At a contentious hearing on Capitol Hill, Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers that he had assembled a team of investigators to examine the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence operation against the 2016 Donald Trump campaign for president. Barr also said he would investigate the application process used by the FBI to convince a FISA judge to grant a surveillance warrant against Trump campaign employee Carter Page.
