According to former Attorney General Bill Bar, the Department of Justice is "very close" to having what they need to indict former President Donald Trump.
Dana Perino, co-host of "America's News Room," asked, "Do you have a view on how it ends?"
Barr answered, "As I’ve said all along, there are two questions. Will the government be able to make out a technical case? Will they have evidence by which that they could indict somebody on, including him? That’s the first question, and I think they are getting very close to that point, frankly."

Barr went on, asking if it's wise to indict a former president, asking what it might do to a country if that happens.
He continued, "At the end of the day, there is another question. Do you indict a former president? What will that do to the country? What kind of precedent will it set? Will the people really understand that this is not failing to return a library book? That this was serious?"
Barr continued, adding that he hopes Trump does not receive an indictment.
Barr added, "You have to worry about those things, and I hope that those kinds of factors will incline the administration not to indict him because I don’t want to see him indicted. He’s a former president. But I also think they will be under a lot of pressure to indict him because look, if anyone else would’ve gotten indicted, why not indict him?"
