AG Bill Barr Confirms all Spygate Perpetrators Worst Fears: Testifies to Congress He Plans to Root Out and Bring to Justice Responsible for Surveillance on the Trump Campaign
Now that the nearly 3-year ordeal of a Russian Collusion hoax perpetrated against Donald Trump and his administration is over and the Mueller Report is imminent, Attorney General William Barr has said the magic words we’ve all been waiting for: And he said them under oath, testifying to Congress with many of his targets in the audience.

During William Barr’s questioning by Congress, Barr swore what we’ve been waiting for and slammed any hopes Democrats might’ve had that Barr was going to allow those who conspired against Donald Trump to continue, unabated.
From Illicit Info: That narrative, the seeds of which were planted by former President Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice’s strange email to herself, that became the subject of a letter from Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and member Lindsey Graham, was meant to give cover to the Spygate conspirators:
Who sends an email to themselves unless they thought they would need an insurance policy against those who ordered her to go after Trump? There’s more:
The plot is getting thicker and making more sense now.
… and scene!
The email to memorialize the discussions of a meeting the took place two weeks before your administration was ending? This is clearly a cover your ass moment to suggest that the investigators were really left with no alternative because of the “evidence” they had that Trump was a Russian asset.
Sundance explains the value of Rice’s email in that instance:
…”we were in uncharted territory, and customary departmental rules, processes and procedures were not equipped to deal with a political campaign, president-elect and incoming President/Administration who were likely under the control of the Russian government”… “we couldn’t take the chance of being wrong”…. “we had to act as if that possibility was true”…. “so we tried to keep everything by the book, yet we needed to be mindful of the White House as an adversarial entity”…
Into this narrative Nadler, Schiff, Cummings and Pelosi will say: “my God, those poor intelligence officials and what they suffered through to protect our country. If President Trump had not violated every rule of ethical political conduct, the intelligence apparatus would not have been under such pressure. It’s Trump’s fault….. Impeach!!”
… or something like that.
The media will do the rest.
This seemingly innocuous exchange that occurred this morning between Rep. Shaheen and AG Barr begins innocently enough:
Barr tells Rep. Shaheen: “One of the things that I want to do is pull together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the Hill and in the department and see if there are any remaining questions to be addressed.”
Barr then delivers a velvet sledgehammer shattering the conspirators hopes that Barr would accept the narrative Rice hoped the new AG would be accepting of.
Shaheen seems determined to subtly paint Barr as a revenge-seeking Trump sycophant but he delivers the perfect response:
“And, can you share with us why you feel the need to do that?”
Barr didn’t hesitate:
“Well, for the same reason we’re concerned about foreign influence in elections. We want to make sure that during elections… spying on a political campaign is a big deal.
“The generation that I grew up in, which was the Vietnam War, a period where people were concerned about spying on anti-war people and so forth by the government.
“And there were a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there was adequate basis before our law enforcement agencies get involved in political surveillance.
“I’m not suggesting those rules were violated but I think it’s important to look at that.
“I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily but intelligence agencies more broadly.”
This guy Barr is good.
Barr confirms that he is going to focus his investigation on the origins of the intelligence community’s attempted coup against Trump. Only in this way can Barr determine where the intelligence community went off the rails.
This was not the logical answer any of the Spygate conspirators, or their Democratic defenders, wanted to hear.
This strategy bypasses any excuses by the conspirators that they were navigating uncharted waters and had to make up new rules as the went along.
Barr is promising congress that he is going to determine if evidence shows the conspirators created those uncharted waters that they later found themselves on.
Barr is aware of the massive amounts of that evidence that were kept from the public by his predecessors and that President Trump has been waiting to declassify. That includes:
