Attorney General William Barr made it clear that special counsel Robert Mueller did not review how the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation was handled by the Justice Department and the FBI.
During a Fox News interview that aired Friday, Barr said that “no one has really looked at it” and pointed out that Mueller was focused just on investigating Russian election interference and the possible involvement of President Trump’s 2016 campaign.
“The fact of the matter is Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities,” Barr said in an interview that aired Friday. “He was looking at whether or not the Trump campaign had conspired with the Russians. He was not going back and looking at the counterintelligence program.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Barr said that “there is a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened.” Barr said that there were “a number of investigations underway that touch upon it”, including DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into possible Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse, but so far “no one has really looked across the whole waterfront.” Barr has also tasked U.S. Attorney John Durham to review the origins of the federal Russia investigation.
