WASHINGTON (CNN) - Attorney General William Barr is leveling blistering criticism at how the Russia investigation was conducted.
He says it was based on a “bogus narrative” that the Trump campaign might have conspired with Russia during the 2016 election.
Barr spoke to NBC News after the release of a Justice Department inspector general report that found problems with the FBI’s investigation, but also concluded there was a proper basis for opening the probe.
Barr says he disagrees with the inspector general, particularly the finding that the FBI had enough information to use surveillance on a former Trump campaign aide.
