Trump Wants To Declassify Everything Barr Tried To Hide From The Public About Investigation Into Biden
Following an article in the Wall Street Journal that Attorney General William Barr was aware of the investigation into the Biden family's machinations in Ukraine from the very beginning and decided to withhold information, disgruntled Trump supporters began to urge the US President to fire Barr.
“Attorney General William Barr has known about a disparate set of investigations involving Hunter Biden’s business and financial dealings since at least this spring, a person familiar with the matter said, and worked to avoid their public disclosure during the heated election campaign,” The Wall Street Journal wrote.
At the same time, Donald Trump replied that he intends to declassify all the details of the investigation.
I have been doing this. I agree! https://t.co/1YTTGwxlxx— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2020
Four years of Donald Trump's futile attempts to force the Ukrainian government to publicize all of Hunter Biden's gray schemes and start an investigation again disappointed the US president, and amid the failed Republican elections, the Trump administration lost another ally in the person of William Barr.
“Mr. Trump, in a meeting Friday, fumed about a Wall Street Journal report that Mr. Barr knew of an existing federal investigation into Hunter Biden before the election but worked to keep it from being publicly disclosed, a person familiar with the conversation said. In the meeting, Mr. Trump contemplated firing Mr. Barr, people familiar with the conversation said, adding that it is not clear whether Mr. Trump intends to follow through.”
A big disappointment! https://t.co/esmB5HrJlH— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2020
The Justice Department regulates a ban on disclosure of information on investigations of alleged crimes committed by elected officials within 60 days of the election. According to the Wall Street Journal, this may have been Barr's deterrent.
IF Biden gets in, nothing will happen to Hunter or Joe. Barr will do nothing, and the new group of partisan killers coming in will quickly kill it all. Same thing with Durham. We caught them cold, spying, treason & more (the hard part), but “Justice” took too long. Will be DOA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2020
