During an interview on CBS news with Catherine Herridge, the United States Attorney General William Barr called out fired FBI Director James Comey for laying Perjury trap for General Michael Flynn.
During the interview, Barr said:
“I think a very important evidence here was that this was not a bonafide counterintelligence investigation was that they were closing the investigation in December. They started that process and on January 4th, they were closing it,” Barr said. “They initially tried some theories of how they could open another investigation, which didn’t fly, and then they found out that they had not technically closed the earlier investigation. And they kept it open for the express purpose of trying to catch, lay a perjury trap for General Flynn.”
Barr continued, “They didn’t warn him the way we usually would be required by the Department. They bypassed the Justice Department, they bypassed the protocols at the White House and so forth. These were things that persuaded me that there was not a legitimate counterintelligence investigation going on.”
