Bill Barr Says:

“Number one is that I think a lot of the attacks on the FBI are over the top because a decision like this is not made by the FBI,” former Attorney General William Barr told the Bari Weiss podcast on August 25.

“In fact, I don’t think the FBI would push a decision that it’s best to go in and search and obtain those documents after being jerked around for a year and a half. The decision would be made at the Department of Justice, by subordinates of the AG, and ultimately signed off on by the AG. The FBI would be told to go and execute it. I think the idea that the FBI is the problem here is misplaced.”


Perhaps bill would be interested in explaining to us the firing of FBI agent Timothy Thibault, who signed off on the raid.

Is Thibault merely a scapegoat here? It’s the only way I can see Barr’s statements being totally true. Even in that event, there are still some seriously gaping holes in the argument.
