Chairman Nunes Asks FISA Court For Transcripts…

Mid-January House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte sent a letter to FISA Court presiding judge Rosemary Collyer requesting all the documents presented by the DOJ in their application for a “Title-1” FISA surveillance warrant over Carter Page.  The House Judiciary Committee holds primary statutory oversight over the Justice Department and the FISA Court.

The DOJ has the Carter Page surveillance application (the DOJ also has the authority to declassify the FISA appliction).  However, other than Chairman Goodlatte, the DOJ would only permit one person from each side of the House Intel Committee (HPSCI)  to review the application. Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff were those two reviewers.

[*NOTE: We cannot confirm but strongly suspect – due to DOJ conduct and ongoing DOJ motives, Goodlatte wants to rule-out the possibility of two versions: an original application to the FISC, and an application the DOJ may have modified for congressional review. Hence, Goodlatte wants to see the application in the hands of the court.]

While Chairman Goodlatte is focused on the application, HPSCI Chairman Nunes is requesting the FISA Court transcript from the DOJ/FBI application hearing.  Nunes is seeking to understand how the “Title-1” application was presented to the court.

WASHINGTON – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is seeking transcripts from a top secret national security court regarding the FBI and Justice Department’s application for a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide, according to a congressional letter obtained by Fox News.

Writing to Rosemary M. Collyer, the presiding judge at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, Nunes asked for transcripts of “any relevant FISC hearings associated with the initial FISA application or subsequent renewals related to electronic surveillance of Carter Page.”

[…] Transcripts from the application hearings could speak to a central issue in the debate: to what extent the FBI and DOJ relied on the dossier.  (read more)

      You’ll be happy to know that the Patriot Act Section 215 gives the Department of Justice the responsibility of oversight over the FISA court.

      Interestingly, Section 215 requires the Attorney General to produce an annual report to congress on the number of searches and FISA cases. That number was redacted in 2017 reporting on 2016. Reading through a summary, it is interesting that the report could not give a “good faith estimate” of number of “queries” because some agencies did not retain the number of searches that they performed. A full report is required by the end of 2018. I’m holding my breath.

      The number of searches on call records of American citizens are horrifying huge.

          Exactly what were the language changes to the FISA that POTUS just signed into law? At some point near future i will have to read the damnable amendment bill and find out.

          Because a FISA warrant is just like a gun. It can be used by the white hats to defend the nation or the black hats to kill the nation. We must have something FISA like that allows going after crooks while protecting citizens…while making sure it is not abused (again). Just getting rid of FISA sounds nice….but then getting rid of the second amendment sounds nice to those who think gun control is the solution to whatever.

        On p. 28 it states that “During the calendar year 2016, The Government filed 1,477 final applications to FISC…Of these, 1,446 final filed applications included requests for authority to conduct electronic surveillance….The FISC did not deny any final filed applications in whole, or in part”

        This Report was submitted to Grassley, Goodlatte, Nunes and Burr.

      I absolutely enjoyed the article I read the other day with Hugh Hewitt and Devin Nunes. He interviewed Rep. Devin Nunes and wrote a transcript of their interview. Nunes spoke about the possibility of asking Supreme Court Justice, John Roberts (Chief Justice of the FISA Court), to come & speak to the committee about the FISA process and what occurred in this case. Sundance pointed out that Hugh was wrong. Justice Roberts CAN be compelled to do so. Hugh said he couldn’t.

      I actually think what Nunes did was a smokescreen to put fear into the FISA
      Judge to comply fully with the request from February 7th. The last thing in the world you want is the Chief Justice of the FISA Court be get involved.

      http://www.hughhewitt.com/house-intel-committee-chair-devin-nunes/

      From the article linked above:

      HH: Now the Chief Justice appoints the FISA judges. Have you had a chance to chat with him or any of the FISA judges about what went on at the FISA Court with regard to the Page application?

      DN: This is something that we grappled with, that we’ve been grappling with all through this investigation. We decided that we wanted to complete the FISA abuse portion before we approached the courts. Our next step with the courts is to make them aware, if they’re not aware already, that this happened by watching the news, so we will be sending a letter to the court. There is a, there’s a debate now into whether just send it to the Supreme Court or to send it to the FISA Court, and here’s why. And Hugh, you’d be a good guy to actually get your opinion on this. If, somehow, this case ends up at the Supreme Court, somehow, some way, by sending a letter to Roberts, do you conflict the Court?

