Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader responded to democrats angry reactions towards Attorney General Barr statements on FBI’s alleged spyig on Trump’s campaign.
Attorney General William Barr during his testimony before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee indicated that federal authorities had spied on the Trump campaign in 2016. “I think spying did occur,” Barr said. “The question is whether it was adequately predicated. …Spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”
McConnell, when asked by Bret Baier on his thoughts about the reactions to AG Barr, said that ‘there was already an Inspector General at the Justice Department looking at that particular problem, that was related to the deputy of FBI, who was dismissed…it’s worth a look. And this Attorney general is within his right to do that.”
