President Donald Trump said Attorney General Bill Barr will go down in history as “sad” if he fails to bring charges against Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton.

In an interview on Fox Business this week, Trump ranted about the declassified intelligence assessment released by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe. The documents are related to FBI misconduct and the Russia conclusion investigation. The president also blasted Clinton for her email scandal and said Biden and Obama should be charged with spying on his campaign, Newsweek reports.

“Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes — the greatest political crime in history of our country — then we’re going to get little satisfaction,” Trump told host Maria Bartiromo. He added, “And that includes Obama, and that includes Biden.”

According to Ratcliffe, the documents show that Clinton approved of an effort to “stir up a scandal” against Trump by “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” Obama was allegedly aware of her shenanigans. 

Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee previously rejected the assessment for not containing factual information. 

In a letter to Senator Lindsey Graham, Ratcliffe noted that the Intelligence Committee did not know the “accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”

Meanwhile, Trump said his political rivals “should be indicted.”

“This was the greatest political crime in the history of our country and that includes Obama and it includes Biden. These are people that spied on my campaign and we have everything,” Trump said on Fox Business. 

“Look, we have all the evidence in the world, in addition to that I released everything, every document, I don’t care what it pertains to, I released everything. I’ve declassified, I’m the only one in the country that has the power to do that. I’ve declassified everything. I did it a year ago, actually, for Bill Barr. I declassified everything so they would have no — so there’s not a document they can’t have,” he explained.

“But, it’s still not that easy, you have a deep state, you have a group of people that don’t want to have documents shown, which tells you bad thing, you know, but they — they have to give them ultimately and we’re getting them, you know,” Trump continued. 

When it comes to Barr’s own reputation… “To be honest, Bill Barr’s gonna go down either as the greatest attorney general in the history of the country or he’s gonna go down as a very sad, sad situation,” Trump said.

“He’s got all the information he needs. They wanna get more, more, more, they keep getting more, I say: “You don’t need any more. You got more stuff than anybody’s ever had,”‘ he added.
