    Anyone who actually knows how the FISA warrants are cleared realize they are a compilation of sometimes hundreds of reasons and known evidence before a judge or judges allow the investigators to begin. 

    Nunes--who's already shown he'll assist Trump in throwing mud on the investigation in the House Intel Committee--hasn't even read the underlying classified info the FISA warrants were based on. How could be write a memo on what the underlying reasons were without doing so?

    All in all, It's obvious to those who actually watch and read factual news sources that it's a desperation move by Trump and his right wing cronies because they know Mueller is getting closer to questioning Donald. Despite his "looking forward" to the interview, his lawyers are trying everything to stop him from doing so. Apparently, they know how many lies Trump tells as does everyone.

    The memo will surely be released by Trump because he values his skin much more than he values the security of the country. Have at it Trump fans....

      Nunes is Trump's biggest defender in Congress. I'm sure his memo attacking the FBI is completely free of bias ...

        Nunes shouldn't even be on the committee due to his being so close to Trump during the campaign and the transition. He's already shown he'll break all sorts of norms to benefit Trump and protect him from criminal charges. Anyone can see through this charade, except his fans of course.

        One thing's for sure, since Nunes and his cronies are releasing classified info against the wishes of the FBI and Justice Department then Trump Fans can never bring up Hillary's keeping classified emails on a private server again. lol   The nitwits bit themselves on the ass again!  cool

      Hi Randy, I hope you don't mind if I add a little more to the context of your "FISA" Court Warrant information. It may not have any bearing on the issue of the Nunes memo, but it will at least add a bit of balance to your portrayal of "sometimes hundreds of reasons" for a FISA warrant to be issued.

      There may have been hundreds of supporting reasons for the FISA warrant of this discussion, but there is no information that is the case, and much information that it may not have been a correct assumption that it was.

      There are 11 judges on the FISA court panel, and an application is only presented to one of them. So it is just one judge that makes the determination. I didn't find whether those jusdges are on a duty-rotation, or if a FISA applicant can "shop"  for a particular judge to ask. I won't insinuate that is the case here, but I will point out it is a possibility.

      It seems the primary determining factor for a FISA judge is the DOJ AG, (or Deputy AG), signing-off on an affidavit from a senior FBI official summarizing the reasons for the FISA request. The composition of this affidavit could very well have included "hundreds" of tidbits of investigative evidence - or it could be comprised of just one or two "obvious" pieces of evidence. The "obviousness" of those one or two pieces is the determination of the FBI official providing the affidavit.

      Reading between the lines it seems entirely plausible to think that it is possible a warrant could be requested with just one damning, (in the FBI's mind), piece of evidence. I am not saying that is the case here, but only that it is a possibility.

      Considering that only 12, out of 34,000  FISA warrant requests were denied between 1978 and 2013, it doesn't seem too speculative to think that every warrant request was not as massively supported as your "hundreds" of pieces of evidence might imply.

      Of course you could be right that there are hundreds of reasons supporting the FISA warrant of the discussion, but I just thought fleshing out the skeleton of context you provided might paint a more accurate picture of the possibilities. It is not an improbable thought that the warrant being talked about could have been approved on just the evidence of the Steele dossier - if an FBI official and a DOJ AG or Deputy Ag supported its presentation to a FISA judge.

        Thanks GA, but we also have to take in consideration that Page had already been under a FISA warrant for quite some time as he was known to have previous contacts with the Russians. More than likely they've gathered even more evidence than simply the dossier--although some of it has been corroborated by other sources--during the previous warrants. I do see your point though.

        This does seem like a bad way to go about it even if there was some suspicion on the part of Trump's BFF Nunes.

          Hey bud,
          Like you, I have just read the memo. If there is validity to its claims, I can see the possibility of a legitimate complaint. But my read of the memo leaves me feeling like it is just partisan dissatisfaction with the process.

          That was a big "if" though. If the claims are true, then I can see a partisan motivation for the FISA applications - and that is definitely not something that reflects well on the FBI or DOJ.

                  Well now Wilderness, since it appears I have been assigned a persona, let me relate a cute story.

