Democrats are running around claiming that Pres. Trump and Republicans are lying about then-candidate Trump being spied on and that their side has been vindicated and Inspector General Michael Horowitz threw a wrench in that narrative, with the quickness on Tuesday afternoon.
As a matter of fact, former FBI Director James Comey has been spiking the football after the IG report was released but Horowitz said during the briefing that his report doesn’t vindicate anyone.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday he and his team “identified significant concerns” about how the FBI conducted its investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“The activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody,” Horowitz said when asked about comments made by former FBI chief James Comey, who took a victory lap after the DOJ watchdog released a report this week on the agency’s probe of Trump’s campaign.
But Horowitz also noted that “opening the investigation was in compliance with [DOJ] and FBI policies, and we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced” the decision to initiate the Trump-Russia probe.
The DOJ watchdog’s remarks came in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of Trump’s closest allies, set the tone of the hearing with a more than 40-minute speech blasting the FBI. [CNBC]
The details presented in the IG’s opening statement are nothing like what the Dems and the Lame Stream Media reported to the American public. It is a damning report.
That said, it seems inconceivable to me that the bias by multiple Dems participating in the conduct of the FISA authorized investigation could exercise an unbiased interpretation of ANY material gathered on the target. Yet this is the only takeaway voiced by the Lame Stream Media (particularly CNN and MSNBC).
How many times have you heard that people “unconsciously” incorporate their personal bias on different races into their interpretation and actions represented in their professional work? Millions of dollars are being spent on “educating” workers on how they are subject to these “unconscious” biases and must carefully evaluate their work product to exclude that influence.
The FISA resulting actions, as well as the Mueller investigation and report, were UNDOUBTEDLY influenced by anti-Trump bias. Thirteen of the initial 15 prosecutors and 18 of the final 23 prosecutors participating in the Mueller investigation were money contributors to the Hillary presidential campaign against Trump.
Now that the Democrats have lost all credibility, they are now trying to turn the tables in the IG ‘s hearing on Capitol Hill right now and trying to discredit in any way they can Durham’s investigation through Horowitz and his report and what he say’s now on capital hill.
These Democrats are running scared and don’t know if Durhams has the goods on any of them and their involvement in the 2016 election interference and their contacts overseas and if Durham got someone to turn state evidence against them or Obama and people in his administration. I can not wait until that information is released to the public, and those very trials get underway.
Fire everyone who did not follow the rules or mislead and charge the worst offenders. That is a beginning in making sure it never happens again. Anything thing less leaves the same people there to do it again and shows other people they can get off with a slap on the wrist for doing these things. Heads need to roll.
I guess Comey will have to beg someone to vindicate his name later.
