    FISA Memo -All Legal/Gov Documents

    The long awaited MEMO from the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence

    Go to first new post The Republican FISA memo release

    FBI FISA memo







    Purpose

    This memorandum provides Members an update on significant facts relating to the
    Committee’s ongoing investigation into the Department of Justice (DOI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and their use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Our findings, which are detailed below, 1) raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain DOJ and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), and 2) represent a troubling breakdown of legal processes established to protect the American people from abuses related to the FISA process.

    Investigation Update

    On October 21, 2016, DO] and FBI sought and received a FISA probable cause order
    (Q under Title VH) authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page fiom the FISC. Page is a U.S. citizen who served as a volunteer advisor to the Trump presidential campaign. Consistent with requirements under FISA, the application had to be first certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI. It then required the approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General (DAG), or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division.

    The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA
    renewals from the FISC. As required by statute (50 U.S.C. §l805(d)(l)), a FISA order on an
    American citizen must be renewed by the FISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a
    separate finding of probable cause. Then-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Then-DAG Sally Yates, then-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DO]. ‘

    Due to the sensitive nature of foreign intelligence activity, FISA submissions (including
    renewals) before the FISC are classified. As such, the public’s confidence in the integrity of the FISA process depends on the court’s ability to hold the government to the highest standard—particularly as it relates to surveillance of American citizens. However, the FISC’s rigor in protecting the rights of Americans, which is wfls of surveillance orders, is necessarily dependent on the govelnment’s production to the court of all material and relevant facts. This should include information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA

    application that is known by the government. In the case of Carter Page, the govemment had at least four independent opportunities before the FISC to accurately provide an accounting of the relevant facts. However, our findings indicate that, as described below, material and relevant information was omitted.

    1) The “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele dossier) on behalf of the
    Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign formed an
    essential part of the Carter Page FISA application. Steele was a longtime FBI source who
    was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie
    and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trun-1p’s ties
    to Russia.

    a) Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or
    reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding
    Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then
    known to senior DOJ and FBI officials.

    b) The initial FISA application notes Steele was Working for a named U.S. person, but
    does not name Fusion GPS and principal Glenn Simpson, who was paid by a U.S. law
    firm (Perkins Coie) representing the DNC (even though it was known by DOJ at the
    time that political actors were involved with the Steele dossier). The application does
    not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of and paid by the DNC and
    Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the
    same information.

    2) The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo
    News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow.
    ~ This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information
    leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses
    that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in
    British court filings that he met with Yahoo News—and several other outlets4in
    September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s
    initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D.C. in
    2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS Where this matter was discussed.

    a) Steele was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines
    as the most serious of violations~—an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his
    relationship with the FBI in an October 30, 2016, Mother Jones article by David
    Com. Steele should have been terminated for his previous undisclosed contacts with
    Yahoo and other outlets in September—before the Page application was submitted to

    the F ISC in Oct0ber—but Steele improperly concealed from and lied to the FBI about
    those contacts.

    b) Steele’s numerous encounters with the media violated the cardinal rule of source
    handling—maintaining confidentiality-and demonstrated that Steele had become a
    less than reliable source for the FBI.

    3)Before and after Steele was terminated as a source, he maintained contact With DO] via
    then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, a senior DO] official Who Worked
    closely with Deputy Attorneys General Yates and later Rosenstein. Shortly after the
    election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele.
    For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-
    candidate Trump When Steele said he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get
    elected and was passionate about him not being president.” This clear evidence of
    Steele’ s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI f1les—but
    not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.


    a) During this same time period, Ohr’s Wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in
    the cultivation of opposition research on Trump. Ohr later provided the FBI with all
    of his Wife‘s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via
    Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably
    concealed from the FISC.

    According to the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill
    Priestap, corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its “infancy” at the time of the initial
    Page F ISA application. After Steele was tenninated, a source validation report conducted
    by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally
    corroborated. Yet, in early January 2017, Director Comey briefed President-elect Trump
    on a summary of the Steele dossier, even though it Was—according to his June 2017
    testimony—“salaci0us and unverified.” While the FISA application relied on Steele’s
    past record of credible reporting on other unrelated matters, it ignored or concealed his
    anti-Trump financial and ideological motivations. Furthermore, Deputy Director
    McCahe testified before the Committee in Deceniber 2017 that no surveillance warrant
    would have been sought from the FISC Without the Steele dossier information.

    The Page FISA application also mentions information regarding fellow Trump campaign
    advisor George Papadopoulos, but there is no evidence of any cooperation or conspiracy
    between Page and Papadopoulos. The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening
    of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok.
    Strzok was reassigned by the Special Counsel’s Office to FBI Human Resources for
    improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page (no known relation to
    Carter Page), where they both demonstrated a clear bias against Trump and in favor of
    Clinton, whom Strzok had also investigated. The Strzok/Lisa Page texts also reflect
    extensive discussions about the investigation, orchestrating leaks to the media, and
    include a meeting with Deputy Director McCabe to discuss an “insurance” policy against
    President Trump’s election.

    A demonstration of how far we have fallen as a culture. That some anybody can hook up a camera, make a YouTube video, and have some other anybody share it on the internet as if it is fact.

    It's what happen though. Shows you the level the DNC would go to win the election. Shows you how people who were anti-trump at the FBI used their powers to spy on the campaign.

    That is it in a nutshell

    You don’t like the young man or his intelligent commentary. Yet, You offer nothing except an insult and a non-debate “no, it’s not” comment. Why are you here? Don’t clutter my thread with nonsense.

    Like Comey, Strzok, McCabe and others - its nice that they all get to walk away with life time tax funded pensions. Its also great that what ever they do - instead of being prosecuted for abusing power or their tax funded work time for political reasons - they get a pass and leave.
    I am quite sure theirs the majority of FBI agents that are sick of watching the party players walk away laughing. The same party players who are installed for political reasons - not personal work achievements. Those who get passed over from promotions to make way for patronage party climbers.

    Comey was flipped years ago - he learned to serve the dominate party early on:

    1996: Future FBI Director Comey wants to charge Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater investigation.
    Wait till you read his reasoning for not charging Hillary back then - almost word for word the same reasoning as he used in the email scandal. !!!!!!!!!

    4248,FMD, this time it’s different. Have you been reading the Q posts? We have the Military Intelligence Community and a President that are dedicated to restoring America from the depths of ruin from years of corruption and destruction from within and without. This was truly a pivotal election as evidenced by the devious actions of the opposition that we are just beginning to know and understand. Q/military intel will reveal all of the dirty secrets that weren’t supposed to be known. It has to be done this way, because, MSM is in collusion with the “cabal” and controls the narrative. It’s a fight that can only be won with knowledge of the truth. The truth will all come out.
