ALGOP Chairman Terry Lathan Statement on the Release of the Inspector General’s Report

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan released the following statement concerning the findings of the Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s handling of its investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump:

“Americans should all be gravely concerned by the numerous errors and omissions employees of the FBI made when seeking FISA court warrants to monitor President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Our country is based on freedom and trust as we expect the highest integrity from our government officials. It is unconscionable to discover that members of the bureau mislead the American people. Even the liberal Washington Post reports, ‘FBI officials repeatedly decided to emphasize damaging information they heard about Trump associates, and play down exculpatory evidence they found.’ Their actions were harmful to our country. These types of inexcusable behavior cannot be tolerated in our great nation.”
