Nancy Pelosi has claimed William Barr has gone “ off the rails ”, after the attorney general alleged on Capitol Hill that US intelligence spied on members of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. In a further broadside amid efforts by Democrats to press Mr Barr to release a full copy of Robert Mueller.

On Wednesday, Democrats also strongly criticized the attorney general over a comment he had made during testimony on the Hill, in which he said, "I think spying did occur," in reference to the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.

Barr has repeatedly defended his handling of the Mueller report by telling lawmakers he will be as transparent as he possibly can with respect to releasing information, saying he will make public everything that can be made public under law.

Barr also told lawmakers on Wednesday that he will be looking into the "genesis" of the FBI counterintelligence investigation that began in 2016 of potential ties between members of Trump's presidential campaign and the Russian government.

"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal," Barr said, echoing some of the more inflammatory claims lobbed by the President for months but declining to elaborate on his concerns.

Pelosi said during her news conference, however, that she isn't confident that Barr will conduct his review appropriately.

Asked specifically if she had confidence that Barr would conduct his investigation in an appropriate way, Pelosi simply answered: "No."

Pelosi said she had confidence in the intelligence she's been given about the origins of the Russia probe but could not confirm or deny what she's been told as a member of the gang of eight, a shorthanded reference to the top leaders and intelligence chairs from both parties and congressional chambers.

"I have confidence, yes, in the intelligence and from what I have seen," she said.

Separately, in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Pelosi said she doesn't trust Barr.

"I don't trust Barr, I trust Mueller," she told the AP.
