Attorney General William Barr said the FBI likely acted in “bad faith” when they launched their counterintelligence probe into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, Barr contested the Inspector General report’s conclusion that the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Trump wasn’t motivated by political bias, asserting the bureau acted improperly before and after Trump took office with the support of the mainstream press.
“I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press,” Barr said. “I think there were gross abuses of FISA and inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI.”
Barr pointed out that the IG’s FISA found the FBI used multiple spies and surveillance techniques against the Trump campaign, contrary to the mainstream media calling that a conspiracy theory.
“It was clearly spied upon,” he said. “That’s what electronic surveillance is…going through people’s emails, wiring people up.”
Watch the video:
[@realdonaldtrump's campaign] was clearly spied upon. I mean, that’s what electronic surveillance is.
I think wiring people up to go in and talk to people and make recordings of their conversations is spying.
