Attorney General William Barr just reclassified his investigation into the origins of the Russia probe as a criminal inquiry.
This has people on the left very worried.
Many of the same people who pushed the Russia conspiracy for three years are now complaining about Barr’s investigation and trying to discredit him.
Some are even demanding his impeachment.
The Hill reports:
#ImpeachBarr trending on Twitter amid criminal investigation into Russia probe
The hashtag “ImpeachBarr” was trending on Twitter on Friday after the Justice Department announced Thursday night that it was opening a criminal inquiry into its own Russia probe.
After former special counsel Robert Mueller closed the official investigation months ago, a new criminal inquiry will proceed to figure out how the investigation of Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election and President Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia began.
Attorney General William Barr, who has closely reviewed how the department handled the Russia investigation, is under fire for shifting the administrative review to a criminal inquiry and allowing the prosecutor presiding over the inquiry, John Durham, to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, put together a grand jury and file charges.
The tweet below is from the actor John Cryer. Note how he accuses Barr of misleading the public, and not the people who pushed the Russia conspiracy:
Attorney General William Barr willfully misled the American public about the damning contents of the Mueller Report.

This is a former Hillary adviser. He says we now live in a dictatorship. These people are insane.
So William Barr secretly buried the criminal referrals filed against Donald Trump by his own appointees but is now opening up criminal investigations against the president’s perceived political enemies.
We no longer have a republic.
This is a dictatorship.

This is a Democrat member of Congress:
