Former US Attorney General Bill Barr trashed his former boss and said federal prosecutors “probably have the basis for legitimately indicting” Trump.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday appointed a special counsel to investigate whether Trump committed any crimes.
The investigation will focus on whether Trump illegally took his presidential records to Mar-a-Lago and matters related to January 6.
“In your view, is there ever a circumstance where you think it’s appropriate to indict a former president,” PBS host Margaret Hoover asked Barr.

“Oh yes. If a former president commits a crime, you know, especially a serious crime, they should be indicted for it,” Barr said.
He continued, “If the Department of Justice can show that these were indeed very sensitive documents, which I think they probably were, and also show that the president consciously was involved in misleading the department, deceiving the government and playing games after he had received the subpoena for the documents — those are serious charges,” Barr said.
Margaret Hoover egged Barr on and repeated his line, “Serious charges.”
“I personally think that they probably have the basis for legitimately indicting the president. I don’t know, I’m speculating. But given what’s gone on I think they probably have the evidence that would check the box,” Barr said.
What a hack!
