The Intel Committee is asking the president to declassify the Carter Page FISA applications. This is interesting. But, I think it’s necessary because, although a lot of people may not be aware of it, there is a federal law that forbids asking for a FISA warrant using unverified information.
That is exactly what the FBI and DOJ did by using the bogus Hillary dossier. We are talking about major indictments for some pretty powerful people under Obama. This is not just about punishing the guilty, although that is important. By sending these people to prison for a significant amount of time, will be a warning to future lawless administrations like Obama’s.
Fox News reported:
“Because DOJ (Department of Justice) and FBI continue to obstruct the Committee’s investigation, it is time to put the facts in the public domain,” the letter, dated June 14, states.
The 13 Republicans on the committee, including committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., state in the letter that the declassification should be consistent “with the need to protect intelligence sources and methods,” adding that the declassification will “enable the public to understand the DOJ’s and FBI’s basis for obtaining the FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals.”
“… [W]e respectfully request that you declassify and release publicly, and in unredacted form, pages 10-12 and 17-34, along with all associated footnotes, of the third renewal of the FISA application on Mr. Page,” the letter states. “That renewal was filed in June 2017 and signed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.”
The letter states, that on its face, the bureau’s reliance on the dossier appears to violate strict, internal FBI rules.
“The Committee’s investigative findings include DOJ’s and FBI’s use of an unverified dossier of memoranda that was not subjected to proper U.S. government verification and was not handled according to FBI procedures.”
Drill them, drill them then chill them.
