Barr’s promise touches on the holy grail for those of us who believe there was an outrageous abuse of government power to try to tip the election to Hillary Clinton and then to topple Trump.

Who leaked scores of misleading investigative tidbits to the media in ways that suggested Trump’s guilt was all but certain?
