Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, made the following statement and posted the following tweets after the public release of the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General report entitled “Review of Four FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation”:

“The Inspector General report confirms what many have feared for years – misconduct occurred using powerful tools with the unchecked targeting of a domestic political Presidential campaign. Transparency AND accountability are desperately needed and long overdue. AG Barr and Congress must help to reinstate the American people’s trust in these historic agencies.”

Rep. Zeldin also posted the following tweets below:

  1. “The Crossfire Hurricane team failed to inform Department officials of significant information that was available to the team at the time that the FISA applications were drafted and filed.”

  2. “Much of that information was inconsistent with, or undercut, the assertions contained in the FISA applications that were used to support probable cause and, in some  instances, resulted in inaccurate information being included in the applications.”

  3. “as the FBI obtained additional information raising significant questions about the reliability of the Steele election reporting, the FBI failed to reassess the Steele reporting relied upon in the FISA applications, and did not fully advise NSD or OI officials.”

  4. Horowitz’s IG Report IDs 17 errors and omissions in the Page FISA Applications and describes “the failures in the performance of the Woods Procedures that could have prevented some, but not all, of the errors and omissions we identified.” *See from Page 363 as well as Appendix I