                  In my middle-years I used to drink Courvoisier, which is an expensive cognac, but that is only called cognac because of the region where it is produced. It is technically a brandy because it is fermented from fruit, (grapes).

                  I admit I drank it as much for the "snob" effect as the taste. Imagine someone too full of themselves bellying up to a bar laden with beer and cocktail glasses receiving a snifter that looks like a too-short drink - and smiling as I paid too much for too little. And it is typically served in a large brandy snifter like your picture.

                  Well, my very last Courvoisier was served in a too-large snifter. One that allowed my nose to "enter" the glass as I tilted it to drink. (think of your picture, it took a full-tilt to get a drink)

                  What an education. You can take my word for it that the aroma of a brandy that escapes the top of the snifter is not the same as the aroma still in contact with the liquid and confined in the glass bowl of a snifter.

                  When my nose inhaled the enclosed aroma of that cognac ... it was so gawwdd awful that I couldn't even finish the drink, I couldn't believe I was "enjoying" something that smelled that bad.  I have never had Courvoisier since then.

                  But... if your pictured glass had a good Ginger or Blackberry brandy in it. Then cheers, let's pour another.

                    Not much for brandy, thank you.

                    But when I was a teen I worked the closing shift at a gas station, the only one there.  One night an old gentleman came in; a regular customer that often came inside to chat a bit with me.  He said he was moving and would I like some homemade wine?  I said "Sure" and pointed him to my car, saying he could just put it in there as I could not leave the station office.

                    Came closing and I locked up and headed for the car; a '55 chevy belair it was.  He had taken me at my word.  The truck was full, the back seat and floor boards were covered and stacked to the top of the seat.  The front seat passenger area was loaded.  There was enough wine in that car to get the town drunk!

                    Some of it was really good, though - I particularly enjoyed the buttercup wine (can you imagine picking enough buttercup flowers to make a gallon of wine?).  The dandelion was good, too.  And the rose.  And...

    Now that the memo is released to the public, it plainly shows the lengths Nunes will go to protect the Liar-In-Chief. The cherry picked memo claims the Steele Dossier was the sole basis on which to renew the Carter Page FISA warrant

    Anyone who believes this is unaware of the procedures taken to ensure the warrant is lawful. Despite the past FISA warrants issued for Page's known Russian connections, each new warrant requires numerous reasons and proof of gains from previous warrants to extend the investigations.

    Trump and Nunes are risking the country's national security simply to protect Trump from being further investigated by Mueller. Traitors who will soon get their due diligence for their efforts to circumvent the law. Not surprising at all for Trump.

      Geez Randy, don't you have confidence in your opinions without the need for "spin" reinforcement?

      "...each new warrant requires numerous reasons and proof of gains from previous warrants to extend the investigations."

      Nothing I could find, (using my friend Google of course), concerning FISA warrant renewals  support this. To the contrary, it seems that just the reaffirmation of the original need - and an assertion of continued interest, and, a DOJ and FBI sign-off on the renewal application will get a renewal approved.

      From my nosing around "official" government sources, sorta neutral online sources, and both Left and Right leaning sources - one impression seemed common; the FISA court judge places great reliance on the referrals from the FBI and DOJ. I did not get the impression that the FISA judge went through the supporting materials with great care.

      So what is it that you claim supports such an opposite conclusion as to what it takes to get a renewal?

        I got this from a former FBI agent who is experienced in handling FISA warrants. If nothing is gained by a previous warrant then further demonstrations of valid cause are needed. From what I understand from various house committee members on TV there was plenty gained from the previous warrants which made the dossier a minor cause if anything.

    Well, it turns out that "the memo" reveals that:

    "According to the document, information from the the so-called Steele dossier was "essential" to the acquisition of surveillance warrants on Trump campaign aide Carter Page. It claims that then-deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe told the committee in December that without the information from the Steele dossier, no surveillance warrant for Page would have been sought.

    "The memo alleges that the political origins of the dossier — paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) — were not disclosed to the clandestine court that signed off on the warrant request."

    Excerpts from the memo:

    "Our findings indicate that, as described below, material and relevant information was omitted....The application does not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of—and paid by—the DNC and Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information."

    "The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page's July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News."

