Attorney General Barr Admits: DOMESTIC SPYING Did Occur in 2016

Bill Barr’s thoughts on the 2016 election, and the FBI’s role in it, should alarm everyone.

There are certain unscrupulous acts that occur within our federal government that we have, over time and precedent, given the reticent “green light” to.

These acts range from espionage to war, and have all found themselves necessary in some form or another in order to maintain the strength and safety of the nation.  When it comes to folks like the FBI, an even wider berth is often given, due to the simple fact that we, as Americans, may not want to know exactly what debauchery occurs within the bureau.

But when it comes to protecting our democracy from threats “foreign and domestic”, the FBI should be held to the highest standard.  Otherwise, we end up in a mess like we’re in now, where the Attorney General of The United States is pointing fingers at The Bureau, alleging that they may have “spied” on the 2016 Trump campaign.

And he did so on national television.

Attorney General William Barr, defending his decision to order a review of the Trump-Russia probe’s origins, told a Senate panel Wednesday that he thinks “spying did occur” by the government on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

“For the same reason we’re worried about foreign influence in elections…I think spying on a political campaign — it’s a big deal, it’s a big deal,” Barr said in response to a question from the ranking member on the Senate Appropriations subcommittee, Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., who had asked why Barr is looking into the origins of the investigation.

President Trump himself has long held that belief as well, purporting that the FBI’s surveillance of this 2016 campaign was not only passive, but also active thanks to men such as Stephen Halper.

Furthermore, it has been insinuated that the spying may have been paramount in opening the 22 month Mueller investigation, and possibly meant to behoove Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton in the aforementioned election.
