Bill Barr was interviewed this morning on Fox News and he readily admitted that the questions he’s been asking since he came into office have not found good answers for what really happened in 2016 regarding the FBI and the Trump campaign:
FOX NEWS: You said back in April that you thought there was spying going on in the Trump campaign. When do you think that started?
AG BILL BARR: I’m not going to speculate when it started. We’re going to find out when it started… the explanations don’t hang together. pic.twitter.com/ZISRdlo7ZL

Barr wouldn’t speculate as to when the spying began, but said we’ll all know when his investigations reveal what really happened.
Barr also said Nancy Pelosi’s accusation that he lied under oath was laughable and that it was only made to try and discredit him:
AG Bill Barr says it is “laughable” to claim he lied to Congress, as @SpeakerPelosi has.

Barr suggests that Democrats may be trying to discredit him over fear of what his review of what happened during the 2016 election may turn up.
I gotta say, I really like Bill Barr. I always liked Sessions and felt like he was a good man in a tough job, but Barr takes it to a whole nother level!
