>> We’ve got some breaking news we’re following right now where senior justice correspondent Perez is learning new information about the origins of the Russia probe and there’s somebody under investigation right now?
>> That’s right, Wolf. This is an investigation that began and found as part of the probe being done by Michael Horowitz, the inspector general for the Justice Department. What he found was there was an employee at the FBI who altered a document that was used in the preparation for one of the FISA warrants, surveillance warrants that was done against Carter Page, the Trump campaign aide. This document, whatever changes were made was substantive enough to change the meaning of the document. We don’t know a lot more about it. We don’t know without this change if FISA would have been approved or not but it is a substantial change made to this document. Michael Horowitz confronted this FBI employee during one of the interviews done as part of this review and that person admitted to making that change. Now, this is part of a criminal investigation being done by John Durham, the prosecutor in Connecticut who was appointed by Bill Barr, the Attorney general, to do a wide ranging review of everything used, all the intelligence gathered to begin what became the Mueller investigation. This is an altered document and a lot we don’t know about this employee and what the motivations were. It is a big deal to make a change to a document, alter it in any way.
>> FBI agents under investigation. Clearly, this will reverberate and provide ammunition to the president and his allies this whole Russia investigation was criminally wrong.
>> Exactly. This is exactly what people close to the president have been saying, the FBI committed wrongdoing in starting this investigation. The question now obviously is what are the details are going to be part of the Horowitz report released on December 9th and how much political hey the president’s allies will make of it.
