Here is the @KimStrassel column I just read on air: https://t.co/BVavvzdcu6 Send it everywhere and to everyone. Left wing media has a couple of million in its audience. Center-right media like my show and @WSJ have tens of millions more. Kim S. is over the target. So is AG Barr.— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 3, 2019
.@KimStrassel discusses what she wrote about in her column today re: how very powerful people in DC are panicking because AG Barr is investigating how the whole Russia hoax started. This is why they are frantically trying to discredit him.https://t.co/caTkOXOO00 pic.twitter.com/AN0GYABF6N— Lisa Mei Crowley (@LisaMei62) May 4, 2019
...Mr. Barr made real news in that Senate hearing, and while the press didn’t notice, Democrats did. The attorney general said he’d already assigned people at the Justice Department to assist his investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. He said his review would be far-reaching – that he was obtaining details from congressional investigations, from the ongoing probe by the department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, and even from Mr. Mueller’s work. Mr. Barr said the investigation wouldn’t focus only on the fall 2016 justifications for secret surveillance warrants against Trump team members but would go back months earlier.
He also said he’d focus on the infamous “dossier” concocted by opposition-research firm Fusion GPS and British former spy Christopher Steele, on which the FBI relied so heavily in its probe. Mr. Barr acknowledged his concern that the dossier itself could be Russian disinformation, a possibility he described as not “entirely speculative.” He also revealed that the department has “multiple criminal leak investigations under way” into the disclosure of classified details about the Trump-Russia investigation.
AG Barr has come under intense criticism from House Democrats for his handling of the Mueller report, including releasing a four-page summary before releasing the whole report, which Democrats charge was misleading.— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) May 3, 2019
