How much do you think members of the Obama admin are sweatin’ it knowing Barr is actively working on investigating the origin of the Russia probe? Add a dash of John Durham and you know they’re more than a little nervous.
Unless of course, they have NOTHING ‘very unusual’ to hide.
Barr: 'Very unusual' for FBI to rely on Steele dossier, given its 'number of clear mistakes.' https://t.co/bHEuCExonV

From The Daily Caller:
Attorney General William Barr said in an interview that aired Friday that he is investigating what role the Steele dossier played in the Russia probe and that the salacious document had “a number of clear mistakes.”
“It’s a very unusual situation to have opposition research like that, especially one that on its face had a number of clear mistakes and a somewhat jejune analysis,” Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer.
“And to use that to conduct counterintelligence against an American political campaign is a strange — would be strange development.”
The FBI relied heavily on the Steele dossier, which was funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign, to obtain surveillance warrants against Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser. But Republicans have accused the FBI of misleading the surveillance court by relying on the dossier given that its allegations were unverified.’
Wait, so the Steele dossier was full of mistakes? GET OUTTA HERE.
That would be ‘strange’.
Interesting way of putting that, Barr.
Please Collusion Truthers: take the bait and ask Barr to name those “clear mistakes” 🍿 https://t.co/IGZguCE2jq

Clear mistakes is a polite way of saying bald faced lies.
