FBI official investigated after allegedly altering Russian Federation probe document, sources say

According to the report, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz turned over evidence of the altered document to federal prosecutor John Durham.

The New York Times reported Friday that investigators for Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz made no finding of anti-Trump bias on the part of then-FBI Director James Comey and top officials Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe in ordering a wiretap on former Trump adviser Carter Page. Lindsey Graham, a loyal ally to Trump, said Horowitz is expected to appear before lawmakers to testify on December 11, The Post reported. "They tried to overthrow the presidency".

The FBI official, an attorney, is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document used in obtaining a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Page. The warrant, which was renewed several times and approved by different judges in 2016 and early 2017, has been one of the most contentious elements of the Russian Federation probe and was the subject of dueling memos a year ago issued by Democrats and Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.

The staffer, a former FBI lawyer, is now under criminal investigation, according to CNN. "They have been falsifying documents and providing false testimony in the... courts of law for years now", he told FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo during an exclusive interview. "There has been a continued cover-up to this day". Wray said he would not describe the FBI's surveillance as "spying" if it's following "investigative policies and procedures". "Personally, I think it goes all the way". Other sources say Horowitz's report may also shed light as to why US attorney John Durham chose to open a criminal investigation into possible FBI misconduct. "The first butts she booted this morning were Republicans who insist on floating freaky conspiracy theories about the 2016 election", he said, and she testified that U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland was engaged in a "domestic political errand" for Trump in Ukraine. I think it's a disgrace. He will also sharply criticize as careless one of the F.B.I. case agents in NY handling the matter, they said.
