Hi, folks. You guys are terrific. We’ve been hunting for a “whole interview” video all afternoon. Thank you for pitching in to help! Here’s the whole thing.
And here is the interview with WSJ (YUGE hat tip to FLEP for finding it!)
You’re going to hear a LOT about these BILL BARR interviews with MSNBC and WSJ. I got a heads up on the MSNBC one, and it only finished about 5 minutes ago. Watched the portion of WSJ interview run by FOX. All I have NOW are my notes, posted below. We will post the full clip and transcript when it becomes available. MSNBC will not release the full video and they’re playing games on the interview – yeah, it was that bad —- for them. We’re piecing the interview together as best as we can. Please pardon typos on my pseudo transcript, I was going as quickly as I could.
The second piece can only be seen here: https://therightscoop.com/watch-ag-bill-barr-drops-some-cold-hard-truth-on-origins-of-russia-investigation-in-msnbc-interview/
Thank you, Dep! Here is a TEN MINUTE fuzzy version from Breitbart, still not the whole thing but much better. https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/12/10/ag-barr-fbi-ignored-exculpatory-evidence-hid-information-to-continue-trump-investigation/ NOTE: In the Breitbart piece, Barr is quoted as saying, “we’re going to put people in there and rile them up”, but that’s not what Barr said. Barr said, “… we’re going to put people in there and WIRE THEM UP…”
Rest assured, Barr just slapped the media, the FBI, the Dems, the Russians, everyone, and completely defended the President. It was epic.
Whole thing started…. how?
A suggestion of a suggestion from a 28yr old campaign worker, that Russians MAY have Hillary’s emails. Well, look what was going on in May of 2016, many reports that Russian hacked her server in 2014. Press accounts were all over the place…….. and they jumped right into a full scale investigation, very intrusive technics, because of a suggestion of a suggestion IN A BAR.
Inexplicable that they talked to the RUSSIANS and not to the campaign.
Excoriates Brennan who confronted the head of Russian secret service, and OBama talked to Putin, said cut it out.
BUT they never talked to the campaign. Why not?
Talking about the “non-bias” and how it’s really not investigated by the OIG.
You have to wait for the full investigation by Durham.
He can compel people to testify.
Horowitz just asked them if they were biased and if he did not find contradictory testimony, then he was done.
Premature to make any judgement now.
Question — they opened an investigation but no one was really harmed.
From Barr: We’re going to put people in there and wire them up and then we’ll get the truth.
Not ONE piece of incriminatory evidence that came in, in fact it was exculpatory.
FBI ignored it
withholds it from the court
all while it gets more warrants.
clear cut evidence that the Dossier was a complete sham from more evidence collected
After January the whole case collapsed.
Zero information to support it
What did they do?
They kept on investigating the President
Not only did they NOT tell the Court, they added OTHER stuff , made up stuff, to bolster their dossier proof.
Opens the possibility to infer BAD FAITH
To early to tell (wink), but Durham is working on it.
Question – all kinds of bias, political, institutional,
Barr – I don’t want to say. Horowitz focuses on the FBI, but there was a lot going on around the FBI
Question: Do you still maintain….. Was the campaign spied upon
From barr: Oh, clearly they were spied upon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FISA allow to go BACK, emails, months and even years, that’s why they went for a FISA for retroactive accumulating of material
Actually preceded July.
Some things done during the investigating, which Horwitz did not cover.
Durham is also exploring what Happened AFTER january, withholding info from court.
He’s the President of the USA, what was their motivation? (why did they continue)
Why did you go to three countries with Durham.
Answer from Barr: Press reporting on this has been silly. a US Atty does not just show up on the doorstep of a government, have to introduce, ambassadors involved, establish ground rules, perfectly appropriate.
Question: was it appropriate for Durham to issue a statement yesterday
Barr: Absolutely, didn’t want the public to think the predication of the FBI investigation was cleared. Durham needed to make it clear. (slams media again)
Are you confident Wray can fix the FBI? In light of Trump’s tweet.
practically speaking, i think Wray has worked hard to correct the problems of the past, new team, old tean is not there.
Cannot ignore the abuses of the past.
Have to focus on getting it right
So you have confidence in Wray?
People will think and say you’re just defending Trump
I think our nation was turned on it’s head for three years, in large part by an irresponsible press
Protect against the abuse of the FBI
That’s my responsibility
Were you ever asked to talk to anyone in Ukraine about a Server?
I haven’t gotten into the Ukraine yet
I don’t know
I haven’t even looked into it frankly
DOJ Criminal Division career employees said Whistle Blower complaint about campaign finance was looked t and determined to not hold merit
Was it a terrorist act in Pensacola?
Not discussing details of investigation…..
We are satisfied with cooperation we are getting
Comment on police address – if people don’t support their police, they might find themselves without the protection needed. We’re in a full employment economy.. Every police dept is understaffed. high suicide rate, unless we change we’re not going to have enough police.
But you’re not saying people shouldn’t criticize the police when they do something wrong?
Talking about patience and the need for answers NOW……Daughn’s notes, not perfect transcription but as close as possible
I know, I know, but we cannot cut corners on collection of evidence.
You know that.
I see us reaching a
Reaching a watershed, in lte spring or early summer……..
Barr is NOW doing another interview with the WSJ. We will post both interview when available.
From the WSJ interview, tone was much more friendly and Barr was not as cutting and sarcastic. They went over the same topics and similar answers.
One exception: In the WSJ interview, Barr said Brennan (himself) called the head of the FSB in Russia on August 4th, and again later in August (2016). Obama called (himself) in September of 2016 and told Putin, “we know what you’re doing, stop it”
But they never talked to the campaign.Daughn’s notes
