AG Barr: “Eh, you say ‘tomato’ I say ‘toe-mah-toe’ … I ain’t calling the ‘spying’ investigation off…”

It’s getting really real.
Yep, he said “spying”…

DC: Barr: ‘I Think Spying Did Occur’ Against Trump Campaign

Attorney General William Barr dropped a bombshell Wednesday, telling a group of senators that he believes spying against the Trump campaign did take place in 2016.

“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” Barr said during an exchange with Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Shaheen asked in a follow-up whether Barr believed the FBI spied on the Trump team.

“You’re not suggesting, though, that spying occurred?” Shaheen asked.

“I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated,” Barr said.

“I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”

Ace @ AoSHQ: AG Barr: “I Think Spying Did Occur” Against Trump Campaign, and I Need to Investigate If It Was Justified or Not

Obama, you might have heard, ran a scandal-free administration.

Except for the matter of weaponizing the intelligence community and DOJ and FBI to spy on a rival campaign in a move that makes Watergate look like a college lark.

Chuck Ross notes that Democrats “bristle” at the word “spy” used to describe Obama’s/Brennan’s/Clapper’s/Comey’s actions.

A friend watching it tells me that liberal Democrat Senator from Hawaii, Brian Schatz, actually said he was worried/bothered that people would hear the Obama government spied on Trump from cable news, by which, of course, he meant “Fox News.”

In addition, Barr said that it was unusual that the target of an alleged foreign intelligence operation would not be informed of this in a defensive briefing. Obama’s spying operation, of course, went out of its way to hide this from Trump and lied to him about it.

There was news Barr would be “getting his arms around” this yesterday, but now comes word he’s recruited investigators to look into the FBI and DOJ…

About damn time.

Mollie Hemingway: Barr Confirms Multiple Intel Agencies Implicated In Anti-Trump Spy Operation – ‘I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly,’ Barr said.

Yep, the MSM is losing its shit…

And the trashing and demonizing of Bill Barr begins.

Meanwhile, “collusion”…

TET: Ties to Ukrainian National a Unifying Theme in Early Attacks on Trump

While special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, some of the key people in creating the Russia-collusion narrative themselves have ties to a foreign nation. Both the Democratic National Committee as well as Fusion GPS—the company hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to research the Trump campaign—were using Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump. Serhiy Leshchenko, a Ukrainian member of parliament, was a common thread involved in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort…
