In Stunning Public Rebuke, FISA Court Slams FBI, Says Worried About 'Other Warrants'

…calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable…”

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court slammed the FBI on Tuesday in a rare public statement over the agency’s handling of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page’s warrant application and subsequent renewals, according to the Wall Street Journal.

In order to appreciate the seriousness of that misconduct and its implications, it is useful to understand certain procedural and substantive requirements that apply to the government’s conduct of electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes,” reads the statement.

The punchline: “The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the hieghtned duty of candor” required by federal investigators, adding “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,” wrote the court, which called the recent watchdog report from the DOJ’s Inspector General “troubling.”

Who are they kidding? FISA Court’s just as compromised as the OPCW, the JIT and every other agency that the deep state octopus can manage to wrap its tentacles around,

Oh, and here’s a little reminder. Newsweek’s journalist who resigned over failure to publish his article on the corrupted OPCW, stated that Newsweek preferred Bellingcat’s reporting to Reuters.

Given that Bellingcat is an Atlantic Council creation and Newsweek is another Atlantic Council creation, seems to me that said journalist should have done his due dilligence before signing on.

ALL these stories are GIANT “nothing burgers”, wishful thinking. Comey must be LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF when he sees headlines like “Comey better lawyer up”. Pure fantasy. If the fact that the reps don’t intend to call any witnesses in the impeachment trail hasn’t told the tale, then I don’t really know WHAT it will take for people to WTFU. And Barr is in the bag for the deep state, cripes, look at his career over the last 30 years!! All this hysteria is just reaching the point where its laughable. Or would be, if it wasn’t so profoundly sad.
