nearvideo report: the Criminal transfers, probably in Horowitz FISA report abuse
Study results expected shortly; to weigh in, Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz and Rep. Andy Biggs.
Justice Department inspector General Michael Horowitz has evidence has been found that an FBI lawyer tampered with a key investigative documents in connection with the FBI’s secret monitoring of a former trump campaign consultant — enough to change the substantive meaning of the document, according to multiple reports.
The show-Stopper development comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., told Fox News that Horowitz gives a extensive report on the allegations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) guarantee abuse against the former trump campaign aide Carter-page published. Dec. 9. “It’s locked,” Graham said.
The new findings about the altered document related to the FBI-FISA-court-warrant application to monitor page, it is expected that in the described Horowitz’s forthcoming report. CNN first reported the news, which is largely confirmed by The Washington Post.
But the Post, hours after the publication of his history, strikingly removed, the part of the reporting that the FBI worked with the employees involved “in” Peter Strzok, the FBI is triggered in the head of counterintelligence. The Post does not offer an explanation for the change, which occurred shortly after midnight. Earlier this week, the DOJ has highlighted a whole series of anti-Trump-text messages sent by Strzok, if he’s the Hillary Clinton E-Mail investigation and the probe into the trump campaign.
“The person under control has not been identified, but no high-ranking official, she worked under former deputy assistant director Peter Strzok, according to people familiar with the investigation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss material not yet made public has been,” The Post wrote in a now-deleted paragraph.
WAYBACK MACHINE SHOWS THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE POST STORY, THE STEALTH DELETION
The paper added, finally, a correction to the bottom of the piece that read, “correction: An earlier version of this story stated incorrectly that the FBI investigates employees who worked for the amendment of a document, including the former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok. The employee was a low-level lawyer in the legal Department and do not report to the deputy assistant director.”
Nevertheless, Horowitz stated, allegedly, that the FBI was involved enough in the FISA process indicate incorrectly that he “back up documentation to a claim, which he had made, and in discussions with the Ministry of justice about the factual basis” for the FISA warrant application, the reported Post. Then the FBI employees allegedly “altered E-to justify Mail”, his inaccurate version of events. In the meantime, has forced the staff was out of the office.
One-time adviser to US President Donald Trump, Carter Page, was as an “agent of a foreign power” by the FBI in its 2016 FISA surveillance application guarantee. He was not accused of misconduct, despite more than a year of monitoring, and several holes in the FBI’s FISA case. (AP)
In its first year, 2016 FISA warrant power application, the FBI flatly called the page “agent of a foreign.”
Sources told Fox News last month that U.S. attorney John Durham separately, the ongoing probe into potential FBI and Department of justice misconduct in the run-up to the election in 2016 by the spring of 2017 transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, and that Horowitz’s report will shed light on why Durham-probe has the investigation to a criminal.

Durham has allegedly Horowitz included findings about the fake FISA document, so the ex-FBI lawyer who made the changes now, in the context of criminal investigations. The Post noted, however, that the document was not of Central importance for the legality of the FISA warrant, the against side.
Republicans have long argued that the FBI, the alleged FISA abuses that came when the Bureau aggressively pursues ultimately unfounded allegations of criminal connections between the Trump team and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, which were motivated politically. In the last few months a number of documents has been excavated, reinforced these claims.
Only nine days before the FBI requested their first FISA warrant to page, bureau guards, officials from a fight with a senior justice Department officials, had “continuing concerns” about the “possible bias” of a Central source, the application, in accordance with internal SMS news before Fox News.
2016-messages sent between Lisa’s side and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, also showed that the bureau brass in circulation, the blog a minimum of two anti-Trump articles, including a Lawfare blog, sent mail, shortly after the election day, Trump called possibly “the most important threats to the security of the country.”

Fox News is told that the texts were application with the ultimately successful side-that rely in part on information from the British ex-spy Christopher Steele – the anti-Trump’s views are now well documented and the cited page is to be believed Russia relations. In his warrant application, the FBI secured inaccurate, the FISA court of justice on numerous occasions that the media confirmed independently, Steele claimed, and it is not clear said that Steele worked for a company hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Much of the Steele dossier has proven, discredited or unfounded, including the dossier of claims is the trump campaign was the hackers and pay to the United States from a non-existent Russian Consulate in Miami, or that the ex-trump lawyer Michael Cohen, traveled to Prague with the Russians. Special Counsel Robert Muller was not also justified in the position that the dossier claimed that Carter had received a large payment in connection with the sale of one share of Rosneft, a Russian oil giant, or that a Thriller was blackmail tape with the President.
Despite being accused by the FBI, a Russian agent in the FISA application, and is secretly monitored for more than a year, the page has not been charged with wrongdoing. He has sued, numerous actors-including the DNC-for defamation claims, he worked with Russia.

“OI [Office of Intelligence] has now wrote a robust explanation again, all of the possible bias of the chs [confidential human source] in the package,” Lisa page McCabe on Oct. 12, 2016. “Don’t know what the disability is, unlike Stu’s concerns.”
It is unclear whether the confidential source in question was a Steele or a different individual. “Stu” was an obvious reference to Stuart Evans, the DOJ National Security Division deputy assistant attorney general. In a previously excavated and as-unredacted text message, Strzok written page, he is “Currently fighting with Stu for this FISA” in late 2016.
Page is not the only trump card of the official to claim that misconduct by the FBI. Last month, an explosive court filing by Michael Flynn’s claims legal team that FBI agents manipulated the official records of the former national security Advisor of 2017 interview led him to be charged with lying to investigators. Flynn’s lawyers requested the FBI to search its internal “Sentinel” system, you can find more evidence of allegedly fake files.

Newly released text messages with the text messages between Strzok, a former FBI lawyer, Lisa-page revealed that the page-who was present for the Flynn-interview-and he had apparently made “edits” to the so-called “302” eye-witness report in the case, that was the key to Flynn’s prosecution charge to a false statements. Page said Strzok on February 10, 2017, you “gave up my edits to the Bill, to have it on your Desk.”
Horowitz told congressional lawmakers in a February letter that his investigation and subsequent report were nearing completion.

The “long” draft report “deals with sensitive national security and law enforcement is important,” Horowitz wrote in the letter, adding that he expects “the final report will be released to the public with some redactions.”
Horowitz noted that he expected that the necessity of preparing or issuing “separate classified and public versions of the report.”
“After we get the final classification marks from the Department and the FBI, we then proceed with our usual procedures for the preparation of the final report, including the position that adequate reviews occur, for accuracy and comment purposes,” Horowitz wrote in the letter. “Once started, we expect the time that the assessment is too long.”
