Sleazy Republican fixer Bill Barr has another report damaging to the interests of his only client to try to spin away:
Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the prelude to a major fissure within federal law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign.
Barr’s claim is ridiculous, but that’s not the point. Creating a BOTH SIDES narrative is enough to serve his purposes and giving more ammunitation to RUSSIA HOAX conspiracy theories is his only goal. It doesn’t have to make any sense.
