    Keep in mind this has only just begun and is in response to talking about investigating how this all originated. What will happen if folks start getting subpoenaed? How far up the chain of command will they be willing to go to save themselves?

    Bill Barr vows to uncover 'exactly what happened' with Russia probe, says explanations have been 'inadequate'

    Attorney General Bill Barr, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, said the country must know “exactly what happened” with counterintelligence activities conducted during the 2016 election -- and he is determined to get to the bottom of the case.

    In his first interview since becoming attorney general, Barr spoke to “America’s Newsroom” host Bill Hemmer during a visit to El Salvador for meetings with law enforcement officials. In pointed terms, he fired back at Democrats who have castigated him over his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report -- calling Speaker Nancy Pelosi's charge that he lied to Congress "laughable" and dismissing an attempt to hold him in contempt of Congress.

    "That's part of the usual ... political circus that's being played out. It doesn't surprise me," he said.

    And the nation's top law enforcement official provided new details about the recently announced probe into the origins of the Russia investigation, defending his decision to pursue it and stressing that many of the answers he's gotten so far have been "inadequate."

    My biggest concern is that this is all going to be quietly wrapped up with a "mistakes were made" statement and a few subordinates taking the fall, and then we'll never hear another word about it.

    I suppose that's possible, but that generally happens when an administration is investigating itself because the scandal is too big to cover up a la the IRS charitable organizations tax exemptions scandal of the Obama years.

    And Barr seems a bit determined to bring this to the fore.

    My hope is that the democrats have pissed off Barr enough with their contempt and liar nonsense that he will not back down or sweep it under the rug.

    Having beaten the COLLUSION horse to death, I thought it would be good to look at the FISA Probe.

    This thread is NOT an "I hate Trump" thread, so please leave that elsewhere.
    This thread is NOT a rehash of the whole COLLUSION / OBSTRUCTION thing - there are plenty of places to spew forth ignorance on that.

    This is specifically about the FISA requests, and the IG probe (or other investigations) into same.

    As Democrats mull how far to push the impeachment envelope against President Trump after Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election but punted on obstruction of justice charges, another investigation could further blunt their attempts to oust the president from office or damage his re-election chances.

    Amid calls from Trump and his supporters to “investigate the investigators,” Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been hard at work over the last year looking into the sources and methods the FBI used to begin surveillance of a one-time Trump campaign adviser based at least in part on discredited information gathered by a former British spy.

    That packet of intelligence, known as the “Steele dossier,” contains salacious and unsubstantiated details about Trump’s alleged romps with Russian prostitutes, along with business and political quid pro quos with Russian officials.

    Attorney General Robert Barr said the inspector general is wrapping up his probe and could release a final report as early as next month.

    Those interviewed by Horowitz and his team over the past year, according to Politico, say he seems intensely focused on undermining the dossier and credibility of Christopher Steele, the former British MI6 agent who produced the document. Steele had served as a confidential source for the FBI since 2010 until a falling out over his leaks to the media about the Trump-Russia probe....
    First of all, the investigation into Russian interference and the possible collusion with the Trump campaign didn't begin with the credible evidence coming from the former British spy Christopher Steele. It began as a result of Trump advisor Papadopolis telling an Australian official about his knowledge concerning possible Russian interference. That it began with the Steele Dossier is what you keep hearing in the GOP propaganda bubble. It didn't! The Steele Dossier hadn't even been released at that time.

    That's because you are both blind and naive. Obviously there is not much that can be done about that. If you can't tell fact from fiction, truth from lies, at this point, then obviously you never will.
