After months of inaction, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally stepped up.
It’s a day the Deep State’s been dreading.
Trump supporters cheered when Sessions made the big announcement that the Deep State has feared the most.
The Department of Justice announced that Inspector General Michael Horowitz would investigate the DOJ and the FBI for abuses in their application to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page.
Horowitz will also examine the contact information between the FBI and a confidential source – whom many believe to be Christopher Steele.
Steele was the ex-British intelligence agent who put together the Russian collusion dossier.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) will initiate a review that will examine the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) 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,” DOJ spokesman John Lavinsky said in a statement accompanying the announcement.
Lavinsky explained that “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.”
Lavinsky noted that the investigation was prompted by requests from several members of Congress and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. House Republicans recently released a memo claiming widespread abuse of the FISA process on the part of the DOJ and FBI in order to obtain a surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
The timing of the investigation and the reference to members of Congress point to Page as the U.S. person. The statement’s reference to a confidential source similarly floats concerns found in the Republican memo which found that the FBI and the DOJ did not disclose the political origins of the Steele dossier in its FISA application and revealed previously undisclosed testimony from former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe that an investigation into Page would not have occurred without Steele’s dossier.”
This is bad news for the Deep State.
Even though Horowitz is an Obama appointee, he has a reputation for his honesty and integrity.
His investigation into the Clinton email server led to the discovery of the anti-Trump text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
And Andrew McCabe was fired because he misled Horowitz’s investigators.
So this investigation will not be a white wash like the one James Comey led into Hillary’s email server.
The guilty parties will be found and they will be held accountable.
