Attorney General William Barr has been very busy lately getting to the bottom of the Obama administration spying on President Donald Trump’s campaign and trying to prevent him from winning the 2016 election.
Barr and the prosecutor running the investigation, John H. Durham, just shifted into a criminal inquiry and that means corrupt Obama-era officials could be held accountable.
This has already infuriated Democrats, but Barr’s prosecutor just sent Democrats and the media into a total frenzy.
Late last week, an “animated” conversation took place between Trump and Barr in the Oval Office before the president was scheduled to depart from the White House.
CNN reported that “President Donald Trump met with Attorney General William Barr and White House counsel Pat Cipollone in an Oval Office meeting Thursday afternoon in which the so-called Horowitz report came up in conversation, two sources told CNN.”
The topic makes sense — the Horowitz report’s release is “imminent,” Barr said earlier in the week.
Trump was scheduled to depart for a political rally in Louisiana, but that trip was delayed by some 45 minutes because of his conversation with Barr.
White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham were also part of the discussion.

Barr and Durham recently shifted their probe into the origins of the Russia probe into a criminal inquiry — and that means corrupt Obama-era officials could be held accountable.
Republicans are counting on indictments or at least a report that shows wrongdoing on the part of former FBI Director James Comey, former DNI head James Clapper, and others in the way they went after Trump to investigate him even before he took office in 2017.
Earlier this month it was also reported that a former top Obama official has agreed to cooperate with Barr’s investigation.
Former FBI general counsel James Baker is working with Barr and assisting in his probe.
Baker is important to this whole investigation because he was the one who initially leaked the information that led to the probe against then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The former FBI general counsel had leaked information to the Washington Post, which ran the story at the behest of Clapper.
Baker played a big role in the FBI going after Flynn and kicking off the phony Russia probe — so the fact that he’s cooperating with the DOJ is a very big deal.
This also comes after it was revealed that the Department of Justice announced last week that an administrative review of the Russia investigation has shifted into a criminal inquiry.
This means that Barr and Durham now have the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury, and to file criminal charges.
It certainly appears that Barr and Durham have already found evidence of criminal wrongdoing regarding the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
They wouldn’t have turned their investigation into criminal inquiry if there wasn’t evidence of Obama officials potentially breaking the law.
The president has turned the tables, and the American people will soon learn of the corrupt actions taken by Obama and his allies to take down Trump.
And Barr has played a huge role in all of this, which is why Trump, Republicans, and so many Americans a thankful that he’s leading the DOJ.
