DOJ To Probe Obama FISA Abuse

It may seem like a long time coming, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced yesterday that the Justice Department will investigate Obama-era FISA abuse. Yes, FINALLY this whole business will be looked into! Sessions said that the DOJ′s Inspector General will take the lead in this probe. Probably a good choice, seeing as how I.G. Michael Horowitz was the one who discovered those crazy text messages between FBI love-birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. He even found the text messages the FBI claimed were lost due to technical issues. Horowitz appears to be a straight-shooter and somebody we can trust.




There seems little doubt that there was gross abuse of the FISA court system by the FBI and DOJ during the Barack Obama administration. Especially during it last few months during the 2016 presidential campaign. The recently released, redacted version of the Democrats-Schiff memo supports the earlier GOP FISA abuse memo. Specifically in regards to the FBI misleading the FISA court about who was behind the Christopher Steele dossier. The Schiff memo essentially confirms that the FBI and DOJ did not inform the FISA court judges that the dossier was bought and paid for by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.


The Schiff memo also confirmed that the FBI and DOJ did not fully inform the FISA court how Steele and his employer, Fusion GPS, were shopping the dossier around to The Media, including Yahoo! News, used by the FBI and DOJ as supporting the dossier claims. They also misled the court about how Carter Page was some kind of Russian agent, even though they knew he wasn′t. Indeed, during 2013 and 2014, Carter Page helped the FBI and DOJ in uncovering a Russian spy ring. On top of that, he wasn′t even part of the Trump campaign anymore at the time of the FISA surveillance warrant requested in October, 2016. Page′s role in the campaign had been short and very minor, never even meeting with or speaking to then Candidate Donald Trump.


Attorney General Jeff Sessions has mentioned previously that there are some 28 investigations into the leaking of classified material which started during the Obama administration in connection to the Trump-Russia allegations. One arrest has already been made. It is unclear if any of the unmasking leaks are part of this part of the probe? The House Intelligence Committee is beginning its own probe into that. Friday is the deadline for several former Obama officials to respond to a questionnaire from the House committee on the FISA abuse case. John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey have until Friday to answer the questions, or face being called before the committee.


One thing is certain, after over a year of chasing the alleged, phony Trump Russia collusion story, we may now get to the real collusion and criminal activity which took place during and after the 2016 elections. The Obama administration does appear to have been abusing the FISA laws to spy against then Candidate Trump and later, to sabotage the Trump administration once coming into power. Who can say how high up the food chain this abuse went, but I think we know the answer already.
