MSN is attempting to sew discord by claiming Attorney General William Barr is unhappy with the upcoming Inspector General's report.
Instead, the draft report found that the investigation was opened on a solid legal and factual footing, these people said.
Part of Barr’s reluctance to accept that finding is related to another investigation, one being conducted by the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, John Durham, into how intelligence agencies pursued allegations of Russian election tampering in 2016. Barr has traveled abroad to personally ask foreign officials to assist Durham in that work. Even as the inspector general’s review is ending, Durham’s investigation continues.
Barr’s disagreement with Horowitz will probably spark further criticism from Democrats, who have already accused Barr of using his position to protect the president and undermine federal law enforcement.
Notice how this is again a matter of anonymous sources.
What MSN and the overall media want is to portray the Trump Administration as the partisans here, unwilling to accept the Truth. In fact, it is the media and their Democratic allies who have been unwilling to accept the truth in Trump's election in the first place, or in the behavior of the Insiders in D.C.
I don't expect too much from the I.G. report; the fact is the I.G. is one of the Washington elites and will try to protect them. We've seen this play before.
But the fact of what actually winds up in the report is what should be of interest. Naturally, the media will latch onto one or two phrases that they can use to spin this into what it is not.
Get ready; this is going to be pretty wild.
