The recent inspector general report revealed that the Crossfire Hurricane team and Department of Justice and FBI leaders fell for many of the false Russia collusion narratives the press pushed.
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.
The IG’s report shows FBI agents intentionally excluded derogatory information to maintain the apparent credibility of the sources they used to obtain the power to secretly surveil U.S. citizens.
As bad as the IG’s findings were, the details in its report suggest worse is coming when U.S. Attorney John Durham concludes his investigation into the Russia collusion hoax.
The report established that the special counsel’s office was complicit in the FISA abuse, the probe was a witch hunt, and its report was a cover-up for systematic government malfeasance.
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.
Rep. Devin Nunes succeeded in exposing numerous problems with FISA applications, later confirmed by Inspector General Michael Horowitz. For this, he was slimed.
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.
“Had the public known what the FBI knew at that time, it’s hard to imagine public support for continuing the investigation, much less the appointment of a special counsel four months later,” says Sen. Ron Johnson.
Nunes outlines repeated assertions from Schiff that the inspector general’s report found to be completely untrue, including the idea that ‘FBI and DOJ officials did not omit material information from the FISA warrant.’
‘Far too many in the FBI and DOJ are willing to hide evidence, falsify documents and make up crimes to achieve their objectives.’
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.
Not only did the Obama administration’s FBI target the Trump campaign in the heat of the 2016 presidential election, but it used an intelligence briefing of Trump to gather ‘evidence’ on him.
The IG report shows how the FBI kept crucial information about Steele’s reliability out of its FISA application in order to spy on Carter Page.
The newly released inspector general report confirms that the FBI would not have been able to spy on former Trump aide Carter Page if it weren’t for Hillary Clinton-funded allegations.
