Attorney General Bill Barr Says FBI May Have Operated in "Bad Faith"

Attorney General Bill Barr says he still believes the FBI may have operated in "bad faith" when it investigated the Trump campaign. In an NBC News exclusive interview, Barr essentially dismissed the findings of the DOJ watchdog report that found no evidence of political bias in the origins of the FBI's Russia probe. Barr argued that Inspector General Michael Horowitz didn't look very hard for evidence, adding that he accepted the FBI's explanations at face value.

He added there "were gross abuses" and "inexplicable behavior" conducted by the FBI, claiming the agency launched the probe based on "very flimsy" evidence. Barr said his hand-picked U.S. prosecutor John Durham will have the last word on the matter and stood by his statement that believes the Trump campaign was spied on.
