https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia/justice-...The U.S. Justice Department’s internal watchdog said it found numerous errors but no evidence of political bias by the FBI when it opened an investigation into contacts between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia in 2016.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/02/us/politics/barr-inspecto...Attorney General William P. Barr has told Justice Department officials that he is skeptical of a conclusion by the department’s inspector general that the F.B.I. had sufficient information to open the investigation into whether any Trump associates conspired with Russia during the 2016 presidential race, according to two people familiar with the conversations.John H. Durham — the federal prosecutor who is conducting a separate criminal inquiry into the roots of the Russia investigation Mr. Durham has already unearthed some evidence that supports Mr. Barr’s uncertainty of the inspector general’s findings, according to a lawyer involved in the Durham inquiry.https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2019-12-09/justic...Federal prosecutor John Durham, who is running a separate criminal investigation on the origins of the Russia probe, said he did not agree with some of the report's conclusions.Horowitz found that the FBI had a legal "authorized purpose" to ask for court approval to begin surveillance of Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser.But he also found a total of 17 "basic and fundamental" errors and omissions in its applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) that made the case appear stronger than it was.For example, the FBI continued to rely on information assembled by a former British intelligence officer named Christopher Steele in its warrant applications even after one of Steele's sources told the agency that his statements had been mischaracterized or exaggerated.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/09/us/politics/barr-durham-i...Mr. Durham also noted that he had access to more information than Mr. Horowitz did, an apparent reference to Mr. Durham’s trips to meet with foreign intelligence officials overseas and to his examination of any role the C.I.A. played in how the F.B.I. confronted Russia’s election interference in 2016. Remember Durham’s investigation has become a criminal inquiry and a grand jury called. Some people are going to be charged.
LOLIt is always the next investigation that will turn up something and result in Comey, McCabe, Page, Clinton, and whomever else you were told to hate in jail.And you guys keep falling for it. Over and over again.Let's make a bet, no one major will go to jail resulting from Durham's investigation. He will find some low level nobody forgot to cross some T's and dot some I's. You guys will work yourself up into a frenzy because your political masters will cherry pick some out of context quotes, yet no one major will be charged with anything.There are some people that can be fooled all of the time.
All errors by the underlings not the superiors. Yep, normal IG stuff.
It is always the next investigation that will turn up something and result in Comey, McCabe, Page, Clinton, and whomever else you were told to hate in jail.We need a investigation of the investigation investigation! It's the Derp State!
What the IG report did turn up:https://www.zerohedge.com/political/fisa-report-reveals-clin...Contained within Monday's FISA report by the DOJ Inspector General is the revelation that Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Clinton campaign to produce the Steele dossier, "was paying Steele to discuss his reporting with the media." (P. 369 and elsewhere)And when did Steele talk with the media (which got him fired as an FBI source)? September of 2016, roughly six weeks before the election.One of those talked to was Michael Isikoff who subsequently wrote that "Carter Page "has opened up private communications with senior Russian officials - including talks about the possible lifting of economic sanctions if the Republican nominee becomes president."This allegaton was found by special counsel Robert Mueller report to be false. Moreover, the FBI knew about it in December, 2016, when DOJ #4 Bruce Ohr told the agency as much."
https://outline.com/AFWJ2VOne of the FBI’s big selling points for the Democratic Party-financed dossier is that its creator, Christopher Steele, had proven his veracity in previously providing information on a FIFA soccer scandal.That is what the FBI told a judge to obtain a year’s worth of wiretaps on Trump associate Carter Page.It turned out it wasn’t true, according to the Justice Department’s inspector general report.Hardly any of Mr. Steele’s soccer information was corroborated. And none was used in court, contrary to what was attested to by FBI in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) application.Oh my! Russiagate was based on false predicate.
