Attorney General William P. Barr sat down for an interview with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer in El Salvador Friday morning, and made it perfectly clear that he is pressing forward in probing the conduct of law enforcement in relation to President Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
According to Fox, Barr said that America must know “exactly what happened” to the Trump campaign. Barr has said that law enforcement spied on the Trump campaign, and wants to find out if that spying was warranted. He is now probing the origins of the Russian “collusion” investigation.
He has been harassed by congressional Democrats with subpoenas and contempt resolutions despite complying with nearly all of their demands, but remains undeterred.
“That’s part of the usual … political circus that’s being played out. It doesn’t surprise me,” he told Fox.
Barr said that his team is beginning to gather information.
“The first step is to find out exactly what happened, and we’re trying to get our arms around that, getting all the relevant information from the various agencies and starting to talk to some of the people that have information,” he said.
“The fact of the matter is Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities. He was looking at whether or not the Trump campaign had conspired with the Russians. But he was not going back and looking at the counterintelligence program. And we have a number of investigations underway that touch upon it — the main one being the office of inspector general that’s looking at the FISA warrants.”
Earlier this week, Barr tapped U.S. Attorney John Huber of Connecticut, a federal prosecutor, to get to head the investigation.

Berkeley Thug Arrested, Jailed After Hate Crime Threats Targeting Asians
Another white nationalist crime?
A Berkeley, California man with an extensive criminal history has been arrested and jailed after threatening Asians online. Reginald Jackson was jailed for violating terms of his parole after a judge learned of online threats the repeat felon leveled towards members of the Asian community.

Jackson has been previously convicted of attempted robbery as a minor, assault with a deadly weapon, obstruction of a police officer, and multiple counts of possessing weapons as a felon.
A judge ordered Jackson to be jailed on a parole violation with a bond of $190,000, citing “incredible concern” with the frequency of his arrests on Tuesday. It’s unclear if Jackson, who the Oakland Police Department has identified as a gang member, will face criminal charges related to his violent threats leveled against Asians online.
Jackson’s arrest comes as members of the Asian community are drawing attention to a slew of violent crimes targeting Asians in California and across the country. In spite of video evidence revealing that some of the prominent crimes in question have been committed by blacks, protest movements in response to the crimes have blamed supposed “white nationalists” for the crimes. A left-wing protest in New York City blamed “white supremacy” for the hate crimes, seemingly looking the other way at the dynamics behind the incidents.
Several hundred people from the Washington Square Park "Unite Against White Nationalism" rally are now marching through Chelsea.

There’s reason to believe that the crimes in question have been enabled by soft-on-crime practices utilized in California and New York, where repeat offenders are often released from the criminal justice system with a slap on the wrist. If members of the community continue to blame fictitious bogeymen for their occurrences, it’s likely the racially charged hate crimes will continue.
