating the extent to which games were played and there was obstruction in keeping documents from them," he added. "And I think that's a serious potential case. I think they probably have some very good evidence there."

    Barr said that there is "a very good chance" that Trump will be criminally indicted in the case.
