The upshot of the entire report is that there is a set of guidelines for how to FBI should handle their sources, and the FBI has basically been ignoring all guidelines for a long time

This is not the IG report we have all been expecting. The current scuttlebutt is that report will come out sometime in the next two weeks. This report probably feeds into that report though. Basically the FBI was conducting investigations with very poor precedent and apparently unvetted sources. The criminal behavior will probably be that they knowingly obtained FISA warrants with terrible precedent/sources, and that the system was intentionally set up this way so that they could manufacture a case against whoever they wanted.
