The Justice Departments 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.

Gee, does this mean that I am to ignore thousands of texts between Peter Strozk and his paramour where they discussed how to sabotage The Donald?
You get the worst government you are willing to tolerate.
The IG is basically the FBI investigating itself.
This report was always going to be a nothingburger.
Yep. The elites arent accountable.
As expected, the whitewash must be a foot thick. There will be no justice from within the system.
Can’t see how Horowitz can walk out of this without finding the FBI was extremely biased. The record is astonishing on that point. He will certainly lose any reputation for honesty he may have had.
we should all have long since learned our lesson about these leaks.
AG Barr has already come out saying that he disagrees with some things in the report, including this stuff...
Complete BS.... Fake News!!!
The IG is a Scam.
He serves the Directors of the agencies.
He is there to keep real authorities from getting involved.
Jeff Sessions did this -100%.
It’s like Rush said — Horowitz is one of the swamp creatures.
Ho, ho. Ha, ha. It is to laugh.
On the bright side this might galvanized we Trump folk. Politics isnt going to fix the mess were in.
I wish it true that all these IG finds nothing stories were planted and it turns out the IG finds criminal violations. Now that would be funny!
Horowitz. Deep State. Yawn.
Dear Mr. President ; Please assume full plenary powers. Suspend Congress for a time. Declare temporary martial law. Let’s get this whole deep state mess cleaned up. Once and for all.
And , oh, please ban and outlaw the Democrat Party while you are at it .
Don’t worry, linda will get to the bottom of it. Ya, /s
