Barr Unafraid of Democrat ‘Political Circus,’ Pressing Forward with Probe

The Attorney General is going full bore at the law enforcement entities who opened the Russian “collusion” investigation.

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.

Barr continued:

“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.
