Rank and Vile – DOJ Inspector General Identifies 93 Percent Non-Compliance Within FISA Review – Issues So Bad IG Presents Interim Report Before Reviewing Details…

After the DOJ Offfice of Inspector General (OIG), Michael Horowitz, presented his December 2019 findings of the FISA application used against U.S person Carter Page, the gross deficiencies and intentional fraud were so extensive the IG said he was going to review a sample of FISA applications to identify if the fraud and abuse was widespread.

The OIG began reviewing FISA applications from eight field offices (the proverbial “rank and file”).  The OIG selected 29 FISA applications from those field offices over the period of October 2014 to September 2019.  Additionally, every field office and the DOJ-NSD generate internal “Accuracy Reviews”, or self-checks on FISA applications; so the OIG inspected 42 of the accuracy review FISA files to determine if they were compliant.

The results were so bad the IG produced an interim memorandum to the DOJ and FBI [pdf link here].  Within the 17-page-memo the IG notifies Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray that all of the claimed FISA processes, in every field office, are grossly deficient, and in most cases there is zero compliance with FISA standards.  The IG memorandum is presented before the IG even looks at the specifics of the non-compliance.

Below is the report/memorandum.  Additionally I am summarizing the stunning top-lines identified by the IG memo:

  • The IG reviewed 29 FISA applications, surveillance warrants, used against U.S. persons.
  • The 29 FISA applications were from eight different field offices.
  • The FISA applications were from Oct/2014 through Sept/2019.
  • All of the FISA applications reviewed were approved by the FISA court.

The ‘Woods File’ is the mandatory FBI evidence file that contains the documentary proof to verify all statements against U.S. persons that are contained in the FISA application.  Remember, this is a secret court, the FISA applications result in secret surveillance and wiretaps against U.S. persons outside the fourth amendment.

♦ Within the 29 FISA applications reviewed, four were completely missing the Woods File.  Meaning there was zero supportive evidence for any of the FBI claims against U.S. persons underpinning the FISA application.  [ie. The FBI just made stuff up]

♦ Of the remaining 25 FISA applications, 100% of them, all of them, were materially deficient on the woods file requirement; and the average number of deficiencies per file was 20.  Meaning an average of twenty direct statements against the target, supporting the purpose of the FISA application, sworn by the FBI affiant, were unsubstantiated.  [The low was 5, the high was 63, the average per file was 20]

♦ Half of the FISA applications reviewed used Confidential Human Sources (CHS’s).  The memo outlines that “many” of applications containing CHS claims had no supportive documentation attesting to the dependability of the CHS.

♦ Two of the 25 FISA applications reviewed had renewals; meaning the FISA applications were renewed to extended surveillance, wiretaps, etc. beyond the initial 90-days.  None of the renewals had any re-verification.  Both FISAs that used renewals were not compliant.

But wait… it gets worse.

The DOJ and FBI have an internal self-check mechanism.  The DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) chief counsel, and the chief counsel for every FBI field office are required to conduct an “Accuracy Review” of selected FISA applications.  One per field office (25 to 30 field offices),which are also sent to DOJ-NSD (main justice) for general counsel inspection.

Keep in mind, these “accuracy reviews” are known in advance, so the FBI has all the time in the world to select the best FISA file for review.  Additionally, I surmise the OIG wanted to inspect the “accuracy review” FISA’s because they would show the best light on the overall system itself.  The OIG was looking for the best, most compliant, product to report on.

However, when the OIG inspected 42 of these Accuracy Reviews, the IG identified that only three of them had accurately assembled documents (Woods File) supporting the application.  The error rate within the files self-checked was over 93%.

So the best FBI files are selected to undergo the FBI and DOJ-NSD accuracy review.  The accuracy review takes place by FBI legal counsel and DOJ-NSD legal counsel.  However, the IG finds that only three FBI applications in the accuracy reviews were compliant.

The error rate in the files undertaken by the internal accuracy review was over 93% (3 compliant out of 42 reviewed).  These were the FISA files with the greatest possibility of being accurate.  Let that sink in…

    Actually. I think the best result here might be for EVERY defendant in a case where the FBI presented evidence be appealed on the basis of false testimony. Then force the FBI to explain themselves in front of a judge before having all the cases thrown out. Since the FBI does business on the basis of thier reputation for integrity and thoroughness, showing a complete lack thereof in court should end them without any political gamesmanship.

I lived in a fairly large city in which the Federal Court for that part of the state was located. The only time any case in that federal court was ever in the news, was when Senator John Edwards was being tried in that federal court.

  21. It’s possible that what’s going on is actually worse than anyone here has yet noted. We’re still basing our assumptions on that “How a bill becomes a law” crap we had droned at us in the Mandatory Government Youth Propaganda camps. (Nor do I remember the part where teacher said “First, the new legislation is drawn up by a six-figure lobbyist for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Council, or maybe by someone working for Tom Donohue over at the U.S. Chamber of commerce . . .”)

