     * The Dept of Justice IG investigating the FBI found no spying, no bias, no criminality, 17 mistakes among man-years of work. 

     * The Intelligence IG investigating Trump's phone call found 'urgent concern' that necessitated informing Congress. 

     * Therfore the FBI is a LOT cleaner than Trump!

    QUOTING the actual report: "We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations"

    "... we concluded that the quantum of information articulated by the FBI to open the individual investigations on [George] Papadopoulos, [Carter] Page, [Michael] Flynn, and [Paul] Manafort in August 2016 was sufficient to satisfy the low threshold established by the Department and the FBI"

    -- Trump's DoJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz.

      So Ron, were the 17 "offenses" sufficient to cause the warrant to be issued when the warrants should not have been? IG says NO.

    Of course they are biased, 95% of government is corrupt.

    Washington was right saying parties make bad politics.

      If you believe that, then you must also believe that Trump completely FAILED in his promise to drain the swamp!

    Americans should be very concerned.  What we're witnessing is not just garden variety denial from Trump, Barr and their cronies.  There is something sinister going on.

    Just another in a long line of "But we will get the democrats when <the next big thing> happens." Of course the next big thing does not pan out so they repeat. Now they are putting their money on Durham, but he is looking at the same evidence as the IG was, so perhaps they should not hold their breath.

    The IG says he was unable to find documented (i.e., written) bias.  Like anyone writes down that they're doing things they know are wrong for political bias reasons.

    He also said that witnesses were unresponsive to the questions - they didn't answer, or declined to be interviewed.

    That's not the same as saying the FBI was unbiased.

    I'm waiting for the Durham report.  He can subpoena witnesses and get them to talk.  Whether they admit anything or not, it will be more believable.

      Another key issue:  Horowitz's investigation was limited to people currently working for the department (which leaves out Strzok, Page, Comey, and others).  Durham can subpoena anybody.

    Admitting stuff is still not necessary or prudent in US politics.

    William DisBarr still insists that the FBI spied on the Trumpovsky campaign in 2016. DisBarr wants to keep this conspiracy theory alive to show that his boss did not collude with Russia.
