Barr ‘skeptical’ of Trump conviction in Georgia voting probe

Former Attorney General Bill Barr said on Sunday he was “skeptical” that former President Trump would be convicted in the Georgia investigation into whether the former president or his allies broke the law in their attempts to annul the results of the 2020 elections.

“I don’t know much about his case. I don’t know if it’s, you know, a healthy case or not. I’m skeptical about that,” Barr said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Barr, who served as attorney general under Trump, said Sunday that the investigation Trump faces in Georgia may be more difficult to prove because of the First Amendment, noting that “we don’t want to put ourselves in a position where the people can’ I’m not complaining about an election.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) has asked judges not to schedule in-person trials and hearings for around the first half of August, indicating she may be considering bringing charges against Trump during this time. The investigation includes reviewing a phone call in which Trump asked Georgian Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to ‘find 11,780 votes’.

Trump has also spoken out against the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt” against him as he faces numerous other legal challenges.