    Remember, back in October of 2009, when Nancy Pelosi was asked whether the federal government issuing a “health insurance mandate” violated the 10th Amendment? She replied, incredulous, “Are you serious?”

    They swear an oath to protect and defend the Bill of Rights, and then express incredulity when we call them on it. The rules are for the peasants, not for them.

    Congress, on or about Dec. 15, 2019, extended authorization for the FIS court for 90 days, till March 15, 2020. The FIS Court had to be re-authorized by March 15, 2020, we were told, or its authorization would expire. So far as I’ve been able to determine (and I was watching), Congress did NOT reauthorize the FIS court on March 15, and has not done so, since. So asserting “FISA and the FISA Court should be eliminated” should be moot. If our understanding of how “a nation of laws” works, it should by now have been gone, dead, stiff as a board, for 16 days.

    But watch. At some point, we’ll hear that some “American person” has been surveilled by the federals under a warrant from the FIS Court issued AFTER MARCH 15, 2020. Some wise guy will then ask, “What? I thought authorization for the FIS Court expired on March 15, 2020.” Which question will be answered with the kind of condescension usually reserved for the developmentally disabled: “Oh well, congressional re-authorization of a technically expired law is just a kind of theoretical technicality, technically speaking. They may get around to ti eventually, but it’s not really required in the real world . . .”

    Skeptical? Congressional authorization for funding for the Endangered Species Act expired on Oct. 1, 1992. Quite properly worried that its (absurd and overreaching) use to protect “threatened geographical sub-species” of obscure weed, bugs, and slime molds might be pared back a bit in any debate over formal re-authorization, the Green Lunatics have deftly avoided ANY FORMAL REAUTHORIZATION DEBATE for . . . 27 years. So, do you think it would be safe to ignore an order from the EPA that you halt work building your new hospital, because paving the driveway might disturb the “habitat of the Delhi Sands-Loving Maggot”? Good luck.

His published report carefully includes responses from the agencies in question, without further comment. “This is obviously the sort of man who places his toothbrush in exactly the same position, every day,” and in this role that’s exactly the sort of man we need.

      “Until PDJT,™” it is extremely obvious that these agencies operated under the implicit assumption that their activities would never be questioned – no matter what the law said. The corruption in our government was obviously far worse than any of us innocent voters ever dreamed.

    The problem is that until the Corona virus crisis ends, the public won’t care or pay any attention to these FISA issues. Many on this blog have been hopeful that Trump, Barr and Durham will be able to expose the unlawful effort to depose Trump and that would help Trump get re-elected. Now, Trump’s re-election will depend on what plays out with the current crisis. The only way the public will become informed about the Russian Collusion scam is for Trump to get re-elected and for Durham to seek and obtain indictments and convictions against the top players in the scam after the crisis ends.

    Also, with all of these FISA abuses, it can be made to look that Trump wasn’t singled out and that he was “just another victim” of a bad process, rather than a specific victim of a group “bad actors” (Clinton / Obama loyalists).

    This is devastating for the FBI. And it should be the death of the FISA process.

    FISA should NOT be renewed after this interim finding.

    Additionally I wanted to highlight something that Sundance alluded to, but didn’t explicitly mention.

    The evidence presented to the FISC by the FBI should establish probable cause (I don’t know what exact standard of proof is required at the FISC) to issue a warrant. The FBI appears to have embellished or withheld evidence on nearly all applications. This suggests to me that the overwhelmingly vast majority of FISA applications are not fruitful for the purpose of preventing or investigating a crime. Applications look to be pursued for the purposes of conducting fishing operations. FISA is doubtless ‘merely’ a surveillance tool and is not useful for law-enforcement purposes.

    • “In the innocent late-1970’s,” when Congress and the country was up-in-arms about the very idea of hiding a tape recorder in a hotel room, the notion of “a Court” taking the place of a President (whom they despised) might have sounded good on paper. “Good on paper,™” at least, to allow them to achieve a monumental power-play.

      But the entire FISA process is, prima facie, obviously and fatally flawed: the “judges” can hear only one side. They cannot independently verify the information that has been presented. They have little choice but to rubber-stamp. So, “with the effective subterfuge(!) of a ‘Federal Court,'” what we actually wind up with is a stamp. Instead of Presidential action and therefore Presidential accountability, we have “no accountability at all.”

      The PATRIOT Act, which (very suspiciously …) “miraculously appeared” in its 900+ page glory immediately after (vastly more suspicious …) “9/11,” also is a fatally flawed document which should be repealed.

      The Founders of our country, now more than two centuries ago, were wise beyond their ken. In one sentence, now called “the Second Amendment,” they articulated a national defense policy. And in another sentence, a national security policy. They realized that “a nation consists of its citizens – not its armies or its government.”

      Somehow, about 20 years ago now, we were scared into forgetting those lessons. And, “look where we are now.”

