The much anticipated Inspector General’s has amounted to nothing, as I predicted. Michael Horowitz found that the senior management of the FBI was guilty of 17 violations, but that the investigation into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia were justified for national security reasons. In the mean time, Attorney General Barr and federal prosecutor, John Durham, have disagreed with these conclusions. Their investigation will continue.
This confirms my suspicions that the IG’s report would be a whitewash. It is one more example of a swamp creature taking care of his own. “Seventeen violations” by senior FBI management and an attempted coup carried out against a sitting president don’t matter to him. Two years of the fraudulent Mueller Report don’t matter. The cancer is allowed to continue.
