New Report Reveals How Many FISA Applications FISA Court Has Ordered FBI To Check; This Is Infuriating

(Tea Party PAC) – One of the biggest scandals and scams of all-time to come from our government is the fact that an active president’s administration spied on a presidential candidate in order to dig up dirt on him to ensure their candidate of choice would win the election.

This is precisely what the FBI did when it procured surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. You’d think now that these facts have been revealed, action would be taken to hold those responsible for such egregious violations of the Constitution and the American electoral system accountable.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case at all.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

The court that granted the FBI surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has only ordered that the FBI review all warrant applications related to one FBI attorney and not all FBI agents involved in misconduct, according to a report.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) earlier this month ordered the FBI to re-verify all previous Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications involving Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI attorney who falsified evidence in the FBI’s efforts to seek a renewed surveillance warrant against Page.

But according to a report by Fox News’s Gregg Re, the FISC did not order the FBI to recheck warrant applications involving other officials who made significant omissions and errors in warrant applications to surveil Page.

Fox News reports:

The FISC’s failure to request a comprehensive evaluation of previous submissions has stunned court-watchers who have questioned whether enough is being done to deter future misconduct by the FBI. In the past, the FISC has gone so far as to prohibit some FBI agents from appearing before the court after finding impropriety.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that Clinesmith had doctored an email that said Page was a source for the CIA to say that Page was “not” a source for the CIA.

However, Horowitz found many more examples of what the FISC itself has called “misconduct.”

In one example cited by Fox News, Horowitz found that an FBI supervisory special agent (SSA) responsible for ensuring that the bureau’s “Woods Procedures” were followed in this case — in that all factual assertions be independently verified and information contradicting those assertions be presented to the court — did not follow those procedures.

The SSA created a digital sub-file where reports by Christopher Steele, ex-British spy working for Fusion GPS, would be uploaded. Those reports were uncorroborated yet used to support the argument that Page was a foreign agent.

The SSA also suspected that Steele was a source for a news report that was included in warrant applications on Page, but he downplayed it in FISA applications. The SSA was also told by a State Department official that Steele was wrong about a claim but that information was not put in any FISA applications.

The SSA also failed to put in other information that was exculpatory for Page, such as Page denying to an FBI confidential human source (CHS) that he knew Russian officials Igor Sechin and Igor Divyekin, which Steele had alleged.

The SSA was also aware that Steele had provided his reports to the State Department, but the FISC was told that Steele “only provided this information to the business associate and the FBI.”

Despite this, the FISC’s Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer only ordered the FBI to identify and review all matters that involved the participation of Clinesmith, and advise whether his conduct has been “referred to the appropriate bar association(s) for investigation or possible disciplinary action,” according to Fox News.

Republicans in Congress have demanded reforms of the FISC and FISA, to prevent future abuse of the process.

One of the surefire ways to identify when leftist hypocrisy is to ask whether or not there would be extremely negative consequences for a Republican who participated in the same behavior as a Democrat. We already know the answer to that question in this case, don’t we?

Is President Trump not being impeached for supposedly attempting to dig up information on a political rival as part of an alleged “quid pro quo?” Why yes he is. One that evidence shows didn’t even happen.

Yet we have tangible proof that Obama spied on Trump during his campaign, and no one is demanding some form of justice be carried out here?

That’s hypocrisy at its finest.

  1. Americans need to give President Trump another 4 years in office, with a majority of 67 Senators, and more than 218 Representatives in the House, if we are to ever get major immigration laws in place, better healthcare insurance at much cheaper rates, rebuilding of our infrastructure, approving new trade agreements, and reducing our National Debt. Without those majorities, President Trump has never been able to get the people, he has chosen to work in his Administration through, Congress. It’s only because the Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell, has used the Nuclear Majority of 51 Senators to push through all of the Conservative Judges, that President Trump nominated. Right now there are hundreds of people that Congress has never approved into office, as a means of working against President Trump’s and Americans’ agenda.
    We need to do this, if we ever want to break the deadlock that Democrats have placed on America’s continued success. Also have to do this, to stop the Democrats from moving us to a Socialist/Communist lead Country; that opens our borders to anyone and everyone; removes our 2nd Amendment Gun ownership rights; continues to ruin schools; raises taxes through the roof to all of us, for their big government, total control of our lives.

  2. It’s all part of the *”Master Scam*!! Will there be any prosecutions – don’t “hold-your-breath”!! The US Judicial System is almost dead-and-buried…..If you are a DC *Trump Hating* DemonRat!!

    WHEN YOU HAVE A GREAT LEADER LIKE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP THEY AWAYS HAVE A FAMILY THAT SHOWS LEADERSHIP. I PEREDICT THAT THIS FAMILY
    WILL LEAD OUR GREAT COUNTY TO GREATNESS FOR A VERY LONG TIME. AT
    LEST UNTIL JESUS COMES. I PRAY EVERYDAY FOR HIM AND THE FAMILY.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA

  4. LOT’S OF LUCK ON GETTING ANY JUSTICE, THERE ARE TWO MANY DEEP STATE OPERATIVES IN OUR GOVERNMENT. WE HAVE TO MANY WHO ARE DEEP SEATED IN THERE WHO WILL TRY TO DESTROY ANYONE WHO TRIES TO EXPOSE THEM LET ALONE GET THEM OUT OF THERE. THANKS OBAMA AND HILLARY!

    • Does anyone have a clue how to totally kick unelected counter-productive and anti-admin people out and cancel their benefits? > Our Prez needs help with this decades-old problem.
      > Might also have to kick azz on SEIU, ASCMA and other unions too to open the exit door; ex. taxpayer go- to-hell perks and immunity,
      > He’s not the tough guy some people thought. His swinging inherited predecessor people door looks like he needs a corporate type personnel director for staff evaluation, hire, promote or fire.
      > If the Prez has a personnel director with a different title be sure of his/her agenda and people perception … not an exact science.
      > A trusted staff is a must when he is occupied almost 24/7 fighting opponent inquisition with a humongous daily presidential workload. What makes this tough is not all remaining Bush, Clinton and Obama’s holdovers are a drag on his objectives, so their proactive review is essential from bottom up.
