The William Barr Investigation

We have had other investigations, so I'd like to have the components of the Barr Investigation separate from memes, and Trump threads which will certainly be expanding beyond Trump and focusing on his political opponents, which is soon to get underway.

Currently, Barr said not too long ago he believes there was spying being conducted on another campaign.

Does he believe, or does he know? Jerry asserts differently here.

Re: The William Barr Investigation

Yes!!! I love investigations. I often watch Investigation Discovery. I wondered when there would be an investigation of an investigation. My curiosity has now been answered. This could be a yearly thing where they just investigate each other back and forth. We could then put a Roman numeral after each one, kind of like the Super Bowl of investigations.

Re: The William Barr Investigation

I wonder what kind of time limit Barr will get for his investigation? What is acceptable these days - like a week before people start saying it's gone on too long and people should just "get over it"?

Re: The William Barr Investigation

A Presidential campaign spoke with Russians who's Russian phones and communication devices were being monitored probably by the NSA. Yeah, that's really "spying" on a campaign. Here's a tip, don't fuck around with enemies of the US in a Presidential campaign and this won't happen.

I was actually listening earlier today and he sort of “walked back” his spying comment. At least partially.

Regardless of word games, I’m kind of not getting it. With just the public know items, an “investigation” objectively should have taken place on the Trump Campaign.

So "unauthorized surveillance" is better?

It wasn't just a change in that one word/phrase.

Then: "I think spying did occur."

Now: "I want to make sure there was no unauthorized surveillance."

Re: The William Barr Investigation

This quote from Barr had me laughing out loud at the irony:
"I feel an obligation to make sure government power is not abused"

Re: The William Barr Investigation

How is accessing and dumping private emails and discussions held in those private emails to the public not considered a form of unauthorized surveillance? Sure, you're not actively watching and listening to a subject or subjects, but you are able to read and derive meaning from a form of communication that was thought to be private.

Exactly what I was thinking with the thread title.

Last week: "The Mueller Report COMPLETELY exonerates President Trump!"

Re: The William Barr Investigation

This Barr investigation is a witch-hunt.

#barrwitch-hunt.

We might as well give them their own tactics.

Well, one assertion does logically lead to the other.

Do you think Barr will be able to run this investigation fairly?

That's not surveillance. That's theft. Which is interesting Dems never really went down that hole of who stole those emails and imo, were more focused on the "bigger picture" of Russian Collusion. Bad mistake.

Barr is probably going off the accusation of false documentation, used for FISA warrants to surveil Trump campaign members (maybe even those on other campaigns).
