Behind the scenes of the 2020 election, those close to the President have indicated that he is growing ever more frustrated.
That isn’t to say that he isn’t also growing annoyed in front of the cameras too, but that was all too obvious to those of us addicted to the political machinations of this great nation.
Outside of the public eye, President Trump appears to be increasingly upset with the lack of action being taken by FBI Director Christopher Wray, whom the Commander in Chief was counting on to launch an investigation into the Biden family in the days before the November election.
The conversations among the president and senior aides stem in part from their disappointment that Wray in particular but Barr as well have not done what Trump had hoped – indicate that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, or other Biden associates are under investigation, these people say. Like others, they spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose internal discussions.
People familiar with the discussions say that Trump wants official action similar to the announcement made 11 days before the last presidential election by then-FBI Director James Comey, who informed Congress he had reopened an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state after potential new evidence had been discovered.
It was only days ago that the President implored the Attorney General to act as well, stating matter-of-factly that Barr would need to get the ball rolling before the election itself.
