There are two competing pictures of Bill Barr’s tenure as attorney general.
There is the decisive Bill Barr who ended the farcical Mueller probe, making the determination that President Donald Trump had not obstructed justice. There is the nonpartisan Bill Barr who stood up to Congress and promised to take on Big Tech. There is the outspoken, seemingly fearless Bill Barr who challenged our intelligence communities as he opened the Durham investigation into the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign.
And then there is the attorney general who left the Department of Justice (DOJ) with zero investigative results and few tangible achievements other than ending the politically driven Mueller probe. An attorney general who kept the DOJ’s investigation of Hunter Biden hidden from public view during a crucial point in the presidential election. An attorney general who publicly stated that he had not seen a level of fraud that would have altered the outcome of the 2020 presidential election—exactly when Trump was petitioning various state courts seeking to review the legality of the election.
We look at Barr’s tumultuous two-year tenure as attorney general and assess why what started so promisingly ended so poorly.
