U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Monday announced that he doesn’t expect the Department Of Justice (DOJ) to investigate either Barack Obama or Joe Biden regarding the Russia probe.

“As to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr said at a press conference. “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”
