Trump Declines to Say Barr Will Join Second Term: 'I'm Not Happy'

(Newsmax TV's "Greg Kelly Reports")

By    |   Wednesday, 14 October 2020 12:58 PM

President Donald Trump offered a "no comment" on whether he plans to keep Attorney General William Barr should he win a second term.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV that aired Wednesday night on "Greg Kelly Reports," Trump said it is "too early" to determine whether he would ask Barr to come back, or if he would tap someone else for the job.

Earlier Wednesday, it was reported an investigation into the Obama administration found no wrongdoing in "unmasking" the names of Trump campaign members caught up in surveillance as part of the Russia probe.

"I have no comment. Can't comment on that. It's too early," Trump said. "I'm not happy with all of the evidence I have, I can tell you that. I'm not happy."

The Washington Post reported U.S. Attorney John Bash did not find evidence of wrongdoing with regard to the unmasking. Trump called that conclusion "a disgrace."

"Personally, I think it's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. It's a disgrace," Trump told Kelly. "I think it's really a horrible thing that they're allowed to get away — when they say no indictments, they actually said no indictments before the election.

"I had to go through elections with all those clouds over my head. But they don't because the Republicans are so nice. Personally, I think it's too bad. I think it's too bad, they're guilty as hell."

The Bash investigation was a branch of the larger probe being led by U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham, who is examining the origins of the Russia investigation that began in the Obama administration.

Durham's findings are not expected to be released before next month's election.
