Former Attorney General Bill Barr said special counsel John Durham will "get to the bottom" of how the Trump–Russia investigation unfolded.
"I think whether or not there are more indictments, I think Durham is going to get to the bottom of it as well as anyone can," Barr told Fox News as he promoted his book, claiming Durham will release a lengthy "report that lays out the facts."
Durham, a former U.S. attorney in Connecticut, was tapped by Barr to head the investigation into the FBI's original investigation into former President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, which led to Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel.
Mueller's investigation revealed no evidence of conspiracy or collusion on behalf of Trump's campaign and Russian officials. However, some Democrat elected officials and some corporate news outlets have continued to claim that Russia interfered to help Trump win the presidency in 2016.
Barr said that he hopes that certain individuals, "if they did commit crimes, and we can prove it, that they’re going to be held accountable."
"I’ve never seen an adequate basis for launching a counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign," Barr added to Fox.
The FBI, Barr continued to say, "used FISA surveillance, which is spying" and employed "agents and informants and confidential sources to meet and surreptitiously tape conversations they were having with people involved in the campaign."
Sussmann, who previously worked for the Democratic Party-aligned Perkins Coie, was charged with making false statements to the FBI because when he spoke with Baker, he allegedly did not say he was representing the Clinton campaign, according to federal prosecutors.
“It shows how totally corrupt and shameless the media is,” Trump said at the time. “Can you imagine if the roles were reversed and the Republicans, in particular President Donald Trump, got caught illegally spying into the Office of the President?”
