Democrats are about to find out that Attorney General Barr is no Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump is no Mitt Romney. There are an awful lot of people who are shaking in their boots right now, and they should be. A bright light is about to be shined on a plot that was never supposed to be exposed, because Donald Trump was never supposed to win the election, and the cockroaches are beginning to scatter…
Zero Hedge reports – In his first pair of interviews since being sworn in, Attorney General Barr told Fox News and WSJ that he was pursuing the investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe – an investigation he has tasked
John Durham, the US Attorney from Connecticut, with leading – because Americans need to know whether the government “put a thumb on the scale” to try and undermine President Trump both during the campaign and during the first two years of his term, just like “we need to ensure that foreign actors don’t influence the outcome of our elections.”
Separately, he told WSJ that “government power was used to spy on American citizens…I can’t imagine any world where we wouldn’t take a look and make sure that was done properly.”
During his interview, Barr told Fox New’s Bill Hemmer: “People have to find out what the government was doing during that period. If we’re worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale.”
In response to Barr’s interviews, President Trump tweeted about his campaign being spied upon, calling it “TREASON”:
My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!
