    AG Barr: Trump's 2016 Campaign "Was Clearly Spied On," Why Didn't FBI Talk To The Campaign?

    Attorney General William Barr spoke to NBC News’ Pete Williams about the findings of the Justice Department's Inspector General report.

    "It was clearly spied upon. I mean that's what electronic surveillance is," he said. "I think our nation was turned on its head for three years. I think, based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by an irresponsible press. And I think that there were gross abuses of FISA. And inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI."

    That right there, Bob, that's why Barr has rightfully been called on his dishonesty. It's why there's been calls for him to be booted the heck out on account of how he is siding with Donald over his own Department of Justice. He shamelessly backs Trump's paranoia against his own DOJ staff.
    Bob, you can trust your goats to tell you the truth more than you can Barr.

    From what I get with William Barr's, He does every thing possible to protect , or make Trump look better. Even if he has to lie. Barr cant be trusted, and has been caught in lies, to protect Trump.

    I’m wondering if Barr is trying to break Trump’s record for false and misleading statements...

    It does look like Barr regarding this one is with Trump but, only because illegal spying on the Trump Administration did happen

    Barr is a man who respects our laws
    thus we get the truth in this video.

    Spying on enemies of your country bent on destroying it is not illegal. It's prudent.

    Barr made claims during his Congressional testimony about the investigation before he knew anything about it. At the time, he admitted he had no evidence to support his claims. To date, he has yet to provide one iota of evidence to support these claims.

    He's been dishonestly carrying water for Trump since the moment he was appointed. He's not a man that respects our laws or tells us the truth.

    Who spied illegally on the Trump Administration? Who besides Russia and Israel, that is.

    Actual experts put out an official report that this is incorrect. :wave:

    When all evidence points to the contrary, Barr makes a statement contesting everything that is in the report?

    He should resign (not that he will). I would rather see him locked up.

    I am listening to Lindsey Graham interrogate the Inspector General right now and am anxiously waiting for him to turn the mike over to a sane person for awhile.

    Dianne Feinstein. Thank God.

    The FISA warrants were on Clapper only.

    No, illegal spying did not happen, Bob. Barr is a man who disrespects our laws & the truth. You're a better man that that, Bob, don't just listen to what Barr peddles out.

    Barr is an embarrassment to the Justice Department and the FBI.

    Pffft. The IG report concludes the FBI activities were not motivated by bias, much less illegal.

    I'm impressed that Barr was able to say that while Donald was drinking a glass of water.

    That's some vaudeville-level talent right there.

    Well, we sure would not wish to treat future Presidents like that now would we?

    Or is this the way we act now?

    Yes, the FBI is charged with counterintelligence activities.

    They had no reason to spy on Trump.
    Obama sure is being quiet.

    They didn't spy on Trump. Yes there was an investigation into his campaign, but he wasn't the target.
