Why aren't the FISA-abusing FBI leadership in jail?

Since President Trump took office, most journalists along with other Democrats have chastised Trump for questioning the integrity of anyone at the Justice Department.

Now we learn from the Justice Department inspector general that he found errors in 100% of FBI's applications to surveil that he examined.  Think of that: 100%!

Look at this news:

Problems with FBI surveillance extended far beyond probe of Trump campaign, Justice Dept. inspector general says

The Justice Department inspector general revealed Tuesday that he found errors in every FBI application to a secret surveillance court his office examined as part of an ongoing review — suggesting the problems exposed in the bureau's probe of President Trump's 2016 campaign extend far beyond that case alone.

The memorandum issued by Inspector General Michael Horowitz stems from an audit launched last year after his office found 17 serious problems with the FBI's surveillance applications targeting former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The interim results of that audit suggest that the problems that plagued the Page investigation may exist in other counterterrorism and counterintelligence cases. The memorandum may buttress some of the criticism that Trump and his supporters have leveled at the FBI, but the findings also suggest that, rather than political motives, the issues at the agency may be broader institutional weaknesses.

A key part of the inspector general review has been analyzing the Woods files — documents created to ensure the accuracy of the FBI's applications to the court created by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

The inspector general selected a sample of 29 FISA applications to review — and found problems with all of them. In 25 applications, Horowitz's team found "apparent errors or inadequately supported facts," while in four of the cases, they were unable to find any Woods file at all. In three of those missing supporting documentation, it's unclear if a Woods file was ever created.

We are also told constantly by most journalists and other Democrats that President Trump should not question the integrity of known liars like Clapper and Brennan at Intelligence agencies even though journalists know that throughout the Obama/Biden years and before that, the NSA routinely illegally violated the law as it spied illegally on thousands of Americans.

But here we are:

Newly declassified memos detail extent of improper Obama-era NSA spying

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies' ability to obey their own rules.

The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

They detail specific violations that the NSA or FBI disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court or the Justice Department's national security division during President Obama's tenure between 2009 and 2016. The intelligence community isn't due to report on compliance issues for 2017, the first year under the Trump administration, until next spring.


Lawbreaking at the NSA: Bring On a New Church Committee

The Washington Post has revealed an audit documenting thousands of abuses per year. An exhaustive investigation is long overdue — and Ron Wyden should lead it.

Why would anyone with a brain think that a Justice Department that: 

  • colluded with the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to destroy Trump, 
  • protected the corrupt criminal Hillary from prosecution, and
  • committed fraud with the FISA court 

...would hesitate going after ordinary people it wanted to take down?

Isn't it sad that most journalists and other Democrats don't care about the number of people and families that the Justice department is willing to destroy to get what it wants?  Why aren't these corrupt, powerful bureaucrats like James Comey and Andrew McCabe in jail along with other criminals like Hillary whom they covered up for?

Everyone should remember this massive corruption when Joe Biden or anyone else lies that the Obama/Biden administration was scandal-free.

Some people who have never been interested in using their oversight power to investigate the pure corruption at the Justice Department and intelligence agencies during the Obama/Biden years, or through today, are in the House — Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Jerry Nadler.  They are too busy trying to take out Trump with fictional garbage so they can confiscate the presidency for themselves with the help of the complicit media.

This week, the corrupt, dictatorial congenital liar, former president Obama, who did little to prevent deaths from the swine flu and who decimated the inventory of medical supplies and equipment, is blaming Trump for his response to the Chinese virus.

He is also ripping Trump for his lack of response, by what most journalists and other Democrats call an existential threat, to climate change.

What you will never see supposed journalists ask themselves, or Obama, Biden, Hillary, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Al Gore, or Pelosi, for is any factual scientific data showing a direct correlation among humans, CO2, crude oil consumption, and temperature over the last 140 years.  The reason they won't ask the question is that there are no factual data supporting their radical agenda.

The actual existential threat to Americans' freedom, prosperity and civilization, as we know it, would be to elect Democrats and enact their radical agenda.

 Side note: My guess is that this story will not make the nightly news.
