Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally done it.
Evidence of scandal and corruption has piled up implicating James Comey and the FBI’s involvement in the worst scandal in American political history.
And after months of begging him to take action, Sessions finally made the one announcement that the FBI and Deep State have feared the most.
Ever since the Nunes memo was made public, Trump supporters have been wondering why there has been no investigation into the FBI’s abuse of power by using the Christopher Steele Russia dossier as their basis for obtaining a warrant to spy on Carter Page.
Their wrongdoing is clear.
Critics believe the FBI misled the FISA court by not being 100 percent truthful about the origins of the dossier in their application.
Sessions finally announced that the Department of Justice Inspector General would investigate the FBI for FISA abuses in the matter.
Fox News reports:
“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 that as one of the matters he’ll deal with.”
In an earlier interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sessions told host Maria Bartiromo that there would be an investigation into how the FBI used the dossier to secure a wiretap.
“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.”
After 18 months of investigations, no evidence has turned up implicating that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.
The real evidence – and scandal – is the FBI’s conduct.
The Nunes memo outlines the clear wrongdoing – and many critics would say criminal conduct – carried out by the FBI and high-level Obama administration officials.
An Inspector General investigation is a good first step.
The Inspector General investigation into the FBI’s conduct of the Clinton email investigation already uncovered the text messages sent by anti-Trump FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, so this inquiry could reveal even more of the Bureau’s dirty secrets.
