Thank God for Bill Barr. No, seriously, we all, every American should get on our knees and thank Barr for a clean, nonpartisan investigation to get to the bottom of the sabotage against Trump.
Barr has taken so many insults from the left but he has always stayed cool, calm, and collected and just put his head down and did the right thing.
He has fought back against Trump when needed but for the most part, his job, as it was after Watergate, was to get to the bottom of the corruption in the swamp and root it out.
Not for the good of Trump, but for the good of America because Bill Barr doesn’t want his new rule on spying on presidents and candidates to only help Trump in 2020.
No, Bill Barr knows he needs to do this to protect the next presidents, even if they are democrats.
Bill Barr is cleaning up America in the nick of time and we all owe him a debt of gratitude because without him we may have woken up to a very different America in 4 years had Barr not acted to cut the nonsense and hold people to account.
From The Hill:
Attorney General William Barr announced Monday that he would raise the threshold for opening counterintelligence probes into presidential campaigns after accusations that the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign was flawed.
Now, investigations into presidential candidates will require the signature of the attorney general and the head of the FBI, Barr said in a news conference with FBI Director Christopher Wray.
“One of the things that we agreed on is that the opening of a counterintelligence investigation of a presidential campaign would be something that the director of the FBI would have to sign off on and the attorney general,” he said.
Previously, lawyers from the Justice Department would review applications sent to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court and approve any probes, with top official signatures not being required, according to Reuters.
Barr’s comments come after the department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, released a report late last year saying FBI officials made multiple mistakes when applying to the FISA court for the investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. These mistakes made the case seem stronger than it was, Horowitz wrote in his report.
