Trump praised Bill Barr and said he has given him all of the documents he needs to investigate the origins of Spygate.
The president revealed that he also gave Barr the authority to release the declassified Spygate documents to whoever else needs them, including Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.
President Trump in late May announced that at the recommendation of Attorney General Bill Barr, he has directed the Intel Community to quickly and fully cooperate with Barr’s investigation into surveillance activities.
President Trump ordered declassification of the intelligence related to the spying on his presidential campaign in 2016.
Sara Carter then added that “Bucket 5” includes transcripts and tapes of Papadopoulos and Carter Page saying there was no way the Trump campaign was working with Russia.
Barr and Durham are currently focusing on transcripts of recordings made by a government source who met with Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos.
Durham is also taking a closer look at the start date of the FBI probe. The FBI opened “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31, 2016, however, it is now clear the FBI began spying on Trump and his campaign much earlier.
