Trump Just Tried To Scam His Supporters Into Giving Him Money By Lying About Mueller Report
The Trump campaign sent out a special message to Donald Trump’s supporters on Friday asking them for money and claiming that Attorney General William Barr had confirmed the existence of “unlawful” spying on President Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election. But that is just not true.
In the email sent Friday afternoon, the Trump campaign claimed falsely that “Attorney General William Barr said what the president has thought all along: He believes “unlawful spying did occur” against Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign.”
Although Barr did claim that “spying did occur,” at no point did he conclude that the actions were unlawful.
“I think spying did occur,” Barr said this week during a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing. “But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.”
“I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I’m saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it. That’s all,” he added.
But of course, Trump will just tell his supporters a lie and they’ll eat it up and believe it even if the facts just aren’t there.
The Trump campaign has just texted supporters looking to fundraise off of AG Barr’s congressional testimony, and falsely claims that Barr said he “believes the Obama Admin illegally spied on Pres. Trump.” pic.twitter.com/hxGvRyWmwY
