As Attorney General Bill Barr continues his investigation of the investigators, Democrats have repeatedly accused him of betraying his position as the nation’s top law enforcement officer in order to protect the president.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
By launching an investigation into the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, Barr is looking to protect the civil liberties of all Americans.
Barr has confirmed that the FBI did, in fact, spy on private citizens working for the Trump campaign. Getting to the bottom of whether this was done legally is crucial.
In addition, the American people deserve to know how the Obama administration partnered with the Department of Justice to go after a presidential political opponent. This is an issue every American should be working to prevent in the future.
