US watchdog finds no evidence of political bias when FBI launched inquiry into 2016 Trump campaign

A US watchdog has found no evidence of political bias when the FBI launched an inquiry into the 2016 Trump campaign, despite "serious performance failures".

BBC News reports the US Department of Justice inspector general's report concluded the law enforcement bureau had "authorised purpose" to initiate the investigation.

But it also found applications to wiretap a Trump aide had "significant inaccuracies and omissions".

The 476-page report provides fodder for Trump critics and supporters alike.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz sought to assess the basis for the FBI's surveillance of Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser who had lived and worked in Russia.