      HH: They will not issue an advisory opinion. And since he appoints the judges and is the leader of Article III, I would think you would invite him to come and talk with the committee. You can’t compel him to come, obviously, but since he appoints the FISA judges, perhaps he would accept your invitation to a closed session. Would you welcome such an appearance by the Chief Justice before a closed session to discuss the FISA process?

      DN: So this is something that we have, like I said, we have thought a lot about this. And the answer is we don’t know the correct way to proceed because of the separation of powers issue. So as you know, you know, we have, I’m not aware of, I’m aware of members of Congress going to the Supreme Court and having coffee with the judges, just to shoot the bull. I’m aware of, you know, dinners where congressmen have been with Supreme Court justices. But I’m not aware of any time where a judge has, for lack of a better term, testified before the Congress.

      Even a year may be a short time. This wheels of justice move slowly. And often, even when you think you have it all sealed up, it doesn’t go the way you hope. I wouldn’t hope for much in the way of indictments, let alone prison time. If anyone does go to prison, it won’t be at the top level. Someone will fall on their sword. It’s always the flunkies who are punished. People like the Clintons and Obamas never pay a price and don’t think for a minute that that has changed. What we can hope for is not so much that people will be held accountable and punished, but that it will change things for the future. Never forget that there really is no justice in this life. It only comes when people have to face God. Here on earth, even in America, the system is so corrupt and dysfunctional that often the right things don’t happen.

        That still does not mean anything. An impeachment is just the indictment of an elected official. It still has to go to the Senate for trial, and that takes a vote of 2/3 of the Senate to convict a President who has been impeached.

        Remember that Bill Clinton was impeached and did not miss a beat in his Presidential duties. In fact, there is no President in the history of our country that has ever left office over an impeachment.

    I believe that what DOJ may have modified for congressional review (if this speculation is true) is a removal of Michael Cohen’s alleged visit to Prague that has been proven wrong. In the transcript prior to voting on the Minority’s memo, there’s commentary stating that the Cohen allegation was not in the FISA application/affidavit (see pg 20):

    The Cohen /Prague allegation imo proves they were using signal intelligence database search illegally, by searching for Michael Cohen with his DOB. They didn’t count on the fact that there were two Michael Cohen’s with the same DOB.

      Rachel Brand and Rod Rosenstein were Trump appointees. Let’s just hope that by now he has better advisors. I’m sure it was the transition team who made those recommendations to him. And Rachel Brand looked good on paper. Federalist Society, I think. SMH.

        Until you hit the work she did for the COC and Ben Wittes/WaPo/Brookings loves her, so there’s that.

          WSB right. Following tells me we’re better off without Brand as well.

          “After leaving the Justice Department, Brand worked for three years at WilmerHale.[2] In 2008, John McCain, then a candidate for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, named Brand to his Justice Advisory Committee, which would have recommended judicial nominees to McCain were he elected.[14]”

          Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (2012–2017)[edit]

          “In 2012, Brand was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB).[15] She was confirmed on August 2, 2012 to a term ending January 29, 2017.[16]

          Brand dissented from several recommendations included in the PCLOB’s 2014 report on NSA’s bulk metadata collection program under section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act. She declined to join in the Board’s view that the program was illegal as a statutory matter and argued that, in policy terms, it struck a justifiable balance between privacy and national security and, as such, should not be discontinued.[17] The Board, for its part, had recommended the program’s termination.
          term ending January 29, 2017.[16]”

      Rumor has it that Rosenstein will recommend that Eric Holder take her place

    Drip, drip, drip. The deep state is going stir crazy as we continue to slowly but surely peel back every layer to their corruption.

    Most gloat worthy is that we’re going after every enabling govt worker, rendering their entire career moot. We’ll get the politicians too, but first we make a severe example of bureaucrats that would be kings. Others will think twice, then think again before attempting to collude with anyone that would usurp the constitution.

    I believe, it’s important to point out that if the FIAC member(s) are involved in the corruption. Then Goodlatte can not expect. to see the transcript released or a pure underacted transcript.

    Goodlatte action, will at best lower the probability of a “fake transcript” being presented to him.

    “[*NOTE: We cannot confirm but strongly suspect – due to DOJ conduct and ongoing DOJ motives, Goodlatte wants to rule-out the possibility of two versions: an original application to the FISC, and an application the DOJ may have modified for congressional review. Hence, Goodlatte wants to see the application in the hands of the court.]”

    Side note: the FBI & DOJ subordinates knew allot about this. I would fire so many at the HQ FBI & DOJ one time “it would go down in history”.
