During his appearing before Congress earlier this week, Attorney General William Barr was asked if he believed that there was spying on the Trump campaign.
After trying to avoid giving a direct answer, he was forced to admit that he does believe that the FBI did spy on the Trump campaign.
Barr also stated that he believed that spying on a political opponent was very wrong.
When pressed about the obstruction of justice issue in relation to the Mueller report, Barr said that there was insufficient evidence to support an obstruction of justice charge, thus fully exonerating President Trump.
Breitbart – Attorney General William Barr Says He Thinks FBI Spied on Trump Campaign – Attorney General William Barr told senators during a hearing Wednesday that he thinks that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) did spy on the Trump campaign.
“Yes, I think spying did occur,” Barr said. “But the question is whether it was predicated — adequately predicated, and I’m not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that. I think it’s my obligation. Congress is usually concerned about intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane, and I want to make sure that happened. We have a lot of rules about that.”
The attorney general said that he has not yet set up a team to review the FBI’s actions, despite a Bloomberg report on Tuesday that alleged he has formed a team.
“I haven’t set up a team yet but I have in mind having some colleagues pull all this information together and let me know whether there’s some areas that should be looked at,” he said…
If Barr keeps true to his word and investigate what led up to the dossier, those behind the dossier, those who financed the dossier, those who used the dossier to illegally obtain the FISA warrant that was used to spy on the Trump campaign and those involved in the counterintelligence investigation into President Trump, then a lot of Democrats should be getting very nervous.
It wouldn’t bother me if many of them left the country to avoid possible prosecution of their crimes. better having them gone from the country than having taxpayers paying for their prison upkeep.
