Another bull shit story Donald Trump tried selling is found wanting….
In his long-awaited report into the origins of the 2016 Russia probe, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found “serious performance failures” by some FBI officials, but ultimately concluded that the investigation was not tainted by political bias.
Why it matters: President Trump and his allies have long believed that Horowitz would find bias and wrongdoing at the top ranks of the FBI, advancing allegations that the Russia investigation was a politically motivated hit job. While Horowitz does rebuke some low-level officials for carelessness and impropriety while filing surveillance applications, his report ultimately concludes that the basis for the FBI’s investigation was legitimate…..
Perhaps fearing the wrath of Trump?
AG Barr and US Atty Durham are NOT agreeing with the IG’s conclusions absolving the FBI of any major wrongdoing…
