Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham announced this week that he will hold a hearing on Dec. 11 featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The IG report is expected out before the hearing on Wednesday December 11th.
And the deep state leakers are already at work informing their comrades in the liberal fake news media.
CNN reported today that one FBI official is under criminal investigation for altering surveillance documents on Carter Page.
This likely includes the FISA Court documents that allowed the Obama-Comey deep state to spy on candidate Trump and his family and campaign.
Attorney Sidney Powell weighed in.
According to CNN, one FBI official has already admitted to making the changes to the documentation.
An FBI official is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, several people briefed on the matter told CNN.
The possibility of a substantive change to an investigative document is likely to fuel accusations from President Donald Trump and his allies that the FBI committed wrongdoing in its investigation of connections between Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.
The finding is expected to be part of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of the FBI’s effort to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide. Horowitz will release the report next month.
Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.
It’s unknown how significant a role the altered document played in the FBI’s investigation of Page and whether the FISA warrant would have been approved without the document. The alterations were significant enough to have shifted the document’s meaning and came up during a part of Horowitz’s FISA review where details were classified, according to the sources.
