Sean Hannity of Fox News dropped a bomb, claiming that a source told him that the Department of Justice has reached a conclusion in an investigation into potential FISA abuses. According to him the results are “devastating.”
“I have sources telling me that [Michael] Horowitz perhaps is even finished with his report and certainly, [Attorney General William Barr] has been briefed on what is coming,” the Fox News host said. He also noted that that he believes there were three FISA warrants issued for former Trump campaign aide Carter Page that were illegal.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Hannity issued the declaration twice on his Wednesday night show, according to the Washington Examiner. He raised the assertion for the second time when he was conducting an interview with South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is also chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Graham and his committee are in the midst of their own FISA investigation, and he told Hannity that he could not confirm or deny reports that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is poised to release his findings but said he believes those findings will be extremely consequential.
Attorney General William Barr recently stated that he expects the IG’s report on his desk in late May or early June. Former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, whose dirty dossier apparently prompted the FBI to begin spying on the Trump campaign, has reportedly refused to meet with Horowitz
Hannity isn’t the only member of Fox News speaking out about the potential FISA abuses. Gregg Jarrett stated that Inspector General Horowitz has the ability to prosecute anyone who he thinks may have abused or violated FISA laws.
The Daily Caller continues:
Jarrett continued that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is investigating why the Russia investigation was mandated on behalf of Barr, could “subpoena people to haul them in front of a grand jury. I suspect there is a grand jury and they’re well on their way to potential criminal indictments.”
Jarrett speculated that a number of former FBI officials are “likely” facing potential prosecution, including former Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former top lawyer James Baker and former special agent Peter Strzok.
Trey Gowdy also doubled down on key members of the intelligence agencies on Monday telling congressional investigators to look into Comey’s and Brennan’s emails from December of 2016.
“So whoever’s investigating this, tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December 2016,” Gowdy said to Sean Hannity of Fox News, referring to unhinged former CIA Director John Brennan and fired FBI Director James Comey.
Although Gowdy did not say exactly what was in these emails, the fact that he is coming forward and mentioning them speaks volumes. Gowdy also mentioned that the FBI say the author of the infamous Russia dossier, Christopher Steele, as an unreliable source.
“I think you’ll be surprised at whether or not they viewed Steele as being credible,” Gowdy also noted.
