Read the FISA swamp report & key comments from the right

10

The FISA report reveals that the FBI “fell far short” in vetting the accuracy of FISA applications, knowingly withheld exculpatory information, used ‘defensive briefings’ to secretly assess the Trump campaign, used known illegitimate sources, and more.

“Much of that information was inconsistent with, or undercut, the assertions contained in the FISA applications that were used to support the probable cause and, in some instances, resulted in inaccurate information being included in the applications,” Rep. Zeldin tweeted.

“The Crossfire Hurricane team failed to inform Department officials of significant information that was available to the team at the time that the FISA applications were drafted and filed,” Zeldin continued in a tweet.

The IG report faulted the FBI over numerous inaccuracies in the application process. There were 17 ‘errors’ in the Carter Page applications.

The problem isn’t with the report, just its conclusions.

AG BILL BARR DISAGREES WITH ONE KEY POINT

Attorney General Bill Barr said, “The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.”

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reminds us that the IG was not charged with investigating the origins of the probe, only the FISA abuse.

FLYNN’S CASE LOOKS GOOD

BOTTOM LINE FROM THE SWAMP

The IG report finds no bias and no political motivations. Huh?

Republicans had alleged the FBI and the Justice Department misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court about the dossier’s Democratic benefactors, which included Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and had complained that the dossier’s flaws and the author’s anti-Trump biases were left out of the FISA applications. Democrats had countered that the FBI acted appropriately, saying the DOJ and the FBI met the rigor, transparency, and evidentiary basis for probable cause.

The DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz probed how the unverified dossier compiled by Tump hating British spy Christopher Steele was used to secure the original warrant on Page in October 2016, along with other decisions.

  1. NEW: in a rare statement,US Attorney John Durham says:
    “Based on the evidence collected to date,&while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the IG that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”

      • I wish I could agree…but Christopher Wray’s interference proves your assertion incorrect. Trump should have fired him at the outset. He let THAT slide and it’s biting us all in the arse.

  2. Trump will be in our lives for one to five years. The damage the democrats have done to the FBI and DOJ will last long after that point. I will never again vote for any democrat.

  3. how to end the senate impeachment before it gets started….

    your honor(john Roberts):
    as an impeachment by the senate is a legal trial, it must follow all rules of law as set forth in the constitution, and previous trial law.
    we therefore move that:
    1) as the FBI, as shown by the horowits and barr investigations, lied to the FISA court to illegally obtain a warrant to investigate the Trump campaign, we move that all evidence obtained, directly and indirectly, by that investigation be ruled as inadmissible.

    2) as the rules for whistleblower complaints was improperly changed to allow second hand… hearsay… evidence..and that the congressional investigations held by the honorable Mr. Shiff were based on that hearsay evidence, that all evidence developed, directly or indirectly, by that inestigation, be ruled as inadmissible.

    if john Roberts follows the rule of law as he is sworn to, he will have no choice but to agree, and it’s over before the first witness is called

  4. LOL! How can the same absurd report claim Dems withheld exculpatory evidence AND claim it proved there was no political bias? Sheesh! You can’t make it up…but we all knew the fix was in…again…it always is.
