Comey Confusion Continues: Has “No Idea” What Barr Meant on Spying Claims

Fight tech tyranny. Join Dan on Parler @dbongino.

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey seems perpetually confused with Attorney General William Barr these days.

First, he was confused by the attorney general’s summary report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.

Now, he just cannot wrap his head around why Barr would ever say that spying occurred on the Trump campaign.

“I have no idea what he’s talking about so it’s hard for me to comment,” Comey said at a Hewlett Foundation conference, according to the Hill.

“I think his career has earned him a presumption that he will be one of the rare Trump cabinet members who will stand up for truth,” the former FBI Director reportedly said.

Yesterday, Barr testified before a Senate appropriations committee where he said he believed “spying” on the Trump campaign did occur.

“I think spying did occur,” he said. The question is whether it was adequately predicated. … I think it’s my obligation. Congress is usually very concerned with intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane.”
