Bill Barr Makes Wild Prediction About Trump 'Special Master' Decision

Linkedin Share

As Donald Trump continues to navigate yet another legal and political attack carried out by the federal government and the Biden administration, the former President received a rare bit of good news just days ago.

His request to have a “special master” appointed in the case of the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago was granted, which not only immediately halts the DOJ’s investigation, but allows his legal team to work toward installing a third-party overseer in the case to prevent the feds from examining any materials that were not explicitly detailed in the search warrant used in the incident.

The Democrats were incensed, of course, and began spouting a number of strange conspiracy theories about the judge that ruled in favor of installing a special master.

Now, in a strange twist to the tale, Trump’s former Attorney General appears to believe that the ruling itself will be overturned.

From a recent appearance on Fox News:

Barr said, “The opinion, I think, was wrong, and I think the government should appeal that. It was deeply flawed in a number of ways. I don’t think the appointment of a special master is going to hold up. Even if it does, I don’t see it fundamentally changing the trajectory. In other words, I don’t think it changes the ball game as and so much as we will have a rain delay for a couple of innings.”

He continued, “But the fundamental dramatics of the case is the same, which is the government has strong evidence of what it needs to determine whether the charges are appropriate, which is government documents were taken, classified information was taken and not handled appropriately, and they are looking into some evidence that suggests they were deceived. None of that really relates to the content of documents. It relates to what the fact there were documents there. The fact that they were classified and the fact that they were subpoenaed and never delivered. They don’t have to show the content, you know, specific advice given in a memo, for example, in order to prevail in this case. I think it is not really going to change the decision.”

Barr then dropped the hammer.

MacCallum asked, “Do you think the special master will be overturned on appeal by the DOJ?”

Barr said, “I think if the DOJ appeals, eventually it will be overturned.”

Barr and Trump have been drifting apart since their time in government, with the former AG having previously taken an ugly swipe at Trump over the Mar-a-Lago document scandal.
