(Natural News)
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his long-awaited report on abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court by the FBI, and it contained very damning information.

As NewsTarget reported, Horowitz found “clear abuse” of the FISA application process used by the FBI to obtain surveillance warrants to spy on a member of the 2016 Trump campaign as well as “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the application process — by seasoned federal agents, mind you — in the effort to place 2016 Trump campaign adviser Carter Page under surveillance.

Agents also “failed to meet the basic obligation” to make sure that applications were “scrupulously accurate,” the report noted. 

However, the news site noted further: 

But the IG also said he found no evidence of ‘political bias’ on the part of the Obama FBI and Justice Department in launching Spygate — despite the fact that everyone involved in the operation hated Trump, said as much in a series of memos and tweets, and that evidence was fabricated by at least one FBI attorney, all while misrepresenting former British spy Christopher Steele’s “Russia dossier” (which was bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC).

That finding, which simply means Horowitz did not interview any witnesses who copped to spying on the Trump campaign ‘for political reasons,’ was used by fired FBI Director James Comey to blast the president and his administration and supporters for “lying” about him all this time.

As reported by the Washington Times, Comey went so far as to accuse Attorney General William Barr in an op-ed for the very partisan Washington Post of ‘sliming’ the Justice Department by claiming that federal agents spied on the campaign.

“Well, the wait is over and those who smeared the FBI are due for an accounting,” Comey wrote.

“In particularly, [Barr] owes the institution he leads, and the American people, an acknowledgement of the truth.”

Comey should be in jail

In continuing his assault, the disgraced former FBI director said that Barr “slimed” the DoJ by supporting President Trump’s claims that his campaign was indeed spied upon.

“Unfortunately, it appears that Barr will continue his practice of deriding the Justice Department when the facts don’t agree with Trump’s fiction,” he wrote. “Pointing to his personally commissioned ‘review’ of the FBI’s case-opening, Barr has declared it is too soon to conclude the FBI was right to start an investigation. If his goal is to simply support the president’s conspiracy theories, it will always be too soon to acknowledge the facts.”

The fact is, Comey is projecting and posturing. He knows the Trump campaign was spied on; he was responsible for seeking the initial FISA warrant and subsequent warrants. 

The New York Times reported the day Trump was inaugurated in January 2017 his campaign was spied on — “wiretapped,” in fact. 

And in fact, during testimony Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Horowitz admitted that the Trump campaign was spied on and that Comey’s FBI should have seriously reconsidered ending their surveillance of Page in early 2017 after it became apparent to them that he wasn’t a ‘Russian asset.’

At that point, Horowitz noted, the exoneration of Page casts serious doubts on their continued legal right to surveil him (which, by the way, was only taking place because of a fabricated narrative — “Trump-Russia collusion” — that Comey likely played a part in developing).

The facts are clear: The FBI, under Comey, came up with an excuse to put the Trump campaign under surveillance; there never was any Trump-Russia collusion, as even Robert Mueller notes; and Comey was involved in spying on the Trump campaign, period.

If anyone owes someone else an apology, it’s Comey — to President Trump, to Barr, to the FBI he politicized, and the American people.

This man should be indicted.
