Attorney General Barr holds a final press conference

Attorney General Barr held a final press conference yesterday (ahead of his planned departure tomorrow) to announce new charges in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 – a terrorist attack over Scotland that killed 270 people, including 190 Americans. The charges are against a Libyan bombmaker related to the attack.

More context: Barr also drew significant attention for remarks during the press conference noting that he does not plan to appoint a special counsel to probe 2020 election fraud claims or in the ongoing DOJ tax investigation of Hunter Biden.
