Skip to comments.IG report lays out compelling evidence FBI misled FISA court in Russia case, sources say
Posted on 12/09/2019 9:21:30 AM PST by bitt
The Justice Department inspector generals report into the Russia collusion investigation lays out incontrovertible evidence that the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court through false information and omissions, according to sources familiar with its findings.
The evidence that the judges were misled is so sweeping that it could provide grounds, if Attorney General William Barr chooses, to withdraw the FBIs application for the surveillance warrants that began in October 2016 to target ex-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the sources added.
Such a move, while mostly legally symbolic since the probe is long since closed, would still amount to a resounding rebuke to an FBI probe that the bureau, Democrats and their media allies relentlessly defended.
A spokeswoman for the Justice Department did not respond to a request for comment on Monday morning.
The evidence of false statements, false information, deception through omission is going to raise an important debate about FISA, one source told me.
The report is expected to conclude the FBIs decision to open a counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaigns possible ties to Russia in 2016 was adequately predicated but that its subsequent reliance on the so-called Steele dossier and execution of FISA warrants to assist the probe were problematic.

a resounding rebuke
But no indictments.
“would still amount to a resounding rebuke to an FBI “
Oh. A “resounding rebuke”. That’s gonna hurt. /s/
No link to IG report.
Hopefully Durham would indict!!!
The IG doesnt have the authority to make indictments
Hello, misleading the FISA court is a crime is it not?
That’s what we used to call LYING...................
Help! Help! I’m being rebuked! I’m being rebuked!
Now, who is going to investigate the investigator of the investigators?
Sentenced to 40 lashes with an ostrich feather...................
“Misled” is such a cute little word.
Whatd we expect from the most EVIL administration in the history of the republic?
Obama, Obama, Biden, Clinton, Clinton, Holder, Lerner, Kerry, Lynch, Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Page, Strzok, etc., etc.,...not counting the propagandists, the indoctrinators, the robed mullahs and other ancillary liars/criminals Gruber, etc., etc..
It takes some criminals to raze a republic.
The lie is the weapon used most often by the criminal.
No truth, no justice. No justice, no America.
Will it be characterized as an “unfortunate error” by the FBI? Or will it be declared possible fraud upon the court?
The report should have been out by now.
“Hello, misleading the FISA court is a crime is it not?”
Rats never INTEND to commit a crime, so it’s ok. /s

Now, we wait and pray for Durham Report.
So sick of this chit.
