Barr Admits He Does Not Expect Criminal Investigations Into Obama and Biden

Attorney General William Barr is announcing that he does not intend to conduct criminal investigations into former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden.

During a press conference at the Justice Department, Barr discussed U.S Attorney John Durham’s probe into what President Donald Trump has declared “Obamagate.”

Barr began by noting that “there is a difference between abuse of power and a federal crime.

“Not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime,” Barr clarified on Monday morning.

Barr went on to admit that the current information he has likely will not lead to Durham pursuing charges against Obama or Biden.

“As to President Obama and Vice President Obama, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr confirmed.

He added, “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.” (

See Barr’s remarks below:

The latest development follows Trump’s call for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to have Obama testify before Congress.

On Thursday, Trump took to Twitter to discuss what he considers “the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA.” He also pressed Graham to take action, as previously reported on IJR.

“If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama. He knew EVERYTHING,” Trump tweeted, adding, “Do it [Lindsey Graham], just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!”

Despite Trump’s call for an investigation into the former president, Graham’s response was relatively similar to Barr’s statement. While he did sympathize with Trump, he admitted that he didn’t anticipate Obama testifying.

“I’m not anticipating calling President Obama,” Graham said, adding, “I think the president’s got a real good reason to be upset with the Obama people.”


  1. The Obama administration was the epitome of corruption and mistakes. Spying on citizens, spying on an opposing party’s campaign, abandoning an ambassador and staff to terrorists, no response to H1N1/60.8 million cases, a fail operation that resulted in a border agent being killed, Mexican Federales killed and a school shot up, attempting to cripple America’s energy system, dividing America along racial lines, financing ISIS startup, lying about forcing Syria to destroy it’s chemical weapons, giving IRAN $2.2 billion for a failed nuclear agreement, etc. Obama was an incompetent sham, set up by the Democrat party and the media in the same manner as “The Emperor’s Clothes”. We’re just now finding out how corrupt that administration was. Spying on citizens is a crime, attempting to fix an election is a crime, targeting an individual, to obstruct disclosure, because he’s about to blow the whistle on improper funding is a crime. It’s time to investigate Obama and his corrupt administration.

    1. “Spying on citizens” Chuck

      If this truly bothers you (and it should), then you should see what Moscow Mitch is cooking up for you right now. But I have to warn you before you lift a fork of it up to your awaiting lips – it will be mighty unsavory.


      1. The spy in chief, Obamanation, spied on American citizens and an opposing party’s campaign using the FBI, NSA, and the Intelligence (ha, ha) community. That’s the sign of a true fascist dictator. But, again, you project and accuse Republicans, just like Democrats did with the Mueller investigation and the Trump impeachment to cover up the Hillarrhoid and Biden. Your BS doesn’t work.

        1. I AGREE that the Obama administration removed more of our protections than Bush did, but that is NO EXCUSE for the CURRENT administration from going even further with more spying and loss of our rights.

          Be careful, Chuck, pretty soon you are not going to recognize this state. It won’t be what you thought it was, what you thought it should be. That responsibility is on you.

    1. “Trump is trying to drain the swamp but his hands are tied. Sad.” OBSIDIAN


      Is this the new excuse now and you are just running with it? So sad.

      You have absolutely NO idea about how corruption works NOR how it is stopped. It is stopped by people like you and me (well, it seems OBSIDIAN can’t be included because he doesn’t know what the flylin f–k he is talking about) voting in better politicians. It starts with the people wising up and doing what is right for this country, for a change.

      1. How is this a new excuse when it’s what Trump campaigned on. How do you vote in better politicians when they’re all crooked? You vote in a businessman. MAGA.

        1. Not all politicians are corrupt. Lots of them are, yes, but not all. The only ones that we can assure are not corrupt are those who csmpaign on and remain funded by small donations. THEY are not being corrupted by rich donors or corportationd.

          Electing a corrupt “businessman” has been a huge failure which resulted in a huge spike in corruption and the loss of so many important regulations designed to PROTECT US! But you don’t care, even to the detriment of your own safety and personal wealth.

          1. I don’t need the government to PROTECT ME! Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

          2. OBSIDIAN is confused by the role of a government, its laws and regulations designed to help and protect him in ways that he can NEVER understand.

  2. My last paycheck was $9500 working 20 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do…………..

      1. Bound by the laws of honor to succor a distressed reader, Bob does not realize he might as well be tilting at windmills. I’m afraid the true nature of the giants he imagines to be battling will never be revealed to him.

  3. Because they have NOTHING to investigate. Every investigation they have done has come up empty! Maybe the Democratic politicians should hold everything up in court the same way Trump has done for the last 3 1/2 years. Trump and his entire administration of bobbleheads are the laughing stock of the world. America is in the worst shape it’s ever been in.

    1. You mean like the ompeacement? Going after Biden wpuld only result in Dems whining.

    2. The big B donna. You and your communist party are the laughing stock of the world not President Trump or any in his administration. We do not go by your attempt to push through laws that do not help the American people like your virus laws that help everyone but the people who need it. Take your illegal aliens and put them where the sun don’t shine. Do not try to convince the people that you give one rats ass about “the people”. You care about the destruction of America and the installing “one party rule” (totalitarianism) and not freedom. Did your mama have any kids that have a brain. The worst condition this nation has ever been is when the nero wannabe obutticus was reigning. So stop talking and put your head back up your ass where it belongs.

      1. “Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”

        1. Obama did. He looks grey and tired. Obama making poor decisions as he did for 8 years.

      2. Bob did you mean to say Negro than have the balls to say it! Obama winning 2 terms went right up your ass because you far right scumbags are a bunch of racists just like Trump. You hate anyone who is not white and far right. Watch another news channel and see what the world thinks of Trump, but Fox is beginning to see the light and dumping Trump also. Put your head up Trumps ass so you can get a better taste and leave my mother out of the conversation ok? She’s dead.

    3. Rachel Madcow is that you? Sounds like you. How soon you forget Kavanaugh, Flynn et al. That court! Stop sounding uneducated.

    4. Democrats have destroyed evidence (the Watergate papers, Steele’s documentation, the Hillarrhoids wiped server/smashed phones/missing laptop, the memos from Obama’s meeting with Clapper, Brennen, Comey, McCabe, Rice, Holder on Flynn, four months of FBI texts and phone calls about the creation of their “secret society” to obstruct the Trump Administration, etc.) Some evidence has been found, but they do everything they can to obstruct justice. Even when the evidence is presented during an investigation and the Hillarrhoid commits perjury multiple times, it only takes a secret meeting between Bill Clinton and the AG and charges are dropped. What BS!! Democrats are the most corrupt people anywhere.

  4. That is very very unfortunate. Undermining a president elect sounds like a crime. Oh well.
