Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz arrives for a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Inspector General's report on alleged abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Dec. 11, 2019, on Capitol Hill.
WASHINGTON - The release of a long-awaited report on the FBI's investigation of President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign has exposed deep fissures within the administration over the origins of the probe, pitting Trump and Attorney General William Barr against FBI Director Christopher Wray and the Justice Department's watchdog.
The 417-page report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that while the FBI legitimately opened the probe of suspected ties between the Trump campaign and Russia with no political animus toward Trump, some of its lower-level investigators made numerous mistakes during the surveillance of a former campaign aide.
Although intended to get to the bottom of a politically divisive investigation that has consumed much of Trump's presidency, the IG's findings did little to alter Trump's long-held view that the FBI was out to get him.
