ACLJ Profile Completion


In a huge revelation, the Attorney General stated he believes spying did occur within his own agency – under the prior Administration – and that he is taking action to expose it and prevent such abuses of power from continuing.

On today’s broadcast, we discussed new testimony by Attorney General Barr before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, during which he confirmed his belief that the FBI and Obama DOJ did indeed spy on American citizens. 

Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen challenged Barr’s previous testimony, stating: “You’re not suggesting, though, that spying occurred?”

The Attorney General simply responded:  

“I think spying did occur. The question is whether it was adequately predicated. . . . I think it’s my obligation. Congress is usually very concerned with intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane.”

When Sen. Shaheen’s fellow Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz tried to redirect the AG, saying the word spying was too “provocative,” Barr coolly replied: “unauthorized surveillance – Is that more appropriate in your mind?”

AG Barr’s testimony this morning echoes what we told you yesterday, when he revealed before the House Appropriations subcommittee that he was “reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all of the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted in the summer of 2016.”

Barr clarified he was not currently planning a full-scale investigation of the FBI. But what needs to be determined is, if spying occurred, which it seems it did, what was the justification? Was this politically motivated spying on an American citizen?

We’ve told you about our own experience with FBI investigative irregularities. We previously filed a FOIA request asking the government to comply with federal law to produce documents about potential corruption at both the DOJ and FBI and had to go to court to get them to cooperate.
The American people have to be able to trust the FBI to follow the rule of law.
