Investigative reporter Paul Sperry of the New York Post has revealed that IG Michael Horowitz has over 100 cases of rules and law violations mong FBI agents with some of those agents committing major violations. Those investigations are allegedly ongoing. That is a far cry from what the New York Times has published.
They claim that Horowitz did not find any criminal activity at all. I guess we have to wait until Monday to see what the real story is but since it is the NYT, I can just about guess.We know that no one in the FBI or the DOJ were ever able to confirm even one premise laid out in the Steele dossier because here we are three years later and nothing has ever been confirmed but many parts have been utterly debunked.
BREAKING: Justice IG Horowitz has 104 criminal or administrative investigations of alleged misconduct related to FBI employees open as of Sept. 30, according to new OIG report. The criminal investigations involve “serious allegations of official misconduct.”

We do know that Horowitz found that FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith altered documents used in getting FISA warrants against Carter Page. He has allegedly admitted to altering the document and will at the very least lose his law license at least for a while.
UPDATE ON THIS STORY: Paul Sperry’s tweet re 104 criminal investigations is NOT — REPEAT NOT — a “leak” from incoming OIG Report. That figure comes directly from the OIG website. Specifically, on page 15 of the Semiannual Report to Congress for April 1, 2019 to Sept. 30, 2019, which was released on Nov. 27, 2019 on the OIG website, available here: https://oig.justice.gov/semiannual/1911.pdf
