Bill Barr Defends Dropping Case Against Michael Flynn: An Easy Decision, “History Is Written By The Winners”

Talking Points Memo reports:

Attorney General Bill Barr defended the Justice Department’s bombshell move to drop its case against Michael Flynn Thursday, telling CBS News that it was an “easy decision.”

“I think easy because once I saw all the facts and some of the tactics used by the FBI in this instance and also the legal problems with the case, it was an easy decision,” Barr said.

He was asked how he believed history would remember the reversal. “History is written by the winners, so it largely depends on who is writing the history,” he replied. “But I think a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law.”
