Panic in DC: Attorney General Barr Tells Congress Evidence of Spying on the Trump Campaign “Is a Big Deal.”

Elder Patriot – It appears that Attorney General William Barr is the committed patriot we were hoping he would be when President Trump nominated him to be the nation’s top cop.

With our republic literally hanging by a thread, we worried because Barr was the last man standing between We the People and the police state we had been evolving into under the Obama administration.

Barr, at least temporarily, allayed our fears that he might be another appointee of the swamp, by the swamp, and for the preservation of the swamp with his comments to congress this morning.

“One of the things that I want to do is pull together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the Hill and in the department and see if there are any remaining questions to be addressed.”

When asked why he felt the need to do that he responded:

“Well, for the same reason we’re concerned about foreign influence in elections.  We want to make sure that during elections… spying on a political campaign is a big deal.

“The generation that I grew up in, which was the Vietnam War, a period where people were concerned about spying on anti-war people and so forth by the government.  

“And there were a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there was adequate basis before our law enforcement agencies get involved in political surveillance.

“I’m not suggesting those rules were violated but I think it’s important to look at that.

“I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily but intelligence agencies more broadly.”

“I think spying did occur.  Yes, I think spying did occur.

“The question is whether it was adequately predicated.  I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.

“I think it is my obligation.”
