Horowitz Report Will Be Damning, Criminal Referrals Likely

Authored by Sara Carter via SaraACarter.com,

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s much anticipated report on his investigation into the FBI’s probe into President Trump’s campaign is expected to be made public before Thanksgiving and the outcome is alleged to contain several criminal referrals, according to sources who spoke with SaraACarter.com.

Horowitz’s investigation on the bureau’s probe into the now debunked theory that Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election will more than likely result in the declassification of documents – requested by senior Republican lawmakers for more than several years. These are the same documents President Trump turned over to Attorney General William Barr in May,  giving him ‘full and complete authority” to declassify.

Those documents will contain several classified pages of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page, exculpatory evidence that was withheld from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the so-called ‘Gang of Eight’ folder (which contained exculpatory information), as well as the email chain between FBI investigators in the Russia probe and then-FBI Director James Comey. Those emails also include discussions with lawyers in the DOJ’s national security division. As previously reported, the email chains will contain information that prove the FBI knew prior to obtaining a warrant to spy on Page that former British spy Christopher Steele’s information in his infamous dossier on Trump could not be proven.

It is also expected to reveal that the FBI knew that Steele was leaking to the media but then used those media reports are separate evidence in their request for a FISA warrant, known as circular intelligence reporting. Circular reporting is when a law enforcement official uses false confirmation by making a piece of information appear to come from multiple independent sources.

Horowitz’s report is also going to contain evidence that the FBI handled Hillary Clinton’s campaign differently than that of President Trump’s campaign. It will reveal that she had received a detailed debriefing from the FBI on foreign attempts to make contact with her campaign. It will reveal the deep bias and animus those FBI officials had toward the Trump campaign.

It is the most highly anticipated Horowitz report during the Trump administration’s tenure. Why? Because for more than three years the American people have not had closure or resolution to what exactly warranted the FBI investigation to spy on a presidential campaign, or for that matter on the President.

It will also weaken House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s current impeachment probe into Trump, as it will prove that his previous statements in support of the FBI’s FISA into Page was based solely on his biased against Trump. This bias, say Republican officials, continues with his push to impeach the President.

“If it’s strong and comes out soon, the IG report will do some real damage to the Democrats’ impeachment charade. It would show that Resistance bureaucrats really are conspiring to take down Trump,” said a House Republican source.

“It would also fatally undermine the credibility of Schiff, who argued vehemently that there were no FISA abuses—it will mean that, as Intel Committee Chairman, he’s ignoring severe abuses for purely political purposes.”

Those political purposes lead to the most important question lingering in Horowitz’s investigation:

Did senior officials within the FBI and U.S. intelligence apparatus weaponize the system for political purposes against a candidate for the presidency and did they continue to do so after Trump had been elected?

Unlike Horowitz’s other reports, this investigation, which focuses on the machinations of the FBI’s initial beginnings of the probe, is sure to bring with it a wave of new information that the public may not be aware of and the bureau’s connections to the intelligence communities role in its initial investigation.

The players: former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, former Special Agent Peter Strzok, along with Strzok’s paramour FBI lawyer Lisa Page, are among some of the cast of characters in Horowitz’s report. Others, like former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and DOJ official Bruce Ohr may also play a part in his investigation. However, Horowitz has been careful not to let anything leak – not even the day he plans to release the report, which we now know was completed in mid-September and being reviewed for classification purposes with the FBI and DOJ.

Here’s what to expect: According to several sources the report will be ‘damning’ and will allegedly contain criminal referrals on former FBI officials. The report will apparently have at least two criminal referrals, said two sources, with knowledge. One of those criminal referrals is expected to be Comey. However, the Inspector General’s office has not been

Those referrals allegedly will be made based on information and evidence obtained by the Inspector General and may very well have been the reason Justice Department Attorney General William Barr and Connecticut prosecutor John Durham opened a criminal probe into the FBI’s investigation into the President.

Some information has already been made public. In a recent interview with Fox New’s Martha McCallum Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has spoken with Barr, said “I think his report is going to be stunning. I think it is going to be damning. I think it’s going to prove that the system got off the rails and we need corrective action.”

