IG Horowitz Found ‘Apparent Errors Or Inadequately Supported Facts’ In Every Single FBI FISA Application He Reviewed
The DOJ’s internal watchdog has found “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts” in more than two dozen FBI wiretap applications to the secretive domestic surveillance court.

The Justice Department inspector general said it does “not have confidence” in the FBI’s FISA application process following an audit that found the Bureau was not sufficiently transparent with the court in 29 applications from 2014 to 2019, all of which included “apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.”
Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in December which found that the FBI included “at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications and many errors in the Woods Procedures” during its Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign. After releasing the report, Horowitz said that he would conduct a further investigation to see if the errors identified in the Page application were widespread. More
We’ve known for over three years, now what? It seems to me that the perfect way to fix the FISA system is to eliminate it immediately. Its abuse has damaged the USA enough. When do we start arresting people?
Reforms without severe criminal penalties including long jail terms for abusing the system is useless.

MARK MY WORDS!
I’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on lawyers representing my companies before my lawyers put their signature on a document they know damn well what they are signing. The FISA JUDGES knew what they were signing. They were in on the fraud. Trust me (R/T)

“Appalled”? What a joke. Did he clutch his pearls too? How about just enforcing the law against bad guys? Against people who lied & spied? Against the coup conspirators? Two- tiered justice is a virus that’s killing our Republic.

#DOJ tell us who has been held accountable?
What was the punishment
How many were disciplined, terminated or reprimanded?
Asking for a friend.

Enough to prosecute for Treason? If so, maximum punishment is warranted pic.twitter.com/FMEJdzJliR
