    Specifically, the report concluded 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.

    Once again, the swamp protects their own.

    Tryin' to think of a good analogy... You bagged Sunday-dinner, but there's too much buckshot in it for a quick skin.

    I'm glad Inspector Durham released a clarifying statement, even though chunks of the IG's pee-report were stating what we knew were in it. 17 disparate cases of FBI-misconduct. Maybe more.

    Horowitz wasn't allowed to grill the conspirators on their political bias. He asked... but they all said they weren't biased. I'm not sure why the statute exists that he cannot press the conspirators beyond that.

    Looks like he nailed one of the FISA-judges for rubberstamping one of the applications without asking anything. No bias admitted to.

    Lisa Page comes off as boxed-in... if she wasn't operating out of biasness, why the heck was her work a total dereliction of FBI-procedure? It looks like she's going to drag McCabe down by the simple fact he didn't fire her. -Yeah, McCabe showed no bias, according to Horowitz. Anyway, tons of stuff still breaking-off so there'll be more nuggets thru-out the evening to go through.

    Btw, Durham's statement basically said there's bias everywhere and he wasn't taking various trips to Europe for nothing.

    Yeah, sure, more "nuggets" coming ... to anyone really looking and listening. But he gave the corrupt media all they need to run with: "no political bias" move along folks, nothing to see here.

    Inspector Generals are like the human resource arm of a company.

    Human resource divisions are not there to help employees but to help the company that they work for.

    Human resource departments take care of problems and protect companies!

    Inspector Generals can be said to work for the same reasons.

    If thereís a way to say that the department didnít violate the policy or law .. that is what they will do.

    Words like bad behavior and errors in judgment are used to describe the actions of rouge, (aka disposable employees) and are not a true representation of the agency itself.

    Now that that is out of the way, let's take a look at some reasons for why this report is very limited in scope.


    The Inspector General has said that he was looking into the surveillance of a certain person which we now know is Carter Page.

    The problem is ... Carter Page was just one of Trump's campaign associates that was spied on.
    (One area where Durham and Barr will dig further into)


    The Inspector General is inhibited from speaking to anyone not working at the Department of Justice at the time of his questioning.

    If theyíve retired or been fired, he canít force them to cooperate.
    (Think: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page Et al)

    And let's not forget Kevin Clinesmith!
    Clinesmith became infamous for his viva le resistance, (to Trump) while investigating the Clinton email fiasco.

    The same Clinesmith who was forced off of the Mueller Trump/Russian 'collusion' investigation after text messages showing his dislike/hatred of Trump were exposed.

    If they work at a different agency or department the situation is the same and they can't be forced to cooperate with the investigation.

    So now, you have an IG report with a lot of words with very little substance!

    If you have followed the Investigation into Trump from the beginning you know that there were numerous 'agencies' with their hand in the Russian Collusion fiasco and most especially ... the Steele Dossier.

    The dossier that was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

    The dossier was doled out by a number of agencies along with the DOJ and FBI!
    (Again, those agencies cannot be compelled to give testimony)

    Remember how 'upset' the democrats became when they learned of Bill Barr's appointment as Attorney General?

    I believe that they were 'upset' because they had reason to believe that he (Barr) would appoint a Special Prosecutor to head up a real and in-depth investigation, regardless of where it led!
    (The Special Prosecutor can compel testimony from outside the agency.)


    He did just that!

    The Department of Justice has revealed that the probe led by federal prosecutor John Durham has become a criminal investigation due to the wrongdoing it has found.

    And Finally ...

    How it all began:


    ========================================

    These are but a few of the people that the IG didn't interview.
    (If I read the rules of engagement correctly)

    I'd say that the report could have looked quite different if they had been interrogated!

    Peter Strzok, former deputy chief of counterintelligence
    FIRED


    Andrew McCabe, former FBI deputy director
    FIRED


    Lisa Page, former counsel to McCabe
    RESIGNED


    James Baker, former FBI general counsel
    RESIGNED


    Bill Priestap, former chief of counterintelligence
    RETIRED


    James Comey, former FBI director
    FIRED


    Bruce Ohr, former associate deputy attorney general
    REASSIGNED


    Christopher Steele, former FBI confidential human source

    Steele has never been an FBI employee, but a former British spy
    "When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead."

    "It is difficult only for the others."

    "It is the same when you are stupid."

    They're not 'running' with it so far, today. They're ultra-busy trying to stop votes for impeachment from bleeding-away by attempting to stave-off armies of Deplorables' comments. Comey tried to get some stuff out there, but he's being bombarded. As Brennan was last night.