As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham, told McCallum his committee will be examining the FBI’s use of a FISA warrant on Page, alongside the current investigation being conducted separately by Durham.

He must.

The question as to what extent the senior intelligence and federal law enforcement officials weaponized the most trusted institutions in our nation should be answered and made public for the American people.

If senior government officials broke the law and abused the system then they must be held accountable and there should never be any question of a two-tiered justice system in our nation.

  1. “Did senior officials within the FBI and U.S. intelligence apparatus weaponize the system for political purposes against a candidate for the presidency and did they continue to do so after Trump had been elected?”

    Yes, Yes, and Yes! Just like Obama weaponized the IRS against Conservative groups, he used the Courts to help his spying, or should I say to support his “insurance policy”. That’s why Hilary can’t get over the loss. She was told she HAD it in the bag because of this insurance policy.

    When this comes out, it better not lead to a dead end. Senior officials in the FBI and CIA need to be held responsible, along with Obama, Clinton, Kerry, Biden, Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, and the list keeps going. Gee, what a Wonderful thought. Gitmo filled up with these treasonous pathetic cowards.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

        More tax dollars wasted in 2014. Oh just a piddling half mil.

        “In 2014, the U.S. spent nearly half a million dollars in American taxpayer funds in support of an investigation into corrupt activities linked to Burisma owner Zlochevsky, Kent testified behind closed doors on October 15.”

        Attempting to recover frozen assets for Ukraine’s behalf in 2014?

        “The pervasive and long-standing problem of corruption in Ukraine included exposure to a situation involving the energy company Burisma. The primary concern with the U.S. governments since 2014 was Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, whose frozen assets abroad we had attempted to recover on Ukraine’s behalf,” Kent told lawmakers Wednesday.

        Wonder where those frozen assets went once VP Biden had the investigation squashed?

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • Hey Karen….Great post !! Please keep it coming ! My hope is that when the truth comes out what remains of the swamp, corrupt media reporters and a whole mass of gullible democrat voters will have a major meltdown ! Then the government can get moving again without the weight of all these corrupt liberals dragging us down !! …jab

  2. Much more to come as I did not see Obama, Hillary or Bidens name listed and I doubt seriously these individuals acted with out their knowledge.7AW5

    “They’re in the majority. And people say, OK, what have you done with it to help improve my life? And things like lowering the cost of prescription drugs could be law today, except that they are obsessed with impeachment. Our troops aren’t getting the tools they need right now, Laura, because Pelosi is obsessed with impeachment. Our border is not secure because Pelosi is obsessed with impeachment.”

    Their “quid pro quo” thru the Obama/Bush State Department in their Globalist NWO never dealt with what was good for US, but for their personal foreign handlers. Shame with the help of Paul Ryan, the rino in chief back then, Republicans lost the House.

    More wasted time. More taxpayer money being wasted. No national security so the continued kaos. More extortion, treasonous acts being shoved under a rug. But just think, none of this would have come out if it wasn’t for the Strong American moral character of President Trump.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  4. https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/11/13/pelosi-sad-that-trump-doesnt-understand-he-isnt-above-the-law/

    “Pelosi said, “We are defenders of our democracy. So, I’m very prayerful, thoughtful, and actually sad today that our country has to come to a place where the president doesn’t understand that Article II does not say that he can do whatever he wants, that he is not above the law, and that he will be held accountable.”

    Oh Nancy, had a HUGE laugh over you stating you are being defenders of Our democracy. Only thing you are sad about today is that your “coup” is not working and you will be held accountable for it. Especially when Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report comes out and your involvement in it with your buddy Hilary and Obama.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • The A-HA is on YOU Karen and all the rest – including Clintons and the list of her gullibables…this is NOT A DEMOCRACY – – IT IS A REPUBLIC and if you don’t KNOW the DIFFERENCE – – well, THAT is why we’re in such trouble brought on by the liberals…hahahahahaha – YOU after all are the ones destroying this country!!!

      • Well Cath, seems comprehension isn’t your strong suit. Public school education? lol Laughs on you. BTW, tell your Rino friends they don’t know what a republic is either.

