FBI Director Christopher Wray told the federal surveillance court in a letter Friday that he deeply regrets the bureaus many errors in the process to obtain surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The FBI has the utmost respect for this Court, and deeply regrets the errors and omissions identified by the OIG, Wray wrote in a letter to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).
A judge on the FISC ordered the FBI on Dec. 17 to respond by Friday with a roadmap on how the bureau plans to address the problems identified in a Justice Department inspector generals (IG) report regarding applications for warrants to wiretap Page.
The IG report, released on Dec. 9, identified 17 errors and omissions that the FBI made in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications against Page. The report said FBI agents withheld information that undercut the bureaus suspicion that Page worked as an agent of Russia while he served on the Trump team. Agents also failed to disclose information that raised questions about the credibility and motives of Christopher Steele, a former British spy Democrats hired to investigate President Donald Trump.
The FBI relied heavily on Steeles infamous dossier in the Page FISA applications.
Wray, who took over the FBI more than a month after the fourth and final Page FISA had been approved, said that one remedy he plans to implement will be to use the Page FISA as a case study in training sessions that FBI personnel will be required to undergo.
FBI personnel will be instructed on the errors and omissions that were made in the Carter Page FISA applications and associated processes, Wray said.

Wray set April 30 as a deadline to complete the training.
What have some of us been saying since 2017?
The "new training" garbage will be their "solution", instead of actual arrests and prosecutions of the coup plotters.
Trump must fire Wray.
“”””’and deeply regrets the errors and omissions identified by the OIG”””””””””””””
An “error” is accidentally putting your shoes on the wrong feet.
What the fbi did was straight up criminal.
Karma to ensue long term.
Sure, just “many errors in the process.” That’s all it was, nothing nefarious. If you say so, Wray, then I’m satisfied.
I’m using that excuse during the next speeding ticket write-up. Should work.
Wray left a $6 million per year job at King & Spalding to selflessly head the FBI for $200k.
Its just a coincidence that Rod Rosenstein has just joined King & Spalding!
Ah the old training dodge. Similar to when the DOJ had to train all their attorneys in Brady procedures after Senator Stevens conviction was overturned because they hid exculpatory evidence. LTG Mike Flynn can attest to how effective that training was.
The only mistake they made was getting caught. That’s what this says.
I could not believe he didn’t ask Trey Gowdy to be the Director.
An insincere Friday dump.
The same FBI staffers probably wrote the fraudulent FISA application and this CYA letter. What a sick joke.
How about everyone involved regret spending 10 years in prison?
Oh but I see now that the court set the deadline for Friday, so he has plausible deniability.
These people are unrepentant criminals.
They need to be jailed.
A reasonable start:
ALL of the FBI creeps chip in to make full monetary restitution to Carter Page, Manifort, Papadop, Mike Caputo, Roger Stone, Flynn and anyone who incurred expense to defend themselves.
Then, they launch public campaigns to free those who are in prison or will be in prison.
Then, they flip on all of the participating lackeys.
Then, they live out the rest of their miserables lives at Club Gitmo, or the island of Saint Helena
if a bank robber deeply regretted’ his mistakes would the FBI give him a pass?
These weren’t ‘mistakes’ they were intentional acts by FBI thugs who thought their ‘great intellect’ allowed them to choose the President of the United States.
Personally I feel they should be put to death for this coup attempt.
OK! Now, whos going to jail?
Wray is a sociopath in action.
He needs to be arresting those who lied to the court, not apologizing on their behalf.
