Carter Page takes FISA center stage

Go ahead, make my…

As the evidence continues to mount on the damage done to the nation from the early years of the 2000s until his departure in Marine One from the South Lawn of the White House last year, it is becoming patently obvious that OBO-44 and those who surrounded him is about to be tagged as the most corrupt and evil president in American history.

Considering his origins interloping between the Al Capone, Bill Ayers, Reverend Wright, Saul Alinsky, Richard Daley (both of ’em), Rod Blagojevich and Rahm Emanuel Chicago School of Politics, this was pitifully predictable. Unless that is, he was the first Boy Scout to graduate from that program (or should that be ‘pogrom’?)

As a for instance, no one has ever been able to explain how he was able to buy a $1.6 million-dollar house on his $50k annual salary, back in his pre-POTUS days. Or how Moochelle was able to land a $300k job as a hospital administrator without a lick of experience in hospital administration; a job by the way, which was curiously discontinued when she moved to Washington. Nowadays surrounded by multiple multi-million dollar properties scattered far and wide, the mystery plot thickens – from where and whom did all that money come?

The list of lawless persons in positions of leadership is long and involved: Obama, AG Eric Holder, AG Loretta Lynch, FBI director James Comey, Robert Mueller, Secy of State Hillary Clinton, Secy of State John Kerry, John Brennan, James Clapper among many others in the IRS, FBI, CIA, BLM and other agencies. And yet, not a single one of these people has been fired, charged with a crime nor forced to appear before a jury of their peers to see if they should serve jail time. Why is that?

But first a little digression from the second source today, ‘sundance’ at Conservative Treehouse … “The primary target of the DOJ FISA “Title I” surveillance warrant, Carter Page, appears on Fox News with Laura Ingraham for an exclusive interview discussing Mr. Page’s history and contact with the Trump campaign. There are two interview segments.”

Video #1:

Video #2:

♦Around 01:50 of segment #2 Carter Page says he emailed FBI Director James Comey on Sept. 25th, 2016 offering his help on any questions the FBI might have; and noted prior work with people within the FBI and the intelligence community.  This is approximately a month before the October 21st, 2016, FISA “Title 1” application against him.

♦Around 03:05 Carter Page mentions the prior DOJ case he was involved in, against Evgeny Buryakov, described by the DOJ as an FBI Under-Cover Employee (UCE-1), in this interview Carter Page describes himself as a “witness“.

Now fast forward to today where Thomas Lifson and Sharyl Attkisson share center-stage from today’s American Thinker:

It turns out that the FISA court warrant applications for secret surveillance of Carter Page, and through him, the Trump campaign, may have violated the elaborate internal FBI procedural safeguards put in place by – hold your breath! – Robert Mueller. I will respect [Sharyl Attkisson] by limiting the excerpts here and sending you to her column in The Hill laying out her journalistic digging. It is the essential read of the day.

There are strict rules requiring that each and every fact presented in an FBI request to electronically spy on a U.S. citizen be extreme-vetted for accuracy — and presented to the court only if verified. (snip)

Presentation of any such unverified material to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to justify a wiretap would appear to violate crucial procedural rules, called “Woods Procedures,” designed to protect U.S. citizens.

Yet Comey allegedly signed three of the FISA applications on behalf of the FBI. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reportedly signed one and former Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein each reportedly signed one or more. (snip)

Woods Procedures were named for Michael Woods, the FBI official who drafted the rules as head of the Office of General Counsel’s National Security Law Unit. They were instituted in April 2001 to “ensure accuracy with regard to … the facts supporting probable cause” after recurring instances, presumably inadvertent, in which the FBI had presented inaccurate information to the FISA court.

Best of all, the Woods Procedures were implemented by none other than Robert Mueller, as head of the FBI.

This would seem to indicate that Mueller should be intimately aware of the corrupt origins of his own investigation, the “fruit of the poisonous tree,” as the law calls it.

Sharyl Attkisson is a national treasure!

In closing, a thought or two from thread commenter with the handle ‘harrietht3’: “It should be standard operating procedure for us to understand that every criminal allegation the DemoMarxists lob against us is in reality something they themselves are guilty of; in other words, since they habitually behave criminally they ASSUME everyone else does too.

“The difference is that in our circles we follow the law; in our circles, such allegations have real-world consequences; in our circles even the *taint* of illegality comes with a high societal and political cost — often including jail time (Scooter Libby comes to mind).

“But in DemoMarxist circles illegality is accepted as the means to an end, illegality is overlooked, snickered about, and even praised: “Wow, did you just see what Hillary got away with!?? — you go girl! you show ’em.” It doesn’t matter what laws a Hillary or an Obama breaks, it’s all for the cause.

“Remember all the astro-turfing Nancy Pelosi was screaming about being practiced by Tea-Partiers and Trump supporters? Well — who really was astro-turfing? Who buses in loads of paid protesters? It’s the DemoMarxists and their comrades.[end]