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  5. As a registered Democrat until,the Primary where I will vote against Warren, Sanders, Biden, And especially the hypocrite Micheal Bloomberg, who is against all guns, unless they are the ones he is surrounded with to protect him! I’ll vote for Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang. Sad they get no real support from the media! We do t need Socialism sliding into communism!

  6. This has taken far too long! Brennan and Clapper, and others are guilty as hell and need to be held accountable!
    This better not be just another whitewash of these crooked democrats.
    Republicans need to stick together and support POTUS Trump.

  7. I think heads will roll over these Treasonous acts by these players, but to say we cannot have a two tiered justice system in this country is ridiculous, We DO HAVE a two tiered justice system. One tier is White, the other Tier is Black.

  8. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/13/republicans-stunned-after-adam-schiff-interrupts-impeachment-hearing/

    “House Oversight Chairman Adam Schiff interrupted House Republicans’ questions of Ambassador Bill Taylor on Wednesday, a stunning breach of Congressional order.”

    “Rep. John Ratcliffe protested Schiff’s sudden rule change after Democrats spent the first portion of the hearing with leading questions and hearsay.

    “I sat here through the first 45 minutes and literally had an objection to almost the foundation of almost every question that Mr. Goldman asked regarding facts not in evidence, leading,” he fired back at Schiff.”

    Changing the rules but letting the fake “pee dossier” lawyer (goldman), who moved to Fake news (MSNBC), keep going.

    Typical Democratic ploy. Not working though Schiff. More American taxpayers “connecting the dots”.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA

  9. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/13/democrats-schedule-two-more-closed-door-impeachment-depositions/

    Wow,

    “Intelligence Committee has scheduled two more closed door depositions for witnesses.

    On Friday, David Holmes, an official who works at the US embassy in Ukraine is scheduled for a deposition. On Saturday, the committee asked OMB official Mark Sandy for a deposition.”

    Working on a Saturday? Heck we can’t even get them to work for Taxpaying American citizens PERIOD.

    “Holmes is an AIDE to Bill Taylor, who just testified to a conversation an unnamed aide overheard between Sondland and Trump”

    Oh well, The Clown Show continues. Rules change, special closed door meetings because rehearsals are needed to stay on Schiff’s talking points.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  10. Horowitz is a creature of the Swamp. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if anything finally comes from the IG report. All the “criminal referral”talk is great for fund raising and click bait, but any actual action against the Swamp would be totally out of character for these establishment types.

  11. I am an ex-Democrat who is ashamed to admit I used to be a Democrat! When did the Democratic party become filled with useless trouble-makers? The wasted dollars for all this crap – and the wasted time. Think what Congress could be accomplishing for the American taxpayers who elected them if the Democrats were actually working for us instead of trying to cause trouble!

  12. all the name being mention in the IG report all of them will take a very long vacation
    and all of them will enjoy that long vacation ever for siding with the lunatic democrats.

  13. I am hoping that the Democrats, especially Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, Hillary Clinton, Obama, Comey, the crooked FBI agents, Brennan, Clapper, and several others and any Rhino involved gets charged with treason. It is a very serious matter to try to overthrow our government. We are a Republic which the Democrats have been trying to destroy. The Democrats and Rhinos want a SOCIALIST COUNTRY with them as dictators. The Democrats and Rhinos have shown that they are for themselves, therefore, their salaries for the past three years should be returned to the taxpayers. They haven’t earned that money.

    • Agree 100% on Democrats and Rinos salaries should be returned to the Taxpayers. Plus those in the State Department (Kerry/Clinton), FBI (Mueller, Comey), CIA (Brennan, Clapper) should be returned.

      You know what, let them ALL show their tax returns, especially those off shore accounts, that possibly connected to relatives (Hunter and Devon) and follow THAT money trail. You want to talk about extortion. WE THE PEOPLE have been robbed blind, culminating debt (Obama doubled the debt).

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  14. I will be so glad when these reports are finally out, so the lemmings can see for themselves just how stupid they have been to trust a demonrat. It’s OK to have feelings for unfortunates, or want some social adjustments to society; but to side with evil to get it is not the right way. We are a Republic, not a Democracy. Push your agenda, but resign it to a vote.
    These deep state department actors and unelected officials, and their demon overlords who work around the people should be crucified to the fullest extent of our laws.
