Barr Aimed To Block Turkish Bank Indictment After Erdogan Asked Trump For Help

Another impeachable offense. At the very least Barr should be prosecuted:

A CNN report suggests the attorney general was doing the bidding of an autocratic foreign leader at the direction of President Donald Trump.

…Attorney General William Barr attempted to block U.S. prosecution of a Turkish bank last year after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked Donald Trump for help in the matter, according to a new CNN report that supports earlier accounts.

Barr personally attempted to head off prosecution of Halkbank in a suspected multibillion-dollar scheme to evade sanctions against Iran, CNN reported, citing “a person familiar with the discussions.” He reportedly tried to steer a settlement that would have allowed the bank to dodge an indictment shortly after Erdogan pressed Trump for help last spring.
