Carmine Sabia| Opinion| 4/10 Attorney General William Barr has made his decision and it has sent shockwaves throughout the entire nation.
In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday the attorney general said the Russian investigation was started “without basis.”
Barr told Ingraham that the entire Russian investigation was essentially an effort to “sabotage the presidency.”
He said that there was “something far more troubling” to the investigation than just mere mistakes, hinting at something more sinister.
“I think the president has every right to be frustrated because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history,” he said.
“Even more concerning, actually, is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president,” the attorney general said.
“To sabotage the presidency, and I think that — or at least have the effect of sabotaging the presidency,” he said.
Barr has vowed that the investigation into what the FBI did and why it did it is ongoing and justice is coming.
“My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness,” the attorney general said.
“There is something far more troubling here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” he said in the interview.
And as the media and Democrats were bust attempting to destroy the president and his agenda, it appears China is the nation we should be concerned about.
“In my opinion, it’s China,” he said of who was more dangerous China or Russia. “And not just to the election process, but I think across the board — there’s simply no comparison.
“China is a very serious threat to the United States geopolitically, economically, militarily, and a threat to the integrity of our institutions given their ability to influence things,” he said.
“A number of universities are working closely with the government to understand what the nature of the threat is, but it’s not just universities.
“Universities are part of the problem, but a lot of American business is just for short-term profit or what they see as a short term profit. They know over the long run it’s not going to be long term benefit to their business.”
“The Chinese are engaged in a full-court blitzkrieg of stealing American technology, trying to influence our political system, trying to steal secrets at our research universities and so forth — and we are focused on it,” he said.
“We have something we call the China initiative,” he said. “We’ve brought a lot of indictments, but it’s something that we also have to expose by letting the business community understand the exact nature of the threat.”
