Has Fox News been working overtime trying to put their own spin on the IG Report? The same report that debunks Trump's claims?

Update:

What the IG report found

Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the FBI wasn’t motivated by bias in the Russia investigation. But the report called out missteps in the probe.

    If you will read the report and understand the purpose of it, you will discover that it is very bad for the anti-Trump people. It is not a prosecutorial indictment and you are making the mistake of spinning it like it is. The IG report is more along the lines of following agency processes and procedures, and makes the basic assumption that individuals tried and the systems failed them. The report lists the failures in the process. The motivation that caused these failures is in the purview of Durham, as a prosecuting attorney. Throughout the report, there is an inference of an intent or undercurrent to get the Trump people. This attitude is presented in the report. The report does provide some clarification. Like how did Carter page and Russia get into this. Well, Carter Page was a lesser CIA agent and had some dealings with Russia. He decided to support Trump and joined the Trump team.

    So, the question for Durham could be did that make Brennan mad, and Brennan ordered Carter to be a target and the FBI then had to scramble to make up excuses to justify the spying. Excuses being the famous Russian dossier. It all fitted to the Russian problems going back to the Hillary server hack, so they had a commonality to develop a scam. Note that in that scenario, there is no FBI bias as per the IG report. Brennan is CIA and beyond the scope of the IG.

    Hardly; probably to the contrary based on the nature of your statement which is designed to insult and upset, not ask anything. Such bigotry is a blatant violation of the terms of use of this forum and is disgusting. There is more than sufficient anger based upon bigotry already and adding more is not justified; you should be ashamed of your behavior.

    Of course.  No doubt it will have something to do with sunspots and the moons of Jupiter.

    17 lies on the FISA applications and the FBI moving forward on the thinnest of suspicions and you think that proves you right?

    The only they did not conclude was a political bias.  That is only because they could not find the political bias written out.  

    It does prove political bias.  There is not a chance they would have pulled all of these stunts or even started these investigations on the thinnest of suspicions if they did not have political bias.

    It nails the democrats to the wall.  This whole impeachment fiasco is a smokescreen to cover for the leftists and their hideous crimes.
