Day 1054

1/ The Justice Department inspector general's report concluded that the Russia probe was justified. The 434-page report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found the FBI had an "authorized purpose" when it initiated its investigation into possible coordination between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia, rejecting conservative allegations that top FBI officials were motivated by political bias and illegally spied on Trump advisers. Trump called the evidence in the report "far worse than I ever thought possible" and the FBI's actions a "disgrace," because – he claimed – "they fabricated evidence and they lied to the courts." Horowitz, however, uncovered "documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions," but noted "serious performance failures" by some FBI officials.
