Trump fires back after Obama swipes at his coronavirus response”

Grossly incompetent."Coronavirus lockdown: Latest updatesLater in a tweet, Trump called the former Obama administration "one of the most corrupt and incompetent in U.S. history", reports Xinhua news agency. And in my opinion, it was an illegal takedown". I think for them, maybe they're not going to.

Barr said there have been "increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon", and that what happened to President Trump was "abhorrent" and "grave injustice" as law enforcement was used to advance what he called a "false and utterly baseless" Russian Federation collusion narrative.

Barr's comment came at a news conference to discuss last year's shooting at a USA military base in Pensacola, Fla.

He named neither President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence in the speech but said that "more than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so numerous folks in charge know what they're doing".

Barr has faced a torrent of criticism, including from former Justice Department officials, that he's doing Trump's bidding and trying to undo parts of the Russian Federation investigation.

Barr said he doesn't expect Obama or Biden to be accused of committing crimes as part of an investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

But Barr emphasized that abuses of power were not necessarily criminal offense.

Last week Trump urged Senator Lindsey Graham, who chairs the powerful Senate judiciary committee, to call Obama to testify.

"Over the past few decades there have been increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon", Barr said on Monday.

"People should be going to jail for this stuff", Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network, adding that "many people" were involved.

The next day, Trump was asked to clarify his allegations.

"'Obamagate.' It's been going on for a long time".

Trump's attacks frame the 2020 election as a proxy war between himself Obama - a contrast that Democrats welcome as the former president, who has largely stayed out of the political fray since leaving office, expects to campaign for Biden. According to a National Security Agency memo accompanying the declassified list, the unmasking was "authorized" and occurred through the "NSA's standard process, which includes a review of the justification for the request". "Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others".
