The IG’s Russiagate Report has been published and is available
Two of the recommendations seem to point at who Durham will be starting with:
The Department’s Office of Professional
Responsibility should review our findings related
to the conduct of Department attorney Bruce Ohr
for any action it deems appropriate. Ohr’s
current supervisors in CRM should also review
our findings related to Ohr’s performance for any
action they deem appropriate.
The FBI should review the performance of all
employees who had responsibility for the
preparation, Woods review, or approval of the
FISA applications, as well as the managers,
supervisors, and senior officials in the chain of
command of the Carter Page investigation for
any action it deems appropriate.
The first recommendation is specific to Bruce Ohr.
The second one is for the Carter Page FISA team. Looks like those are the sacrificial lambs. Barr and Durham, go get ’em.
post script – Durham says he has more and better info than the IG:
Go get ’em Mr. Durham!
post post script
And Barr also says “not so fast!”
Go get ’em Mr. Barr.
Francey Hakes, a former assistant U.S. attorney weighs in on the seriousness and the likelihood that abuse of power was involved in the FISA warrants used against the Trump campaign figures. She has experience with the process having herself appeared before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court during her career, presenting applications for counterterrorism and counterespionage warrants on a special detail to the Department of Justice Office of Intelligence Policy and Review.
Take a look.
Attkisson was spied on by the Obama Justice Department because of her sources in the Intelligence community and she knows quite a bit about how and why. She points out that Flynn as the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under Obama knew what was going on and was supposed to clean up the FISA malfeasance. And that’s why he was targeted.
