(Liberty Bell) – On Wednesday morning, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Horowitz’s long-awaited FISA abuse report was released on Monday and after its release, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey blasted President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr.
He also took a very premature victory lap, apparently under the impression that the report exonerated him.
“So it was all lies. No treason. No spying on the campaign. No tapping Trumps wires. It was just good people trying to protect America,” Comey said in a Twitter caption linking to his Washington Post op-ed titled, “The Truth is Finally Out. The FBI Fulfilled Its Mission.”
On Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) opened up by asking why the FBI didn’t brief Trump or warn him that a few of his campaign volunteers had been suspected of working on behalf of a foreign country.
Graham asked IG Horowitz if his report vindicated Comey.
“Former FBI Director James Comey said this week that your report vindicates him. Is that a fair assessment of your report?” Graham asked.
“I think the activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this,” Horowitz replied.

The Gateway Pundit explains:
The DOJ IG report found 17 errors, 51 violations and 9 false statements all against Trump yet Horowitz concluded there was no political bias.
The report revealed that the FBI defrauded the FISA court and purposely omitted exculpatory information from the FISA judges in order to obtain FOUR FISA warrants on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Hopefully Barr and Durham can bring these criminals who attempted a coup to remove Trump from office to justice.
