BREAKING: FBI Official Under Investigation, Allegedly Altered Document in Russian Probe

An FBI official is under criminal investigation for allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, according to a new bombshell CNN reports.

Details are expected to be part of the long awaited IG report that is scheduled to drop December 9th.

During the time of the alleged incident, James Comey was still the FBI Director.

CNN reports an FBI official is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, several people briefed on the matter told CNN.

The possibility of a substantive change to an investigative document is likely to fuel accusations from President Donald Trump and his allies that the FBI committed wrongdoing in its investigation of connections between Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.

The finding is expected to be part of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of the FBI’s effort to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide. Horowitz will release the report next month.

Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.

It’s unknown how significant a role the altered document played in the FBI’s investigation of Page and whether the FISA warrant would have been approved without the document. The alterations were significant enough to have shifted the document’s meaning and came up during a part of Horowitz’s FISA review where details were classified, according to the sources.

Robby Starbuck tweeted:

Remember how the media called us conspiracy theorists because we said the FBI was working to frame Trump in 2015 & 2016? Well an FBI official is under criminal investigation after admitting to changing a document related to surveilling Trump’s campaign.
