WASHINGTON, D.C. – While many in the media have downplayed the instances of bias already present in Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign, today, in questioning from U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) Committee hearing, Inspector General Horowitz admitted there was more than is being reported.
Inspector General Horowitz admitted bias from the FBI Office of the General Counsel attorney who faked evidence to the FISA court, and who had previously been reported to have texted in support of “the resistance” to President Trump.
While the media focus has been on Inspector General Horowitz’s reluctance to connect the bias to malfeasance, the report shows, and the author testified to, widespread bias and widespread misconduct.
