More very damaging reports coming out. This brings us back to the whole wiretapping issue, and it appears the FBI may have broken the law. That is not some left-wing conspiracy, that is the report from the Justice Department’s Inspector General:
The FBI repeatedly failed to follow the strict guidelines of the Patriot Act when its agents took advantage of a new provision allowing the FBI to obtain phone and financial records without a court order, according to a report to be made public Friday by the Justice Department’s Inspector General.
The report, in classified and unclassified versions, remains closely held, but Washington officials who have seen it tell ABC News it documents “numerous lapses” and describe it as “scathing” and “not a pretty picture for the FBI.”
FBI Director Robert Mueller is scheduled to brief Congress on the report at noon.
This is going to be another huge story. Impeachment time now?
