Former Trump Attorney General William Barr said that he believes former President Donald Trump was indicted to help him win the Republican nomination for president and then lose in the general election.
“We haven’t seen it. We don’t know exactly what’s there,” Barr said. “But judging from the news reports, it’s the archetypal abuse of the prosecutorial function to engage in a political hit job. And it’s a disgrace, if it turns out to be what we think it is.”
From The Daily Wire:
“Politically, it’s gonna be damaging, I think, to the Republican Party simply because I think it’s a no-lose situation for the Democrats,” Barr continued. “I think the impetus is really to help Trump get the nomination, focus the attention on him for two years, have this thing swirling around, plus whatever else comes, which I think will be damaging to whoever gets the nomination.” “And legally, I think it’s, from what I understand, it’s a pathetically weak case,” he added. Barr went on to explain why he believes that the entire case is “very weak.”
