    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowowitz released a report today on FBI practices in making Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications to the FISA court. If the entire country were not focused (understandably) on the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, this would dominating the news.

    U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Russia-Trump collusion probe, disagreed with a few aspects of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report released today. “Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” said Durham.

    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on the origins of the Russia investigation, which is likely to please both sides of the political spectrum.

    Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will release his report next month on the ways the FBI received warrants using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) on Carter Page [featured image], who served as an aide for then-candidate Donald Trump.
