Bill Barr hails success of Operation Legend, the DOJ violent crime crackdown initiative

Though outgoing Attorney General Bill Barr may have let President Trump down in regard to investigating allegations of voter fraud and election misconduct, Barr’s tenure was not entirely fruitless.

Case in point, Barr just revealed on Wednesday that the Justice Department’s Operation Legend, designed to crack down on violent crime in major US cities, resulted in more than 6,000 arrests since its launch this summer. 

“Operation Legend removed violent criminals, domestic abusers, carjackers and drug traffickers from nine cities which were experiencing stubbornly high crime and took illegal firearms, illegal narcotics and illicit monies off the street,” Barr announced in a prepared statement.

“I commend our federal law enforcement and prosecutors for seamlessly executing this operation in partnership with state and local law enforcement,” Barr concluded.

Barr’s efforts to provide federal resources to work with local law enforcement officials to crack down on violence in crime-ridden US cities returned thousands of arrests and at least 400 murder charges.

Operation Legend was named in honor of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was murdered in his Kansas City, MO home while asleep. Ryson Ellis was arrested and charged with Taliferro’s murder in August, while Operation Legend was picking up speed.

Barr’s initiative was especially impactful considering the shocking spike in violence, rioting, and murders across the US over the summer. Barr announced his intention to step down from his position as AG earlier in December after reports that his relationship with the president had soured.

In my opinion, Bill Barr, in spite of good things he did, still never really interfered with “Deep State” Why? because he’s PART OF IT.

he needs to go away he has done nothing favorable for America since he was appointed the DOJ …I did not see anything out of him in the beginning …just like Obama some can tell by their first impression and he did not impress me what so ever.he could flap his wings but they flopped.Trump should have fired him long time ago,getting rich off the taxpayers money and doing nothing but like most of the Democrats an oath they took don’t mean a thing to them them.Barr you are like Obama a failure in every aspect but Obama didn’t go away he still still thinks he president running the show.wish all would go away and not return you’ve been a failure to Trump and his people.

I believe that BB is being unfairly targeted …. there are SO MANY THINGS that are going on behind the curtain that some things have to be done in certain ways ….. IF he was still AG, he wouldn’t be able to aid the president because he’d be the AG !!! this way, he is free to get accomplished the things that we need to see done !!! also, I read that part of the reason for his retiring is that his mental abilities are being worn away, like groping joey bite me, but HE has sense enough to step away from the very IMPORTANT JOB of being AG !!! he is NOT deep state !!

I’m sorry, Barr didn’t do this, local law enforcement did it. The DOJ is the highest judicial authority in America and they are tasked with the “Big Stuff”, not street fights. If I’m wrong, tell me, but from what I’ve seen he did very little while in office.

Maybe you should do some research? Operation Legend was a federal DOJ operation that involved Federal, state, and local authorities working in tandem.

I read on Facebook earlier today that DOMINION paid Barr 1.2 million dollars over the time he was supposed to be DOING his job here in the USA. It became more than apparent to me about 7+ months ago that he was NOT doing anything. THEN the biggest tip off is when he said after the Nov 3rd election all of their findings of corruption were to be released….WTF? AFTER the election? WHY AFTER THE ELECTION….so that smelled to high heaven. Then when the election was over…well, it was very apparent that Barr & company were doing zip as usual. Then he gave his resignation. I am sickened by Barr and everyone he colluded with against POTUS Trump. And I am further sickened and completely shocked that it looks to me like everyone who was responsible for this fraudulent election is partying down.

When riots first began last summer and everyone was falling right into the race card and first amendment excuse, AG Bill Barr was the first to stand up hold officials responsible for their failure to keep citizens and their property safe. He may not be perfect, but none of us are.

Sorry Ann, I will need to disagree with your statement. I have no memory of any such thing. Barr was completely silent, and ANTIFA and BLM were wrecking, burning and there were a vast number of people killed during those riots in every Democrat run state on a daily/nightly basis.

If he would have done his job there would no more rioting ,looting,arson and murdering of innocent people!!! He knew that b l m and antifa were domestic terrorist groups, why didn’t he call them as such ?? I see our country going down and a lot of the Government officials are TREASONOUS TRAITORS !!!!

I was hoping that Bill Barr would be a champion for the people, I guess that I was wrong. Does President Trump have any TRUE ALLIES in this government? I think not! It’s become evident that those that claim to be on his side are either cowards or liars. Trump is our true champion and he and his family have gone through hell for US! Now, it’s time for US to take a stand for him. Actually, I should say, Now it’s time for US to take a stand for US! We can’t continue to let bought and paid for politicians to lie to US and betray US!

SUCH AS GENERAL MATTIS/GENERAL MILLEY, TWO WAR MONGERS AGAINST WHAT’S GOOD OF THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S. AND BILL BAR, HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO RESIGN, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN “FIRED”, AND DRAGGED OFF WITH CUFFS ON HIM DIRECTLY TO JAIL, FOR HIS TREASONOUS/OBSTRUCTIONIST CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA/AMERICANS. SAME WITH WRAY/FBI, AND HASPEL/CIA, AND PELOSI/SPEAKER/OBAMA-1ST FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT/HILLARY SHOULD GET THE SAME TREATMENT AS THE ROSENBERGS OF THE 50’S, FOR ALL HER TREASON/OBSTRUCTIONIST/MURDEROUS ACTIONS AGAINST AMERICA.
