    Uh oh! Story breaking everywhere.
    Pretty gutsy of Barr to stand up and effectively call out Horowitz as a hack. If Barr and Durham have evidence to back them up, Horowitz should be fired. One thing though,
    the article was coauthored by Devlin Barrett, a Strzok and Page buddy. The “journalist” they would send stories they wanted published. This story might be a fake leak to give Schiff a reason to investigate the IG’s findings and say they were changed by Barr. They will then demand Barr recuse himself. The hitch will be on the 11th, when Horowitz testifies.

    Wasn’t he coming out with some major report that goes to the top of the Obama administration?
    Or did that investigation flop like the last two dozen or so Republican investigations?

    Unlike the democrats on this board, we'll just have to wait and see. Horowitz doesn't have the power Durham does and if he finds something he'll prosecute, for the country I hope this whole Russian thing was indeed just the hoax created by the left and media just because they couldn't handle they got their ass kicked in 2016. That being said if it can be proven the DOJ or intelligent services broke the law then they should be thrown in the hole for life. Dangerous situation for our country so I want hard facts.

    Ah. The paper that called the leader of the biggest terrorist group in the world, a religious scholar. Great journalism coming out of that rats nest.

    Barr disagrees but cannot really do anything about the report and it doesn’t explain why he disagrees outside of he believes they didn’t scrutinize the evidence enough.

    In other words they didn’t arrive at the conclusion he wanted.

    You can bypass paywalls on WaPo by opening an incognito tab and navigating to the article there.

    I don't even know what an incognito tab is, dearie.

    Is this part of it?

    Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the prelude to a major fissure within federal law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign.

    Barr has not been swayed by Horowitz’s rationale for concluding the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July 31, 2016, these people said.

    The IG didn't have subpoena powers, so probably not. Durham does. I think if Barr disagrees with the IG report he can issue a statement saying why, which then becomes part of the report.

    Either that or they didn't arrive at the conclusion the facts warranted.

    Option 1 is the truth and correct.
    Option 2 is fake news.

    Barr is Trump's personal criminal attorney of course he will not see the investigation of Trump's behavior honestly.

    Were you talking about al Baghdadi?

    He was a religious fanatic.

    What does that have to do with priests?

    We don't know what's in the report, or what if any, disagreement Barr has with it.
