While impeachment hearings continue, the Trump DOJ OIG just cleared the conspiracy of the Russia investigation origins.
Yes, mistakes were made, but no conspiracy against Trump.
Again: NO CONSPIRACY AGAINST TRUMP
It’s important to note criticisms:
“neither the AG Guidelines nor the DIOG contain a provision requiring Department consultation before opening an
investigation such as the one here involving the alleged
conduct of individuals associated with a major party
LEGITIMATE INVESTIGATION – “FBI had an authorized purpose when it opened Crossfire Hurricane to obtain information about, or protect against, a national security threat or federal crime, even though the
investigation also had the potential to impact constitutionally protected activity.”
LISA PAGE IS CLEARED! “while Lisa Page attended some of the discussions regarding the opening of the investigations, she did not play a role in the decision to open Crossfire Hurricane or the four individual cases.”
PETER STRZOK IS CLEARED! “We further found that while Strzok was directly involved in the decisions to open Crossfire Hurricane and the four individual cases, he was not the sole, or even the highest-level, decision maker as to any of those matters.”
NOT an anti-Trump investigation
“We concluded that Priestap’s exercise of discretion in opening the investigation was in compliance with Department and FBI policies, and we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias
or improper motivation influenced his decision.”
Carter Page in real trouble.
“We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations.”
