DOJ Announces “Broad” Review of Deep State Misconduct/ FISA Abuses
In a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the Department of Justice announced it would be conducting a “broad” and “multifaceted” review of potential Deep State misconduct and FISA abuses.
It will also be investigating the activities of several “non-governmental organizations and individuals.”
Fox News reports:
The information was contained in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who had inquired as to the scope of [U.S. attorney John] Durham’s investigation. The letter could indicate that the DOJ is looking closely at work done during the campaign by Fusion GPS, the firm retained by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC) to conduct opposition research against the Trump campaign.
Fusion GPS, in turn, hired British ex-spy Christopher Steele to produce an unverified and largely discredited dossier that the FBI went on to cite in secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court applications to surveil former Trump aide Carter Page.
Last week, sources assured Fox News that U.S. attorney John Durham–who was hired by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe–was “very dialed in” and “asking all the right questions.”
