Attorney General Bill Barr told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee that he believes spying by law enforcement officials on the 2016 Trump campaign “did occur,” and that he plans on reviewing “both the genesis and conduct” of the Russia investigation, Axios reports.
Said Barr: “I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. But the question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated. And I’m not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated. But I need to explore that.”
However, when pressed if he has any evidence of wrongdoing, Barr said: “I have no specific evidence that I would cite right now. I do have questions about it.”
