One would think that after the Trump debacle, the FBI would have tightened up its FISA application process.
That, however, does seem to be the case.
An investigation by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed more than 200 errors in the applications reviewed.
Get It Together
The Trump Russian collusion investigation has turned into a complete mess for Democrats and the DOJ.
Not only did they not succeed in removing Trump from office, but now fingers are pointing at Hillary and the FBI is in a heap of trouble.
We know the FISA warrant process was flawed in the Trump investigation, but it goes much deeper than that.
The IG investigation looked at 7,000 FISA applications, finding 183 with errors, which included factual details being misconstrued.
Twenty-nine of the applications were of particular interest, having hundreds of errors alone.
Horowitz, in the report, states, “The OIG initiated this audit to determine whether the significant errors found in the December 2019 OIG report were indicative of a more widespread problem with the Woods Procedures compliance.
“Given the FBI’s reliance upon its Woods Procedures to help ensure the accuracy of its FISA applications, we believe the missing Woods Files represent a significant lapse in the FBI’s management of its FISA program.”
The FBI responded, “The FBI’s FISA authorities are indispensable national security tools and a vital means of accomplishing our mission of protecting the American people from national security threats.
“But our mission is also to uphold the Constitution, and the FBI remains committed to executing our FISA process with the unwavering rigor it requires.”
I have another recommendation… fire Director Wray and let’s get some fresh blood at the top of the agency that can bring the FBI back to being the prestigious law enforcement entity it was.
We have far too many amazing people in that agency to allow leadership to continue to drive its reputation into the ground.
