Trump Attorney General Bill Barr: Indictment Designed To Sabotage GOP White House Chances In 2024
US Attorney General William Barr speaks at a joint news conference on the International Criminal Court, at the State Department in Washington, DC, on June 11, 2020. - The US on Thursday accused Russia of "manipulating" the International Criminal Court as President Donald Trump announced sanctions against court officials who target US troops. "Foreign powers like Russia are also manipulating the ICC in pursuit of their own agenda," Barr said.

Former Trump Attorney General William Barr said Friday that he believes Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted former President Donald Trump because it will propel him to win the Republican Party nomination for president only to lose in the general election.

The indictment, which is rumored to include up to 34 counts, surrounds an alleged $130,000 hush money payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election.

“We haven’t seen it. We don’t know exactly what’s there,” Barr said. “But judging from the news reports, it’s the archetypal abuse of the prosecutorial function to engage in a political hit job. And it’s a disgrace, if it turns out to be what we think it is.”

“Politically, it’s gonna be damaging, I think, to the Republican Party simply because I think it’s a no-lose situation for the Democrats,” Barr continued. “I think the impetus is really to help Trump get the nomination, focus the attention on him for two years, have this thing swirling around, plus whatever else comes, which I think will be damaging to whoever gets the nomination.”

“And legally, I think it’s, from what I understand, it’s a pathetically weak case,” he added.

Barr went on to explain why he believes that the entire case is “very weak.”
