The court approved 71 percent of surveillance applications submitted under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 2017, according to a report from the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. Thats down significantly from the 79 percent approved in 2016.
The number of applications declined 8.5 percent, from 1,752 in 2016 to 1,614 the following year.
The FBI and Justice Department abused the FISA process by relying heavily on the unverified Steele dossier in applications to spy on President Donald Trumps former campaign adviser, Carter Page, Republican lawmakers have alleged. FISA warrants are granted when there is probable cause to believe the target is acting as an agent of a foreign power.
The first FISA warrant was granted against Page on Oct. 21, 2016. The warrants were renewed three times in January, April and June 2017.
Page was illegally wiretapped since U.S. officials relied on the dossier to obtain the FISA warrants, the former Trump campaign adviser alleged.

It's difficult for Trump to know what executive branch employees are going to do after they sit in a new chair. Some in the GOP seem to hate the idea of firing any of them, and if Trump fired Wray, he would have to get through resistance from both parties to get a replacement. Who replaced McCabe?
It's going to take a very, very VERY long time to
FISA Warrants, FBI investigations. Using the power of the government to "meddle" in domestic politics is not only illegal and antithetical to American principles, but it also keeps these agencies from protecting us from real foriegn threats.
FISA approvals for ME, but NOT for Thee
The Deep State is called DEEP for a reason. PLEASE CLEAN OUT ALL THE CORRUPTION SO WE CAN START TO TRUST OUR GOVERNMENT AGAIN.
White liberal elites told the FBI 'the enemy' was middle-class, middle-aged white Christian American men'. They offered NO proof to the public because even the corrupt press would have debunked these SPLC lies.
It's time to rethink the existence of deep state criminals and the organizations they infiltrated.
On the Judicial Watch video (post above), Tony Schaeffer suggested reorganizing the FBI by canning the “upper strata” and merging the FBI with the US Marshalls or DOD.
Communists and useful idiots have no business being in ANY part of our government no matter where they're from - from either University of Chicago, Columbia, and/or everything and place in between.
True, but not only are they in the government, but they think they are our rulers, and seek even more power.
I suspect this is both good and bad: Good = Rodgers; Bad = Swamp.
Regardless, there should be no secret court in a Constitutional Republic - ever!
