    Too many juicy things in the report, this thread addresses the one topic.


    A wide-ranging investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general (IG) found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) deliberately doctored evidence it presented to the nation’s top spy court in order to gain authority to spy on a key Trump affiliate.

    The 476-page report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the FBI falsely claimed to the FISA Court not only that Carter Page was a Russian agent, but also falsely claimed that an unnamed intelligence agency had told the FBI that Page was “not a source” in their efforts to surveil and curtail Russian intelligence efforts.

    Page, who had previously been an informant and witness for the United States in a federal espionage case against a Russian intelligence official was targeted by the Obama FBI as a Russian spy helping Putin to steal the election from Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    According to the IG report, before the FBI and DOJ went to the FISA Court to apply for a warrant to spy on Page, an unnamed U.S. intelligence agency had told the FBI that Carter Page had previously assisted that agency’s efforts against Russian spies. Although exculpatory information about potential spy targets is required in spy warrant applications, Obama’s FBI and DOJ deliberately withheld that information from the spy court in order to paint Page in the worst possible light.

    You're correct in that one minor document, which had no import to the overall FISA application or it's veracity, was changed. The rest of your headline title is yet another Russian lie.

    Obama’s FBI lies in our most sacred process of law enforcement. Your word games are just more Putin spin.

    From the opening post, looks like two things:

    "...Horowitz found that the FBI falsely claimed to the FISA Court not only that Carter Page was a Russian agent, but also falsely claimed that an unnamed intelligence agency had told the FBI that Page was “not a source” in their efforts to surveil and curtail Russian intelligence efforts."

    Two things

    The FBI is a rogue agency whose rules and protocols are meaningless.

    Scrap the FBI