    What this means (among other things): "Absent the dossier, at least one of the surveillance warrants in the case would not have been obtained, and - by implication - the entire Mueller probe is thus on shaky legal ground." https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02- … at-it-says

      Randy Godwinposted 10 months agoin reply to this

      Sorry, but Nunes claims McCabe told the committee the dossier was the main reason for the FISA warrant which others in the room disputes happened. The Dems are asking for the transcripts to be released which will show Nunes to telling another partisan lie. Trump's lies have contaminated the very top of the Republican party who are now trying to protect pathological liar.

      My hopes are the Dems memo will tell the whole story, if Trump will release theirs, which is no guarantee from the POTUS.

      This plainly political partisanship is seen for what it is, trying to protect traitors to the US and nothing more.

    Randy, the memo is not sourcing what McCabe allegedly said. It is sourcing the FISA documents.

    I assume what you are trying to say is that the memo is not truthful. The only way to settle such a claim is to declassify the original FISA documents.

    Probably the best way to approach that is to release those portions of the FISA documents that address specific objections.

When the real news comes out your boy Nunes may take a hike or hide his head in the sand. There were other basis for the FISA warrants on Page including facts learned in the earlier surveillance on him.

    I'm sitting back enjoying the fact that Trump has convinced his supporters to be more concerned with some people in government who had negative opinions of him than with the fact that Carter Page is a foreign agent of Russia and there was quid pro quo between Trump's campaign and a hostile foreign government.  Drop the sanctions and they'll help get him elected.  With Trump refusing to enforce sanctions as nearly unanimously voted on by Congress, is there much doubt left here that that is what they agreed on?

We also do not know if the FISA court was informed that the dossier was paid for by the Democratic party and the Clinton campaign.   These are questions yet to be answered. This is what prompted the Nunes memo. Not sure why so many are having a hard time grasping facts on this mess?  I guess it could be that the media is stirring the waters to make it hard to see how simple this sad Democratic ploy was. They tried to pull a scam, it has blown up in their face, and this time the Clinton's are taking down our two most sacred Government agencies with them.   These two grifter's are going out in a bang.

  9. blueheron profile image96
    blueheronposted 10 months ago

    The following link clarifies a couple of things related to the FISA warrant on Carter Page.

    "The FISA ‘warrant’ request, against Carter Page, was made October 21st, 2016, under Title I of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.  Meaning the surveillance application was specifically stating, to the court, the U.S. individual was likely an actual agent of a foreign government, ie. 'a spy.' "

    This is a very serious allegation. Per legal commentary:

    "To spy on Americans through a FISA court, the FBI must show the target is an 'agent of a foreign power,' not merely in contact with a foreign power. The law makes it difficult to show someone is an 'agent of a foreign power' to make sure it is not misused to spy on Americans....Claiming someone is an 'agent of a foreign power' is a difficult standard to ever show, and should never happen to a domestic political opponent in a domestic political campaign."

    What evidence was provided to show that Carter Page was "an agent of a foreign power"--a SPY?

    "To give validity to the underlying position of the DOJ and FBI, the justice department used: the Clinton-Steele Dossier; media reports from -and of- the Clinton-Steele dossier; and opposition research provided by Clinton financed Fusion-GPS through Nellie Ohr, so they could monitor U.S. Person Carter Page.

    "In total, this sketchy assembly of political campaign research was used by the FBI as evidence to back-up their claim U.S. person Carter Page was working as a foreign agent; essentially saying: he was a spy.  This application assembly was then certified on four different occasions by specific officials within the DOJ and FBI." (The FISA warrant was required to be renewed every 90 days.)

    Who signed off on this?

    "Consistent with the requirements under FISA, the application had to be first certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI. It then required the approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division.

    "The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by statute, a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate finding of probably cause. Then-Director James Comey signed three and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Then-DAG Sally Yates, then Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ."

    So we have quite an astonishing number of people at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ knowingly presenting falsified materials to the FISA court.

    These actions embrace several serious crimes. In view of the motives for these actions (attempting to fix and election, attempting to remove a sitting president), some would say that one of those crimes is sedition.

