U.S. Attorney John Durham published a statement forcefully pushing back on some of the conclusions found in the newly released IG report.

Attorney General Barr has tapped Durham to conduct his own investigation into abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by the United States intelligence community.

Key takeaway from U.S. Attorney Durham:

“Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”

The full statement reads:

“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff.  However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department.  Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.  Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”
