Justice Department Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz debunked on Wednesday former FBI Director James Comey’s suggestion this week that the IG’s report exonerated the FBI from misconduct allegations over its surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
Following the release of the IG report this week, Comey wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post and tweeted a link to it, writing on Twitter: “So it was all lies. No treason. No spying on the campaign. No tapping Trumps wires. It was just good people trying to protect America.”
In the op-ed, Comey claimed that “the allegation of a criminal conspiracy was nonsense. There was no illegal wiretapping, there were no informants inserted into the campaign, there was no ‘spying’ on the Trump campaign.”
Horowitz responded: “I think the activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this FISA.”
Horowitz's response to Graham's questions clearly shows that he was not happy with the PR tour disgraced former FBI Director James Comey took in order to change public perception of his negligence.
