"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal", said Barr. "I think spying on a political campaign-it's a big deal, it's a big deal".

Though he said the document will be redacted to withhold negative information about peripheral figures in the investigation, Barr said that would not apply to Trump, who is an officeholder and central to the probe.

'I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that.

He said on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Wednesday that in addition to repealing this particular ban, the bill would narrow presidential powers to implement similar measures in the future. "The question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated". He was discussing the allegations, common in right-wing media, that the Obama administration improperly spied on Trump's campaign, possibly as a part of the Russian Federation investigation that eventually was taken over by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Attorney General William Barr says he plans to review the origins of the FBI's investigation between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Halper, a former Cambridge professor, made contact with at least three Trump campaign advisers, Carter Page, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos.

It was Hillary Clinton's campaign, as well as the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which had hired Fusion GPS-through their law firm Perkins Coie-to produce the dossier.
