Barr directs FBI to get his approval before probing 2020 presidential candidates

Attorney General William Barr has issued new restrictions on opening investigations into politically sensitive individuals or entities, including a requirement that he approve any inquiry into a presidential candidate or campaign. Barr’s orders come after Justice Department found that the FBI’s probe into Trump’s former campaign aide, Carter Paige, was ridden with errors and falsified info.

inb4 someone tries to twist this into 'orange man bad' ---this is an incredibly sensible rule, but because of who is saying it, it'll get spun as somehow nefarious.

So, according to the source (so not that Facebookgroup with all your friends in it) these are new rules. Im not saying 'orange man bad', Im not even saying if the rule is good or not, that would require a little more research than reading 1 article, so please don't get too triggered~
