Once again I’ll be live tweeting the #IGReport hearing today.

I’m going to use this as a thread to keep all the tweets together.

Make sure to re-tweet this and share far and wide!
#IGReport IG Report

Here is the link for the video of the hearing. Starting now.

#IGReport IG Report

Jerry Nadler is interrupting Gowdy and not even letting him start his opening statement before talking about the children on the border. 🙄🙄🙄🙄
#IGReport IG Report

People are disrupting the hearing yelling “families belong together” And are being escorted out by Capitol police
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy looks like he hasn’t slept or shaved in weeks.
#IGReport IG Report

Cummings will do his best to deflect from the findings of the report, except to say the liberal talking point “there was no political bias”.

This man not only lives in the swamp, but rents out land in the swamp.
#IGReport IG Report

I’m not sure if Cummings realizes his mic is on, or if he loses the concept of volume in his voice as he’s gotten older.

He’s been yelling for a few minutes already.
#IGReport IG Report

Cummings going off the rails (and faking crying), saying that the US has child internment camps..

Does he remember this is a hearing about the IG Report?

..... Still yelling
#IGReport IG Report

Goodlatte: FBI read INTENT into the Espionage Act, which doesn't exist.

v Espionage Act v
law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18…
#IGReport IG Report

Goodlatte: FBI replaced 'Obama' with senior government official, regarding someone who was emailing with HRC on her private server.

Remember, Obama said he didn't know about the emails and only learned from the news.
#IGReport IG Report

I wouldn't expect @twitter to let either of these terms trends today, even though IG Report had over 100,000 tweets yesterday.

But keep at it anyway and expose their bias.
#IGReport IG Report

Jerry Nadler is asking why we are even talking about Clinton emails at all..

Completely disregarding the findings that she not only had TOP SECRET emails on her computer... But had a MAID print them out and destroyed evidenced that was rightfully subpoenaed.
#IGReport IG Report

I'm glad that Christopher Wray isn't there today, we should be able to cut through a lot of the watered down BS he gave to us yesterday.

Horowitz for the Win.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: "The POLITICAL texts we found, cast a cloud over the Mid Year Investigation."
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: We DIDN'T HAVE CONFIDENCE Strzok's decision to put the Russia investigation over the Weiner Laptop situation to be FREE FROM BIAS
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: McCabe used Lisa Page to leak information.

Confirmed by Horowitz
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: Lisa Page and Peter Strzok both expected (and wanted) Hillary Clinton to win the election, though they wouldn't have ever thought that if they had expected her to be indicted or criminally charged. This was DURING the investigation.
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: 3 days after the Russia investigation began.. Strzok said "damn this feels momentous and this was to make sure we didn't F things up, this investigation MATTERS"
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: The lead FBI agent on the Russia investigation says he will "stop Trump" from becoming President and already prejudged the outcome.

Strzok: "I wanna believe there's no way he gets elected, but we can't take that risk. We need an insurance policy."
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: "It's clear from the context that Strzok wanted to stop Trump from becoming President."

Sorry Libs, can't squirm out of that one.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: We found 2 additional FBI agents and 1 attorney, 2/3 were working on the Trump/Russia probe, who had animus against Trump.
#IGReport IG Report

Strzok: "I unleashed it, now I need to fix it and finish it"

Horowitz: He believed he would use his authority to take action. And that's antithetical to the FBI core values.

Gowdy; This was only 1 day into the Russia probe and maybe that's the outcome bias.
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: If someone is prejudging the outcome of an investigation before it ends, and another before it even begins, what is more bias than that? What am I missing?

Horowitz: We are looking at that in an ongoing way in relation to Russia investigation.
#IGReport IG Report

Gowdy: *BOOM* I read the 302 and there wasn't a single question about INTENT.
#IGReport IG Report

Cummings is coming back on, feel free to take a quick nap, unless you leave the TV on and he wakes you up from his yelling.
#IGReport IG Report

It's so hysterical that the Dems are trying to say that @Comey's actions were to HELP Trump. 😂

The reason he made the public statements about reopening HRC investigation was to CLEAR her before the election otherwise NYPD would release Weiner laptop info.
#IGReport IG Report

I think Cummings read, and is repeating other Dem member's testimony from yesterday because he's just repeating the same things they said yesterday.. Waiting for him to mention Giuliani for the hat trick.
#IGReport IG Report

ANNNNNNNNND HE JUST MENTIONED GIULIANI.. CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP

LMFAOO
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz not sure if he sought interviews from anyone within the Obama white house. Especially not Obama. He doesn't know if he even would've liked to have done that... HMM? Not liking that answer Mikey.
#IGReport IG Report

🚨

Horowitz: We are looking into if Strzok's texts of political bias influenced his decision to start the Russia Investigation.
#IGReport IG Report

Goodlatte: Makes a great case on why intent cannot be conflated with gross negligence.

Relates it to a drug smuggler carrying a package and not being able to use the defense that he doesn't know what's in it.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: Clinton had a duty to understand if there was Classified material moving through her UNCLASSIFIED system.

He and Goodlatte are dismantling the intent factor in the @comey statements, regarding Hillary Clinton's violation of the Espionage Act.
#IGReport IG Report

Good round of questioning by @RepGoodlatte right now.

Dismantles the Intent argument.

