Jeff Sessions Finds 'Stunning Development' Buried In IG Report

Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his long-awaited audit on the FISA Application report this week.
Appearing on Fox News to discuss the report, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined host Laura Ingraham to discuss Horowitz's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the findings into the reasoning for the FBI's spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
But Sessions said he made a "stunning revelation" buried deep in the 470-page report that most missed.
Sessions pointed out that Horowitz found that FBI officials had falsified documents for the special court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to obscure the fact that Trump campaign aide Carter Page had a history of working as “an operational contact” for another agency of the government.
Let's point that out again: top FBI officials falsified documents so they could obtain warrants to spy on members of Trump's 2016 campaign.
“I would say about that is that in my experience, as 15 years as a federal prosecutor, I’ve never seen anything like that,” Sessions told Ingraham.
“I think that’s a stunning development in the seriousness of a FISA warrant involving a presidential campaign,” he added.
“Stunning” barely begins to describe it.
Remember, this is the same FBI that was led by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page -- all notorious Never-Trumpers who began, oversaw, and made the biggest decisions in the Russia investigation against Trump.
Horowitz also testified on Wednesday about why the FBI never gave President Donald Trump a "defensive briefing" in early 2017 about their Russia investigation.
On September 20, 2017, Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray asking whether or not the bureau ever provided the Trump campaign with a defensive briefing regarding Russian interference in 2016.
On October 26, 2017, the FBI responded saying they did provide a counterintelligence defense briefing to then-candidate Trump and other campaign officials.
When asked Horowitz about this during the hearing on Wednesday -- Horowitz confirmed the FBI lied.
In another stunning example of bias, the FBI refused to tell the Trump campaign about their spying and when they met with him days after he took office, they continued spying on him and gathering intelligence against his campaign.
