US AG Barr claims FBI spied on Trump campaign

Jeffrey Rosen is President Trump’s nominee to be the next deputy attorney general

Democratic lawmakers have questioned U.S. Attorney General William Barr's independence from President Donald Trump, saying his support for Trump's remarks about "spying" during the 2016 presidential election campaign undermine his position.

Ungar added that Barr should have waited for the Inspector General's report before saying that he believed spying on the Trump campaign occurred in the 2016 election. "Everybody knows I won." he said.

The Justice Department's inspector general has been investigating the early days of the FBI's Russian Federation probe, but Barr has said he wants to pull together the different reviews underway and see if there are remaining questions that need to be addressed. "I'm not suggesting those rules were violated but I think it's important to look at".

Media captionBarr told lawmakers on Tuesday that Mueller declined an offered to review his letter What did Trump say? The President of the United States said on Wednesday that the inquiry was an attempted coup against his presidency.

On Tuesday, however, Democrats disputed any notion that Trump is sincerely committed to providing proper health-care protections, with one Democrat saying, "What I'm anxious about are the people I work for: the American people ... and it's our duty around here to look out for their best interests". "This is the attorney general appointed by Trump after Trump criticized Barr's fired predecessor, Jeff Sessions, for failing to protect him. I think it's my obligation".

This is an interesting development when you consider that President Donald Trump previously claimed, without evidence, that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

Fire engulfs Notre Dame cathedral in Paris
Watching such an embodiment of the permanence of a nation burn and its spire collapse is profoundly shocking to any French person. Hugo's 1831 work led to revived interest in the cathedral and a major - partly botched - restoration that began in 1844.

'What I'm most interested in is getting started. on going back to the origins of exactly where this all started, ' the president continued, repeating his call for an investigation of the origins of the Russian Federation probe.

More than an hour after Barr first used the spying word, Schatz asked Barr if he wanted to rephrase what he is doing with the review. In 2014, when Colorado and Washington legalized the recreational use of marijuana, the American Bar Association said the difference between the state and federal laws posed an ethical dilemma for some lawyers. "You normally are, and I want to give you a chance to be especially precise here". He later said he is not sure there had been improper surveillance but will make sure proper procedures were followed. But as of today, Barr wouldn't answer whether the White House has or would see the report prior to its release. "Is that more appropriate in your mind?"

"I've asked DOJ to brief us immediately", the New York Democrat tweeted.

"This process is going along very well and my original timetable of being able to release this by mid-April stands", Barr said. And do you know why we fight back?

Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN.
