In a stunning turn of events John Durham, the U.S. attorney charged with carrying out a massive investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, has come out and openly undercut the FISA report, which claimed the probe’s conduct ‘largely complied’ with FBI and DOJ regulations.
As Fox News reports:
“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,” U.S. Attorney John Durham said in a statement.
Horowitz released his report Monday saying his investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding efforts to launch that 2016 probe and to seek a highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the investigation. Still, it found that there were “significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation were conducted and supervised.”…
“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff,” Durham said. “However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.”…
Fox News reported in October that Durham’s ongoing probe has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation.
It seems one party or another in this entire affair isn’t being entirely honest with the American public, and it isn’t John Durham.
