Watchdog expected to find Russia probe valid, despite flaws

Source: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Justice Departmentís internal watchdog will release a highly anticipated report Monday that is expected to reject President Donald Trumpís claims that the Russia investigation was illegitimate and tainted by political bias from FBI leaders. But it is also expected to document errors during the investigation that may animate Trump supporters.

The report, as described by people familiar with its findings, is expected to conclude there was an adequate basis for opening one of the most politically sensitive investigations in FBI history and one that Trump has denounced as a witch hunt. It began in secret during Trumpís 2016 presidential run and was ultimately taken over by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The report comes as Trump faces an impeachment inquiry in Congress centered on his efforts to press Ukraine to investigate a political rival, Democrat Joe Biden. Trump also claims the impeachment investigation is politically biased.

The release of Inspector General Michael Horowitzís review is unlikely to quell the partisan battles that have surrounded the Russia investigation. Itís also not the last word on that investigation. A separate internal investigation continues, overseen by Trumpís attorney general, William Barr and led a U.S. attorney, John Durham.
