Brennan Says AG Barr Is Fishing to Find a ‘Deep State Effort’ Against Trump
The former CIA director spoke to MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace. He said Attorney General Bill Barr’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation was “playing to Mr. Trump. “
I think they are trying to demonstrate that there were problems with what the Obama administration did as far as pursuing the investigation. But as you point out, it went through a rigorous due process within the Department of Justice and FBI. It was approved by the FISA court. It went through all of those steps. If they look back in 2020, are they going to find something that should have been said differently? Whatever, they might. That’s what they are trying to do is uncover something they will misrepresent as being part of this deep state effort to try to undermine Donald Trump’s election.
