The Attorney General of the United States put the Deep State on notice today for the first time since taking office for a second time.
Barr revealed on Tuesday that he is reviewing the “conduct” of the FBI’s original Russia investigation during the summer of 2016, following calls from Republicans to investigate the origins of the probe according to Fox News.
Barr also made mention that Inspector General Michael Horowitz has a pending investigation into the FISA warrants and stated the probe will be completed in May or June.
Barr then said he’s “personally” overseeing the investigation into the counterintelligence investigation from 2016.
“More generally, I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted in the supper of 2016,” Barr testified.
The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes has said he will make 8 criminal referrals into that investigation, and Barr said “Obviously , if there is a predicate for investigation, it will be conducted.”
The Department of Justice and the FBI have seen a mountain of firings and resignations since the unraveling of the fake Russian dossier. Former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, 3rd in charge of the FBI Peter Strzok, among others have all been fired. Several others were also terminated and or resigned.
All of this with the President’s approval rating hitting an all time high of 53% in the latest Rasmussen polls.
