Earlier this month, the House and Senate Intelligence Committees issued reports indicating extreme abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by top-ranking DOJ-FBI personnel, in former President Barack Obama's administration.

Today, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed that the House/Senate reports indicate enough potential wrong-doing, to warrant an investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General, Michael E. Horowitz. (OIG Overview: oig.justice.gov... )

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday the inspector general of the Department of Justice will probe allegations of government surveillance abuse, in light of the memos released on Capitol Hill about FBI and DOJ efforts to obtain FISA warrants to surveil a Trump campaign adviser.

“We believe the Department of Justice must adhere to the high standards in the FISA court,” Sessions said during a news conference Tuesday. “Yes it will be investigated. And I think that's just the appropriate thing the inspector general will take, as one of the matters he'll deal with.”

“Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate,” he said. “That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate at the Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant.”


The involvement of the inspector general is significant. Over the last year, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been conducting a review of the FBI and DOJ’s actions related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. A final report on the investigation is expected within a few weeks.

SOURCE ARTICLE: www.foxnews.com...

The report that emerges from this investigation will confirm what the House and Senate Intelligence Committees reported in their FISA Memos.
House & Senate Summary of Findings: thefederalist.com...

There are now at least 5 investigations into mutliple layers of potential laws broken by Obama's Administration and Hillary Clinton, in coordination with a British spook and a Russian oligarch, to SPY ON and CREATE DIRT ON presidential candidate Donald Trump, his family, and campaign personnel. (People who get their news from CNN, ABC, NBC, etc., are stunned...then defensive...when they learn this.)

AG Jeff Sessions said last week that it's looking as if there is enough evidence being unearthed by the existing investigations, for a Special Counsel, or Federal Grand Jury, to take the lead. Once the big OIG report is issued by Inspector General Michael Horowitz in a few weeks, most believe that Sessions will then name a Special Prosecutor. The White House officially gave Mr. Sessions its approval last week.

Looks like Jeff’s clue phone just rang and he picked it up. Good! We need to take out the garbage left, right or center wherever it hides.

I think the IG report might disappoint mostly because it won't be as broad-scoped as people hoped.

I'm praying I'm wrong.

We've got a couple things going for us so far as IG Horowitz is concerned. He was really given the run around by folk in the last admin by stonewalling and otherwise limiting his power.

Going to war with deep state actions is all up hill but the IG dug in--he's sharp and formidable--got his powers back and he's getting some cooperation.

One early indicator of how serious a report this might be--finally--is that details from within the OIG report already caused Wray to remove McCabe. Looks like there's FBI white hats reporting to Horowitz too and altering 302's is only a part.

We've also got an outsider President this time and he's also the main victim of the criminal collusion, conspiracy, and cover-up that is now coming unraveled and drug into the light.

Let's hope Horowitz is the real deal and won't let big names slip away. I think he's serious about his job. If so, he's gonna deserve a top-tier medal.

How do you know? The evidence is there....investigate. No one (of relevance) is looking for small transgressions. The evidence points to so much more

It's mind-boggling how much tax money the Republican party wastes chasing its own tail.

Well if you mean nothing bad happened to Obama I would have to agree. However, if you think nothing bad happened to the country over his eight years in office I would have to remind you that it is impossible to convince someone of something different from that they lived. Things immediately come to mind like my tripling of health insurance costs and no economic growth. Then there was Benghazi and the IRS scandal. The list is very long if you care to open your eyes.

Context? okay let's go with that, so Sessions has never pressurized the FBI himself then?
Never mind that Sessions is more than a little dirty elsewhere himself..pot calling the kettle black you could say.

none of them will be able to point fingers and say well look what the republicans are getting away with because the republicans have been cleaned up from top to bottom

all of mullers charges seem petty as hell but it does clear the lot of wrong doing and allows for the dems to be under the same amount of scrutiny this time around

Your whataboutism aside....im not making reference to "pressurizing" the FBI. Was that autocorrect? If so, i'd need to see evidence of him politicizing the FBI before entertaining the thought.

But no, i don't like him. I'd rather see him forcefully removed from the planet via a Tesla Roadster.

What happened to the Nunes MEMO?

We were told that was going to be bigger than Watergate, it would blow open the entire "Deep State" MEGA Conspiracy for all to see!!!
Snicker snicker.


Now the big scandal is the footnotes in the FISA request were too small & the poor overworked judges made their decision without reading them because their eyes were too tired, awww.

LOL
Good luck with that.
