Mueller appeared before FISA court in 2002 to address FBI abuses: Report (Lou Dobbs & Jim Jordan)
Fox Business ^ | February 6, 2019 | Lou Dobbs

Posted on 02/11/2019 8:37:56 AM PST by Perseverando

Feb. 06, 2019 - 8:00 - Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) discusses President Trump’s State of the Union address and the report that special counsel Robert Mueller was called to appear before a FISA court to address FBI abuses in 2002. (8:01 minute video)


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Government; US: South Carolina; US: Virginia
KEYWORDS: dobbs; fbi; fisa; fisacourt; fisagate; goodlatte; gowdy; jimjordan; loudobbs; mueller; muellercorrupt; russiahoax; schiff
An outstanding 8 minute interview by Lou Dobbs with Jim Jordan on Mueller, FISA warrants, Adam Schiff, coverups and collusion within our government agencies.

I did short transcription of a discussion of Trey Gowdy's and Bob Goodlatte's investigation (or more appropriately named coverup) of DOJ and FBI FISA abuses.

My transcripton follows:

At the 6:50 minute mark Lou Dobbs slams former Representatives Trey Gowdy (SC) and Bob Goodlatte (VA) ..."two Chairmen, one Trey Gowdy of Oversight and Bob Goodlatte of Judiciary, they also misled the American people and failed to bring to conclusion with any effectiveness at all the investigation that was properly theirs. They betrayed, not the party, they betrayed the nation, in my opinion, with the awful conduct and the choice to do nothing in the face of vast political corruption of both the Department of Justice and the FBI."

Sorry, forgot to mention you will probably have to endure a 20 second commercial before the video.

Read an article on this last week. In this case headlines misleading in that what Mueller was called to explain in FISA issues happened mostly prior to his taking over. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen with him, but the article wasn’t the “bombshell” people portrayed it to be.

Gowdy and Goodlatte did diddly squat. Seems like they only stalled and made it look like they were investigating when they were doing zip.

Gowdy was a deep state hack who made sure the truth was buried.

Unfortunately, this is true. Mueller was only months into the job as FIB Director, and the FISA abuses were mostly in the aftermath of 9/11.

Right. The FBI abuses being looked at in 2002 were under Clinton’s Director Louis Freeh. Mueller was brand new to the job.

Bush League Republicans have made careers of betraying the country.

As was Goodlatte, apparently.

I sure won’t stick up for either Gowdy or Goodlatte, but what else could they have done? Refer to Justice Dept. who would have done nothing about it?

So there were abuses there prior to Mule Face getting the job and Mule Face was aware. Then he was also aware there were not any ramifications.

Its like when you kept the car out too late in high school. If your parents yelled at you, but still gave you the keys, you keep the car out late all the time. All this was for Mule Face to see that the court keeps track of things....but you don’t have to worry because there are no consequences. It is a courtesy heads up as to how the game is played.

Abuse of this court should have a life in prison tag behind it.

Why not? There would have been something on the record.

They could have been part of the solution and not part of the problem.

“There would have been something on the record.”

Have they produced a final report yet? I thought we were still waiting for it.

Gowdy has always been a hack prosecutor. Remember when Trump was vigorously defending himself in early 2017 against the leftist frame up that was “Russian collusion”. Gowdy sated that Trump’s vigorous assertions of his innocence was not consistent with the statements of an innocent man.

Total scum and indicative of the out of control and pervasive prosecutor abuse mindset we see with Mueller.
