Justice Department IG Investigating Page FISA Request and FBI/DOJ Relation to MI6 Agent Steele

March 29, 2018 (EIRNS)—Justice Dept. Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced yesterday that he has opened an investigation into the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) surveillance applications regarding one-time Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, on what the Department of Justice and FBI knew about “former” MI6 agent Christopher Steele at that time, and on all their dealings with Steele as they relate to those FISA Court applications.

Horowitz said that he had begun the investigation in response to requests from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Members of Congress.

As EIR has reported, Horowitz is a straight shooter, whose investigation of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s actions with respect to the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Clinton Foundation, led to the release of the now-infamous SMS text messages between former Russiagate lead case agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, proclaiming their hatred of Donald Trump and the need for an “insurance policy” against his election. The revelations about McCabe’s actions eventually led to his being fired from the FBI.
