  • Fox News Poll: Five takeaways on the Russia investigation post-Mueller report

"If we're anxious about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be anxious about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale", Barr said in an interview that aired Friday, adding, "I'm not saying that happened, but it's something we have to look at". I don't have somebody out there looking for and protecting my interests.

In the interview, the attorney general said, "government power was used to spy on American citizens, I can't imagine any world where we wouldn't take a look and make sure that was done properly".

During his October 3, 2018, testimony to the House judiciary and oversight committees, Baker testified about his long-time friendship with Mother Jones reporter David Corn.

Last night, the preview of the interview was aired, showing that Barr is going to investigate the investigators concerning the Trump-Russia collusion nonsense because we need to know that the government was doing in 2016. Some of what things don't hang together, some of the explanations of what occurred.

Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, believes Attorney General Bill Barr will get to the bottom of the Russian Federation collusion blame game between former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI Director James Comey. It did not offer a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Attorney General William Barr doubled down in a new interview Friday on his claims that President Trump's 2016 campaign was spied on - and vowed to get to the bottom of "exactly what happened" with counterintelligence activities. Barr is also working with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Durham also is working with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is reviewing alleged misconduct in issuance of FISA warrants, and the role of Federal Bureau of Investigation informants during the early part of the probe, the source told the network. "There's an inspector general probe and there's two U.S. Attorneys under Barr conducting their own reviews", Todd said.

He also dusted off former AG Eric Holder's criticism that he's acting like the president's personal attorney; with Barr adding that Holder actually fits that description when he was running the DOJ into deeper political waters that culminated with the DOJ issuing a spy warrant against a Trump official, Carter Page, based reportedly off a piece of biased political propaganda-the Trump dossier.

James Baker, who was the FBI's general counsel when the Russian Federation probe began, defended the investigation to the Lawfare podcast last week, saying it would've been highly inappropriate for the FBI not to pursue allegations of foreign election interference.

Oh, and it's not just Trump who thinks the Trump-Russia investigation was a witch-hunt.

In the Fox interview, Barr said "some very unusual developments" took place during the period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, including a January 2017 briefing that intelligence officials gave the president at Trump Tower.
