Attorney General William Barr fired back at Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) over his use of the word spying – forcefully denying the word has any negative connotations. 

Per The Daily Caller:
 

Barr alleged during his testimony to the House Appropriations Committee in April that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign as the FBI investigated alleged ties to Russia.

In addition to conducting surveillance on former Trump campaign official Carter Page, the FBI used informant Stefan Halper to make contact with three Trump campaign advisers. 

Whitehouse grilled Barr about using the term “spying,” suggesting the term didn’t accurately reflect the DOJ’s authorized surveillance.

“I’m not going to abjure the use of the word ‘spying,’” Barr said. “My first job was in CIA. I don’t think the word ‘spying’ has any pejorative connotation at all.”

Barr continued, “I think spying is a good English word that, in fact, doesn’t have synonyms because it is the broadest word incorporating really all forms of covert intelligence collection, so I’m not going to back off the word ‘spying.’”
