SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITEE CHAIRMAN LINDSEY GRAHAM RESUMES INVESTIGATION INTO FISA ABUSE
Written by Aaron Gonzalez
Lindsey Graham is wanting to resume the investigation of FISA abuse by the FBI and Department of Justice. He is requesting for records related to the Christopher Steele dossier.
He had sent a letter on Thursday to Attorney Genreal William Barr asking for all the documents from the FBI and DOJ in relation to the dossier that the FBI solely relied on to gain four FISA warrants against former campaign adviser for the Trump campaign, Carter Page.
James Comey also admitted he knew the dossier was unverified and salacious and it played the major role in applying for a FISA – the hardest warrant you can get.
All based on a document so phony, even the author himself Christopher Steele said in court proceedings in the UK that the dossier was not confirmed or verified and he referred to it as raw intelligence and the chances of some of it even being real were 50/50. Steele was fired for lying a leaking to the press but even so two FISA judges believed him to be credible.
Republicans were investigating whether the FBI and DOJ lied to the FISA Courts by relying on the dossier that has been proven to be nothing but a pack of lies. They also failed to inform the court that Christopher Steele was hired by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign.
Graham also asserts he wishes to investigate why the FBI opened up an investigation into the Trump team in 2016. He states the full representation of the facts to the FISA Court “may not have occurred with regard to the applications of the FISA warrants placed on Carter Page.
FISA SCANDAL EXPLAINED
THE US GOVERNMENT UNDER OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON ILLEGALLY SURVEILLED TRUMP TEAM IN ORDER TO STEAL AND SWAY THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
The investigations were opened by the FBI on July 31st 2016. The first FISA warrant issued on Carter Page was granted on October 21st 2016.
Lindsey Graham is also requesting the “Woods-File”. Which includes all evidence and material that were used to verify the FISA warrants against him.
We will wait and see how Attorney General William Barr will handle this. He replaced Rod Rosenstein - who actually signed off on the FISA warrants against Page who also happened to oversee the Mueller investigation into whether Trump colluded with the Russians during the campaign. Even though he knows the Democrats were the ones to do this within the dossier he signed off on?
Rod Rosenstein has been ignoring document requests and is slowing down this investigation. He leaves his post this month.
Graham states in the letter the deadline for these documents to be submitted is March 21st 2019.
Graham was optimistic of Barr during his confirmation process. He stated in January. “I am going to do a deep dive into the FISA issue, I think he’ll be apart of it".
