Report will clear FBI of misdeeds in Russia probe
LA Times ^ | 12 07 2019 | Del Quentin Wilber

Posted on 12/07/2019 1:27:05 PM PST by yesthatjallen

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has determined that political bias did not influence the federal investigation of potential links between Russia and the Trump campaign in 2016, according to people familiar with the matter, countering White House claims of deliberate partisan influence.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who will release his long-anticipated report Monday, also found that the FBI had enough evidence to justify obtaining a foreign intelligence warrant in 2016 to conduct secret surveillance of a former Trump campaign advisor who had multiple contacts with Russian officials, the people said.

The report’s findings are expected to effectively reject or dismiss the most explosive allegations from President Trump and his allies — that FBI officials and agents broke rules and laws in their pursuit of evidence, and deliberately sought to derail Trump’s candidacy.

What utter garbage. The FBI cannot investigate itself. The Deep State will not allow the truth to be told.

I thought this was supposed to be a bombshell report...but recently we have been told to lower expectations. But just wait....Barr will be the one to bring justice. Starting to doubt it all.

I kind of feel like we’ve been played in the same way the media has played their democrat base these past three years.

Like f’ing HELL it does. These people are crapping themselves with misdirection and soft soaping what they CANNOT know, except from leaks from people who are in serious trouble.

“Evidence”.... manufactured and submitted falsely to the FISA court as “evidence”. The Steele write up— total fraud. No way the IG says this... evidence of FRAUD is overwhelming.

“The reputation of the FBI hangs in the balance.”

I think that ship has sailed, man.

So based on this, its perfectly ok for Americans to spy on the FBI.
Long past time!

Ruby Ridge
Waco
‘93 WTC
911
Flight 800
Terrorist attacks in CA

All covered up by the FBI or instigated by the FBI against Americans

How does this jerk know what is in a supposedly classified report? Leaks? Well, who then? Come on Wilber, who committed a crime in letting you see or know what is supposedly in the report before it was authorized for public release?

Should the IG FISA report turn out to be a killer I wonder how many nothing burger salespeople will report back with apologies for implying that Trump/Barr/Horowitz et al are nothing but deep state lackies who will never expose the truth.

You were saying?

“No political bias”

So-I’ve come back to the thread. Will you?

There it is. Freepers regurgitating MSM talking points like trained seals. Did you read even the title of the report? Not one but four FISA warrants were obtained by Comey FBI. People are going to jail over the revelations in this report. You might want to restrain your glee for a few minutes until serious analysis of the report emerges.

Lol. Yeah. OK. Make no mistake-it’s not glee. It’s a whitewash. It’s already been proven there are issues. They slam the FBI-b it say there is not police bias-which we know is a lie. THAT is in the report. There is NO FINDING OF POLITICAL BIAS. If you think that’s a legit finding, you’re a fool.

It’s NOT a legit finding-and that taints EVERYTHING

It very clearly clears the big guys of political bias and destroys the Trump narrative that there was. We know there was-and this report says there wasn’t. Go ahead-defend that.

"it was PROPER to launch the investigation" - it was "proper" to seek a warrant on Carter Paige.

And basically - the report says that the FBI has some misconduct by individuals - but overall the mantra that has been maintained by Trump and Barr is not correct. That it WAS proper.

Some folks "may" go to jail - but it is low-level guys - and it by NO MEANS is a "killer" taking down the entire organization supporting what we know happened - which is what people like you promised us would happen for MONTHS.

“Peter Strozk and his ‘paramour’”

You’re very kind with your euphemisms.

There is SPIN all over this... Doesn’t matter what the report actually says, the left will find quotes to pull that say no wrongdoing, and the right will find quotes that say there was.. and few will actually read the whole thing, so the bulk will simply believe it says whatever their biased editorial boards tell them it says.

"U.S. attorney John Durham issues a response to the DOJ IG report, saying his office does "not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”

Wait - I thought Horowitz was all on the up and up? I thought this was the KILL SHOT? BUt wait...here is Durham saying - wait here a minute buddy!

Yeah - TOLD YOU
