WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of Inspector General Announced Wednesday that it is investigating alleged FIA abuses by the FBI and DOJ at the request of congress and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Evidence has piled up that both organizations may have abused the FISA court to advance the investigation and surveillance of Donald Trump.
“Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced Wednesday he will investigate potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses by both the Justice Department and the FBI, following requests from Congress and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“The OIG will initiate a review that will examine the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s compliance with legal requirements, and with applicable DOJ and FBI policies and procedures, in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person,” the statement obtained by Fox News read. “As part of this examination, the OIG also will review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source.”
The OIG statement added that Horowitz will also “review the DOJ’s and FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.”
“If circumstances warrant, the OIG will consider including other issues that may arise during the course of the review,” the statement read.”
The genesis of the anti-Trump, Russian collusion narrative has been under increased scrutiny after congressional memos confirmed some of Republicans worst fears about the partisan, subjective, and potentially illegal FBI investigations into Trump.
Hopefully the OIG is a straight shooter and the ‘Deep State’ is held accountable for any misuse of police power for a political motive.
