Posted on 04/10/2019 10:15:46 AM PDT by blam
Attorney General William Barrs comment that he thinks spying did occur by intelligence agencies on the Trump campaign quickly reverberated outside the Senate committee hearing room, raising the hackles of top Democrats.
The top law enforcement officer of the country should not casually suggest that those under his purview engaged in spying on a political campaign, House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a statement. This type of partisan talking point may please Donald Trump, who rails against a deep state coup, but it also strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions.
Schiffs fellow chairman Jerry Nadler (D-CA), head of the House Judiciary Committee, also immediately expressed his displeasure.
Barr somewhat softened his comment later on in the hearing, reclassifying spying as unauthorized surveillance which would rule out the FISA warrant of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Getting a little action....and it ain’t fake news. The cockroaches are scattering.
Yes, the cockroaches are going to see the light of truth and hopefully a bunch of them will pay for their criminality.
Glad to see that Schiff acknowledged that it was a “deep state coup”.
WTF? How does that rule out the FISA warrant?
Well he’s upset all of the right people.
Good. Very good.
Obstruction of Justice! Obstruction of Justice! Obstruction of Justice...
because it was authorized by the court (with bad info)...... But Barr knows that..so there must be something else he sees
our democratic institutions.... that seems to be the problem...
Watergate! Watergate! Watergate! X100
Barr threw a rock into that proverbial pack of dogs.
Thing is - all the mutts are howling.
Why, they scared that the TRUTH is finally coming out..what anyone with an IQ above 5 knew for YEARS, that Obama, knowing that Trump could very well become President, implemented all of this so in case Trump won, he could basically F over his Presidency and make it a living hell..yeah we already knew that..now Im gonna sit back and wait for JUSTICE to finally be done here, or will pigs fly first
Feeling more hopeful that the next 2 yrs of investigations will be about exposing and breaking up the deep state. Not holding my breath yet, just a bit more hopeful....
