Were FBI 302 interview records modified?

Fox NewsThe FBI may have "edited and changed" key witness reports in the Hillary Clinton and Russia investigations, a top House Republican charged in a hearing into FBI and Justice Department misconduct Tuesday.

I've seen that alleged multiple times, but we don't know any details, and as far as I know it wasn't in the report. He says his office intends to follow up on that matter. That's fine for Michael Flynn (who is another case of alleged modified 302s) but what about the allegations that the 302s from the Clinton case were either modified after the fact or carefully sanitized by agents as they were written? How can he follow up on that matter if he has already written his report on the Clinton email case?

Also, just as an aside: it's shameful and borderline suspicious that the FBI relies on notes from agents rather than recording their interviews.

Fox NewsFreedom Caucus Chair Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C, also raised the possibility that the FBI misled the DOJ watchdog in an attempt to hide the identities of FBI employees who were caught sending anti-Trump messages.

Believe it or not, that's not referring to the likely attempts from Strzok to hide his embarrassing promise to stop Trump. It's referring to another pair of lawyers who haven't gotten much attention yet.

Fox NewsIn a dramatic moment, Meadows then directly asked Horowitz whether two anonymous FBI employees identified as making anti-Trump statements in the IG's report were named Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer.

Horowitz refused to confirm the employees' identities, which the FBI has declined to publicly reveal, citing the supposed sensitivity of their counterintelligence matters.

Public accountability demands we know who they are, so we can demand they be removed from any investigations where their bias might influence the results.
