Why do the DimWits keep attacking AG Barr? Note: The above are my words ... @Sportello gets her panties in a wad when she thinks I misrepresent the title of another site's article. The truth became evident today as Barr tapped Connecticut's chief federal prosecutor, John Durham, to assist in an investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation and the FBI's spying activities on the Trump campaign. Barr announced "Spying on a campaign is a big deal" last month during an appearance before a Senate subcommittee. "Spying on a campaign is a big deal," Barr told lawmakers then. "I think spying did occur. The question is whether it was adequately predicated." Barr also said he did not know whether officials had done anything wrong. Barr said he planned to examine the "genesis and the conduct" of the FBI's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Trump and Republicans in Congress have complained repeatedly that the FBI targeted the president's campaign for political reasons, revealing text messages between two senior officials involved in the probe who expressed their personal contempt for Trump. During his long career at the Justice Department, Durham has taken on a number of special investigations, including an appointment during the George W. Bush administration to investigate the CIA's destruction of videotapes depicting the torture of terror suspects.
