Oh here we go. Barr is telling Congress the FBI spied on the Trump campaign

Attorney General William Barr elaborated on his statement yesterday that he is putting together a team to review the origins of the FBI’s investigation into Trump’s campaign.

He said he believes there was “spying” on Trump’s campaign, a claim the president has frequently made, and he wants to determine whether that surveillance was justified.

Investigation of a criminal enterprise <> Spying.

Spying is what the Trump campaign was soliciting from the Russian government.

I have an impression you boyz are underestimating the significance of this move....

Barr’s redacted Mueller document must be really bad. Even with the redactions.

He is as annoying as Trump to listen to. He appears to contemplate every word in order to make the best subtle, political comment on whatever he's saying.

Well, when you learn that a member of one campaign's foreign policy advisory panel is bragging to strangers that he knows the Russians have dirt on Clinton, and could probably personally set up a meeting between Putin and Trump if he wanted (wink, wink), it would kind of be an abrogation of FBI responsibilities not to investigate it "spy", y'know?

It will be very interesting if he redacts parts of the unclassified summaries that the Mueller team wrote into the report. Very interesting indeed.

But the Mueller report isn't going to save us.

Senator Mark Warner said he was “amazed” that Attorney General William Barr would say there was “spying” against Donald Trump’s campaign.

The Virginia Democrat and vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee told CNN it was “disrespectful” to the law enforcement professionals who work at the Justice Department to make such a claim.

It shows a “lack of understanding or willful ignorance of what goes into a counter-intelligence investigation,” he said.

“He almost seems to be endorsing one of these theories that has been debunked time and time again,” Warner said.

Willam Barr clarifies his prior comments about spying on the Trump campaign: “I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I am saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it. That’s all.”

Yet, he said--
“I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur,” Barr said during a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

No, very likely not. But I'm really looking forward to hearing what Mueller has to say about all this. I think his testimony will provide a welcome contrast to Barr's expertly crafted squirmy responses. I expect there will large gap between the impression of integrity Mueller leaves compared to Barr. Will the partisan Barr feel compelled to "take down" a "just telling ya what happened" Mueller?

But, ya, Mueller's testimony isn't going to save us. But every bit of light we can shine will help us through the darkness.

I honestly thought that in addition to sounding as if he weighed every word, he sounded as if he is on some sort of medication (or drug) that made him relaxed enough for me to be hyperaware of it every time he said anything. He didn't seem to be engaged at all.
