BREAKING: Barr Confirms Obama Admin Spied on Trump 2016 Campaign, Investigation Underway
During his second day of Congressional testimony, Attorney General William P. Barr said that he plans to investigate whether authorities illegally spied on President Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
He told Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) that he thinks the “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign, much to her obvious chagrin, and then explained that the question is whether it was “adequately predicated.”
In other words, did the authorities, whom we know obtained a FISA warrant from a FISA court to spy on the Trump campaign, have good reason to do so, or was it all a politically motivated sham?
Big League Politics has reported that disgraced former FBI Director James Comey approved the FISA warrant without any knowledge of Russian “collusion.”
ired former FBI director James Comey approved the series of FISA warrants to surveil President Donald Trump’s team without having any knowledge whatsoever that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia.
With no evidence of any Russian collusion, and with the Operation Crossfire Hurricane conspiracy falling apart, it is now important to look at James Comey’s own admissions in his behind-closed-doors testimony with House Republicans including from the Oversight Committee. The aggression with which the Freedom Caucus Republicans went after Comey clearly stunned the disgraced ex-director and his Democrat supporters including Elijah Cummings.
Comey said in his testimony that in July 2016, when all of this started, the FBI “didn’t know whether we had anything.”
Comey reportedly offered his first sign-off on a FISA warrant in October 2016, and those FISA’s kept getting renewed for a while until good faith actors in the Trump administration realized the extent of what was going on.
Attorney General Bill Barr says spying on the Trump campaign "did occur." But the question, he says, was it "adequately predicated?" He's conducting an investigation to find out. https://t.co/Zi823UT9w2 pic.twitter.com/qe5SJ6UaNT
