So Horowitz is technically correct that the FBI never spied on the campaign? That it was actually the CIA who sent out Downer, Aza Turk, Halper, etc?
What is wrong with everyone’s understanding of the English language. He did not say and has not claimed there is no bias. He has stated that nobody told him they were bias and they didn’t write it down on a piece of paper saying that they were bias.

Well yeah if you turn the report upside down and read it with one eye closed and the other squinted that's what it says.
But in actuality is says they cant indict a sitting president. Even though they had the goods on him.
Myth 1: The CIA spies on US citizens
The CIA’s mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the president in Executive Order 12333 of 1981, and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens. Collection is allowed only for an authorized intelligence purpose; for example, if there is a reason to believe that an individual is involved in espionage or international terrorist activities. The CIA's procedures require senior approval for any such collection that is allowed, and, depending on the collection technique employed, the sanction of the Director of National Intelligence and Attorney General may be required. These restrictions have been in effect since the 1970s.
The FBI has the lead on intelligence matters in the United States, especially those directed against US citizens. The CIA does not collect information concerning the domestic activities of US citizens, but its foreign intelligence collection mission can be conducted anywhere.
