    Re: What Is 2019-2020 Reality Fake OR Fact

    That's right - doesn't Wray understand that the FBI is the President's personal secret police? It's not his job to report the truth, but what Trump tells him to report. People who are loyal to their country, not the person running, it should be fired. How else will a man be able to set up a dictatorship?

    Don't think MSDNC or CNN aired it...

    So the Fox State news covered Graham. What do professional fact checkers point out?

    Opinion: Lindsey Graham can’t stop spinning and panting and disgracing himself — just like Trump
    On Wednesday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, kicked off a hearing about the Trump-Russia probe by bewailing government surveillance.

    He sounded like a downright radical.

    He likened what the FBI did to poor Russia-connected Trump adviser Carter Page in 2016 to what J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI did to Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s.

    Sure, Lindsey.

    Reminder: In 1964, J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI sent King an anonymous letter, calling him “sexually psychotic” and urging him to commit suicide.

    Graham, of course, has long been a passionate supporter of the NSA surveillance program and the Patriot Act. So not only was his comparison of Page to King invidious, but his fakey concern for people’s privacy was also pathetic.

    And then Graham launched into a dramatic reading of private texts.

    Wanna guess whose texts? Yep: those exchanges between former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and former FBI agent Peter Strzok, in which they criticize Trump.

    As the public well knows, Trump has harbored a prurient obsession with these texts for years. At a Minnesota rally in October, he even did an impression of Page and Strzok writing texts, during which the president of the United States, in front of a crowd of thousands, panted through a fake orgasm.

    And now Graham reintroduced the Page-Stzrok texts in the hearing room Wednesday to push back on the findings of the report that was the occasion for the day’s hearing.

    The hearing was convened to discuss the “Review of Four FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation,” issued by the office of the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz.

    Somehow, Graham neglected to read other texts quoted in Horowitz’s review — the ones that show how pro-Trump FBI agents worked in tandem with the Trump-Russia investigators.

    “Trump!” one of the texts exulted right after the 2016 election; a respondent shoots back, using expletives, that things “just got real.” He goes on to suggest that heads will roll during Trump’s presidency. “Start looking for new jobs fellas,” he says, obscurely.

    But here’s the truth: None of this SMS prattle — for or against Trump — matters.

    Because Horowitz’s thorough review showed that no political bias informed the FBI’s actions in the 2016-2019 Trump-Russia probe.

    “There was no bias,” Horowitz told the committee. Repeatedly. Unmistakably.

    His review also found that the FBI was amply justified in opening the Trump-Russia investigation.

    But the American public knows all this, or should. The Trump-Russia investigation, which was eventually led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, produced 34 indictments, including against members of the Trump campaign and the Russian military who also worked to get him elected.

    On behalf of the American people, the Trump-Russia investigation chronicled and penalized interference into American elections by foreign powers.

    And certainly the Mueller report, which we now know was justified and unbiased, made lawmakers more vigilant about such interference.

    The reason we know that Trump asked Ukraine in July for dirt on a rival — for which he is now likely to be impeached by the House — is that many members of Congress, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), had made it clear they had zero tolerance for Trump’s hospitality to foreign interference. Concerned civil servants flagged that phone call and offered testimony in Congress about how dangerous it was.

    But at the same time as it clears the Mueller investigation of bias, the Horowitz review also shows missteps, some grievous, by the FBI. This gets bureaucratic, but much of it has to do with how the FBI went about surveilling Carter Page, Trump’s former foreign policy adviser. Horowitz’s report spells out 17 problems with the applications for FISA warrants, which are warrants issued under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.

    Graham, who in earlier days used to champion the FISA courts, now believes the courts need thorough reform.
    Seems I didn't read this in your depiction that trump is a victim.

    'S--- just got real': DOJ watchdog uncovers pro-Trump text messages between FBI agents after 2016 election

    The Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, uncovered a series of text messages between two FBI agents expressing support for President Donald Trump right after the 2016 US election.

    In his report, published Monday, on the origins of the FBI's Russia investigation, Horowitz detailed texts between a handling agent and a co-handling agent on November 9, 2016, rejoicing over Trump's victory the previous day.

    "Trump!" the handling agent said.

    "Hahaha. S--- just got real," the co-handling agent replied.

    "Yes it did," the handling agent said.

    The co-handling agent responded: "I saw a lot of scared MFers on ... [my way to work] this morning. Start looking for new jobs fellas. Haha."


    Horowitz's report, which was highly anticipated by both Democrats and Republicans, debunked many of Trump's conspiracy theories about anti-Trump bias among top brass at the FBI and the Justice Department.

    The report said:

    The FBI had an "authorized purpose" to launch the Russia investigation.

    The bureau's use of confidential informants complied with the rules.

    There is no "documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations" into the Trump campaign aides George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, the former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and the former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

    There were "significant inaccuracies and omissions" in applications for warrants to surveil Page, and FBI agents "failed to meet the basic obligation" to make sure the applications were "scrupulously accurate."

    "We do not speculate whether the correction of any particular misstatement or omission, or some combination thereof, would have resulted in a different outcome," the report said. "Nevertheless, the department's decision makers and the court should have been given complete and accurate information so that they could meaningfully evaluate probable cause before authorizing the surveillance of a US person associated with a presidential campaign."

    There is no "documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the FBI's decision to seek FISA authority on Carter Page."

    The Russia investigation, spearheaded first by FBI Director James Comey and later by the special counsel Robert Mueller, found that Trump's campaign enthusiastically welcomed Russian interference in the 2016 election but that there was not sufficient evidence to bring a conspiracy charge against anyone on the campaign.

    It also found that there were over 10 instances in which Trump tried to obstruct justice in the investigation but that he was largely unsuccessful because his own staff refused to carry out his orders. Mueller declined to make a "traditional prosecutorial judgment" on whether to charge Trump, citing a 1973 Office of Legal Counsel memo that said a sitting president could not be indicted.

    Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed Horowitz to launch an internal investigation into the origins of the Russia probe after Trump and his allies accused the FBI of acting improperly when it sought a warrant to surveil Page before and after the election. The president also alleged that the FBI "spied" on his campaign in what he dubbed "Spygate."
    From what I gather, full reality is no longer a driving point in the GOP because of a need to pledge allegiance to President Trump.
