Secret FISA Court Throws FBI Under the Bus for ‘Basic and Fundamental Errors’ in Warrant Request

The various organs of the deep state are no longer working in lockstep.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court.

Collyer ordered the FBI to provide a sworn statement to the court by Jan. 10 detailing how they intend to overhaul their process making surveillance applications to ensure an abuse of this magnitude does not happen again.

The order has been issued in the wake of an explosive report from the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.

Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”

“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.

“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.

Former FBI Director James Comey has been forced to publicly eat crow following the release of the report as well.

“He’s right, I was wrong,” Comey said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” to host Chris Wallace, referring to Page.

“I was overconfident in the procedures that the FBI and Justice had built over 20 years. I thought they were robust enough. It’s incredibly hard to get a FISA,” he added.

President Trump is already gloating over the fact that his enemies have egg on their faces with their corrupt dealings finally being acknowledged by the fake news media.

President Trump has much to gloat about these days with his poll numbers rising and impeachment hysteria failing to captivate the public. The deep state’s credibility has never been lower, as different tentacles of the intelligence community point fingers at each other.

College Republicans Executive Director Condemning America First Chapters is a Longtime Never-Trumper

Why are these people in leadership positions in the GOP?

Published

on

An executive director of the College Republican National Committee who has taken to condemning America First chapters in the light of a letter from the chapter presidents calling upon President Donald Trump to end the H-1B and OPT cheap labor programs has a lengthy track record of opposing Trump, including taking a stringent ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 presidential election.

CRNC Executive Director Benjamin Rajadurai slighted the College Republican chapters that signed the letter calling for an immigration freeze on Friday tweet, falsely claiming that only seven chapters signed the missive. Chapter representatives from more than twenty CR organizations across the country signed the letter to President Trump calling for the President to end the worker visa programs.

Rajadurai appears keen to dismiss the activism of the chapters, despite considerable support for their vision of immigration restriction across broad demographics of Americans. However, it appears he has a very tenuous claim on credibility when it comes to conservative policy, considering the CRNC executive took a strong ‘Never Trump’ stance during the 2016 election. Some of Rajadurai’s tweets indicate he was resolute in opposing Trump at the time:

The Massachusetts man apparently was a Jeb! supporter. Why is he even serving as a Republican Party official if he sees the Republican President as an ‘idiot?’

He saw Donald Trump as ‘racist’ at the time.

He saw Trump’s nomination as a great disappointment.

College Republicans and conservatives across the country expressed great disappointment to Big League Politics when learning that a national CRNC executive is a stringent Never Trumper who steadfastly opposes the conservative ideals they seek to promote.

Christian Secor of America First Bruins expressed disappointment with the alignment of CRNC national leadership.

I was always aware that there were problems in the GOP but I never could have imagined to what extent the Republican Party was selling out the American people. Conservative students from all over America are sick and tired of the way the so called “conservative” movement has been ran and, thankfully, the American people are ready for true conservatism, populism, and tradition, with young people leading the charge.” Rajadurai has endorsed an attempt to de-recognize and replace the prevailing California College Republicans federation with an establishment group.

The spirit of the Republican constituency was overwhelmingly America First, and Never Trumpers were left behind. College Republicans are increasingly having their nationalistic brand of conservatism stifled by these very same Never Trumpers at the CRNC,” said Eoan Harrison of the Santa Clara University CR’s.

Marshall Whinney, of the Bull Moose Party at Penn State, described what he had seen as pervasive Never Trump influence throughout national CRNC institutions.

Our organization came into being after our College Republicans held a secret vote against endorsing Trump in 2016 while classes were not yet in session. Our interactions with like-minded individuals across the country have revealed an alarmingly consistent pattern of fraud being used to keep Never Trumpers in office at many Republican student organizations.

Republicans striving to implement the Make America Great Again agenda that President Donald Trump campaigned and won upon have no choice but the question the legitimacy of official Republican Party institutions that appear to have little to no regard for the President himself.
