are you under the impression that this is coincidental?

it's of course on purpose because of how bad this week has been for trump, and the fact that everything was so vague means it's also something trivial

Even if it's trivial, the GOP will elevate it so that it appears as equally outrageous as the impeachment testimony.

Anyone who was following this already knew but the thick irony of this whole ordeal is that despite Trump CONSTANTLY whining about FBI-bias the only actual evidence that something inconsistent with DOJ policy was done was because of NYC field office pro-Trump bias.

It’s so freaking bizarre that the FBI Director, the DOJ IG and Democrats in Congress just don’t seem to care.

"The Justice Department’s internal watchdog is expected to find in a forthcoming report that political bias did not taint top officials running the FBI investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign in 2016, while at the same time criticizing the bureau for systemic failures in its handling of surveillance applications, according to two U.S. officials.

The report due out Dec. 9 from Inspector General Michael Horowitz will allege that a low-level FBI lawyer inappropriately altered a document that was used as part of a controversial application for electronic surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser, the officials said. The inspector general referred that finding to U.S. Attorney John Durham, so that he may investigate it as a possible crime, they said.

But Horowitz will conclude that the application still had a proper legal and factual basis, according to the officials, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive report.

In broad terms, the report refutes accusations of a political conspiracy by senior law enforcement officials against the Trump campaign to favor Democrat Hillary Clinton, while also knocking the bureau for procedural shortcomings, said the officials. On balance, they said, it provides a mixed assessment of the bureau and department’s undertaking of a probe that became highly politicized and divided the nation."


Quote :
"The inspector general report, the officials said, is divided into three parts. One focuses on the opening of the Crossfire Hurricane probe of Papadopoulos. Another reviews the surveillance order on Page. A third assesses the bureau’s handling of Steele and his information."


Quote :
"According to the two officials, Horowitz is expected to conclude that opening of Crossfire Hurricane was legally and factually justified. "


Quote :
"The inspector general also is expected to find that the application and subsequent renewals to monitor Page’s communications was proper and observed relevant guidelines, the officials said."


Quote :
"But there was an issue with a low-level FBI lawyer who altered an email to the Justice Department as part of the process for renewing the FISA warrant, which expires after 90 days. One of the attorneys in the National Security Division, which handles wiretap applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), asked the lawyer if he could document a certain claim, the officials said. He misled them when he said he could and, to cover his tracks, he altered the email, the officials said. The serious error in judgment led to his removal from the bureau, and his case has been referred for criminal investigation, officials said.

There are other individuals whose conduct is criticized, including a low-level agent, but the lawyer’s case is the most significant, they said.

Nonetheless, in looking closely at the Page surveillance application, the inspector general has identified a number of problems in the bureau’s process for handling FISA applications, including in how it forwards material to the National Security Division for review, the officials said.

Horowitz will recommend reforms, such as strengthening the internal oversight process."

It’s kind of funny anyone seriously entertains the idea comey was out to get trump when the handling of the Clinton email investigation was so obviously biased against her... we literally heard barely anything about the investigations into trump from official channels. The times even reported the opposite which I personally took as gospel at the time.

Trump has proven once again that if you just keep repeating something no matter how absurd enough people will start to believe it.

Any guesses as to what our common enemy is that we have in the Middle East?

https://twitter.com/rgoodlaw/status/1266473641459531782

My best guess would be Islamic terrorism.

"U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton, according to Law & Crime's Matt Naham, has ordered the U.S. Department of Justice to answer questions "regarding certain redactions of the Mueller Report" at a hearing now set for July 20. In the past, Walton has been critical of Attorney General William Barr's response to the Mueller Report, asserting that Barr, in 2019, "distorted" the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller. And now that Walton has read the Mueller Report in unredacted form, he is more concerned than ever about Barr's response to it."
