Attorney General Will Barr believes that the FBI spied on Trump’s campaign back in 2016. This is adding fuel to the fire that Trump started when he accused Obama of planting spies. AG William Barr confirmed that he believes what Trump has stated about Obama and the FBI.
"I think spying did occur, yes," AG Barr said
"I'm not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it's important to look at that. And I'm not just talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly," Barr said.
"I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I'm saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it, that's all," Barr also said.
Barr seemed to be in sync with everything that Trump has been saying about the Russia investigation being a witch hunt. It's odd that he is pushing this narrative of the FBI spying on Trump after Democrats asked for the full Mueller Report. Is this a distraction from the Mueller Report by Trump and the Attorney General?
More on what Barr stated concerning the FBI spying on Trump's campaign:
"I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016. And a lot of this has already been investigated and a substantial portion of it has been investigated and is being investigated by the office of (inspector general). But one of the things that I want to do is pull together all of the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the Hill and in the (Justice) Department and see if there are any remaining questions [need] to be addressed."
