Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report revealed ” numerous serious factual errors and omissions,” as well as “serious performance failures” on the part of the FBI, led by James Comey Jr., and now it remains to be seen who will be charged.
The question is, “Why is Department of Justice Bruce Ohr still collecting a paycheck from the DOJ, since Horowitz found that “he committed consequential errors in judgment,” in relation to the dubious Steele dossier, as it is stated by Fox News.
The dossier prepared by former British spy Christopher Steele was funded by Hillary Clinton’s pro-choice campaign, and was used as the basis for the investigation into Trump’s false collusion with Russia, even though the data was known to be unreliable.
Similarly, the case of former FBI deputy director and CNN collaborator Andrew McCabe is also troubling.
McCabe was singled out in September by federal prosecutors who recommended that he be charged with allegedly making false statements to Inspector General Horowitz’s investigative team in 2017.
Former CIA director John Brennan and former director of National Intelligence James Clapper were similarly exposed.
A representative of Hillary Clinton’s campaign or the Democratic National Committee who may be aware of internal Justice Department or FBI activities related to obtaining FISA warrants during the 2016 campaign could also be charged.
A question also lingers about President Barack Obama’s involvement or at least how much he knew or if the White House took part in the decision to go ahead with the FISA warrant to spy on Page.
Another of those involved would be the founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson. Fusion GPS hired former spy Christopher Steele, who drafted the controversial document that was the basis for the inappropriate investigation carried out by special lawyer Robert Mueller, in which $32 million of the taxpayers’ money was spent during the two years of the investigation.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on Dec. 11 to consider the results presented by Horowitz’s report.
In preparing his report, Horowitz “examined more than one million documents … and conducted over 170 interviews involving more than 100 witnesses,” reported the U.S. Department of Justice, and it is expected that this report will have far-reaching consequences and sentences will certainly be handed down.
