Skip to comments.AG Bill Barr says CIA did NOT 'spy' on Donald Trump's campaign, slapping down president's claims - and says John Durham's probe is focusing on a 'small group' at the FBI

attorney general Barr is reflecting on the calls he made that benefitted President Trump and a few that didn't in his final days in office – as he said the CIA didn't stray beyond its international spy brief in 2016.
Barr told the Wall Street Journal he was suspicious that CIA agents – who are barred from spying on Americans – had spied on President Trump's campaign. The president repeatedly alleged publicly he was spied on.
But according to Barr, it didn't happen. 'The CIA stayed in its lane,' he told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.

Deep State mouthpiece says Deep State hardly exists
The FBI, but not the CIA
That's not to mean he hasn't, but I can't recall him ever saying it.
I CAN recall dozens of times he's accused the upper echelon of the FBI
OK don’t use the FBI what are the names of the people? Were these people ever given to the grand jury to evaluate? Do they socialize with Barr?
Bagpipe Bob better slow your bagpipes down.
If they appoint a special prosecutor Barr will have to answer some questions.
We have investigated ourselves, and found that we did little wrong
Translation: piles of evidence, but only a small amount that we can’t explain
So either I know way more than Barr does or he is a frickin liar! I have to say if he is just another deep state ass, I bought his schtick hook line and sinker!
And Brennan’s not a Commie Islamist running a coup against Trump for 4 years.
Barr is outta HIS lane.
It’s in your face obvious that Trump was spied on before the 2016 election and after. To suggest otherwise is stupid. There’s texts etc? Good grief, this country is FUBAR...USAbar....
Here we go again. Democrats break the law and never have to worry. Felon Hillary and her mob go free. The little guy goes to jail for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. Nobody is above the law - just Democrats.
yep....good riddance, I say....
the cia certainly knew that one guy ..IIRC, George P...was/had worked with them
Says the blowhard AG that hid the lap tops and Seth Rich info in his buttcrack like the dude that did the papers for Clinton.
CIA outsourced the spying to Five Eyes countries.
So technically he is correct.
They directed it though. Along with the FBI.
Ok so barr is totally screwed Trump. He is deep. I no longer support him... so sorry I held out hope..
So, Barr... Is that what Gina told you?
And if you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you.
CIA uses cut outs.
Like to kill Castro
So no doubt they did here as well.
