The FBI went corrupt and political when its case collapsed but it deceived the FISA court and went after Trump anyway

The FBI went corrupt and political when its case collapsed but it deceived the FISA court and went after Trump anyway, by Scott Johnson.

Attorney General William Barr sat for an extended interview with NBC’s Pete Williams to discuss the findings in the Department of Justice Inspector General [Horowitz] report released yesterday afternoon. …

Barr is familiar with the evidence gathered so far; he knows what he’s talking about. He understands that what we have staring us in the face is an unprecedented political scandal. …

I’m not even getting to Barr’s … reference to the Steele Dossier as “a complete sham” and “rubbish”. ….

Barr reiterates, by the way, that the campaign “was clearly spied upon” (at 12:15 of the interview).

Barr emphasizes: “Their case collapsed after the election and they never told the [FISA] court and they kept on getting renewals on these [FISA] applications… The question really is: what was the agenda after the election? They kept on pressing ahead after their case collapsed. This is the president of the United States [they continued to investigate].

UPDATE on the Horowitz Report:

The Democrats are using Soviet political tactics. Truth and unity are the biggest losers.
