Peter Van Buren discusses the details of the Horowitz Report and gives a retrospective of the whole Russia conspiracy investigation into President Trump. Van Buren stresses that the Steele dossier—opposition research paid for by the democrats—was the only evidence presented by the FBI to the FISA courts in order to get warrants to surveil Carter Page. The FBI knew the research was questionable at the very least, but did not disclose that fact, and also misled the courts into thinking that their was corroborating evidence, which in reality was also based on the Steele dossier. And worst of all, the FBI knew Carter Page was actually working with the CIA, but didn’t disclose that either. Van Buren thinks it comical that Horowitz found 17 cases of FBI “mistakes”, all of which favored their agency to the detriment of Trump, but still concluded no political bias.
