CNN: The inspector general says the FBI's investigation was properly opened. Barr disputes that.

Attorney General William Barr's statement that disputes Inspector General Michael Horowitz's finding that the FBI properly opened a full investigation, called Crossfire Hurricane, based on the evidence it had in July 2016.

Barr said:

"The inspector generalís report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions, that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken. It is also clear that, from its inception the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory."

1. Of course he does. Didn't we expect him to spin it like he did the Mueller report?

3. And he is basing this on his stellar career and reputation.

This from the man who helped GHW Bush pardon all of the treasonous bastards who helped Reagan make illegal deals with Iran and right wing Nicaraguan death squads to subvert the 1980 election.

That should be repeated by EVERY news person who touches anything said by that asshat Barr.

4. Barr lies - he's similar to his master in the ease and frequency of his transparent lies.

He too should be impeached and is a traitor to our country and a valuable PUtin tool.

5. Even though we expected it, it's nevertheless shocking.

If Barr intends to do a media tour, calling a press conference, etc... I hope the FBI Director defends the report publicly.
