In the "investigate the investigators" probe, the evil dossier guy was grilled at length, and what do you know -- he came out smelling like a rose. Natasha Bertrand reports:
Christopher Steele, the former British spy behind the infamous “dossier” on President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, was interviewed for 16 hours in June by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The interview is part of an ongoing investigation that the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, has been conducting for the past year. Specifically, Horowitz has been examining the FBI’s efforts to surveil a one-time Trump campaign adviser [Carter Page] based in part on information from Steele, an ex-British MI6 agent who had worked with the bureau as a confidential source since 2010....
Every wingnut in America has been waiting for Horowitz to unmask the true evil of the Deep State. However:
The interview was contentious at first, the sources added, but investigators ultimately found Steele’s testimony credible and even surprising.
Poor Sean Hannity!
The takeaway has irked some U.S. officials interviewed as part of the probe — they argue that it shouldn’t have taken a foreign national to convince the inspector general that the FBI acted properly in 2016.
This is how it always goes with the real witch hunts in American politics -- the ones conducted by Republicans and egged on by Fox News. The base is strung along for months, certain that this time the truth will be uncovered and all of liberalism will come crashing down, and then, when it turns out that there's no massive evil to be exposed -- just as in Benghazi, or the FBI's email probe of Hillary Clinton -- they scream "Cover-up!" and insist that there needs to be another investigation. They never accept the truth, just as they never accept that there's no voter impersonation crisis in America, and no massive wave of Middle Eastern terrorists sneaking across the Mexican border alongside Central American migrants.

We're always guilty. It's just that the truth hasn't been uncovered -- yet.
