But the worst thing about this is that the IG said they couldn't say that anyone had the "intent," of doing something wrong. I get so sick and tired of the federal government doing this. In the private sector it doesn't matter if we "meant," to do something wrong; if we commit a crime, we do the time. It's not unlike how the FBI treated Hillary. Yes, she had a secret server. Yes, she sent and received classified information. Yes, she lied in various hearings. She was guilty of several things and some of those had to do with national security. But, the FBI said she didn't "intend," to do anything wrong. How do they know? They interviewed her for a few hours on a Saturday, at her home, without being under oath, and Comey came back with all the things she did wrong but exonerated her for being naïve.
This is why investigators in the private sector aren't allowed to cut people loose who they think didn't mean to commit a crime. There would be chaos. People wouldn't respect the judicial system. Everyone involved with packaging the "fake dossier," and selling it to the FISA court, should be in prison. It's that simple.
