DOJ official Bruce Ohr called a meeting of several federal agencies to discuss ‘working with’ a Russian oligarch because of his belief, premised on the unverified Steele dossier, that Trump was corrupt.
Today is the deadline Judge Rosemary Collyer set for the government to inform the FISA court of how it will stop lying to obtain secret surveillance orders. The court needs to do much more.
Much has been missed, including one significant misrepresentation contained in all four of the Carter Page FISA applications—an inaccuracy even the IG’s team overlooked.
Perhaps this wasn’t actually the most statistically improbable perfect storm of innocent oversights and clerical errors, all of which worked against Carter Page.
The IG report concluded that several of Comey’s statements were inconsistent with statements from other federal officials, as well as evidence gathered as part of the FISA investigation.
The FISC this week ordered the FBI to advise the court of what steps FBI will take to ensure their abuses are not repeated. That should just be a start.
Following the inspector general’s FISA report that proved nearly every sentence wrong in Rep. Adam Schiff’s last high-profile report, Schiff’s work should be deemed worthless.
Rep. Adam Schiff joked about the bizarre “pee tape” rumor from the discredited Democratic-funded Steele Dossier on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Nearly two years later, the inspector general’s report vindicates the Nunes memo while showing that the Schiff memo was riddled with lies and false statements.
The FBI under James Comey doctored evidence to falsely paint Carter Page as a Russian spy, a new IG report from the Department of Justice found.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation was limited in scope and thus will leave unanswered many of the questions surrounding the FBI’s targeting of the Trump campaign.
What can we expect from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s probe into abuses at the Department of Justice and FBI? For starters, don’t get your hopes up.
Creeping government control is nothing new, but the DOJ’s recent disregard for the Second and Fourth Amendments shows old protections against abuses of power will wear thin without public vigilance.
U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) suggested that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should face jail time for his company’s mishandling of user data.
The IG report rebuked Comey for mishandling official FBI records, and for his many violations of regulations, DOJ and FBI policies, and Comey’s employment agreement.
Whatever harm releasing these memos might cause to the FBI’s crime-fighting ability is surely offset by the lack of accountability for one of the most controversial episodes in its history.
Disgraced Trump investigator Peter Strzok probably won’t get tossed out of court right away. But once litigation proceeds, Strzok’s claims will be on shaky grounds.
Since Congress just introduced the first-ever resolution to boycott Israel, the DOJ’s combating anti-Semitism event couldn’t have come at a better time.
The next Democratic administration could use the Robert Mueller report’s denial of ‘exoneration’ to prosecute its Republican predecessors.
