That's because Barr would have been an appropriate channel for the request to occur if the request and investigation were legitimate.

But since the investigation nor the request were legitimate, they were done through back channels inappropriately.

Also, to have a "joint investigation" you would have to open an investigation on both sides. But there is no investigation into the Bidens in the US. Because you would have to get a judge to sign off on it. And no judge is going to sign off on that crazy right-wing conspiracy theory when there is absolutely no evidence backing it up.

That was the whole reason Trump wanted Ukraine to do it. To get around the fact the US legal system WOULDN'T.

@#2 ... That's because Barr would have been an appropriate channel for the request to occur if the request and investigation were legitimate. ...

That seems to be a good assessment, especially based upon the article which says, "Ukraine's top law enforcement officer has said that U.S. Attorney General William Barr never formally contacted his office to request a joint investigation ..."

If the request and investigation were legitimate, then there would have been the formal request for the joint investigation, not the backchannel one.

The last thing they want is a real investigation, cluttered with facts, they want a drama that they call an investigation. Then they collect votes.

In case nobody's noticed, Barr is very careful not to get his hands too dirty ~ lest he finds himself neck deep in the muck of Trump's swamp when it gets drained.
