I guess it depends on your definition of evidence. Did you use the same evidence evaluation to accept the Steele dossier as true?

Disinformation’ claim ‘galls’ dossier author Christopher Steele

A competing evaluation emerges from the Horowitz report, which says: "The FBI concluded, among other things, that although consistent with known efforts by Russia to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections, much of the material in the Steele election reports, including allegations about Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign relied upon in the Carter Page FISA applications, could not be corroborated; that certain allegations were inaccurate or inconsistent with information gathered by the Crossfire Hurricane team; and that the limited information that was corroborated related to time, location, and title information, much of which was publicly available.”

The FBI apologizes https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/10/u...isa-court.html.

From the link: "the F.B.I. had cherry-picked and misstated evidence about the Trump adviser, Carter Page"- I'm not happy the FBI felt this was OK, whether the target is Page or any citizen.

As I once asked the OP's reference, who the fuck is Carter Page and why should I give a shit about him? Since then I've learned more but care less. These days the give a fuck about any bozos has stopped having much value.

Because it isn't about Page? It's about law enforcement doing this to anyone.

Well, the immediate issue is the FBI doing it to someone involved in a criminal organization, so that's part of the puzzlement.
