Six months after resigning as attorney general, William Barr recently re-entered the spotlight, reportedly telling friendly news correspondent Jonathan Karl that allegations of vote fraud during the 2020 election are bull. Now that civilian Bill Barr has jumped back into the political fray, it is time to take unflinching stock of the degraded Department of Justice (DOJ) and how it became even further corrupted during Barr’s reign. In reviewing the attorney general’s passivity during his tenure, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that Barr’s inaction was born of anything other than profound fear of the progressive, hydra-headed agency he ostensibly led. Indeed, during his nearly two years on the job, the nation’s top cop repeatedly gave interviews in which he alluded to criminal wrongdoing on the part of the Obama administration and senior leaders of Obama’s intelligence agencies, which spied on the Trump campaign and later sought to remove Trump from office on a variety of increasingly implausible and comically specious pretexts. Yet, despite all of Barr’s talk, there was never any accountability for the malefactors.
