Not So Fast: U.S. Attorney John Durham Issues Statement on IG Report – “We Do Not Agree With Some of the Report’s Conclusions”

U.S. attorney John Durham, a man with a reputation for exposing corruption wherever he finds it, has been conducting a broad investigation of the intelligence community’s misfeasance in using its deeply invasive tactics in an attempt to destroy the Trump presidency.

Whereas Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz is only authorized to investigate wrongdoing at the DOJ and the FBI, Durham has a much broader overview of how other entities within the intelligence community conspired together with the FBI with the help of operatives at the DOJ.

When IG Horowitz reverted to his usual whitewashing of evidence of illegal surveillance, the normally silent Durham decided he couldn’t allow Horowitz to define the depth of the corruption that exists.  

Durham issues this statement today:

“I think spying did occur.  Yes, I think spying did occur.

“The question is whether it was adequately predicated.  I’m not suggesting it wasn’t adequately predicated, but I need to explore that.

“I think it is my obligation.”

Based on the evidence collected to date… we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusion as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”
