Skip to comments.FISA court blocks FBI agents linked to Carter Page probe from seeking wiretaps
Posted on 03/04/2020 11:05:38 PM PST by knighthawk
FBI officials involved in the wiretapping of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page have been blocked, at least temporarily, from appearing before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in regard to other cases, in rebuke that exceeded the remedial recommendations made by the monitor recently appointed by the court.
The decision by James E. Boasberg, chief judge of the secretive court created under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), comes as Congress faces a March 15 deadline on whether to renew three FBI national-security surveillance and investigative tools that were enacted after 9/11.
"FBI personnel under disciplinary review in relation to their work on FISA applications accordingly should not participate in drafting, verifying, reviewing, or submitting such applications to the Court while the review is pending," Boasberg wrote. "The same prohibition applies to any DOJ attorney under disciplinary review, as well as any DOJ or FBI personnel who are the subject of a criminal referral related to their work on FISA applications."

So the disciplinary review is still ongoing.
If you lie to a Federal court and get busted, your punishment will be rather different. It will be called “contempt of court” or “perjury”. Orwell said it best, some animals are more equal than others”.
At the time he had no idea he was describing future America.
Yeah, OK. You can still buy me a drink tonight at happy hour. Just have someone else sign the affidavit. Hey, how’s our buddy Jimbo doin’?
The important paragraph is #2. The FISA judge might want to look good to Congress to get them to renew the act.
I don’t trust any of them.
Better late than never, FISC justices, but, dayum you’re late!
I still have zero confidence in your integrity.
Not good enough
Impeach the Judge overseeing the FISA Court.
You mean it’s taken this many years for them to take any action at all? That’s unacceptable as far as I’m concerned.
FISA court just wants to look good right now since the FISA rules and regs are up for review and to show to the American people they are taking action which is B....
This “disbarment” is a good start.
The FISA court needs to be abolished.
The Judge overseeing the FISA court is JOHN ROBERTS!
Such is the pattern of tyranny in the hands of rats.
Turn inward the measures designed to deal with foreign threats.
Wow, that’s harsh...not.
Yep McCabe and Comey are not going to be able to appear before the FISA judge.

Ooooh. Such a harsh punishment. *sheesh* what a joke.
Likely all working together, and in this timely fashion, just to make the FISA court look better in the midst of the ongoing debate, as to its integrity and legitimacy!
Funny how this happens just when President Trump and the Congress are deciding whether the FISA court should even exist.
The FISA judges are every bit as corrupt as the FBI. We must put an end to secret courts, no exceptions.
