BREAKING: Damning FISA Report Goes Public, AG Barr Delivers Blistering Response

On Monday, the Department of Justice's Inspector General Michael Horowitz released the FISA Application report, detailing the reasoning for the FBI's spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

"The Department of Justice (Department) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) undertook this review to examine certain actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department during an FBI investigation opened on July 31, 2016, known as "Crossfire Hurricane," into whether individuals associated with the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign were coordinating, wittingly or unwittingly, with the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election," the report starts.

For reasons unknown, the inspector general claims that the start of the investigation was justified, however he also admits that their was extreme bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. This kind of lax vetting would have never been acceptable by Democrats if it was against someone like former President Barack Obama.

"We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions" to open investigations into four Trump campaign aides," the report says.

NBC News reports: "At the same time, the report found enough errors — and in at least one case, alleged document tampering by a low-level FBI lawyer — to provide Trump and his allies grist to continue to claim that the investigation was tainted."

Republicans immediately took to Twitter to comment on the release of the report.

"BREAKING: IG report officially released. It reveals FBI "fell far short" in vetting accuracy of FISA applications, knowingly withheld exculpatory information, used 'defensive briefings' to secretly asses the Trump campaign, used known illegitimate sources, and more," Rep, Mark Meadows tweeted.

Attorney General Bill Barr also released a statement, shredding the FBI for their reasoning on why they started the investigation in the first place.

“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken," Barr said.

He continued by defending President Trump: “It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz also chimed in, noting how the Crossfire Hurricane team purposely did not notify officials about information that "undercut" certain assertions in the original FISA application.

"FISA Abuse report shows unverified Steele dossier was a crucial component of getting a FISA surveillance authority to spy on Carter Page. The Crossfire Hurricane team FAILED to inform officials of SIGNIFICANT information that “undercut” assertions in the application," Gaetz tweeted.
