Attorney General William Barr said the FBI intentionally targeted the Trump campaign without much evidence of wrongdoing and continued probing it even after evidence failed to materialize.
Barr spoke during an interview with Fox News’ Brett Baier:
I think before the election, I think we were concerned about the motive force behind the very aggressive investigation that was launched into the Trump campaign without — you know, with a very thin, slender reed as a basis for it.
It seemed that the bureau was sort of spring-loaded at the end of July to drive in there and investigate a campaign.
There really wasn’t much there to do that on, and that became more and more evident as they went by, but they seemed to have ignored all the exculpatory evidence that was building up and continued pell-mell to push it forward.
Sounds like a . . . witch hunt.
