Is Trump Toast?

Donald Trump

( – Appearing on one of the Mainstream Media Sunday Talk Shows, former Attorney General William Barr, who served under former President Donald Trump for the majority of Trump’s term in office, said Trump “is toast” if even half of what is contained in last week’s federal indictment is true.

You can watch a video of Barr making his statements about Trump further down this post.

Barr, who appeared on Fox News Sunday hosted by Shannon Bream, was asked by Bream:

“What about this chief argument that comes up from the president’s allies and his legal team that this should’ve been handled under the Presidential Records Act, not this Espionage Act charge and other federal statutes that were used here?”

Barr responded:

“Well, it started out under the Presidential Records Act, and the Archives trying to retrieve documents that Trump had no right to have. But it quickly became clear that what the government was really worried about were these classified and very sensitive documents. 

“I was shocked by the degree of sensitivity of these documents and how many there were, frankly. 

“And so the government’s agenda was to get those, protect those documents, and get them out. And I think it was perfectly appropriate to do that. It was the right thing to do. And I think the counts under the Espionage Act that he willfully retained those documents are solid counts.

“Now, I do think we have to wait and see what the defense says and what proves to be true.

“But I do think that if even half — what Andy McCarthy said — if even half of it is true, then he’s toast. It’s a very detailed indictment, and it’s very, very damning.”
