The FISA Court approves orders for conducting surveillance on suspected foreign terrorists or spies and the CHIEF Judge issued a very strong and extremely unusual public statement to the FBI today. The letter asks for a format on how the FBI was going to address this issue of integrity breaches and deceptive behavior.
The Justice Department IG Horowitz said that the FBI made gravely serious and repeated mistakes in acquiring the FISA warrants to conduct surveillance of Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy advisor.
The FISA warrant application according to the Chief Judge was “inaccurate, incomplete, or unsupported by appropriate documentation,” the report said.
Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, said in the unusual public order that the report “calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.” She ordered the FBI to explain in writing by Jan. 10 how it intends to remedy those problems.
James Comey, at last, probably should have some questions about this deception that he has to answer under oath, along with McCabe, Strzok and the others.
