Bill Barr goes on the attack, reveals the Obama-connected crux of his ongoing investigation

If Barr’s hunch is correct, there could be a major reckoning on deck for the US intelligence community and administration of a former President.

The turmoil of our nation’s capital has turned ever more turbulent this week with Attorney General Bill Barr going on the offensive.

Perhaps “the offensive” was a bit of an understated phrase.  Bill Barr in on a warpath.

Emboldened by Robert Mueller’s decision not to charge the President of the United States with any further crimes after an exhaustive, expensive, and lengthy investigation into the 2016 campaign, Attorney General Bill Barr has vowed to “investigate the investigators”.  This means, for all intents and purposes, that the AG will now dive deep into the origins of the RussiaGate theory, and in doing so, take a good, hard look at those who instigated the investigation.

At the center of this controversy is a salacious, unverified document known simply as “The Steele Dossier”.

Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer in the interview aired Friday that one portion of the review — which he has tapped U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead — would cover the time period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, saying “some very strange developments” took place during that time.

Those strange developments will now be under the microscope.

Barr specifically was referring to the early January 2017 briefing intelligence officials gave then-president-elect Trump at Trump Tower, and “the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.” At that meeting, Trump was briefed by intelligence and law enforcement officials on Russian election meddling — and was also informed by former FBI Director James Comey about the now-infamous anti-Trump dossier which included salacious allegations against him. Details later leaked to the press.

“That’s one of the things … we need to look at,” Barr said of the briefing.

The Steele Dossier has been purported to contain evidence that Vladimir Putin has in his possession incriminating evidence of Donald Trump’s unsanitary experience with sex workers from Moscow – an insinuation that has not only been deemed unverifiable, but may in fact simply be regurgitated rumors once published in The Wall Street Journal.

If the Steele Dossier was used in the issuing of a FISA warrant to wiretap then-candidate Trump’s 2016 campaign, the outrage among the American public will be palpable and vociferous.
