Kimberley Strassel on IG report: Adam Schiff 'owes the country an enormous apology'

Strassel: IG report a triumph for Nunes, trouble for Schiff

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel said Tuesday that the release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s report on the origins of the Russia investigation and the issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants for a Trump campaign official was a triumph for House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and trouble for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

 

“The reason that we actually know about this FISA abuse is because in early February 2018, Nunes, who was heading the House Intelligence Committee, put out a memo with these explosive revelations that the FBI had targeted [former Trump campaign adviser] Carter Page with surveillance warrants that the dossier from a rival campaign had been the basis for that, and that the FBI had not been straight up with the FISA court," Strassel told “Fox & Friends”.

 

Strassel spoke out less than 24 hours after Monday's release of the 476-page report. She blamed Schiff for much of the partisan divide surrounding the FISA report.

 

“This should have provoked bipartisan outrage," she said. "Instead, Adam Schiff came out immediately and said, 'No, that’s a bunch of hooey.' And in fact he puts out his own memo and he says no, nobody abused anything.”

 

“So now we’ve got the IG report and Adam Schiff owes the country an enormous apology for spreading a false misinformation,” Strassel added.

 

The inspector general found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding either the launch of the Trump-Russia investigation or the efforts to seek the controversial FISA warrant to Page in the early stages of that probe.

 

However, the report revealed that there had been at least 17 "significant inaccuracies and omissions" in the Carter Page FISA applications.

“He [Horowitz] said he didn’t find any documentary evidence of bias,” Strassel said. “I mean, that’s basically saying he didn’t find an e-mail among FBI officials saying let’s take out Donald Trump.”

 

“And it’s not his job in the absence of that documentary evidence to guess at their motives," she added. "But instead what he did is he just laid out all of the facts and when you step back and you look at that fact pattern, I think it’s very hard for anyone to think that this wasn’t a deliberate attempt by the FBI to abuse its powers in aid of going after Donald Trump.”

 

Strassel also noted Tuesday that Schiff subpoenaed and released information that included Nunes’ phone records in connection with the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, calling it an “incredibly bad faith move.”

 

“This is, as far as I know, the first time you have the head of an intelligence committee, using the powers of Congress to spy on a fellow member,” Strassel said. “And if that’s the standard we’re going to have going forward, if you think politics is ugly now, watch where this goes.”

how dare they catch trump in yet another crime spree. sure he cheated all his life, and yes a judge ordered him to repay $25,000,000 to those he cheated in his trump u scam, and of course he was just nailed cheating his own charity and he and his monster brats are banned from ever sitting on the board of a charity for life, and yes he did beat the Russia rap by obstructing justice and he did get caught in the Ukraine shakedown, but we should give him the benefit of the doubt because of his sterling record. right?

bwahahahahahhahahahahahahhahaha

Yet Trump university got high marks from former students. Some saw value in the classes, others did not. No different than a gender studies major complaining they can't find a job outside of the food service industry.

right just like you give trump high marks for his trying to cheat in the2020 elections. sorry but a judge ruled it was a scam and trump was ordered to pay his victims $25,000,000. No doubt those former students who gave him high marks declined the money, eh?LOL

the ig said the fbi was justified in applying for a fisa warrant.

They were justified in starting an investigation. He didn't directly say anything about the FISA warrants but he did mention that there are criminal charges against an FBI lawyer that altered evidence showing Page was a CIA asset. The warrants were gotten under false pretenses.

I wouldn't. What the hell does that have to do with falsifying evidence submitted to a top secret foreign surveillance court to allow the surveillance of the Trump campaign? See the warrant allowed surveillance to all contacts Page made and those two removed from him. He may not have been in the campaign at the time the warrants were issued but he certainly maintained contacts with people inside. These warrants allowed monitoring of the campaign and led to selective leaks to the press.

the warrants allowed monitoring of the campaign only as he came into contact with them. trump lied when he implied the campaign was spied on.

why does he have to lie about everything. he is tearing apart our nation to save his own dirty asss.

to believe that a clown who betrayed all his wives, cheated at business, was ordered to repay $25 million to victims of one scam and$2 million for cheating his charity, a person who cheated all his life and just got caught terying to cheat again, is absurd.

you have to know he is fikty drty but don't care.

just admit the obvious.

stop the games admit the supreme law of the land doesn;t apply to him because he says so. just admit the truth stop with the fake " we love America" bullshit you fool onl;y yourselves in your saturated delusions

You misunderstand the scope of the warrants. They allowed monitoring of Page, anyone he contacted, and anyone those he contacted talked to. That would be the entire Trump campaign.
