    The federal prosecutor Attorney General Bill Barr tapped to investigate whether Obama administration officials improperly requested the unmasking of individuals during the 2016 election has concluded his probe without “finding any substantive wrongdoing,” The Washington Post reported Tuesday. Barr appointed U. S. Attorney Jeremy Bash to review whether there was wrongdoing by the Obama administration in requesting the identities of individuals — in particular Trump allies — whose names are redacted in intelligence reports during the heated election. The practice, known as unmasking, is common and done to help government officials make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing,...

    The Department of Justice on Monday declared New York City, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon, as "anarchist jurisdictions" in the first move to rescind their federal funding, The Washington Times reports. President Donald Trump issued a memo earlier this month asking the DOJ to determine jurisdictions that it thought were not properly enforcing the law, as he repeatedly criticized cities led by Democrats for their response to the ongoing protests. Attorney General William Barr said in a statement that the cities "have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities."...

    New York City was among three cities labeled “anarchist jurisdictions” by the Justice Department on Sunday and targeted to lose federal money for failing to control protesters and defunding cops, The Post has learned. Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., were the other two cities on the list, which was approved by US Attorney General William Barr. “When state and local leaders impede their own law-enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said in a statement set to be released...

    I am pleased to be at this Hillsdale College celebration of Constitution Day. Sadly, many colleges these days don’t even teach the Constitution, much less celebrate it. But at Hillsdale, you recognize that the principles of the Founding are as relevant today as ever—and vital to the success of our free society. I appreciate your observance of this important day and all you do for civic education in the United States. When many people think about the virtues of our Constitution, they first mention the Bill of Rights. That makes sense. The great guarantees of the Bill of Rights—freedom of...

    Attorney General William Barr told the nation’s federal prosecutors to be aggressive when charging violent demonstrators with crimes, including potentially prosecuting protesters for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government, people familiar with the conversation said. In a conference call with U.S. attorneys across the country last week, Mr. Barr warned that sometimes violent demonstrations across the U.S. could worsen as the November presidential election approaches. He encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply, the people said. The call underscores the priority Mr. Barr has given...

Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding...

    Attorney General William Barr overruled career lawyers in the Department of Justice (DOJ), setting a deadline for federal prosecutors to file an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet—the parent company of Google—by the end of the month, The New York Times reported on Thursday. According to the report, the team of attorneys who have been working on the case for more than a year strongly oppose the deadline as being too soon to bring a strong case against the tech giant. They worry that Barr is more concerned about filing the high-profile lawsuit before November’s presidential election than allowing the department to...

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), not Russia, poses the biggest threat to election security leading up to November, said Attorney General William Barr. In an interview on Wednesday night with CNN, Barr was asked about election security and who is the most assertive or aggressive nation. “I believe it’s China,” Barr said. “China more than Russia right now.” Asked about why he made that assessment, Barr said he has “seen the intelligence” suggesting the CCP is a greater threat than Moscow. “That’s what I concluded,” he added, saying that could not elaborate more on classified information. But he stressed that...

That will be done.” “The second aspect of this is, if people crossed the line, if people involved in that activity violated the criminal law, they will be charged,” Barr continued. “And John Durham is an independent man, highly experienced, and his investigation is pursuing a case.

    "I hope they're not going to be politically correct,' Trump said Following Mueller’s investigation, Barr appointed Durham to then investigate the origins of the FBI’s original Russia probe, which began in July 2016, through the appointment of Mueller in May 2017. Durham’s team includes a number of federal prosecutors, including Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri who was tapped by the DOJ in February to review the case against Michael Flynn. In May, Barr also tapped U.S. Attorney for Western Texas John Bash to launch a more focused review on the process of unmasking. The...

Levin sat down with Barr on Sunday’s edition of “Life, Liberty & Levin” in a news-making interview in which the country's top law enforcement officer discussed the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through U.S. cities. He told Levin that the organization – which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group – is comprised of "Bolsheviks" with a focus on "some form of socialism, communism." "They...

Some of Mr. Barr’s quotes appear below. Read them carefully and you will see the U.S. Attorney General speaking with perfectly clear eyes about the true nature of BLM, which is indistinguishable from its fellow Democrat-sponsored terrorist group, Antifa, as I have been pointing out to readers here for weeks now:...
