State Department Inspector General Failed to Interview Key Individuals Regarding Actions with Steele Dossier
The State Department’s Office of Inspector General failed to do a thorough investigation related to State Department activities surrounding Spygate. Key individuals were not interviewed and no report was prepared from interviews that did take place!
In a letter from Senators Grassley and Johnson to the State Department’s Inspector General, they asked why key employees were not interviewed related to the Steele dossier and why no report was created –
The Daily Caller reported the letter issued on Thursday –
Two Republican senators are questioning the State Department inspector general’s handling of an investigation into an October 2016 meeting between department officials and dossier author Christopher Steele.
Sens. Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley reveal in a letter released Thursday that the office of the inspector general (OIG) conducted a review of the Oct. 11, 2016 meeting. The watchdog also looked at whether Jonathan Winer, the State Department official who arranged the meeting with Steele, violated the agency’s policies regarding intelligence gathering practices.
But the OIG failed to interview some of the key players involved in the meeting, the senators say.
“We write seeking to understand why the OIG did not issue a report on its investigation and did not interview employees who most likely have relevant information regarding the subject matter of the inquiry,” Johnson and Grassley wrote to Steve Linick, the inspector general.
