OUCH: FISA Court Shreds FBI in Rare Announcement

In an extremely rare move on Tuesday, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court shredded the FBI for their “mistakes” that they made while applying for a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign aid Carter Page.

  1. “The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above. The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” federal Judge Rosemary Collie hammered.

The announcement came after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz dropped his long awaited FISA report which showed the FBI under James Comey’s leadership, violated many rules to frame then candidate Donald Trump.

“The Department of Justice (Department) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) undertook this review to examine certain actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department during an FBI investigation opened on July 31, 2016, known as “Crossfire Hurricane,” into whether individuals associated with the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign were coordinating, wittingly or unwittingly, with the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Horowitz’s report starts.

The FISA report was so damning that even Comey himself is admitting he was wrong. During an interview on Fox News on Sunday, Comey shockingly admitted that he was “wrong” for being overly confident by abusing a FISA warrant to investigate Trump aid Carter Page.