      You are mistaken, and it is arguably worse. FBI and DOJ have instituted new process requirements. You can rest easy, assured that these new requirements will be followed exactly as scrupulously as the old process requirements were.

      I still have a tiny sliver of hope left concerning Barr, but I’m pretty much at the point where I’m ready for angry mobs to start dealing with government employees in supervisory or managerial roles who propose more processes and requirements to solve the problems of processes not being followed and requirements not being met.

    I knew that Otrauma had loaded our government system with corrupt people, but I didn’t know to what degree. This shines some light on it. Kind of like using a penlight in a room full of rats. There seems to be too many rats and not enough lights.

    So now what do we do? I talk to people all the time, and I’ll vote, and I post comments. And I support good causes/charities. I don’t know what else can be done other than to pray. Maybe I should pray first, then do the other stuff.

    POTUS has cleaned out much of the swamp, but obviously more cleaning is needed. There are some good people in place now. We just need MORE good people in place. And more rats need to be thrown out.

    Is this evidence of the FISA warrants against C Page not being politically motivated? Is that the media spin?

    Don’t be surprised if the targets of the additional FISA warrants reviewed by the IG start to leak. And, they are not political targets. That will buttress the media spin.

    I smell a rat.

      That was my first thought. By saying the problem was wide and deep and went back many years they are diluting it into a “sloppy procedures” problem that good old Wray can fix with a few powerpoint training sessions for the FBI.

    And giving all that crminal activity to Wray to fix is like giving a gazelle to a lion to protects its safety.

    That rat bastard should be thrown out the front door of the FBI building so vehemently I can’t even give a metaphor for it.

    An idea just popped into my head. It’s probably a bad idea, so please expand on it to make it better.

    How about if the FBI was made a branch of the military subject to UCMJ. Give current employees a choice of either staying on with the new setup, or resign without pension. Any resignations would still have to testify if asked. The new setup would have those found guilty of dereliction of their past duties in Leavenworth for lengthy sentences. Those that resign would be immediately investigated (Roger Stone style) by DOJ or a Special Prosecutor (Sidney Powell for example).

    Chance of justice b4 virus = 0%

    Chance of justice after virus = < 0%

    IOW there’s a greater chance that Nunes and Radcliffe will be arrested.

    29 samples results in a confidence and reliability rate of 95%/90%. Meaning there is a 1 in 20 chance of them saying a good report is bad (false failure, producer risk), and a 1 in 10 chance of them calling a bad report good (escape, customer risk… customer being the surveillance target or the American people at large). This is a typical statistical sampling plan, and shows that there was forethought and a process in how the audit sampling was conducted.

    Being they found so many discrepant reports, it is statistically unlikely that the discrepant reports were a result of random chance.

    The FISA Court had also better start stepping up their game too, and actually start reviewing and challenging what they were given. Which sound like a steaming pile in some cases.

    It seems that there should be a review of applications prior to the Obama administration. Was it always this bad? Or is this a recent downturn in the compliance. Has a similar review already been done? I do not recall anything like this ever being reported. It could possibly be useful information in determining causes for these alarming numbers.

      “Ummmmmmmmm… yes.” It was always this bad.

      And that is why the American people in 2016 elected Donald Trump. (And, that is also why he ran.)

        well then there you have it per Mike always been 93 percent fraud and error in the FISA applications. Don’t know why Horowitz didn’t just call you….

        These are shocking numbers. My question was there a spike in fraud and abuse during this particular time frame as it would be important data to support the spying and nefarious Intelligence ops that took place this last election by a specific administration. It is now common knowledge that FISA judges have been rubber stamping FISA applications, many including myself believe it should never have been allowed and by definition is unconstitutional but that number needs to be explained in greater detail.

    So if Woods files are required, why did the judges let them go through? Seems to me there might be a loophole that the FBI and the judges colluded on to simply move these along. Thus, Judges would be just as much at fault as the FBI and with enough errors on their cases, should be fired.

    Since the House will never pass new legislation that makes Woods files mandatory, and I’m not sure I trust justice Roberts to clean this up, what to do? Somehow every judge that had these error cases needs to be replaced with hard nosed reform oriented judges that either fix it in a specified period of time, or put a legal stop to any new applications.

    No mention of anyone being held accountable for numerous violations of Federal laws as I and others here have predicted! So the DOJ/FBI perps all walk! WOW “40 corrective actions” but no indictments of anyone! So DOJ/FBI personnel can violate Federal laws, violate our 4th Amendment rights without any punishment other than being charged with “implementing reforms” what a joke!!!

      Ding Ding Ding!

      That’s the main point Barr is worried about- “Muh institutions”.

      If even 10% of these cases were questionable, every person they jailed, whether in this time period or not, is going to be asking for review of the evidence, new trials etc. A mess.

      No one looks to make more work for themselves and even less so if they got egg on their face and have to fix something. This is going to be buried as fast as possible by the entire deep state and the DOJ/FBI- including Barr.
