While questioning Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) conveyed a strong desire to see swift accountability at the FBI following the release of the damning Inspector General report.
Kennedy, along with multiple U.S. Senators, criticized the gross misconduct of the FBI. He stated:
“This has got to be fixed. At minimum somebody has got to be fired.”
Inspector General Horowitz’s response to Kennedy’s statement:
“I agree, completely. There has to be a change in the culture.”
IG Horowitz: Andy McCabe “handpicked” the agents involved w/ FISA misconduct.

Today’s testimony by the Inspector General confirmed President Trump’s assertion that his 2016 campaign was spied on without cause during the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane operation. This spying stemmed from political bias in the form of intentional omissions and inaccuracies.
Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney John Durham is conducting his own investigation, at the request of U.S. Attorney William Barr, which will likely expose more corruption at the FBI and Department of Justice.
