Something is VERY WRONG here?
This is making the Republicans EXCITED!….And Democrats up in arms!
Donald Trump must be getting ‘woody’….
Do we have a further beatdown against hour OWN government’s law enforcement watchdogs for being suspicious of a President that seemed way too close to Putin?…THAT?…Was doing their jobs….
When later pressed whether he understood the potentially explosive connotations of the word “spying,” Barr clarified that he meant “unauthorized surveillance.”
- Barr: “For the same reason we’re worried about foreign influence in elections, we want to make sure that — I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal. … There were a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there’s an adequate basis before our law enforcement agencies get involved in political surveillance. I’m not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at that.”
- Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.): “But you’re not suggesting that spying occurred?”
- Barr: “I don’t … well … I guess you could — I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. 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.”
When pressed by Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) whether he has any evidence of wrongdoing by the FBI or Mueller in the Russia investigation, Barr said: “I have no specific evidence that I would cite right now. I do have questions about it.”
Why it matters: Defenders of President Trump have long accused Obama-era intelligence officials of spying on the Trump campaign for political reasons, alleging that intelligence tools, like the FISA process, were abused. These claims have not been corroborated….
We have a guy being investigated for crimes by how many arms of law enforcement on state and federal levels?
Trump is calling (Ranting) the investigation an ‘illegal coup’…..’Dirty Cops’.…
Every time someone went to court to challenge Mueller’s operation?…..It was denied by the courts....
Barr cannot refute the judges rulings….
Someone on social media has pointed out that the FBI and other so called “spying’ was authorized by the FISA Court….This appears to be ANOTHER Barr doubtfull view of things….
