AG Barr: ‘I Don’t Expect Mr. Durham’s Work Will Lead to a Criminal Investigation’
BARR: "I have a general idea of how Mr. Durham's investigation is going. And as I have indicated, some aspects of the matter are being examined as potential crimes. But we have to bear in mind what the Supreme Court recently reminded us of in Bridgegate case. The court there said there's a difference between an abuse of power and a federal crime. Not every abuse of crime, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime. Now, as to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don't expect Mr. Durham's work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man. Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others."
