TOTAL ‘FAILURE’: IG Horowitz Slams FBI’s Russia Probe; Says Nobody ‘Vindicated’ in His Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.11.19

Inspector General Michael Horowitz directly refuted former FBI Director James Comey’s claims the report “vindicates” him of wrongdoing Wednesday; saying his findings “don’t vindicate anybody.”

“Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz declared a ‘failure’ by the entire ‘chain of command’ involved in the FBI’s initial Trump-Russia investigation, in blistering testimony Wednesday that called out ‘basic and fundamental errors’ at the bureau while stressing that his newly released report on the probe does not ‘vindicate’ anyone,” reports Fox News.

“The tone of the testimony, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, ran counter to much of the coverage surrounding the report’s release that zeroed in on a core finding that investigators found no evidence of political bias and were indeed justified in launching the 2016 probe,” adds Fox.

“Can you say it wasn’t because of political bias?” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked.

“I think the activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this FISA,” fired-back Horowitz.

BARR TALK: AG Barr Blasts the FBI’s Russia Probe, Slams Investigators for ‘Gross Abuse’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.10.19

Attorney General Bill Barr weighed-in Tuesday on the recently released Inspector General’s report; saying the FBI practiced “gross abuse” that relied on “flimsy evidence” to surveil senior Trump associates during the 2016 election.

“Attorney General Bill Bar is blasting the FBI’s conduct during the Russia investigation, saying investigators relied on ‘flimsy’ evidence in launching the probe and disputing key conclusions from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report released Monday,” reports Fox News.

“It’s hard to look at this stuff and not think that it was a gross abuse,” Barr said. “Where I disagree with Mike, I just think this was very flimsy.”

“The normal thing to do in this situation,” Barr said, “is to go to the campaign, and here I don’t think there’s a legitimate explanation for why they didn’t.”

BUSTED: CNN Under Fire for Refusing to Air Sen. Graham’s Opening Statement During Hearings

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.11.19

CNN found itself in hot-water Wednesday after the network failed to air Sen. Lindsey Graham’s opening statement at the Judiciary Committee; ignoring the lawmaker’s powerful remarks on the FBI’s botched Russia probe.

“CNN was alone among the three major cable news networks in deciding not to televise Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., deliver his opening statement on Wednesday prior to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hotly-anticipated testimony,” reports Fox News.

 

“Graham’s powerful remarks included examples of bias against President Trump and other Republicans from top FBI officials and criticism of media coverage that dismissed the FISA report as concluding the FBI made errors at a low level,” adds Fox.

“The first thing I want you to know is how the cake is baked here and my goal is to make sure … you look at this as more than a few irregularities, because if this becomes a few irregularities in America, then God help us all,” Graham said.

CNN has so-far not responded to the incident.
