BOOM!… Barr Says Spying on 2016 Trump Campaign by Obama Administration Did Occur (VIDEO)
Attorney General Bill Barr said in a Senate hearing Wednesday that he believes Trump’s campaign was spied on during the 2016 election.
“I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016,” Barr said.
“I think spying did occur,” Barr said to Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I am not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated but I need to explore that. I think it’s my obligation… I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that. And I am not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly.
“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal. It’s a big deal.” Barr added after Democrat hack Shaheen asked why he would be investigating the spying by Obama’s corrupt officials.
“Congress is usually very concerned about intel agencies & law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane. We have a lot of rules about that,” Barr said scolding Shaheen.
Barr said there is a “basis” for his concern, but he did not elaborate.
