(TargetLiberty.org) – Earlier this week, former Attorney General William Barr stated that he suspects that the investigators looking into the potential mishandling of classified documents by former President Trump have likely collected “very good evidence” to support the assertion that Trump deliberately tried to stop the authorities from gaining access to the material after leaving the White House.
Barr has noted that this case might come down to the long timeline that it took for the government to be able to recover the material. As he pointed out, Trump had no right or claim to hold the classified documents after leaving the White House as they belonged to the government. He added that he believes that Trump was “jerking the government around. And they subpoenaed it. And they tried to jawbone him into delivering documents.”
What the government is focused on investigating now is the “extent to which games were played” in order to obstruct them from gaining access to the documents again. He added that out of all the legal woes that Trump could potentially end up facing, this is the probe that he should “be most concerned about.”
Barr also claimed that Trump was likely going to be indicted in this case, before classified documents were found in the houses of both President Biden and former Vice President Mike Pence. He added that there is still a good chance that he is going to be indicted in this case depending on the nature of the documents and the evidence that can be found about Trump potentially obstructing the government from gaining access to these documents.
