Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he had already appointed an "outside Department of Justice official" to investigate the charges brought by the House Intelligence Committee and the matters revealed by the ongoing inspector general's investigation of wrongdoing by DOJ and FBI officials.
Sessions added: "Also, I am well aware we have a responsibility to insure the integrity of the FISA process. We're not afraid to look at that. The inspector general, some think that our inspector general is not very strong, but he has almost 500 employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors, and they are looking at the FISA process. We must make sure that it's done properly, and we're going to do that. And I'll consider their request."
It's certainly likely that such familiar names to us as "Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Bruce Ohr and likely Nellie Ohr, have cut some kind of deal with the outside prosecutor for process leniency in exchange for cooperation with the IG and DOJ prosecutor,"
