IG: Report Offers No Vindication for James Comey

 

GRAHAM: “Thank you very much. And again to your team, thank you for the service you’ve done for the country here. The FBI or former FBI Director James Comey said this week that — that your report vindicates him. Is that a fair assessment of your report?”

HOROWITZ: “You know, I think the activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this.”

GRAHAM: “Let’s run a clip here. This is what Comey said in 2018. It would be nice to have sound. Do we have sound? Never mind. I’ll read it. Director Comey — the reporter is asking him, can I ask you a question on FISA abuse? It’s a major issue for the Republicans. Do you have a total confidence in the dossier when you used it to secure surveillance warrant and also in the subsequent renewals? This was asked in December of 2018 — about a year ago. Comey: ‘I have total confidence that the FISA process was followed, that the entire case was handled in a thoughtful responsible way by DOJ and the FBI. I think the notion that FISA was abused here is nonsense.’ Would it be fair to say that you take issue with that statement?”

HOROWITZ: “Certainly our findings were that there were significant problems.” [crosstalk]

GRAHAM: “So when Comey speaks about FISA, you shouldn’t listen. You should listen to Mr. Horowitz. He’s not vindicated. And to be concerned about the FISA warrant process is not nonsense. Christopher Steele — is it fair to say that he had a political bias against Donald Trump?”

HOROWITZ: “Given who he was paid for, there was a bias that needed to be disclosed to the court.”
