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.
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.
The media has ignored several significant revelations detailed in the FBI report Inspector General Michael Horowitz released last week.
The letter also revealed new communications between Peter Strok and Lisa Page where Strok predicted a ‘crescendo of leaks.’
