‘Ignored’: Barr accuses Mueller of not investigating Russian disinformation in Steele dossier

(Worthy News) – Attorney General William Barr accused special counsel Robert Mueller of failing to investigate evidence that British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s salacious and unverified dossier may have been compromised by a Russian disinformation campaign.

In an interview Thursday with Catherine Herridge of CBS News, which followed the Justice Department’s move to drop its Mueller spinoff prosecution of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, Barr was asked to comment on how recently declassified footnotes from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s Russia inquiry “suggest that the Steele dossier was likely the product of Russian disinformation” and that “there were multiple warnings to the FBI at that time, yet they continued to use that.”

For an explanation, Barr pointed to Mueller.

“I think that’s one of the most troubling aspects of this whole thing, and, in fact, I said it in testimony on the Hill. I can’t remember if it was my confirmation, that I said I was very concerned about the possibility that that dossier and Steele’s activities were used as a vector for the Russians to inject disinformation into the political campaign,” Barr said. “I think that is something that Robert Mueller was responsible for looking at under his charter, which is the potential of Russian influence. But I think it was ignored and that there was mounting indications that this could very well have been happening, and no one really stopped to look at it.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
