ICYMI: The Left, Right and Victims Are Concerned by the DOJ IG’s Findings About FISA and the Trump Campaign
There is a lot to unpack in Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the review of four FISA applications. It is impossible in one short blog post to detail all of the things uncovered. The only safe conclusion is all Americans should be upset by this report. As one group said (emphasis added):
For instance, the litany of problems with the Carter Page surveillance applications demonstrates how the secrecy shrouding the government’s one-sided FISA approval process breeds abuse. . . . The FBI must also adopt higher standards for investigations involving constitutionally protected sensitive activities, such as political campaigns.
That statement is not from a Republican or a conservative group, it is from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Speaking of Carter Page, he has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal which begins:Read more
This week, former Attorney General Eric Holder has made incredibly hypocritical comments. While many politicians are guilty of hubris, few take it to the level that Eric Holder has done.
First, Holder attacked current Attorney General William Barr. Holder expressed concern about Barr not being "neutral." This is especially ironic since Holder bragged he was President Obama’s "wingman." He said this multiple times, including in 2013: “I’m still the President’s wing-man, so I’m there with my boy.”Read more
If journalists were remotely objective, they would praise Attorney General Bill Barr for releasing virtually the entire “Mueller report.” On the other hand, if they were objective, they would condemn Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder for his complete stonewalling of the Fast and Furious investigation. That said, the rare objective journalist Sharyl Attkisson is still working on getting the truth of the Eric Holder Justice Department’s Fast and Furious scandal (emphasis in original):Read more

They all relate to the Clinton investigation and origins of the Trump probe and so-called "campaign collusion" investigation.
This is the latest in Representative Collins's effort to offer clear and transparent information to the American public about possible bias against Mr. Trump. Previously, Representative Collins released scores of other transcripts, include the troubling testimony by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Last night, Representative Collins tweeted his House Floor speech where he entered this information to the record:Read more
Yesterday, Democrat Presidential Candidate and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper a “blatant liar.” Gabbard said:
"I think you had the director of the Department of National Intelligence at that time, James Clapper, who sat before the United States Senate and blatantly lied," Gabbard charged.
"He was asked very directly, 'Are you collecting this information,' and he said 'no.' 'Are you collecting this information on American citizens' and he said, 'no.' And yet, he is somebody you see on TV almost every day as an expert in this country without any consequence lying to the American people."Read more
