Barr: ‘Russian Collusion Story’ Was Organized Effort To Remove Trump From Office
In a Fox News interview with Maria Bartiromo, Attorney General William Barr agreed that the “Russian collusion story” was akin to an organized effort to remove the President from office.
A source said to me a couple of years ago, speaking of the Russia collusion story, that this was the closest the United States ever game to a coup to take down a president since the assassination of Lincoln.
Is that an appropriate statement?
In this sense; I think it is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office.
Before Bartiromo moved on, Barr quickly added that he was “not reaching a judgment as to what the motivations there were.”
Bartiromo also asked if Barr could “tell us anything about how this all started?”
You know, I guess I don't want to talk about that.
Some of it may become evident as the—as more facts are disclosed. But I think there were probably a range of motives for different people.
