The President claimed there was “absolutely” spies on his campaign in 2016, a day after, Barr said there was spying activity involved.
THE PRESIDENT: Trump said the Oval Office, “I think what he said was absolutely true… There was absolutely spying into my campaign,” he continued.
“I’ll go a step further. In my opinion, it was illegal spying, unprecedented spying and something that should never be allowed to happen in our country again,” the President added.
“You’re just lucky I happened to be the president because a lot of other presidents would have reacted much differently than I reacted,” Trump said.
He ended with, “You’re very lucky I was the president during this scam.”
AG BARR: During Barr’s testimony he said, “I think spying on a political campaign is a big idea.”
THE PRESIDENT: He says this after Barr’s testimony and Assange’s arrest.
