t’s about time to have a strong U.S. Attorney General in William Barr who also served as U.S. Attorney General under former President George W. Bush. This new Republican attorney general has the Democrats scrambling to find ways to obstruct and delay this man who dropped a major bomb on the U.S. Congress, mainstream media and the public.

Barr appeared before two congressional oversight committees for the first time last Tuesday and Wednesday to answer questions about the yet-to-be released 400-page report from FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Barr also went over his annual budget request for the U.S. Department of Justice. Questions centered on Mueller’s report – not the budget request. Repeatedly Barr was asked about the specifics of the Mueller report and Barr refused to answer any of the questions citing that he would release a redacted version of Mueller’s report within a week. However, he did say he would return to answer their questions after the report is released and studied.

But mainstream media and the Democrats spit their water and gasped when Barr revealed during questioning that he is assembling a team or “panel” as he called it to investigate how the original Russia/Trump collusion probe got its start under former FBI Director James Comey and his close associates at the FBI, the U.S. Department of Justice and national security agencies.
“I am going to be reviewing both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign in 2016 … I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal … I think spying did occur,” said Barr. “More generally, I am 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.
“This is not launching an investigation of the FBI. Frankly, to the extent there were issues at the FBI, I do not view it as a problem of the FBI. I think it was probably a failure of the group of leaders – the upper echelons of the FBI. I think the FBI is an outstanding organization and I am very pleased Director Chris Wray is there.
“If it becomes necessary to look over former officials, I expect to rely on Chris and work with him. I have an obligation to make sure government power is not abused and I think that’s one of the principal roles of the attorney general.”
For President Donald Trump’s supporters and other political junkies Barr’s words were a long-awaited breath of fresh air coming out of swampy Washington.

“It was an illegal investigation,” President Trump told reporters Wednesday at the White House. “Everything about it was crooked … It was an attempted coup.”
The president also stated that he was happy with Barr for having the courage to uncover the misgivings of the Mueller report and those behind it.
“There is a hunger for that to happen,” he said.
Of course, the Democrats will nit-pick every word of the soon-to-be-released Mueller report, but behind the scenes the new attorney general is about to learn just how dirty Campaign 2016 really was and how worthless the Mueller report really is.
