"Questionable judgment". For an intel type, that's the kiss of death. They live on their judgment.
In other words, these are probably people named in the assessment, having been given the chance to review it, and are now leaking to friendly reporters to soften the blow.
In other words -- the FBI had the assessment in hand prior to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th FISA renewals, and probably had it before the 1st application but think maybe that isn't provable. And they did not disclose it in the FISA application, but they think maybe they can stretch a vaguely worded footnote they put in to cover it.
