For John, BLUF: It is funny how bureaucracies, of any sort, once locked in, are unable to admit they made a mistake. Even the Louisiana State Police are unable, all these years later, are unable to admit they are the ones who shot Senator Huey P Long. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede plus one:
Remember back in the early days of 2018 when there was the clash of the dueling memos on Russiagate and the role of the FBI and the FISA court applications? The Nunes memo was criticized by Democrats even before it was released, and afterwards Adam Schiff released his own memo that contested what Nunes had asserted.When I think of Russiagate it reminds me of l'affaire Dreyfus, with perhaps Rep David Nunes in the role of Journalist Émile Zola.
And of course the MSM trashed Nunes (for example: the memo is “a joke and a sham”) and lauded Schiff. Now we have the Horowitz Report that represents an examination of some of the same facts that Nunes and Schiff were duking it out over, and Nunes is completely vindicated and Schiff should slink away in shame along with most of the MSM.
So what roles do Rep Adam Schiff and former FBI Director James Comey play?
