Horowitz IG FISA abuse report, December 9, 2019, Link to report, Joe DiGenova: “devastating. It’s going to ruin careers, it’s going to make people have bar problems”?

“this is not how an American president should be impeached.”… Jonathan Turley

“I would say explosive and I would say, for people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels of the Justice Department–more important at the Justice Department–it’s going to be devastating. It’s going to ruin careers, it’s going to make people have bar problems”…Joe diGenova on OIG FISA report

“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October 23, 2019

 

US Department of Justice Inspector General Horowitz IG FISA abuse report:

***  Update – Attorney General Barr response  ***

“Attorney General William P. Barr issued the following statement:

“Nothing is more important than the credibility and integrity of the FBI and the Department of Justice.  That is why we must hold our investigators and prosecutors to the highest ethical and professional standards.  The Inspector General’s investigation has provided critical transparency and accountability, and his work is a credit to the Department of Justice.  I would like to thank the Inspector General and his team.

The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.  It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory.  Nevertheless, the investigation and surveillance was pushed forward for the duration of the campaign and deep into President Trump’s administration.  In the rush to obtain and maintain FISA surveillance of Trump campaign associates, FBI officials misled the FISA court, omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings, and suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source.  The Inspector General found the explanations given for these actions unsatisfactory.  While most of the misconduct identified by the Inspector General was committed in 2016 and 2017 by a small group of now-former FBI officials, the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.

FISA is an essential tool for the protection of the safety of the American people.  The Department of Justice and the FBI are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to rectify the abuses that occurred and to ensure the integrity of the FISA process going forward.

No one is more dismayed about the handling of these FISA applications than Director Wray.  I have full confidence in Director Wray and his team at the FBI, as well as the thousands of dedicated line agents who work tirelessly to protect our country.  I thank the Director for the comprehensive set of proposed reforms he is announcing today, and I look forward to working with him to implement these and any other appropriate measures.

With respect to DOJ personnel discussed in the report, the Department will follow all appropriate processes and procedures, including as to any potential disciplinary action.”

  1. “We identified at least 17 significant errors or
    omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications”
    OIG report

  2. “That so many basic and fundamental errors
    were made by three separate, hand- picked teams on
    one of the most sensitive FBI investigations that was
    briefed to the highest levels within the FBI, and that FBI
    officials expected would eventually be subjected to
    close scrutiny, raised significant questions regarding the
    FBI chain of command’s management and supervision
    of the FISA process.”

  4. The Whorowitz infestigation concludes that while they broke all the rules and used bogus evidence, it was still a legit investigation!

    The pantsuit sniffers at CNN and MSNBC will pretend like they’ve been vindicated.

  5. Make sure you read the Durham & Barr responses.

  6. Listening to Rush?

  7. They put the Steel dossier in the ICA report as an appendix along with a note that they didn’t rely on it.

    Think about that.

  8. “Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. 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.”

    ………..still not hearing, or seeing anything meaningful regarding the FISA BULLSH-T. EITHER COMEY SIGNED THE FISA PAPERS LEGALLY OR, HE LIED PROFUSELY. THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND…….EITHER HE LIED OR HE DIDN’T LIE. SADLY IT IS BEGINNING TO SOUND LIKE EVERYBODY THINKS COMEY TOLD THE TRUTH…………EVEN OUR SPINELESS CONSERVATIVES ARE NOW SOUNDING LIKE THEY BELIEVE THE POS (COMEY). I HAVE LOST CONFIDENCE IN OUR ALLEGED IG. IT APPEARS THAT HE TEETERS ON THE FENCE, AND LEANS ONLY FAR ENOUGH SOAS NOT TO DISTURB ANYBODY NEARBY. THE PROBABLE OUTCOME WILL BE COMEY WALKING FREE, AND MAYBE MCCABE TOO. WE DO NOT HAVE A GOVERNMENT……WE HAVE A MAFIA FAMILY FOR CONGRESS. SADLY MOST AMERICANS DON’T EVEN GIVE A DAMN…………HAVING TOO MUCH FUN GUZZLING BOOZE, DOING DRUGS, STUFFING THEIR PIE HOLES WITH TRUCK LOADS OF PIZZA, WATCHING NFL, BREEDING, PICKING THEIR NOSES, AND SMELLING LIKE PIGS.

LETS SEE IF HE HAS THE GONADS TO TAKE A US MARINE OUT BEHIND THE BARN. MR. MALARKEY WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE HIS HEAD SEVERELY RESHAPED.

  17. AND NOW………
    ………..the DEMOCRATS are trying to say they were the people who put through the so called TRADE DEAL. They are implying that the Republicans had nothing to do with it. HERE WE GO AGAIN……….ANOTHER LOAD OF DEMOCRATIC BULLSH-T. Obviously they are trying to steal the credit for Trump’s initiative. TYPICAL DEMOCRATIC BEHAVIOR.!!!!
