The FBI’s handling of the applications to wiretap Carter Page “was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor” expected of the bureau, Judge Rosemary Collyer of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court wrote in a public opinion released Tuesday.
“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 judge ordered the FBI to outline by Jan. 10, 2020, any changes it has made or plans to make to improve surveillance allowed under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA.
There are already procedures in place to prevent abuses of the court.
New and improved procedures are NOT needed.
What is needed, is to ARREST the people that broke the law.
