Attorney General William Barr sat down with NBC News a day after the release of IG Michael Horowitz's report on the FISA warrants on Carter Page and the origins of the Russia probe.
Barr openly dismissed the findings in the report, mainly because it did not go deep enough, but also ripped the FBI and the press.
The report of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was as expected.
As with his prior report on FBI Director James Comey's leaking of information, Horowitz provided a headline version allowing Comey and others to declare exoneration because no criminal referral, while the details were devastating.
U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Russia-Trump collusion probe, disagreed with a few aspects of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report released today.
“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” said Durham.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on the origins of the Russia investigation, which is likely to please both sides of the political spectrum.
The IG found justification to investigate the Russia investigation and did not find any "intentional misconduct or political bias." However, the investigators discovered many "significant" errors concerning the FISA warrant on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will release his report next month on the ways the FBI received warrants using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) on Carter Page [featured image], who served as an aide for then-candidate Donald Trump.
The report will include information about an FBI lawyer under criminal investigation for allegedly changing a document related to the documents used to obtain the warrant.
Who is going to cop a plea first?
That might be the question lawyers are asking as the probe by John Durham, a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, into the origins of the spying-not-spying on the Trump campaign moves forward.
Rep. Al Green (D-TX) has made no secret over the last two and a half years of his desire to impeach President Donald Trump. In fact, Green made impeachment the centerpiece of his seventh Congressional term. It remains the centerpiece for this term.
He first spoke of it on the House floor on May 17, 2017 and has several times since in various floor speeches, statements, interviews, and on social media.
Something has changed. Attorney General William Barr has become Public Enemy No. 1 for the Democrats and supportive mainstream media.
It started with Barr's four-page summary of the Mueller Report's conclusions, which punctured the almost three year narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. The conclusion of no conspiracy or coordination, accurately summarized in the Barr letter, was verified when the full Mueller Report was released three weeks later.
Outgoing Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) caused quite a stir when he said on TV that he found no evidence that the FBI spied on President Donald Trump's campaign after he received a briefing from the DOJ and FBI.
Now reports have emerged that Gowdy and others at the meeting did not see any documents or subpoenas they requested.
