IG Report Contradicts Its Own Conclusion

IG Report Contradicts Its Own Conclusion
December 11

The long-awaited IG Report was finally released to the public on Monday – but what we received was another bureaucratic document conflating facts into a hodgepodge of confusion contradictions worthy of the deep-state.

Most critical thinking conservatives had concluded that Michael Horowitz, although an Obama appointee, was a straight-shooter. He was someone who could be trusted to write an accurate report, and although the report may be technically correct within its findings, the general takeaway from the long-anticipated report remarkably mirrors to some degree the Mueller Report in its final analysis.

Horowitz much like Mueller refused to draw any conclusions, despite chronicling numerous incidents of wrongdoings by the FBI that would draw any reasonable individual to a logical deduction.

However both of these individuals tasked with writing comprehensive reports, decided instead to continue conflating facts, by omitting the obvious abuse of power by government officials.

Perhaps it’s too much to expect for someone in Horowitz’s position working for the Justice Department, to be independent and actually investigate accurately the department you’re working for, without feeling a bit queasy.

It was apparent after reading the report, Horowitz was walking a very fine line between reporting the facts uncovered, and the conclusions reached, which of course he avoided, allowing once again partisan individuals to cherry-pick whatever “facts” suited them.

For example, the report concluded there was no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding the FBI probe of Carter Page using the controversial FISA Court to launch the investigation.

Howev,er within the next paragraph, Horowitz chronicles numerous “errors” in the application process, and at least 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the Page applications.

Although Horowitz was sharply critical at times with the FBI’s handling of the Page case, even referencing the bureau’s failure to share information that would have seriously questioned the initial documentation for opening the probe of Page, in the first place.

Horowitz for some unexplained reason couldn’t bring himself to draw any conclusions surrounding the motives of the FBI, concerning all “17 significant inaccuracies and omissions,” that oddly enough all 17 went against the Trump administration.

The report did however conclude: “The Crossfire Hurricane team failed to inform department officials of significant information that was available to the team at the time that the FISA applications were drafted and filed. Much of that information was inconsistent with, or undercut, the assertions contained in the FISA applications that were used to support probable cause and, in some instances, resulted in inaccurate information being included in the applications.”

Yet the report emphatically states that investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding the probe’s launch and efforts to seek a controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the investigation.

The obvious disconnect between the actual written report, and Horowitz’s skewed conclusions, actually became a point of contention within an hour of the report going public.

In an unprecedented rebuke of Horowitz’s findings, U.S. Attorney John Durham tweeted out, he did “not agree” with the IG report.

“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,” Durham said in his statement, adding that his “investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department” and “has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.”

The question of whether Horowitz was attempting to conflate his findings by purposely downplaying the facts may be revealed Wednesday, when he appears under oath in front of the Senate, chaired by Senator Lindsey Graham.
