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

City of Minneapolis Backs Down After Requiring Owners of Buildings Destroyed in Riots to Pay Property Taxes
The City of Minneapolis is backing down after seeking to bilk the property owners of buildings damaged in the Minneapolis riots, trying to make them pay property taxes before granting a demolition permit for them to tear down damaged structures.
The city had remarkably been applying a strict legal standard to the owners of buildings that had been destroyed in the riots, without doing so much as even preventing rampaging mobs from damaging or outright destroying 1,500 buildings in the city.
Only twenty buildings wrecked in the wake of the riots have been accordingly demolished, with Minneapolis property owners understandably reluctant to pay taxes on firebombed structures. The city perhaps relented on the policy this week, which is justified with a reaching interpretation of a state law, when it recognized that demanding taxes for riot-torched buildings would have prevented any tentative rebuilding.
Minneapolis’ downtown area would have been stuck with more than a thousand structures and buildings in various stages of blight, sentencing parts of the city to the urban decay seen in other midwestern cities such as Detroit.
Estimates of the range of the destruction inflicted upon the city have varied, but it appears as if initial reports of the destruction were underestimated. City authorities have estimated a massive $55 million of property damage was inflicted, mostly upon small businesses, with more than 700 buildings destroyed, a figure since inflated.
A sizable percentage of the city’s taxpaying homeowner base has indicated that they’re preparing to move the city, leaving Minneapolis perhaps fiscally doomed for its embrace of senseless anarcho-tyranny.