Gets Horowitz to almost admit that Trump's firing of @Comey was justified. He danced around it, but was smiling during his answer.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: Certain individual's texts showed bias against Trump (paraphrasing)
#IGReport IG Report

🚨 Sorry Libs

Horowitz: "WE FOUND STRZOK EXHIBITED BIAS, we found decisions that were made by OTHERS were not infected by bias, but we had concerns that his biased state of mind impacted his October decision regarding his the Weiner laptop"
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: "Almost everything we found was the other way and was anti-trump"

Regarding texts by FBI Agents involved in the Clinton email investigation, while Jerry Nadler tried to argue that there may have been agents who were anti-Clinton
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: "I can't say Strzok's anti-Trump bias didn't impact his decisions"

Regarding Pre-July but he's very concerned about October (Weiner laptop)
#IGReport IG Report

Still nothing trending on this hearing yet. Cmon @twitter not even a live stream? No trends? NOTHING.
#IGReport IG Report

@Twitter has #VerifiedTPT Live Streaming... A video on people answering sports questions.

But one of the most important political hearings in USA history, there's not even a mention.. If this was about Trump, it would be front page, live stream and trending.
#IGReport IG Report

ERRRRMAAGODDD

LOOK AT ALL THE IMPORTANT THINGS ON @Twitter Moments.

It's not like there's questioning of the DOJ IG about the FBI's most important investigations of the 21st century.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: We didn't say that their words were not indicative of bias, we were very concerned with them.

ISSA: So, you found bias?

Horowitz: Correct.
#IGReport IG Report

Issa: How did @Comey see the report before it was public?

Horowitz: *Reference to Fast and Furious* 👀"If they come in voluntarily to speak to us, we give him that access"

Issa: Did he sign NDA?

Horowitz: Yes.

Issa: He tweeted about it, violating NDA.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: "There was a period of several months where the FBI wasn't collecting texts" and we went through 4 rounds of review to get those texts (paraphrasing)
#IGReport IG Report

Rep Norton is really struggling to not just get questions out, but to string words together.
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: Obama was one of 13 individuals who was emailing with Clinton on her unsecured email server. "I'm not certain if those emails were among the classified materials"
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz: Strzok and Page's fingerprints were involved in the drafting of the exoneration of Clinton where they changed the words from 'grossly negligent' (criminally guilty) to 'extremely careless' (non legal term) and 'Obama' to 'senior government official'
#IGReport IG Report

Again, NOTHING of this hearing is being shown through @Twitter trends, moments, or live streams. Two Days of questioning.

I guess Trae Young and National Martini Day are more important.
#IGReport IG Report

Jim Jordan going on his 3rd line of questioning after being given time by two other Congressman 🙌
#IGReport IG Report

Jordan: We had the text of Page asking if Trump is going to be President but not the "we'll stop it" texts.

Horowitz: To us it was a technical problem

Jordan: I'm more concerned that Rosenstein didn't get it to us as quickly as he should've
#IGReport IG Report

🚨🧐

Horowitz: "WE HAVE LOTS OF INVESTIGATIONS ONGOING"
#IGReport IG Report

Jordan: "Will you be looking at Rosensteins threats vs Congressmen"

Horowitz: "I need to understand more about it and how it might connect to this"

Jordan: Why didn't they tell the FISA court why HRC and Dems paid for Dossier

H: We'll Look into it.
#IGReport IG Report

Sheila Jackson Lee is interrupting Jim Jordan right now with a parliamentary inquiry calling his line of questioning "germane" ... without raising an actually parliamentary inquiry..
#IGReport IG Report

Plan to Break at 1pm...

Are there going to be other rounds of questioning? Or are they planning to end this at 1pm?
#IGReport IG Report

Rep Clay just called out Jim Jordan by name. Whereas usually they call them "my friend/colleague from X state".
#IGReport IG Report

Just curious, but if someone (read: almost everyone) asks the same question, as a Congressman, wouldn't you not want to keep repeating it over and over? Doesn't seem to be a productive use of time. (Democrats)
#IGReport IG Report

Sheila Jackson Lee for the second time tries to get Horowitz to say it was the SDNY who leaked information (to imply they gave it to Giuliani)

Horowitz: "We did not find that" and we have ongoing investigations into leaks (paraphrasing)
#IGReport IG Report

Rep Jeffries accuses Republicans of peddling conspiracy theories and labels them the "Coverup Caucus"... as he continues to peddle his own conspiracy theories.

But I think he thinks, like Cummings, that the louder you say something the truer it becomes.
#IGReport IG Report

Gianforte: *Finally Someone* Talking about the FBI Agents taking Bribes by reporters.

*Over 50+ agents with 300+ interactions*

Horowitz: "We wanted to make this public but, we have this work ongoing" 🚨🧐
#IGReport IG Report

Gianforte: The leaking to the media by FBI agents was widely known within the FBI

Horowitz: Correct

G: Knowledge of the practice was widespread

H: "The contact alone wasn't being addressed effectively"
#IGReport IG Report

Horowitz; If we find even CONTACTS of FBI agents with media, without proving leaks, we will refer that to the OPR.

NICE. Go Get Em.
#IGReport IG Report

We Will Reconvene at 1:45pm Eastern.
#IGReport IG Report

I will be starting a new thread when the next round of questioning begins.