      Were you aware the FBI had known about Page's involvement with the Russians and had been watching him since 2013?  Are you sad he's been indicted for working with the Russians, or are you just sad he got caught?

      The FBI found out plenty about Page and even warned him the Russians were trying to use him long before the FISA warrants were applied for. Bet you didn't hear this on Fox. cool

    Blueheron,
    You do realize two other members of Trump's campaign have already been charged as failing to register as foreign agents?  How much of a reach is it to assume with his Russia trips that Carter Page was doing some shady things that gave the FBI and a judge cause for reinstituting the FISA surveillance?

    And the investigation into Trump campaign ties began three months before anything to do with Carter Page thanks to Papadopoulos bragging to the Aussies, which was also in the memo.

    So with that as the beginning of the backdrop to the Trump campaign violating US law and concerns about Russian espionage, there was plenty of cause to expand a warrant on Page when he has a past history and is traveling to Russia while working for Trump.

    The bigger question is why don't you care if the Trump campaign was violating the law?

      Shar, have you forgotten Nunes already made a fool of himself by getting classified info from Trump, running back to the committee and claiming HE found evidence of wrongdoing on the FISA warrants, and then right back to the WH telling the committee and the world he was taking the info to Trump.

      Of course, everyone found out Nunes and Trump cooked the whole thing up and Nunes had to recuse himself from the Committee. Do you really think he learned his lesson the first time? Hell no! It's the same scam. Why would anyone trust Nunes anyway? He campaigned for Trump and was on Trump's transition team. He shouldn't have anything to do with investigations.

    Randy, the link I posted in my last comment discusses the Carter Page investigation at some length, and indicates that the basis for this investigation was the falsified (in effect, perjured) evidence presented to the FISA court.

    If you have a link showing that there was some other evidence drawing suspicion onto Carter Page, please present it.

      Just like Nunes no one has seen the underlying info the FISA warrants are based on. Only Adam Schiff. two of Nunes staffers--they actually wrote the Memo--and Trey Gowdy have inspected the FISA warrants.

      On top of that, Nunes wouldn't answer the question of whether his staffers worked with the WH to write the memo. Trump already knew what was in the memo before he got it some way or another. Wonder why Nunes avoided that question. lol

      At any rate, when the Dems memo gets published--if Trump allows it--it will rebut everything in the cons memo and will explain to people like yourself who do not understand how the system works.

      Weird that the GOP members of that committee would not allow the minority memo to be produced.  That's likely the evidence we all know exists and that the GOP memo left out.  The same evidence that Schiff claims exists, but is classified and cannot be produced.

        Weird?  Why?  It can only be a political rebuttal to a (presumably) factual statement; how in the world can that be relevant to what the FBI did or didn't do?

        Perhaps we need an "independent" investigation into the whole thing?  Because for sure playing politics will not produce anything of value, only spun party declarations that the Democrats, or the Republicans, did not wrong and it won't matter a flip whether the statement is true or not - it will be said anyway.

    There is nothing in this memo that National Security would be compromised, maybe American Security (meaning, you, me, your neighbors, your family) is compromised.
         Nunes isn’t the only member on the intel committee, the committee voted to release, yes republican maj. but the Democrats in the intel committee have not said anything in the memo is untrue, just things were left out, that they feel was important and both memos should footnote the sources of info that it was originated from, which they voted that it should not be included, some disagree, doing so would make things more definitive than a memo that could be debunked as an opinion to the facts, with the exception of the struck, page texts, which is extremely damaging to the FBI.
         People don’t need to be so right or left, look down the middle look at the facts and main stream media is not a good source you can rely on for sure. Washington in general is the true Sin City, Vegas has nothing on what goes behind closed doors in Washington, all I know is the Clinton Machine is extremely corupt and the only collusion going on was the Hilliard camp and the DNC. Blaming the Trump camp for doing what they were doing along. Money, Uranium, Pay to Play, Sex Scandals, mysterious deaths must I go on?
         I’m not being left or right in that conclusion, People just have a bad habit of disappearing. Lots of double answers with whatever is popular at the time and the audience they entertained, not so much with slick Willy, but her is the DEVIL. It all started with “ I have never had any sexual relations with that women, Ms. Lewinski” she must of slipped and fell on that cigar. What you talkin’ about Willy? Hilliary made those women pay in the worse ways...whatever happened to accepting the outcome of the election, everyone else should do the same, he is our President, if there is an issue, the truth always come out. That why they hate Trump so much, he has access to the truth and he should expose it. Drain the Money laundering Swamp!

