FBI was justified in opening Trump campaign probe, but case plagued by ‘serious failures,’ inspector general finds
"A Justice Department inspector general's report examining examining the FBI investigation of Trump's twenty sixteen campaign rebutted conservative accusations that top FBI officials were driven by political bias to legally spy on trump advisors but it also found broad and serious performance failures requiring major changes. The four hundred thirty four page report issued Monday by Justice Department. Inspector General Michael. Horowitz concluded that the F. B. I. had an authorized purpose when it initiated its investigation known as crossfire hurricane in doing so horowitz implicitly rejected assertions by the President and fellow Republicans that the case was launched instead of political animus or that the F. B. I.. Broke its own rules on using informants as the probe went on and the FBI sought court approval to survey a former campaign aide. The report reveals that officials repeatedly emphasized damaging information that they learned about trump associates but played down exculpatory evidence that they also also found. FBI Director. Chris Wray announced he will implement dozens of corrective measures in response to Horwitz's report. Andy said that disciplinary action remains means a possibility for bureau employees conservatives and liberals alike claimed victory after the report's release with Republicans asserting that exposed serious wrongdoing. We'll Democrats said it validated. The Russia investigation. The report which was based on more than one million documents and more than one hundred seventy interviews is the most exhaustive assessment to date eight of the investigation that has roiled trump's presidency but in the minutes after the document was released it became clear that the report would not be the last word in a statement attorney. General Bill Bar disagreed with one of the Inspector General's central conclusions saying the FBI launched an investigation of a presidential campaign quote on the thinnest of suspicions that were in my view insufficient to justify the steps taken so too did Connecticut. US Attorney John. Durham whom whom bar handpicked to conduct a separate investigation similar. To what Horowitz is doing. Durham put out a highly unusual statement for someone conducting an ongoing Criminal Investigation Gatien. That said he's gathered information from sources in and outside of the US. That Horowitz didn't have Durham said he advised the Inspector General that he does not agree. With the report's key conclusion related to predication which is whether the F. B. I.. Had enough information to open the case. Now what evidence Durham has to rebut. horwitz remains unclear. Some involved in the Russia case say they're mystified by the statement. Horowitz was particularly critical of applications the FBI made to the foreign intelligence surveillance court to monitor former trump campaign advisor. Carter page asserting that those applications contained quote significant inaccuracies in omissions and that agents failed to meet the basic obligation to ensure the applications were scrupulously accurate. The inspector general found that so many basic and fundamental errors were made by three separate handpicked teams on one of the most sensitive F. B. I.. Investigations there was briefed to the highest levels within the FBI. He concluded that there was a failure of not not only the operational team but also of the managers and supervisors including senior officials in the chain of command. Among those failures was the growing body of information mation the FBI had gathered suggesting that former British spy. Chris Steele whose reports the so-called dossier were key element justifying the surveillance of page was not not as reliable as source as officials had described the court when seeking the face of warrants. The report lays out in detail. How as the F. B. I.? Obtained additional information raising significant questions about the reliability of the steel reporting. The bureau failed to reassess. The original information didn't alert higher ups to the Justice Department and didn't notify. The judges is that had signed off on the FISA warrants as a result of those findings Horwitz has launched a broader audit of Fisa work to study how systemic those problems may be for Pfizer applications in counterintelligence and counterterrorism cases. Horwitz did not however conclude that the bureau's applications to monitor worked page should have been rejected.
