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…

    Sundance, the reason only 3 files were compliant out of 42 Accuracy Reviews is that in the rest of their ‘matters’ the FBI spied on US citizens without any FISA warrants at all; hence, there were no files to submit.

      Since it is the Counterintelligence people in the FBI who make use of the FISA warrants it follows that the entire CI team in the bureau has to go. It is pretty clear that the Woods procedures were nothing more than a sop to the FISA Court so that the FBI could continue with business as usual. Who was in charge of the FBI when Woods procedures were initiated? Yup, Mueller.

      Mueller and his entire team KNEW on day one that the investigation of Carter Page, and the Trump campaign, was a fraud, yet they continued to investigate and process crimes were the goal, along with the fantasy of obstruction of justice charges against the president. Every prosecution except possibly Manafort, is fruit of the poisonous tree…

      One other thought. Huber’s appointment was a complete fraud by Sessions, and that needs to be injected into the campaign down there in Alabama.

      Well, it still lands at the feet of corrupt and incompetent political parties legislating voluminous acts of stupidities upon stupidities.

      What is the price of too many laws? What is the impact of criminalizing a society?

      We are looking at it. People in the judicial system and law enforcement are tragicomically and catastrophically overworked, stuffed full of anti-depressants when they aren’t lubricated with alcohol. These are our fellow citizens, folks and they are heroically immersed in a deeply destructive and brutally dysfunctional unmediated bureaucracy.

      The Moronicrats in Congress and their insipid provincial moralisms and desire to grandstand legislated morality by statutory decree have created a jungle of complexity has exhausted the LEO and Judicial cultures of our modern era beyond their ability to function unpathologically; especially the judicial branch.

      It’s a friggin’ crises folks! We’re wrong to demonize them for the gawd-awful mess we’ve made of our laws and judicial environment.

      We gotta get back to crimes against persons and property. We gotta get back to incarcerating depravity; locking up the depraved that can’t be trusted to walk the streets.

      We gotta get out of the policing morality business. It’s bankrupted our nation. It’s turned too many otherwise honest people into criminals, liars and hypocrites.

      The duplicity of these broken systems is corrosive to everything precious in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

      Way too many laws. Too much is criminalized. We are all one false accusation away from a destroyed life.

      The insanity gripping our Congress is the product of two malignantly corrupt political parties and a failure of honesty among ourselves. For decades we have been deluded into conducting a war upon individual liberty.

      We reap what we sow. Bitter harvest, this.

      We need less punishment, not more. More healing. Redemption. I pray that our President Trump can lead a successful transformational return to our founding ideals.

    Aren’t judges involved with this? I understand that judges are supposed to look at what is brought to them in order to decide whether the information given matches up to allowing the warrants to be granted. Yet, if these reviews and procedures are so faulty that the IG can see the issues without even looking at details, where the hell were the judges?

    This just highlights why this needs to end. It has always been a highly questionable means of circumventing normal procedures, and from the looks of it, the judges are at least as faulty as the agency personnel who put together the applications. They were a rubber stamp for issues which should always be far more carefully guarded, rather than just a hand wave blessing. The judges involved should be removed from the bench for allowing these abuses.

    The potential for abuse of our legal system was the biggest reason against such legislation. Our worst fears have been proven correct. Heads should be rolling over these abuses. Supervisory positions who allowed this should face charges and immediately lose their jobs and salaries till it is proven they actually did their jobs.

        Yes. The courts have not mustered the will to punish, perhaps because they are running on vapors. There is no prosecutor of prosecutors. We see much evidence of perverted lawyering in the prosecutorial culture; predatory, promiscuous. Qualified immunity has produced little more than depraved process and serial prosecutorial abuse.

        Qualified immunity needs to be revoked. It all begins with revoking qualified immunity.

        Revoking qualified immunity means they become just another citizen, subject to all the same laws and standards of reason and jurisprudence along with the rest of us.

        Because they have qualified immunity, they are literally better than us. They have immunity. They are exempt from laws that apply to the rest of us lowly citizens.

The FISC judges are very bad news. They should all be replaxced with honest people who accept their responsibility to protect civil rights, and to protect teh integrity of their Court by punishing misrepresentation, and withdrawing tainted fake Warrants.

    I’d sure appreciate it if people bombarded Comey on twitter, and post links to this story.

    He was fbi director from 2013 to 2017.

    And send it to Wray, too.

      It needs to be sent to AG Barr by everyone. We have to let him know we won’t let him cover this up. It has to be blasted everywhere.

