US Attorney Objects to IG Findings

US Attorney Objects to IG Findings

US Attorney John Durham has been investigating the origins of the Russia probe, and on Monday he released a rare statement.

“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.”

This statement came the same day that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) report saying that the probe complied with FBI and DOJ policies. Horowitz did add that there are “significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation were conducted and supervised.”

Attorney General William Barr feels vindicated by that part of the Inspector General’s report, saying, “The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.”
