William Barr doubles down on campaign spying claims, slams Democrats

All the while, Trump has cheered him on. "It doesn't surprise me", the nation's top law enforcement official told host Bill Hemmer during a visit to El Salvador.
Barr toured a jail outside San Salvador - as a crew from Trump's favorite television network, Fox News, followed alongside - and held a news conference to tout collaboration between US and Central American officials that led to the indictments of thousands of gang members "who otherwise might have reached the U.S".
Oh, and what about the charge that Barr lied to Congress?
Barr stressed in his Fox interview that it was of paramount importance "to find out what the government was doing during that period".
Trump handed Barr the signed veto.
In a tweet Friday, the president said his campaign was "conclusively spied on", and said the act amounts to "treason".
Barr hinted at wrongdoing, saying that some of the explanations he's been told about the start of the investigation "don't hang together". But he didn't elaborate. In William Barr, Trump has found an attorney general willing to heed his calls.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department's Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to issue a report soon on his investigation into possible FISA abuse by the Obama administration. Sessions had appointed another USA attorney, John Huber, of Utah, to review aspects of the Russian Federation investigation, following grievances from Republican lawmakers.
When asked about the president's use of the term "witch hunt", he said he was comfortable with it.
Trump has insisted that the Russian Federation investigation was politically motivated and concocted from false allegations to spy on his campaign and ultimately undermine his presidency.
FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress this month that he has no evidence the FBI illegally monitored Trump's campaign and doesn't consider court-approved FBI surveillance to be "spying". So far, only $8.5 billion of that has been paid directly to farmers - and, the New York Daily News reported Thursday, $62 million of the bailout went to a Brazilian pork processing company that doesn't appear to be struggling under the trade war and is owned by two Brazilian brothers who can't leave Brazil because they are being investigated for corruption.
In the Fox interview, Barr said "some very odd developments" took place during the period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, including a January 2017 briefing that intelligence officials gave the president at Trump Tower. A House Intelligence Committee probe found that Obama's DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation used the debunked, anti-Trump dossier funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign to obtain warrants from a secret FISA court to spy on the Trump campaign.
