Investigating The Investigators: Former FBI Lawyer Accused of Altering Document to Obtain FISA
Now more then ever we need your help keeping this channel producing REAL content for REAL people
Justice Department officials are saying that a lawyer for the FBI altered a key document that was then used in the application for a FISA warrant to initiate surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign.
DOJ Inspector General David Horowitz is expected to release his report on FISA warrant abuses by the Obama administration on December 9. No doubt, this incident will figure prominently in that report.
Interestingly, the Washington Post originally reported that the lawyer worked for Peter Strzok, the FBI's disgraced former head of counterintelligence and notorious anti-Trump investigator who, along with his mistress Lisa Page, played a key role in the bureau's Russian collusion investigation.
According to Fox News, the Post later dropped references to Strzok.
The Post, hours after publishing its story, conspicuously removed the portion of its reporting that the FBI employee involved was underneath Peter Strzok, the FBI's since-fired head of counterintelligence. The Post did not offer an explanation for the change, which occurred shortly after midnight. Earlier this week, the DOJ highlighted a slew of anti-Trump text messages sent by Strzok when he was leading the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the probe into the Trump campaign.
While the exact nature of the alteration isn't known, PJ Media reported earlier that U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said, "If there was an FBI agent, who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, who can be proven to have altered a document in connection to a legal proceeding including the attaining of a FISA warrant, that's really serious. It doesn't get much more serious than that."
