Barr quickly added that he was “ not reaching a judgment as to what the motivations there were.”

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.

Bartiromo said,

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?

Barr answered,

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?”

Barr replied,

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.
