As William Barr, Trump’s Attorney General, sat for an interview with Fox News, a shocking revelation emerged from the shadows. Barr was neck-deep in the murky Biden-Burisma bribe investigations, raising pointed questions about why the American public was left uninformed about these damning allegations against Joe Biden leading up to the election. This tale of concealment beckons us to unravel the threads of secrecy and betrayal spun by none other than Barr himself.
In the summer heat of 2020, as the nation braced for the presidential elections, a tempest was brewing behind the walls of power. The eye of this storm was William Barr, then Attorney General, who revealed an intimate involvement in the investigation against Joe Biden and his connection to the Ukrainian energy firm, Burisma. This revelation came during an interview with Fox News host Shannon Bream, leaving many to wonder – why was the American public kept in the dark about these crucial details?
During the interview, Barr chose to target President Trump, conveniently diverting attention from the damaging Biden-Ukraine bribery allegations. Despite the gravity of the claims against Biden, accusations of a $5 million bribe from Burisma in return for U.S. foreign policy favors, Barr maintained an eerie silence. It’s no wonder that the Biden-related questions appeared only as an afterthought in Bream’s conversation.
Barr’s secretive actions, unfortunately, extend beyond this one interview. He has consistently claimed that the FD-1023 investigation into Biden’s alleged bribery was not shut down, despite Rep Raskin’s claims. Notably, it was under Barr’s guidance that the Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney’s office developed the FD-1023 form. This form, filled with details of the bribery allegations, has since become a source of contention between FBI Director Christopher Wray and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer.
Throughout the interview, Barr wove a narrative of innocence and justification, emphasizing the vetting process he had put in place to identify any disinformation or questionable sources. He praised the Pittsburgh office for their meticulous work in developing further information on the allegations, which he claimed had been overlooked by the FBI. However, such claims ring hollow when considered against his reticence to share these findings with the American people.
Barr, it seems, was playing a game of shadows. As early as the summer of 2020, he had access to credible information about the Bidens’ alleged corruption. This information, backed by over a hundred Treasury Department Suspicious Activity Reports and Hunter Biden’s laptop, implicated Joe Biden in foreign bribery and money laundering operations linked to Burisma. Yet, despite this mounting pile of evidence, Barr opted for silence.
Furthermore, his claim that the information in the FD-1023 did not come from Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, raises yet another question. If the FBI was the primary source of this information, why was Barr so invested in keeping it under wraps? Was he more concerned with shielding Biden than protecting American democracy?
Even more intriguingly, his silence remained unbroken despite the Democrats impeaching President Trump for attempting to have the Ukrainian government investigate the Biden family’s alleged corruption. This, coupled with the video of Biden boasting about coercing Ukraine into firing a prosecutor, paints a picture of Barr as a silent accomplice to Biden’s alleged impropriety.
William Barr’s enigmatic silence on the Biden-Burisma bribery allegations marks an unsettling chapter in the annals of American democracy. With damning evidence on hand, and public sentiment hanging in the balance, Barr chose to serve as a protector of secrets rather than a harbinger of truth. As we navigate the political maze, one must ask – was Barr safeguarding justice or shielding corruption? For the sake of democracy, may the truth prevail over the whispers of the Deep State.
