FBI Uses News Stories Based on Its Leaks to Justify FISA Warrants
Representative Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) claims he has ‚Äúhard evidence‚ÄĚ that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) leaks information to the press and then uses the stories based on those leaks to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
The allegation that the FBI engages in this practice was first reported by the Daily Caller on the basis of an anonymous congressional source. The source told the website that FBI intelligence analyst Jonathan Moffa, in a congressional interview Friday, ‚Äúmore or less admitted that the FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press and then used stories from the press as justifications for FISA warrants.‚ÄĚ
Moffa‚Äôs alleged testimony jibes with the way the FBI used media coverage to justify its investigation of former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. The agency obtained four FISA warrants against Page largely on the basis of...
No Jim?, You gotta stop taking ANYTHING the Washington Post says as accurate. They have several hundred if not thousand of misquotes, things taken out of context and misspeaks all categorized as lies. If you ask someone what time is and they misread their watch and tell you it is an hour later than it really is, they aren‚Äôt lying
The liar is this case is the Washington Post , a very unreliable source for accurate information
Wow! If Jessica Taylor said it, then it MUST be so! Another one of Jiminy's liberal urinalists--oops, I mean journalists--who supported a devilish woman who couldn't even win a rigged election. That's 4,231 now, Jim.
You have proof for that, Timmy? The Washington Post has proof for their numbers
Jessica Taylor wrote: Norman Vincent Peale himself said, "I believe personally in the 'born again gospel,' but I talk about that in my church. Publicly, though, and in meetings around the country around the world, I talk more of a motivational kind of message." And that's, I believe, the message that Donald Trump really drank from. I think that's the one that really shaped him. For example, not only "the power of positive thinking" was one of Norman Vincent Peale's phrases, but he also would go around saying, "Attitude is more important than facts."...

"They went to the court. They got the judges to approve it," Rubio said on CNN's "State of the Union." "And there was a lot of reasons unrelated to the dossier for why they wanted to look at Carter Page."
Four federal judges, all appointed by Republican presidents, approved the surveillance requests, each finding the government had shown "probable cause" that Page was acting as an agent of Russia....

That said, judges rarely deny requests for warrants, approving more than 99 percent, according to The Wall Street Journal. In 33 years the court had rejected only 11 of 33,900 requests.
As more scrutiny has come to the court in recent years, there has been an uptick in rejections. Nine requests were rejected in 2016, a record high, although the vast majority of requests were still approved.
Defenders of the court say it rejects so few applications because the FBI does such a thorough job before presenting the requests for surveillance warrants....
