Pelosi says Barr comments undermine his role

Barr: 'I think spying did occur' against Trump campaign

Barr told a Senate subcommittee hearing that the report will be intelligible even after it has been redacted.

"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal", Barr told the panel.

President Trump said he has not seen or read the full version of the Mueller report. After a pause, Barr replied in the affirmative: "I think spying did occur".

"I think spying did occur".

Barr signaled at a Senate appropriations hearing Wednesday that he is open to the approach outlined in legislation such as the States Act.

Barr responded, "I'm not sure of all the connotations of that word that you're referring to, but you know - unauthorized surveillance".

President Donald Trump told reporters on Wednesday while discussing the origins of the investigations into his campaign that there had been an attempted coup.

U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation employees deserve better from their leader. The CIA used at least one informer to collect information about it. Barr said at a House hearing Tuesday that the report was coming "within a week".

Co-host Willie Geist asked Coons if he is "confident" he will see the unredacted Mueller report. "The Trump precedent after only two years is that you can fire the FBI director who is running an investigation in which you may be implicated as president".

Some news from Barr: He says Mueller did NOT say that he meant to punt the question to Congress on whether Trump obstructed justice; He said that Mueller did not ask the AG to make the decision either. "I turned it down", Caputo said on Tuesday.

The Justice Department's inspector general has already been investigating the early days of the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

But the attorney general did say he has taken on board some of the criticisms by Republican supporters of President Trump about the way the FBI and Justice Department conducted the investigation. "This was an attempted takedown of a president and we beat them", he said. "The question is whether it was adequately predicated".

Asked if Schiff would seek another briefing from the Justice Department on Barr's latest claim, Schiff said: "We'll certainly try to get to the bottom of numerous things he has been saying over the last two days - his references to investigation into the president's political opponents".

Rather, he said, the probe began with information about a conversation that a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser - known to be George Papadopoulos - "had with an individual in London about stolen emails that the Russians had that would be harmful to Hillary Clinton". The FBI relied on the notorious Steele dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
