Barr forms team to probe FBI actions in Russia investigation: report

Post by 1989TransAm » Tue Apr 09, 2019 11:53 pm

Finally a step in the right direction. A coup was attempted on the President of the United States.

"Attorney General William Bar has reportedly formed a team to review actions of Justice Department and FBI officials leading up to the launch of the federal probe into President Trump's campaign and possible Russian collusion.
Bloomberg reported Tuesday evening that Barr has assembled a team to review certain counterintelligence decisions made by Justice Department and FBI officials including during the probe into Trump's campaign during the election in the summer of 2016.
Barr had testified before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Tuesday that he was reviewing "conduct" from around that period.
“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016,” he said.
News of the review comes following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
Mueller was appointed as special counsel in May 2017 to take over the Russia probe after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.
Barr’s review is reportedly separate from the current investigation being conducted by the Justice Department inspector general’s office, Bloomberg reported.
The attorney general said during his testimony that he expects the internal inspector general review to be completed by May or June.
Republicans have long argued that anti-Trump bias at the FBI triggered the investigation and the "Steele Dossier," controversial opposition research conducted on the Trump campaign.
Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) during Barr’s hearing questioned if the Justice Department would investigate “how it came to be that your agency used a salacious and unverified dossier as a predicate for FISA order on a U.S. citizen?”
Trump and his allies have claimed that the dossier was used to obtain a secret warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, Bloomberg noted.
Comey, however, rejected that assertion last year when he testified before Congress. He said the investigation was opened the officials learned that another Trump campaign aide, George Papaopoulous “had with an individual in London about stolen emails that the Russians had that would be harmful to Hillary Clinton.”
Mueller concluded his investigation last month and Barr summarized the contents in a March 24 letter, revealing that the special counsel did not “establish” that associates or members of the Trump campaign coordinated or conspired with the Russian government.
Barr’s summary noted that Mueller did not make judgement on whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr wrote that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reviewed the evidence and determined it insufficient to accuse Trump of obstructing the investigation.
Bar told lawmakers during his Tuesday testimony that he will release a public version of Muller’s report “within a week.”"

Then-Attorney General Barr supported the president's decision in the Iran-Contra case, which gave clemency to people who had been officials in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. He had been set to go on trial to face charges about lying to Congress.

To the man who led the Iran-Contra investigation, however, the pardons represented a miscarriage of justice.

The main thing is Barr said there was spying and he will be looking into it.

He also said that if there really was a Russian hacking threat tried on the trump campaign,,the campaign should have been notified. They weren't, because there wasn't a real threat,,just the fake threat.

Who wants to guess who will be the first lefty to sing? I think it will be comey. I think that because when he was asked recently if there indeed was spying on trumps campaign, he said if there was, we only did if it was authorized.

Hmm, before he said no...now he's changing his mind. He's getting ready to spill his guts to get a deal so he can walk
