Attorney General William Barr dropped a bombshell during a Senate hearing Wednesday, saying he believed the Trump campaign was spied on during the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. “I think spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur,” Barr said during a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing, adding that he wasn’t alleging that rules were broken. Barr said those rules governed how and when law-enforcement agencies could place politicians and their campaigns under surveillance. “I’m not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at that,” he said. “I’m not talking about the FBI necessarily, but intelligence agencies more broadly.” He said the main question was whether the “spying” was done for a good reason.
