Barr began a storm in Washington, declaring that on Wednesday the Capitol Hill plans to reconsider the US intelligence investigation conducted during the Trump campaign in 2016, when Russia interfered in the presidential election.
about a political campaign is a big deal, "Barr said at the hearings in the Congress, knowingly or not, in an assertion that Trump's campaign was unfairly targeted at the FBI. "I believe that espionage has taken place."
The comment, for which the highest representative of the law enforcement agencies did not provide evidence, immediately gave Trump a new benefit for Barr's choice in order to effectively control the probes in the behavior of his campaign.
Trump argues that Robert Muller's investigation was a "deception" and an illegal attempt to overthrow his presidency "deep state conspiracy" ̵
Former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, who had a long time serving the Republican and Democratic presidents, told Anderson Cooper CNN that the use of Barr the word "espionage" was "awesome and terrible."
"I have to believe that he chose this term deliberately," said Clapper, who was part of the intelligence leadership at the end of the Obama administration, when the US authorities are concerned about the work of some of Trump's campaign assistants.
The results of Barr's activity for two days repeatedly revive the debate about his motivation and whether he tries to protect the rule of law or the President.
A comprehensive judicial decision must wait for his release of Muller's report, which is expected next week. But he has raised the stakes significantly.
"I was among those who wanted to give him the benefit of doubt when he entered," said David Gergen, a former advisor to presidents from both sides of the passage, now CNN's senior political analyst.
"I just felt that he just wanted to protect his reputation for integrity and wanted to show that he was independent … and now he acted repeatedly so that it all caused
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the case that Barr can not be trusted to adhere to traditions the political independence that I had on azi Attorney General.
"Let me say how very, very disturbing and disappointing that chi" Guardians of our country goes off the rails yesterday and today ", – said Pelosi.
"He is the Attorney General of the United States of America and not Prosecutor General Donald Trump," she added. 19659002] Adam Schiff, head of the Democratic House of Intelligence, warned that Barr should not "inadvertently" say that those who under his charge spied over a political campaign and that the comment "caused another devastating blow to our democratic institutions"  also raise suspicions among Democrats and some legal analysts that Barr – who was on record for his appointment – was skeptical about what Trump could do to obstruct justice – already politicizing the Ministry of Justice and defending the president.
These anxieties became aggravated by his refusal to submit the full version of Muller's report and supporting evidence gathered by a special adviser to the Congress.
His commentary will also aggravate the concern that the Ministry of Justice may be prepared to comply with the President's demands for retaliation against his enemies, including the ex-director of the FBI, James Coumi, who supervised the investigation of Russia when he was released.
Later, Barr tried to characterize his remarks, saying that he was not trying to say "wrong supervision"
He could not suppress reasoning about his motives in Washington.
Did he deliberately seek to signal that he had a president's back? did he intend to create a political space for himself with a boss who, without a doubt, often comes to the ears of pursuing his political opponents? Or he simply fell victim to his clumsy choice of words and was not accustomed to a vicious political climate that became toxic, Since he served on the same job of President George H.V.
Trump uses the "spy" storm
But in the hyperbolic atmosphere that arose around Trump's Muller probe, all the nuances have already been lost. "My the heart missed a blow, "said Harry Leitman, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, at CNN.
" It's a busy term – Bill Barr knows that this is a loaded term and most likely to play a triumphant point of conversation
Former federal Prosecutor Jennifer Rogers said that Barr used the word spy in "in a way that he sounded worse than he intended.
"I think that he really means observation," she said. Kate Baldwin
Constantly sensitive to political discoveries, the President did not have much time to go in front of the cameras to take advantage of the moment.
a whole false investigation began, – Trump told journalists. What they did was a betrayal. What they did was terrible. "
The Inspector General of the Department of Justice is considering allegations that the FBI abused its powers in conducting surveys of former foreign policy of Trump Carter's Page.
The Bureau unveiled a law on external intelligence supervision last year that it received on a page in October 2016 – after he left the Trump campaign.
She says that the FBI "believes that the page was the subject of a targeted set of Russian government."
"The FBI believes that Page is cooperating and concluding a conspiracy with the Russian government," the statement said.
Trump's allies also tried to argue that the FBI had unfairly initiated an investigation into Trump's campaign after being seized on a dossier drawn up by a former British intelligence officer Christopher Stil, who claimed that the then republican candidate was compromised by Russia. Some, though not all, requirements for a dossier have been verified. 
Barra's comments will stimulate a fresh attack by allies Trump, who spent months trying to discredit Muller's report – and re-launch the operation, hoping that the Attorney General will soon release the edited version.
The opening took place after Trump and the White House, using Barr's letter to Congress, summarized the report by declaring falsely that Muller had dismissed the president and that the special lawyer had not found a conspiracy or impediment to justice.
The offensive of many media outlets drowned Muller's testimony that the president was the beneficiary of a Russian intelligence operation to interfere in the US elections and hurts his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Although Barr said in a letter to Congress that Müller's report did not establish that there was cooperation between the campaign between Trump and Russia, numerous members of the president's team had contacts with the Russians and later deceived them.
Barr also told lawmakers in the letter that while Muller had not come to the conclusion that Trump interfered with justice, and Deputy Prosecutor General Rod Roenstein came to the conclusion that there was not enough evidence to establish that the President had done so.
CNN Justice Correspondent Laura Jarrett cited a source familiar with the Attorney General's opinion, saying that Barr referred to the word "espionage" in the classical sense of the intellectual collection and was not intended to throw a red carpet to conspiracy theorists
has repeatedly emphasized that Barr focuses on whether there is a proper "prediction" for any observation – as he said at the hearing.
If Barr aspired to establish himself in good relations with the President, it is not clear how long he
Given the careful nature of his speech in the letter to Muller's report, it remains highly probable that, although it may not show criminal offenses, evidence of a special the lawyer can still harm the President.
Barr testified on Wednesday that Muller did not ask him or Congress to come to a conclusion about whether Trump interfered with justice, but came to the conclusion that there was no case of prosecution. It is far from clear that leading democratic leaders – albeit wary of impeachment – will draw the same conclusions from Muller's report as Barr.
