Spygate: Attorney General Set to Launch Investigation

Spygate: Attorney General Set to Launch Investigation

Attorney General William Barr is preparing to launch an investigation into the ‘other side’ of the recently-closed Russia probe: accusations from Republicans that government agencies displayed political bias and broke the law while investigating Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. 

“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,” said Barr during a hearing on Tuesday, adding that he “hoped” to release Robert Mueller’s report “next week.”

During a second hearing on Wednesday, Barr said he believed “spying did occur” and said he wanted to make sure there was no “improper surveillance.” He also confirmed he would be working with FBI director Christopher Wray in examining the agency’s counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s presidential campaign.

“That’s great news he’s looking into how this whole thing got started back in 2016,” said Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan. “That’s something that has been really important to us. It’s what we’ve been calling for.”

Central to the investigation is the infamous Steele dossierand how it was used as related to the Russia investigation and to the FBI’s warrant on Carter Page 

Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) on Tuesday asked Barr: “How it came to be that your agency used a salacious and unverified dossier as a predicate for FISA order on a US citizen?”

Barr’s investigation is separate from that of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose investigation is expected to conclude in May or June.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has also promised to pursue the same investigation in the Judiciary Committee he leads.

      I fear that the worst that will come of it is that it will be determined there were procedural and ethical violations, but certainly, no laws were actually broken. It’s sad to say, but the guilty parties are Deep State Operatives with some of the best legal cover on the planet. Most will SKATE, sad to say. And we will be giving them GREAT press for their upcoming book about how they were unfairly targeted by the fascist TRUMP( Orange Man BAD) administration tell all…. Now say it ain’t so.

    I’ve been waiting for this investigation of the investigation for two whole years! Ahhhh at last, after two + years and close to 30 million of the taxpayers’ dollars wasted on an investigation that most of us knew was for the explicit purpose to trip up Trump rather than GETTING ANY FACTS on Russian collusion. Curses, foiled again, said the Libs. We are about to begin at the beginning of the 2016 Presidential Election where Russian collusion was indeed in progress. Yes, there was Russian collusion all right, but it wasn’t with Donald Trump and the RNC but IT WAS WITH . . . This will prove to be the damndest, most disgraceful political scandal in American history.

    If there is a full reveal, it’ll make Watergate look like a jaywalking violation.

    This is our fault collectively. We allowed politicians to become so important, far beyond the Constitutional limits, that we allowed a permanent political elite to take power.

    The one thing power craves is more power. So they’ve upped the ante by making their term in office NOT about the welfare of the nation, but perpetuating and extending that power.

    You Trump fans may adore your guy but he’s simply the “can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” result of all this. You think you need a powerful politician to “make America great” instead of doing it yourselves.

    And of course now both sides are engaged on an all-out power struggle that has Zero to do with what they’re supposedly sent there to do.

    And you don’t care. You keep encouraging them.

    You get what you vote for.
