FNC’s Wallace: Barr’s Decision to Make Conclusion on Obstruction ‘Seems Even More Troubling’

IAN HANCHETT

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” FNC host Chris Wallace stated that Attorney General William Barr’s decision “to make a conclusion on the question of obstruction, seems even more troubling,” and “really seems to go against the grain of what Robert Mueller was suggesting in his own report.”

Wallace said, “I think the decision…by William Barr to make a conclusion on the question of obstruction, seems even more troubling, and perhaps even more politically charged when you read the report. Because, when you read the report, it becomes clear that the reason that Robert Mueller didn’t make a finding on obstruction wasn’t because he didn’t feel capable of doing it, but because he thought, in direct contradiction to what Bill Barr said yesterday, that under department guidelines, there could not be an indictment of a sitting president, and he very much left it to Congress to make that decision. So, the fact that Barr decided to interpose himself and to make this decision himself, although Congress obviously could go ahead and do what it wants, really seems to go against the grain of what Robert Mueller was suggesting in his own report.”
