DOJ Inspector General Has Completed FISA Abuse Probe

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


The Justice Department’s inspector general told Congress on Friday that he completed his investigation into possible FBI abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act during the Trump-Russia probe, and has sent a draft version of his report to the Justice Department and FBI for review.

“We have now begun the process of finalizing our report by providing a draft of our factual findings to the Department and the FBI for classification determination and marking,” Michael Horowitz, the inspector general, said in a letter to several congressional committees.

Horowitz, an Obama appointee, opened an investigation March 28, 2018, into the FBI’s applications for   FISA warrants against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page .

He informed the committees on June 25 that the investigation was “nearing completion,” and that his office had interviewed more than 100 witnesses and reviewed more than 1 million documents in the probe.

The FBI relied heavily on the infamous and unverified Steele dossier in applications for the warrants.

The special counsel’s report severely undercut   dossier author Christopher Steele’s claim that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

The special counsel said there was no evidence of a conspiracy involving the Trump team. There was also no evidence that Page or any other Trump associates acted as agents of Russia.

Republicans have accused the FBI of mishandling the dossier, and failing to disclose to FISA Court judges that the DNC and Clinton campaign had hired Steele to investigate Trump. Investigators with the OIG reportedly   interviewed Steele in London , where he is based, in early June.

Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, immediately called on Chairman Jerry Nadler to call Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray to testify before the panel once the report is released.

“We must act swiftly to address concerns outlined in the Inspector General’s report,” Collins wrote to Nadler.

“Accordingly, I write to request you schedule a hearing as soon as possible following Congress’s receipt of the report. Further, I request that you invite Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray to discuss the findings of the investigation at that hearing.”

OHHH NNNOOOOO - " The special counsel’s report severely undercut   dossier author Christopher Steele’s claim that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

The special counsel said there was no evidence of a conspiracy involving the Trump team . There was also no evidence that Page or any other Trump associates acted as agents of Russia."

The Mueller report covered this, it said that the trump campaign didn't seek out help from Russia, but when Russia OFFERED help, the trump campaign ACCEPTED that help. 

Personally, I am tired of this crap. There were no winners in any of this. Paraphrasing: "If the Trump and the trump campaign had committed no crimes, we would have said exactly that."

Robert Mueller. 

The only thing comical about the Mueller report? The right accepts the good parts, throws the bad parts in the fake news pile. Either you believe all of it or none of it, it's that simple.

More BS. 

If Hier Mueller had any integrity he wouldn't have hired a team full of Hillary and Obama sycophants. The only thing comical about the Mueller report is the left steadfastly believing it proved anything beyond sheer conjecture. It was tedious as hell watching Mueller have to back track and rephrase himself constantly during questioning. Luckily his handlers were there to remind him what was in his precious report- as he sure as hell didn't know.

Either you believe all of it or none of it, it's that simple. 

The left needs to follow their own damn advise.

There is absolutely no evidence of that. As usual, you're making stuff up.

I certainly hope so, but since he was appointed by Obumfuk, I'm not expecting much.

It’s time to take all the Clinton campaign and Obama administration officials who colluded with Russia and lock them up!

I just want to update this article:

Durham investigation into origins of 2016 Trump campaign surveillance expands its scope

As Catherine Herridge points out - John Durham isn't known for asking for more resources if there is nothing there!

This is going to get very, very interesting.  The timing is perfect - the elections are coming and the Dems/Libs are scrambling.

Luv it when justice gets its say.

This is why the Dems are so fevered in their push for impeachment.  It will allow them to cast doubt through their media about the legitimacy of the IG the AG and the US Attorney investigations or even remove them from office before they can complete their findings.

The DOJ announced that part 2 of the Michael Horowitz report will be presented by the end of this month.

Did you hear James Clapper yesterday on CNN yesterday?

CLAPPER: The message I'm getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh, by the way, blown off what the then commander in chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could that we had available to us --

Obama told us???
