DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz shot down Comey’s claim that the IG report on FISA abuses vindicates the former FBI director.
“I think the activities don’t vindicate anybody who touched this,” Horowitz told Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham while testifying this morning.
Graham: “The former FBI director James @Comey said this week that your report vindicates him. Is that a fair assessment of your report?”
Horowitz: “The activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this.”

Lindsey Graham then read a series of statements from Comey, in which the former FBI director called the notion that the FISA process was “abused” nonsense before asking Horowitz if he takes “issue” with Comey’s claim.
The IG answered that his investigation uncovered “significant problems.”
“So when Comey speaks about FISA, you shouldn’t listen,” Lindsey Graham added. “You should listen to Mr. Horowitz. He’s not vindicated. And to be concerned about the FISA warrant process is not nonsense.”
During his opening statement Wednesday, Lindsey Graham said he hoped Carter Page “sues the hell” out of the Justice Department.
If you missed Graham’s opening remarks you missed part of American history.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz twisted himself into a pretzel to avoid answering 99% of questions asked. He’s either been threatened, or he’s just a hack. Both conclusions work for me.

And the beat goes on. Horowitz hedges. This is folly. Lindsey is asking great questions. Simple answers required. Hedging given in response. DC theatre on display. Its just a Broadway play. The actors change but the plot is the same. No progress all bullshit. DO something
