Attorney General William Barr told NBC News that the FBI may have operated out of “bad faith” when it investigated whether the Trump campaign ties to Russia in 2016, but failed to provide any evidence of his claim:
I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press. I think there were gross abuses …and inexplicable behavior that is intolerable in the FBI.
Barr also blamed the non-specific “media,” and dismissed the findings of his own Justice Department’s inspector general, but said his hand-picked prosecutor, John Durham, would be investigating the investigators.
