Attorney General William Barr Assembles Team To Investigate FBI’s Investigation On Trump Campaign
By Fox News // April 9, 2019
(FOX NEWS) – Attorney General Bill Barr has assembled a “team” to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, an administration official briefed on the situation told Fox News on Tuesday.
Barr told lawmakers at a contentious hearing on Tuesday that he was reviewing the bureau’s “conduct” during the summer of 2016.
Republicans have repeatedly called for a thorough investigation of the FBI’s intelligence practices following the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and they now appeared to have assurances that such a review was underway.
Barr’s explosive testimony marked his Capitol Hill appearance since revealing the central findings of Mueller’s investigation. Barr was grilled by Democrats on the handling of that summary, which stated the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
Barr was also questioned about the initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil members of the Trump campaign.
