Kimberley Strassel: Mueller’s investigation is done. Now dig into the real scandal — missteps of Comey, FBI
Attorney General William Barr has reported to Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has cleared President Trump and his campaign team of claims of conspiring with Russia during the 2016 election.
This is more than an exoneration. It’s a searing indictment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as a reminder of the need to know the story behind the bureau’s corrosive investigation.
Mr. Mueller’s report likely doesn’t put it that way, but it’s the logical conclusion of his no-collusion finding. The FBI unleashed its powers on a candidate for the office of the U.S. presidency, an astonishing first.
It did so on the incredible grounds that the campaign had conspired to aid a foreign government. And it used the most aggressive tools in its arsenal—surveillance of U.S. citizens, secret subpoenas of phone records and documents, even human informants.
Americans now deserve a full accounting of the missteps of former FBI Director James Comey and his team—in part so that this never happens again.
The wreckage is everywhere. The nation has been engulfed in conspiracy theories for years. A presidency was hemmed in by the threat of a special counsel.
Citizens have gone to jail not for conspiracy, but for after-the-fact interactions with Mr. Mueller’s team. Dozens more have spent enormous amounts of money and time defending their reputations.

Kimberley Strassel: Barr brings accountability, he was ‘right to call this what it is’
Strassel believes Attorney General William Barr brings “accountability” after he testified Wednesday that he thinks “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign in 2016.
In an Op-Ed published Thursday, Strassel, a member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board, wrote that many former Obama administration and Hillary Clinton campaign officials, as well as members of the media, are “no doubt” stunned and scared “that the Justice Department finally has a leader willing to address the FBI’s behavior in 2016.”
“He (Barr) was right to call this what it is. It is spying,” Strassel, who is a Fox News contributor, told “America’s Newsroom” Friday.
She added: “One of the reasons it’s appropriate here is because you surveil bad guys, as he said, like organized crime bosses. But this was a party of one persuasion running an administration that was looking at a campaign of the other party. And that definitely merits the word ‘spying’ so that’s what was happening here.
He says he’s going to look into that. He’s going to see if there was unauthorized surveillance. Meaning, there’s still some things in the FBI’s timeline that do not add up.”
MEDIA TAKE ISSUE WITH AG BARR FOR SAYING ‘SPYING DID OCCUR’ ON TRUMP CAMPAIGN
Strassel also brought up that Barr will be looking into the role of other intelligence agencies including The Central Intelligence Agency.
“There’s a lot of questions that he seems to, from his testimony, understand all the dots that need to be looked at and connected here,” said Strassel.
Prominent Democrats lined up to hammer Barr for testifying that federal authorities had spied on the Trump campaign in 2016, including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., who said Barr’s loyalties were compromised.
“He is acting as an employee of the president,” Hoyer said.
DEMS RAGE AGAINST BARR FOR BACKING CLAIMS OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN ‘SPYING’ BY FBI
“We have to focus on more than just the end of the Mueller report and more than how all this started. We have to focus on the two years in which opponents of Donald Trump managed to forestall accountability for this,” said Strassel. “Now think about this, you had Jim Comey, who hid his investigation from everybody.
Strassel did not tell the public about it obviously. Kimberley also did not tell the courts about it. He did not tell Congress about it, which is a routine thing to do. He did not give a defensive briefing to the Trump campaign. And why? Because everyone was banking that Hillary Clinton would win and that no one would ever know what the FBI did here.”
