BREAKING: IN A STUNNING REBUKE OF JAMES COMEY, THE FISA COURT CALLS OUT THE FBI DIRECTOR FOR FRAUD THAT OCCURRED UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP
The country’s top secret court capable of issuing surveillance orders issued an unprecedented report Tuesday; accusing the FBI of presenting “misleading” intelligence to spy on at least one senior Trump campaign advisor.
“A secretive federal court accused the F.B.I. on Tuesday of misleading it about the factual basis for wiretapping a former Trump campaign adviser and ordered the bureau to propose changes in how investigators seek permission for some national security surveillance,” reports the New York Times.
“The frequency with which representations made by F.B.I. personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other F.B.I. applications is reliable,” Judge Rosemary Collyer wrote.
“This order responds to reports that personnel of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
provided false information to the National Security Division (NSD) of the Department of Justice,
and withheld material information from NSD which was detrimental to the FBI’s case, in
connection with four applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) for
authority to conduct electronic surveillance of a U.S. citizen named Carter W. Page. When FBI
personnel mislead NSD in the ways described above, they equally mislead the FISC,” adds the order.
