Barr and Durham Slam Conclusion of Inspector General FISA Probe Report

The Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report on how the FBI handled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications to initiate surveillance on the Trump campaign.

The Inspector General’s report, over 400 pages long, concluded there was “no evidence of political bias or intentional misconduct.”

However, the Inspector General’s report did find there were “17 serious omissions, inaccuracies and failures,” as noted by investigative journalist John Solomon.

Horowitz is scheduled to testify in the Senate on December 11.

Attorney General William Barr blasted the FBI’s investigative work, calling it “intrusive.”

Fox News reports:

“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,” said Barr.

Read the full statement from the Justice Department:

U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating the origins of the Russia investigation launched by the Obama administration.

The outcome of Durham’s findings is expected in the near future and, importantly, he disagrees with the Inspector General’s conclusion that political bias was not part of the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign.

Following the release of the Inspector General’s report, Durham hit back at the findings in a statement.

Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel issued a warning on Twitter, saying, “Don’t lose focus” about the outcome of the Inspector General’s report and the actions of the FBI.

Clearly, those responsible for the inaccuracies and omissions over the FISA warrant applications must be held accountable.
