Barr says it’s unlikely Justice Department will investigate Obama or Biden

Attorney General William Barr said Monday he does not expect the Justice Department to probe former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden as part of its review of the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Speaking at a news conference to discuss a shooting at a Florida naval base last year, Barr was asked about President Donald Trump’s suggestion that Obama and Biden committed crimes. Saying he was not specifically taking issue with Trump’s remarks, Barr criticized “increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon.”
