"A Ridiculous Choice" – FISA Court Sparks Firestorm, Appoints Conflicted, Anti-Trump Attorney To Oversee FBI Fixes

“Trump has to go…”

Sharyl Attkisson, via,  reports that on Friday, the FISA Court posted an order naming anti-Trump lawyer David Kris to “assist the court” in assessing the FBI’s response to the court-ordered cleanup of lapses and abuses identified by Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz.

In a report released last month, the IG found FBI officials violated rules, policies and law in their applications to wiretap former Trump volunteer Carter Page. Horowitz testified the FISA surveillance process needs to be fixed “from top to bottom.”

To some, the appointment of Kris is as mysterious as why the FISA Court’s judges failed to flag the FBI abuses on their own.

In social media posts, Kris has called Republican Congressman Devin Nunes “a politicized, dishonest [Intelligence Community] overseer who attempts to mislead.”

“The Nunes memo was dishonest,” said Kris.

“And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy.” 

He tweeted that Trump and his advisors should be “worried” that the “walls are closing in on him” regarding the Mueller probe.

Kris also bought into the now-disproven conspiracy theory about Trump colluding with Russia and Putin.

But even more importantly, since that time, Kris has advocated for President Trump’s removal.

Kris’s vocal opinions on President Trump and politics present numerous, obvious conflicts of interest

One can be excused for believing the FISA Court is corrupt. It failed in its duty to thoroughly vet applications to spy on someone. It failed to charge anyone for perjury. It is an absolute disgrace. Close it down.

PFFT, ain’t no American institution yet left untouched by corruption. It’s just a Potomac Village left of that which the Founding Fathers envisioned.

Kris Kringle: “essential elements of our democracy.”

You mean the ones that look like a lump of coal in the shape of a middle finger to the American people?

Feels kinda creepy being in spontaneous harmony with the never-Trumpers.

Almost as creepy as being in bed with ISIS, but that really never bothered either camp.

Obama/Clinton shipped them Saudi arms in Libya and Libyan arms in Syria and Trump/Pompeo murdered their most effective eradicator. With frienemies like that, who needs friends?
