• Imminent Reports on Impeachment, FBI Spying on Trump: Is the End Anywhere in Sight?

    Surge Summary: The House Intelligence Committee impeachment report and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report involving FBI spying on the Trump campaign are slated to come out soon. Additionally, the House Judiciary Committee is poised to launch another round of hearings promptly. Hopefully, this will all wrap soon.

    The House Intelligence Committee is scheduled to meet this evening behind closed doors to approve Adam Schiff’s impeachment report, which will kick off another round of hearings starting tomorrow in the House Judiciary Committee.

    Meanwhile, liberal media outlets are reporting that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz allegedly determined that the FBI was initially justified in spying on the Trump campaign and that Attorney General William Barr rejects that finding.  The implication of these stories is that Horowitz has essentially cleared the FBI of wrong doing.

    We will find out for sure next week when the Horowitz report is released and when he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Chairman Lindsey Graham is dismissing the media speculation as “spin” meant to “diminish” and “downplay” its effect.

    But consider this:  The FBI spying began with a warrant against Carter Page.  Page was never charged with a crime.  We know that numerous senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department have been fired or forced out.  We also know that U.S. Attorney John Durham is now conducting a criminal investigation into the Deep State’s activities in 2016.

    In spite of the media’s spin, it’s clear that not everything was done by the book.  I hope Mr. Durham can conclude his investigation sooner rather than later.
