Barack Obama and his allies hoped Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI spying on the Trump campaign would put this scandal to bed.
How wrong they were.
And Trey Gowdy pointed out one truth that has the Barack Obama Deep State panicking.
James Comey and other Obama Deep State henchman seized on Horowitz’s finding that that there was no testimonial or documentary evidence of political bias in the FBI opening the Russian investigation to claim “vindication.”
During an interview on Fox News, Gowdy pointed out how wrong this was.
First of all, Horowitz said he could not eliminate political bias from factoring into the all the FBI’s investigative decisions after the case was opened.
And second of all, Gowdy noted that the FBI manufactured evidence to frame Cater Page as a Russian agent to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on him.
Comey’s claims came from IG Horowitz’s general findings of no political vendetta against President Donald Trump in starting the investigation into the Trump campaign.
“I mean, keep in mind, a counterintelligence investigation is because you think Carter Page is working on behalf of Russia,” Gowdy said. The reality is Carter Page, who is working on behalf of the United States of America and you changed it from he is a [CIA] source [to] he’s not a source, which is a manifestly unfair thing to do to Carter Page.
“So, when Horowitz says there was no bias in the inception; there was a lot of bias from every point thereafter, including an FBI lawyer manufacturing evidence to get a surveillance warrant against an American citizen.”
At every step of the investigation, the FBI learned there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
And yet the investigation dragged on for months and months.
The FBI ignored the lack of evidence and pressed forward because the people in charge of the case all hated Donald Trump and thought he was guilty.
