Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz released his report on the Trump-Russia probe and FISA applications Monday afternoon. His report considers whether or not there was any wrongdoing in the probe, run by the Obama administration and launched against the candidate who ran against many of Obama’s policies. The grounds for the Trump-Russia investigation proved extremely weak, from the Clinton campaign-funded Steele dossier to tenuous links regarding obscure members of the Trump campaign like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

“We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations,” the report states.

Yet the report also reveals many errors in the investigations. It is also likely to reveal more bias in the Obama administration against Trump and on behalf of Hillary Clinton. The notorious Peter Strzok and Lisa Page both feature in the report.
