IG report shows FBI continues to abuse FISA process


Just The NewsThe FBI under Director Chris Wray continues to fail to follow its rules and procedures for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants in the aftermath of the Russia fiasco, jeopardizing American civil liberties, the Justice Department's internal watchdog warned Thursday.

In all, Inspector General Michael Horowitz found more than 200 FISA warrant applications with missing information or documentation that violated the bureau's so-called Woods Procedures between 2015 and 2019, making clear reforms that Wray put into place have not solved problems that first surfaced in the 2016 election cycle, particularly a FISA warrant against Trump adviser Carter Page during the now-discredited Russia probe.

"The FBI’s Woods Procedures are designed to ensure FISA applications are 'scrupulously accurate' and require agents to document support for all factual assertions contained in them," Horowitz reported. "However, our audit found numerous instances where this did not occur."

If you're wondering why nothing will change, Sundance explains it. The same people shuffle around into different positions to protect each other. The entire system is corrupt and must be destroyed.
