Attorney General Bill Barr was spotted walking into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office on Tuesday afternoon but when reporters asked why he was there, the Justice Department refused to say why.
Barr has been teasing a conspiracy that former President Barack Obama, and by extension, former Vice President Joe Biden, were part of a spying operation of the Trump campaign. After special counsel Robert Mueller finalized his report, Barr wrote a false summary of the findings and then announced that he would hire U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the investigators.
Barr called the Russia investigation "one of the greatest travesties in American history," neglecting to acknowledge the wrongdoing on behalf of the president that was cited in the report.
