Good question ftom Eddie Scarry at the Washington Examiner:

Michael Horowitz admitted over and over during a Senate hearing on Wednesday that he didn’t know the answers to the most important questions regarding his investigation of the FBI’s spying on President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Why, then, was he so confident in his conclusions that despite some issues here and there, everything there was above board?

Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, said in his report this week he found no evidence that FBI agents who conducted the investigation of Trump’s campaign were motivated by political bias against the president. He also said, despite scores of problems with the legal authorization and reauthorization of that investigation, it was nonetheless justified under department rules.

So, if Horowitz can’t explain their motives, how in the world can he make the judgment that there wasn’t any bias involved?

One gets the decided impression that Horowitz is concerned about ending up face down in Fort Marcy Park, with two bullets in the back of his head and a gun in his hand that won’t fire.
