In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Attorney General William Barr said the Russia investigation that shadowed President Trump for the first two years of his administration was started without any basis and amounted to an effort to “sabotage the presidency.”
Barr, who has appointed a U.S. Attorney to lead an investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, said the Justice Department has evidence there was “something far more troubling” than just mistakes during the investigation that eventually morphed into special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
“I think the president has every right to be frustrated because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history,” AG Barr said to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.
The attorney general said the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia “without any basis.”
“Even more concerning, actually, is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president,” Barr said. “To sabotage the presidency, and I think that — or at least have the effect of sabotaging the presidency.”
“My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness,” he said. “There is something far more troubling here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it.
