Four Democratic lawmakers are seeking to prevent U.S. Attorney General William Barr from publishing the results of a review of irregularities found in the case of the fake Russian collusion, the Washington Times reported on Sept. 20.
The results of this investigation generate great expectations since they could reveal the names of the high-ranking Democratic figures who possibly influenced an investigation into the alleged collusion with Russia of the Trump campaign in 2016.
The Democrats’ attempts to challenge Barr and stop this review are not new. Already in June, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), alluded to the Democrats’ maneuvers in one of his tweets.
“House Democrats have just introduced a resolution to impeach the Attorney General,” Jordan wrote.
“Are you kidding me? ” continued Jordan in his tweet, adding, “Bill Barr is cleaning up the mess that Obama, Biden, and Comey created!”

At that time the resolution was introduced by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), it was supported by other co-sponsors. One of the arguments for action against Barr said, “Attorney General Barr has undermined our justice system and perverted the rule of law,” according to the “Sara Carter Show.”
Carter highlights the fact that this resolution came only months after the big impeachment trial against President Donald Trump failed for the Democrats who initiated it.
Now the four legislators argue in their letter to Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz that Barr seeks to favor Trump politically by influencing voter opinion before the Nov. 3 election.
Currently, John Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is reviewing the 17 serious errors found by Horowitz, according to the report on the false collusion with Russia known in December 2019.
Durham revealed that former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith had added false information to one of the documents used in the process of that investigation. Clinesmith is the first defendant in this investigation.
Clinesmith’s guilty plea is just the tip of the iceberg, and it is expected that based on his testimony other names will be revealed, who may have intentionally furthered the attempt to impeach US President Donald Trump, using a fraudulent investigation.
For Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.,) the indictment of Clinesmith is the first step in a series of possible charges that could even include conspiracy.
“There are multiple indictments that could have been brought, probably including conspiracy and including the destruction of evidence. So my guess is maybe he’s going to cooperate. Maybe he’s not. But this is a good first step,” considered Nunes, according to Fox News.
