An FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation for allegedly altering a document that was central to the FBI’s surveillance of a Trump campaign official in 2016, according to a new report from CNN.
“The finding is expected to be part of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of the FBI’s effort to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide,” CNN reported. “Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.”

The allegations are reportedly being levied by the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who is releasing a report on December 9 reviewing the FBI’s actions during the Russia investigation.
The allegedly altered document is associated with the court-approved surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, sources told The Washington Post.
The news of the allegation comes amid the public impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump.
It is unclear which document was allegedly altered by the FBI lawyer, nor what changes were made, nor what impact the document had on the Russia investigation. More

Wouldn’t then anything and everything that subsequently happened based on that illegal event then become the fruit of the poisonous tree and be inadmissible in court?
These reports and the promised indictments are always just around the corner. I’ll believe it after the reports are released and named individuals are actually indicted.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
