Michael Horowitz, the inspector general for the Department of Justice, released a damning report about the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Specifically, Horowitz found that the FBI abused the process of obtaining warrants to initiate surveillance on the campaign through the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, better known as FISA. My guest is Jerry Dunleavy, he’s a Justice Department reporter with the Washington Examiner. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the I.G. report, how the FISA courts are supposed to work, and how the FBI abused the entire process.

    The volume on this podcast is consistently below normal levels. If I am not sitting directly in front of my computer it is almost impossible to hear what is being said. This is a good podcast, but the poor management of the production diminishes its worth.