      We patriots know too much to allow this to disappear into the abyss. Let the President know we have his back.

    Makes me sick when talking heads like Hannity pretend the “rank and file” are some holy category, apart from the “bad apples at the top”. The FBI and CIA need to be purged, root and stem, then rebuilt. They’re criminal organizations. No one with any honesty left in them can possibly fight the evil that runs the show, so I don’t feel a need to protect their “feelings” when talking about these evil organizations. You sleep with dogs, you get up with fleas. If you have integrity, don’t work for the mafia.

      There is an observation, in Australia, that one needs to set a thief to catch a thief.
      Thus, most law enforcement does contain members of the same class as those they are attempting to detain – with the only exception being they do it with the authority of their masters.
      If they were so inclined as to stick to that path, the general public would have nothing to fear – alas, the power then goes to their heads and they become, for the most part, worse than those they accuse of breaking the law – because they do it from behind a badge or a uniform and an oath of office.

    Well, unfortunately, this sounds like proof that Comey, McCabe, Strzoc, Page et al were not specifically targeting Trump. They weren’t orchestrating a coup, they were just incompetent.
    If the abuse was only in regards to investigating Trump, then you could say they were illegally targeting him.

    Or at least that is what they will now claim. A valid investigation just done incompetently, like all the others.

      Man, I hope you are never on a jury.
      Take a couple days, research yourself some Sundance on FISA, there is plenty to find using the archives search.
      Come on back with your conclusion about incompetence.

        You think Comey et al hasn’t already done that? Don’t be naive. They have the backing of the media and that is what they will claim, regardless of what you know to be the truth.

        Your research will consist of looking at what has happened in the last few years, especially related to accountability for these characters. Or perhaps you need to re-read my comment, instead of giving me assignments.

      The spying & weaponization of the Obama Admin started early in the Obama Admin. It’s a safe bet Trump wasn’t even the only Republican candidate they spied on.

      That said, once Trump won they tried to stage a coup d’etat because Trump knew what they were up to & was going to expose it all.

      Obama purged the good guys in the FBI/CIA/NSA/HHS/FDA/EPA/IRS etc & replaced them with people who shared the same socialist/progressive ideology. Virtually anyone left once Trump took over has something to hide.

      The FISA abuse was the tool used, not the reason for the coup attempt. Your argument is the same argument used to curtail the 2nd amendment Just because guns are used by those that refuse to follow laws, does not mean more laws would keep those people from committing murder; it also doesn’t mean the gun is the problem.

      My only caveat with my argument, is the FISA process was put in place to be abused by the powerful against the populace and the 2nd amendment was put in place to curtail the abuse by the powerful on the populace.

    I don’t like the results for another reason. First of all; if the courts do not substantiate, they have no reason for being. And second of all; this investigation that sprinkles all FISA submissions corrupt gives an out to the treasonous coup attempt. It now will be lumped under mismanagement and be hidden among that pollution.

    The OIG selected 29 FISA applications from those field offices over the period of October 2014 to September 2019
    Why not take it back to 2010 and find out when FISA turned into a tool to spy on American citizens and manipulate political outcomes… Choosing this time period just goes to show the intent of such a study was to exonerate the Obama administration by implicating this administration. I want to know exactly when this train was diverted from foreign investigation onto the tracks to investigate American citizens without authorization.

    This explains why PDJT is focused ONLY on correcting the problems going forward rather than send past violaters to jail. It would require some many people to be prosecuted that the nation wouldnt stand for it. And the fear of such prosecutions is why DeepState has worked so hard to bring PDJT down. And why Sessions and Barr simply focused on fixing the problem.

    For all the grousing to/about IG Horowitz, maybe I’m in a distinct minority here…

    But as Sundance explains, sunlight is the best disinfectant..

    If all Mr. Horowitz is able to do is to pry open the stone slab covering the crypt entrance, with limited tools, in a dangerous cemetery, at considerable personal and professional risk, and in so doing, allowing the sunlight to flood in…

    Then he will be a hero to me.

    Perhaps because of this blinding daylight, the deeds of the denizens of the darkness will finally be exposed such that their is no longer an option to look away…

    And this gangrenous festerance, an order of magnitude more deadly than any external virus, will have one of two choices:

    Explode in a pus-filled boil when lanced by the sterile (?) knife, or succumb to the amputors scalpel, taking with it plenty of dying and poisoned flesh…

    Truly, the times we live in defy description.
