Attorney General William Barr was back testifying on Capitol Hill Wednesday. On Tuesday, Barr spoke before a House committee where he was asked about his findings on Mueller Report.
Of course, Democrats were not pleased with Barr’s answers and essentially accused him of simply coming to a conclusion to benefit President Trump. When pressed for answers about his findings and when and how much of the Mueller report he was going to release, Barr said a redacted version of the report would be released “within a week.”
If that wasn’t enough to get the Democrats going, during his testimony on Wednesday Trump said he believed the Trump campaign was spied up on during the 2016 election.
AG Bill Barr says that he believes spying on President Trump's 2016 campaign happened.

As can be expected, Democrats are not pleased with Barr’s assertion of spying on the Trump campaign.
"He is the attorney general of the United States of America, not the attorney general of Donald Trump." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Attorney General William Barr is "going off the rails," while referencing Barr's recent testimony on Capitol Hill. https://t.co/NxiT3e2Zma pic.twitter.com/71U7FLnLZl