    Randy, the source of a person's information is irrelevant. What is important is whether the information is factual. You seem to believe that your own preferences in the matter of news sources are those that are more authoritative. They are not. The mainstream media is in essence a monopoly. Six corporations own 1500 newspapers, 1100 magazines, 9000 radio stations, 1500 TV stations, 2400 publishing companies and 95% of the entertainment/indoctrination programming. Cross directorships mean only a few hundred people control what purports to be the "news"  supposedly reported to the western world.

    Actually, it's worse than that. According to Forbes, 15 billionaires own America's news media companies. Some of these billionaires are not Americans, such as Carlos Slim, who owns a sizeable chunk of the NY Times.

    There have been a number of instances in which government control of the mainstream media has been exposed. Much of what appears in the mainstream media is rather transparently propaganda. A significant proportion of it is straight-up lies. In the entertainment media a very significant proportion of the material consists of propaganda and social engineering--much of it repulsive in the extreme.

    Independent media, while far from perfect, is a far better source of facts and independent analysis. This is where the voices of real people are heard--people who are not controlled by--and compelled to regurgitate--the views and opinions of a small number of elite owners of media monopolies (and, I might add, government operatives). Independent media is in the tradition of the small-town newspaper of the past, or the big city newspaper of the past that employed real investigative journalists, rather than taking their news from the wire services.

    The MSM thoroughly discredited itself over a period of many decades, and more and more people had come to realize this. But during the presidential election they really outdid themselves. Normally I try to avoid ad hominems, but if you place your trust in the MSM, you are extraordinarily obtuse--besides being extraordinarily uninformed.

Unlike Nunes, Schiff allowed both FBI and DOJ to come speak about the underlying classified info contained in the FISA warrant on Page. Nunes refused to allow the same two agencies to address his memo. I know you don't like to answer questions, but who looks more honest in getting their memo out?

          It would be detrimental to the FISA program to release the entire classified info about Page because it would compromise methods and those doing the actual work of the program. If they can redact some names, and not compromise the entire program, we'd all like to look at the underlying reasons for the warrant.

                Good.  Then you also understand that of the 7 agencies there is likely only one that considers if a foreign sale harms national defence, and likely one one that concerns itself with fraud.  And that means that touting that there were 8 agencies overlooking Hillary's possible wrongdoing is a false statement.  And I highly doubt that any agency concerned itself with massive "contributions" right after the Uranium deal, and by many of the people and companies directly connected with that deal.

                  Valeantposted 10 months agoin reply to this

                  The deal required multiple approvals by the U.S., beginning with the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States. Under federal law, the committee reviews foreign investments that raise potential national security concerns.

                  The Committee on Foreign Investments has nine members, including the secretaries of the treasury, state, defense, homeland security, commerce and energy; the attorney general; and representatives from two White House offices (the United States Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy).

                  The committee can’t actually stop a sale from going through — it can only approve a sale. The president is the only one who can stop a sale.

                  So while I will readily admit there are pay-to-play issues with Foundation donations from Uranium One investors that they tried to hide and Bill Clinton speaking fees related to this transaction, saying that Hillary had much say here might be a reach.

          Oh, I thought you got your "facts" from Fox News. It's good to hear you don't believe their garbage. hmm

      Hey Val, I've been seeing  that meme on facebook, lately. As usual, it's the ill informed posting meaningless, exaggerated or poorly written memes. I guess that's a way to make up for that fantastic dud the Nunes Memo has become.

      How tragic, Hillary got the wrong guy... Don't worry I'm sure the real one went into the witness protection program.

        Continuing to cling to such an obviously false conspiracy theory in the face of obvious truth isn't a Republican thing, it's a Trump thing.  It's why many of us don't take you, or him, seriously.

          I'm not a Trump supporter either.

          And the fact that I got ONE wrong is hardly evidence to your claim.
