Barr: investigation of the origins of the “Russian case” will not lead to charges against Obama and Biden

The Prosecutor General noted that “not every abuse of power” is a Federal crime.

US Attorney General William Barr does not expect that the Justice Department’s investigation into the FBI’s actions in the 2016 election interference situation will lead to criminal charges against former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I don’t expect that Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation against any of them,” Barr said, referring to Federal Prosecutor John Durham, who is looking into the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the election. – Not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is a Federal crime.”

President Donald Trump has spoken repeatedly in recent weeks about the scandal, which he calls “Obamacare.” According to Trump, Obama is linked to “the largest political crime in American history.” The President did not confirm his words.
