I think the 11th will be the start of a bigger day. That is when testimony regarding that report will begin.

Specifically, the report concluded that investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding efforts to seek a highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the Russia investigation -- but faulted the FBI over numerous "omissions" and "inaccuracies" in the application process.

Yup. They are literally using incompetence as an excuse. So they either need to be gutted (preferably shut down and erased from the budget) for their incompetence, or this is BS and they need to be gutted for abusing power to reach a political agenda.

Just like they did with Hillary. We were supposed to believe that a former First Lady, Senator and Head of State was so stupid that she didn't realize using a secret server with horrible security measures to store classified data was okay. Yet, she would have made a great President.

Keep in mind that the IG's job here is only to report findings. Not suggest prosecution or report crimes. Now, i do think the "conclusion" is BS.

So the FBI knew Carter Page was working for the CIA, but did to tell the FISA court.


All I know at this point is something i've known for many years. If the FBI knocked on my door and said "hey the sun rises in the East", i'd go get a compass and call my lawyer.

Don't worry. The new spin is gearing up and it is that the FBI had a duty and responsibility to lie and abuse it's powers to start the investigation.

So the guy tasked with finding out if Carter Page was working with the CIA was told via email that he was, then altered the email to say that no he wasn't.

Apparently he is being referred for criminal prosecution. Maybe stuff will start to happen.

So the FBI knew that Steele and his dossier wasn't credible before they cut him as an informant, but didn't tell anyone. They didn't cut him as a source until they found out he was talking to the media, then STILL used it as a basis for the investigation.

No bias here people. LOL.

Where are the little shoe shiners here who supported all of this Stalinist BS?

The headline was made up before it was even released “no bias, just a few mistakes”. It’s apparent the IG is too much of a swamper to say what he truly knows but I think he said a few things today in the hearing that are telling of his take even though he won’t flat out say it cause he wants to stay out of it. His job wasn’t to truly investigate but basically to write a transcript of the people interviewed. There was no bias because nobody he talked to admitted it. It’s apparent there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes than we know by Barr’s reaction and remarks.

Barr is a swamper as well but he’s been around and he knows how it works. It’s going to take a while before we see anything happen to at least a few of the people who need to hang for treason. He knows he has one shot to get it right and it has to be perfect or it’s over and they all cry fowl and then he’s a dead man. But, on the other hand I’m not gonna hold my breathe that anything serious happens to those who should be in chains.

You know what I found ironic and down right sad during this hearing? This whole thing started over allegations of the Trump campaign colluding with a foreign nation to win an election, meanwhile, Horowitz admitted several times that the Hillary campaign colluded with a foreign agent to win an election.

So in other words, the FBI used evidence they knew was gathered by a campaign through collusion with a foreign entity, to justify an investigation into wether or not a different campaign was colluding with a foreign entity...
The irony is overwhelming.

I think most sane people have now figured out that when a politician accuses someone of something they are actually the one guilty of the crime. Politicians know that near 50% of our legal citizens are too dumb to know the difference or just don't care. Notice that I haven't taken sides here.

True, but the politicians aren't the real people we should be worried about here.

The most powerful law enforcement agency in the world hid exculpatory evidence from a secret court in order to begin and continue surveillance on American citizens. Not only that, but the FBI and, more specifically, some of the main actors in this case have a history of it.

There are multiple things here that should make every American go "wait a minute".

I've had auto complete on my phone do the same thing sending a text. Something I basically said out loud that I would text someone about, after the first word I entered every needed word to complete the though showed up in each predictive text row. I just shake my head now.

I remember when that came out over wikileaks that the U.S. was actively using flat screen/smart TV's listen in on and spy. Even if you have not volunteered to own an Alexa wiretap...they still can get ya through the TV.
