James Comey Speaks Out Over Barr’s ‘Spying’ Allegations
During a circus-like testimony hearing before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr made a rather suspect comment when he claimed that the Trump Presidential Campaign was spied on and that he would like to “explore” the issue.
“I think spying did occur,” Barr said. “But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”
Former FBI director James Comey, seemingly alarmed by that claim, weighed in immediately.
“I have no idea what he’s talking about so it’s hard for me to comment,” Comey said at a Hewlett Foundation conference. Adding, Barr’s reputation should earn him the “presumption” that he “will stand up for truth.”
“Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI ’SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.’ Andrew McCarthy says, ‘There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.’ If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”
