DOJ Inspector General Testifies About FBI’s Carter Page Surveillance

HeadlineDec 19, 2019

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz says the FBI should have considered halting its surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page during testimony to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Wednesday. Horowitz’s testimony comes after the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — known as the FISA Court — issued a public order accusing the FBI of misleading the court to gain approval for the Carter Page wiretap, and ordering the FBI to propose changes in how its investigators seek permission for domestic surveillance of U.S. citizens. We’ll have more on this story later in the broadcast.
