An unnamed, former FBI attorney is under criminal investigation for allegedly altering a document related to the 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The Horowitz report will not be released until December 9th but the draft report shows a low level, FBI lawyer was forced out of the FBI because he “erroneously indicated he had documentation to back up a claim he had made in discussions with the Justice Department about the factual basis for the application. He then altered an email to back up that erroneous claim, they said.
“That conduct did not alter Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had a proper legal and factual basis, the officials said.”The Washington Post:
Horowitz will testify before the Senate on December 11, 2019.
