Let’s sort out questions about spying
What will the Democrats do now that Robert Mueller’s report has been completed with no problem found with the president? One group wants to continue on the road to impeaching the president. Committee chairmen Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff are some of the representatives supporting this while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not seem to be for it.
One of the things that have occurred is that William Barr has become the attorney general, replacing Jeff Sessions. This seems to have gotten the Democrats’ attention big time. He has experience as he has held the job previously for a different president and therefore has a track record, and is a long-time friend of Mr. Mueller, and is considered a straight shooter.
Mr. Mueller’s report was delivered to Mr. Barr his supervisor, and he delivered it to Congress and the public with some parts redacted to satisfy the law.
Later it came up that Mr. Barr the AG had some unresolved questions and this seemed to cause some excitement for some people especially the Democrats.
Were American citizens spied upon, and if so, was it done legally? When was the spying started? Why was Candidate Trump not informed by the FBI about someone in his campaign? Who authorized the spying? This has brought a lot of excitement from/about the intelligence agencies.
Mr. Barr has since taken action with the supervisors of NSA and the CIA. I would expect ongoing action at Fort Meade and Langley, and he has taken action with John H. Durham a U.S. attorney. It appears Mr. Barr is preparing to find out who did the spying and indeed if they done it legally. Good. We don’t need any presidential or security campaign to go through this again.
We need it done correctly, and if not done correctly, we may need some punishment dished out and the rules changed so it never will happen again. Think about that for a minute
