Donald Trump’s former Attorney General Bill Barr says the newly-released detailed inventory of items retrieved from Trump’s Florida home last month seems to justify the search by the F.B.I.

From the New York Times:

“As more information comes out, the actions of the department look more understandable,” Mr. Barr told The New York Times in a phone interview, speaking of the decision by the current attorney general, Merrick B. Garland, to seek a search warrant of the complex at Mar-a-Lago.

“It seems to me they were driven by concern about highly sensitive information being strewn all over a country club, and it was taking them almost two years to get it back,” said Mr. Barr, who resigned in December 2020, as Mr. Trump pushed him to support false claims that the election had been stolen.

“It appears that there’s been a lot of jerking around of the government,” he added. “I’m not sure the department could have gotten it back without taking action.”

Barr also dismissed Trump’s call for a “special master” – an independent party to review the documents recovered during the search.

“I think it’s a crock of shit,” said Barr. “I don’t think a special master is called for.”

In related news, the Donald is predictably lashing out at Barr on his Truth Social platform writing:

Bill Barr had “no guts,” and got “no glory.” He was a weak and pathetic RINO, who was so afraid of being Impeached that he became a captive to the Radical Left Democrats – “Please, please, please don’t impeach me,” he supposedly said.

Barr never fought the way he should have for Election Integrity, and so much else. He started off OK as A.G., but faded fast – Didn’t have courage or stamina. People like that will never Make America Great Again!
