Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Bill Barr Predicts Justice Department Is 'Taking A Hard Look' At Trump's Inner Circle On Jan. 6”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Attorney General William Barr said the Department of Justice appears to be aggressively looking into former President Donald Trump and those close to him over their roles in the Jan. 6 attack.

Barr, who served as attorney general from February 2019 through December 2020, weighed in on the DOJ investigation into the deadly Capitol insurrection during an interview with CBS News’ Catherine Herridge on Friday.

Barr said that based on a federal grand jury’s recent subpoenas of top Trump administration officials, it seems like prosecutors are “taking a hard look” at Trump and those around him regarding their actions related to the Jan. 6 attack.

“It definitely is a significant event. It changes my view of what’s been going on,” Barr said. “This suggests to me that they’re taking a hard look at the group at the top, including the president and the people immediately around him who were involved in this.”

He also predicted to Herridge that prosecutors are “going to try to get a ruling on the issue of executive privilege” after former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone was reportedly subpoenaed by the Justice Department last week.
