The just-released “FISA memo” did more than simply detail Obama administration abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by politicized, ranking members of the FBI and Justice Department. It also named names.
The memo noted that on Oct. 21, 2016 the DOJ and FBI sought and received a FISA probable cause order authorizing electronic surveillance on Team Trump campaign official Carter Page. The officials relied on the bogus, unsubstantiated “Trump dossier” in large part to secure the warrant, but also, the memo says, officials relied on media reports from over the summer making allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, none of which have ever been proven.
As CBS News reported:
The FBI and DOJ obtained three FISA warrants targeting Page and three FISA renewals, according to the memo. Then-FBI Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one, according to the memo. The memo says then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of the DOJ.
There’s more. The memo clearly states that the dossier was a political document — opposition research commissioned by Fusion GPS and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and that everyone involved in approving the FISA court applications knew the document was political research, not hard-and-fast intelligence gathered by legitimate U.S. spies.
So Comey, Rosenstein, Yates, McCabe, and others were clearly in on the conspiracy to frame President Donald J. Trump and his campaign with a bogus “Russia collusion” story.
Former FBI Director Comey, we know, has tried to implicate the president in obstruction of justice during testimony before Congress.
Rosenstein, who remains in his position and was put in charge of this hoax after Attorney General Jeff Sessions foolishly recused himself from it, was the Deep State operative who appointed special counsel Robert Mueller — to investigate a hoax!
Yates, you may recall, was the Justice Department official who refused to defend Trump’s first travel ban.
McCabe, who until Monday was still in his post as the FBI’s deputy director, was the gatekeeper in all of this. And enabler.
The president clearly has reason to be upset. Whatever his next moves are, he will be justified in making them.
