Dems Demand Evidence After AG Barr Tells Senators FBI Spied on Trump Campaign

HeadlineApr 11, 2019

At a Senate hearing Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers he believes intelligence agencies spied on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and that he was ordering a review into the handling of a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and possible Russian collusion. Democratic lawmakers said that Barr’s statements demonstrated partisanship and loyalty to the president, and that he should provide evidence to back up his claims. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters she does not trust Barr.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Let me just say how very, very dismaying and disappointing that the chief law enforcement officer of our country is going off the rails, yesterday and today. He is the attorney general of the United States of America, not the attorney general of Donald Trump.”
