1 Barr: FBI Spied On Trump Campaign

It’s not as though Attorney General William Barr has been getting a warm reception on Capitol Hill in his last two days of testimony, but now it’s even less so. This as he has testified that he believes the FBI spied on the Trump presidential campaign in 2016. In a Senate hearing, Barr stressed that he's seen no evidence of illegal activity by the FBI, but has some concerns that he wants to explore. Along the way, Barr cited a failure among a group of leaders at the top of the FBI and said he has an obligation to make sure government power is not abused. Barr was also asked about his decision not to pursue an obstruction of justice investigation of President Trump. Barr said he’ll explain his decision once the final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller is released. As you might imagine, Democrats are not happy about Barr's comments about the FBI. Leading the charge? California Democrat Adam Schiff, who says in a statement saying the "top law enforcement officer of the country should not casually suggest that those under his purview engaged in ‘spying’ on a political campaign." But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? When addressing reporters after Barr’s testimony concluded, she compared his remarks to “going off the rails.

2 Monster Storm Threatens 200-Million In Central, Eastern U.S.

Sure, it's "spring" on the calendar, but more than 200-million Americans are bracing for what could be Bomb Cyclone 2.0. Blizzard warnings are up as the storm sets its sights on the central and eastern U.S. with heavy snow, drenching rain, and flooding. To remind you, a Bomb Cyclone happens when air pressure drops quickly and a storm strengthens explosively. But for the Midwest? This would be the second such storm in the same region in less than a month. The slow-moving storm could dump as much as two-feet of snow on parts of the Plains and Upper Midwest before it’s done – and wind gusts up to 70-miles per hour are expected to accompany the precipitation. Currently, blizzard warnings are out for parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. After the storm passes, melting snow will ramp up the flood threat in the north-central U.S. over the next few weeks. West Texas and New Mexico won't see snow, but winds gusting to 90-miles an hour will create a high risk of wildfires.

The investigation continues.
