Intelligence professionals warned Friday that President Donald Trumps decision to give his loyal attorney general carte blanche to disclose still-secret material from the Russia investigation will let William Barr cherry-pick intelligence to paint a misleading picture about what started the probe.
The president claims his campaign was spied upon, though Trump administration officials have said they have no specific evidence that anything illegal was done when the campaign came under FBI surveillance that was approved by a court.
On Thursday, Trump gave Barr full authority to publicly disclose information about the origins of the investigation the president has repeatedly dismissed as a hoax.
You have to get down to what happened because what happened is a tremendous blight on our country, Trump said, adding that Barr is highly respected and will be impartial in reviewing documents.
But Trumps critics are wary of leaving the decision of what intelligence to release and what should remain hidden in Barrs hands. Barr is a staunch Trump defender who Democrats say spun special counsel Robert Muellers report in Trumps favor, playing down aspects suggesting possible criminal conduct. Mueller has also complained to Barr about his handling of the release of the report.

Yep. Painfully parsed words. These Fake News propagandists have no shame. Goebbels would be proud of them.
They’re scared sh*tless.
Oh what horse crap.
And how dare the attorney general be “loyal”.
Sounds like they fear that some of this will trace back to the AP. Let’s hope their fears are justified, in that case.

Trump is going to reveal the truth. Some may not like it, but the truth will set you free.
The AP are the worst - worse than the New York Times and it has been that way for many years. Sickening.
They are worried. Discrediting anything Barr comes up with...
They’re not afraid that Barr will cherry pick information they’re afraid he will reveal it all! LOLOL
Well, at least she can feed her cats...
Some of them may have to share, but they'll get over the indignity quickly...
“Intelligence professionals warned “
Indicative that Barr is over the target! The $hitting of Bricks has begun in earnest! Just wonder what “profession” they will follow in federal prison? “Soap Dropper,” or “Soap Droppee?”
==> ...investigation will let William Barr cherry-pick intelligence to paint a misleading picture..
Well now, you don’t say! Do you think maybe fate has loosed the dogs of legal war? Aye? You have a proper US attorney general sniffing about your blood trail mate. Best get your pocketbook out for your legal defense so as they can paint a better picture? Poor bastid.
No. Dicknipple DemoKKKrats worry. They are about to see justice, first hand.
For the first time in 2.5 years I think we may actually see some of these evil, vile people see handcuffs. Maybe not all, but some.
If everything was by the book, legal and ethical, there would be NOTHING to cherry pick. It is like Hillary’s e-mails; had they been about the kinds of things an honest campaign and ethical candidate would correspond about, such as logistics, writing a speech, etc., there would have been no there there!
Just remember, some of these “journalists” gave FBI agents dinners, golf outings,theater tickets and other payola to get classified information. If Assaunge is being prosecuted for helping Manning release classified material, I would guess the AG would have no problems indicting “journalists” too.
