AG Barr and Trump look for foreign help in investigating FBI, CIA and Mueller

As a result of a lawsuit, the DOJ has released 500 pages of Mueller probe interviews.
POTUS has called on the Australian prime minister, while the attorney general has been on similar missions to the UK and Italy. The information being requested has left allies stunned. One UK official commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services”.

Two weeks ago the Italian prime minister revealed that Barr had visited his country twice in the previous two months, and he had pressed for information about the activities of US intelligence services both times.
It is being reported Trump's approval rating is 38% in the new @ABC News/WaPo poll. Among Republicans, he's at a career low of 74%—down steeply.
