Durham disputes Horowitz after release of IG Report
U.S. Attorney John H. Durham has released a statement for immediate release that appears to dispute the findings of the IG Report released and Michael Horowitz and his team's findings.
The statement was released on the Justice.gov website and was very short and to the point.
Durham's statement is as follows:
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.
It remains unclear if Horowitz has responded to this statement at the time.
