(RightWing.org) – Democrats received potentially bad news for their chances of winning the White House this week.
According to a report by the Washington Post, Attorney General Bill Barr has no plans to wait until the election is over to release the report from John Durham’s Russiagate investigation. If President Trump’s suspicions are correct and he was targeted by his predecessor Barack Obama, it could be terrible for the Left.
Barr Is Not Waiting
In December 2019, the attorney general released a statement slamming the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Barr said the “FBI launched an intrusive” inquiry into a candidate on “the thinnest of suspicions” and declared he couldn’t justify it. His comments came a few months after he appointed US Attorney John Durham to look into the Obama Administration’s probe and find out if anything was improper.
#NEWSTip I’m hearing chatter from sources that DOJ investigators are talking to Strzok, Pientka and other FBI agents involved in the now debunked probe into @realDonaldTrump Looks like the Barr/ Durham investigation is moving forward – at least we can hope. Let’s get indictments

During a July 28 hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) asked Barr if he’d “commit to not releasing any report” resulting from Durham’s investigation before the election.
The attorney general simply responded, “No.”
Barr has no obligation to hold onto the findings and release them after the election. And the American people deserve to have the information before they go to the polls. Democrats should be very concerned, though. If the Russia probe was based on lies, the attorney general will find out and that could change the course of the election in favor of the president.
