FBI Lawyer Squeals Like a Pig: Implicates Comey, McCabe, and Yates for Mishandling of FISA Warrant



Has this been posted yet?

On Monday Rep. Doug Collins released the remaining transcripts from the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into decisions made at the DOJ and FBI to exonerate Hillary Clinton and spy on candidate Donald Trump

Collins released transcripts on several FBI, DOJ officials including:

Trisha Anderson
William Sweeny
Loretta Lynch
James Kybicki
Andrew McCabe
George Toscas
Jonathan Moffa
John Giacalone
Sally Moyer

On Friday Redstate posted explosive segments from FBI Attorney Trisha Anderson’s testimony. The information first appeared in the Washington Examiner.

In her testimony, she alleges that the application process for the FISA warrant was handled in an “unusual” fashion and that numerous Obama era FBI officials were involved at the highest levels in pushing it through.

But Anderson stressed “in this particular case, I’m drawing a distinction because my boss and my boss’ boss had already reviewed and approved this application.” She emphasized “this one was handled a little bit differently in that sense, in that it received very high-level review and approvals — informal, oral approvals — before it ever came to me for signature.”

Normally, a FISA application would go to the legal department first to confirm that it is indeed proper to press forward with. In this case, top officials informally “approved” the application first, signaling to Anderson that her signature was just perfunctory.

Anderson said that FISA approvals are typically “tracked in a linear fashion” and that someone in the Senior Executive Service “is the final approver on hard copy before a FISA goes to the director or deputy director for signature.” She said the Page FISA was approved outside regular procedures.

“Because there were very high-level discussions that occurred about the FISA,” Anderson said she believed that meant “the FISA essentially had already been well-vetted all the way up through at least the Deputy Director level on our side and through the DAG on the DOJ side.” Yates had already signed the application by the time it made it to Anderson’s desk.

… Anderson stressed that McCabe, Yates, and Baker all played key roles in reviewing the Page FISA. “My approval at that point was really purely administrative in nature. In other words, the substantive issues — the FISA had already substantively been approved by people much higher than me in the chain of command,” Anderson said.

Anderson said it “typically would not have been the case” that people such as McCabe and Yates would sign off on a FISA application before she did.

This testimony by FBI Attorney Trisha Anderson ought to keep several corrupt Obama officials up at night.
They may want to lawyer up.

2. There are Pulitzer Prizes waiting to be picked up

By any "Media Personality" that wants to stop being a Tool for the Democrat Party and Start being an Actual Journalist.

They are so caught up in Trump Hate that they don't want to do it.

They feel they have to Protect the First (Half) Black President at any cost.

I Believe Trump is working up to a "Great Reveal" with indisputable evidence...and they will STILL Likely take the Democrats talking points

10. As an aside here:

I firmly believe there is a mentality to Protect the First Black President at any cost. But now I see it's two-fold.
That presidency was used by the deep state to do their worst while no one dared question.
BO appointed a lot of black people who also were untouchable because, racist. He built a network of untouchable people and the deep state players used that to their advantage.
BO was wet behind the ears when he took office. He was giddy with his new-found rock star status and ripe for the deep state to mold him into its fold.

3. Anatomy of a coup

Which I'm sure does not upset any of the democrats in the forum...…….that is until it happens to one of "their guys."

Every red-blooded American should pay careful attention to what was done to private citizens of this country, and should be outraged at what Obama's corrupt government did.

4. She wasn't supposed to lose.

If Hillary had won, none of this would have come to light.

8. This doesn't raise any red flags for me.

Given that this involved a very high pro-file subject, a presidential campaign, it doesn't seem too out of place that high level officials would get involved.

I think that what would be more damning is if and when it's PROVEN beyond a reasonable doubt that those higher ups PURPOSEFULLY left exculpatory information out of the FISA process.

9. Rumor has it

That there is a Transcript that has Papadopoulos telling Halper, No He's not interested in getting the Emails from Russia, in fact they'd consider that Treason

Never Made it to the FISA Court

Its about to be made public

11. That's the kind of details Barr will need to prove an intentional coup

Brennan spent hours on CNN and elsewhere alluding to Trump committing treason when it looks now as though he was the one defying The Constitution by politicizing intel.
