The long-awaited report released Monday by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz includes the conclusion that FBI attorneys submitted incomplete or inaccurate information on documents that affected court approval for surveillance of the Donald Trump presidential campaign.
In particular, the report noted, the first campaign-related warrant application to the special court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act was riddled with assertions that were “inaccurate, incomplete, or unsupported by appropriate documentation, based upon information the FBI had in its possession at the time the application was filed.”
That bad or incomplete information was included in the first documents filed with the FISA court in October 2016, then included in subsequent applications without being corrected, according to the 500-page report (page viii)
The warrants were being sought for surveillance on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page — who was painted as being a Russian agent but to this day never been charged with any wrongdoing.
