Skip to comments.DOJ review finds 'material errors or omissions' in 2019 FISA applications
Posted on 04/12/2020 6:27:21 PM PDT by bitt
The Justice Department and FBI admitted surveillance applications in 2019 contained serious flaws in an update to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court about corrective actions being taken following a scathing watchdog report in December.
Thirty accuracy reviews conducted by the DOJs National Security Division found material errors or omissions in two FISA applications across two field offices, according to a 54-page filing unsealed this week.
The Justice Department said it is still compiling the final results of those field office accuracy reviews, but so far determined one FISA application contained two material errors, while another FISA application had some material omissions. The government said it reported the errors and omissions to the FISA court and assessed that, notwithstanding these errors or omissions, probable cause existed to find that the targets were acting as an agent of a foreign power.
Assistant Attorney General John Demers stated that although accuracy reviews, which involve travel and in person meetings, are currently suspended due to Coronavirus, we will restart them as soon as we can with a 50 percent increase in oversight positions and increased rigor.

Total BS. No mistakes were made. Everything was a deliberate attempt to put a legal veneer on an illegal spying operation, and an attempt to overthrow the elected president. The FBI and CIA are criminal organizations at this point. I can accept some individuals may have done the crime, but when the agency covers it up, they’re fully corrupt
So mistakes/whatevers were made in 2019, when the good guys were in charge of the FBI? ???
NSD members were some of the biggest coup pushers.
OMG so shocking!.........Nothing will be done.
One of the material omissions was that he was described as a former U.S. Senator, but not a former Vice President.
No mistakes were made. Fed-RICO spinn a “legal veneer”
These boys and girls are in late stage, terminal back biting.. Danger levels are max.
Shut these FISA courts down entirely. Theres no reforming them.
All should remember that the Chief Justice put a Democrat Trump hater in as the watch-dog for further criminal and political abuse prevention — this is what we get.
