Ex-DOJ Official Picked To Assist FISA Reform Was Ardent Defender Of FBIs Surveillance Of Carter Page
Daily Caller ^ | 1/11/2020 | chuck ross

Former DOJ official David Kris was picked Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms of its surveillance procedures in the wake of a damning inspector general’s report.

Kris was an ardent defender of the FBI’s surveillance of Carter Page. He was also a vocal critic of Republicans who suggested the FBI misled the surveillance court in its applications to wiretap Page.

In one essay, Kris endorsed a suggestion that Rep. Devin Nunes should face obstruction of justice charges.

Nunes told the Daily Caller News Foundation the choice of Kris is “shocking and inexplicable.”

former Justice Department official picked Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms of its surveillance procedures in the wake of a damning inspector general’s report was one of the many pundits during the Russia probe to defend the bureau’s surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

David S. Kris, a former assistant attorney general for national security, was also an outspoken critic of Rep. Devin Nunes and other congressional Republicans who accused the FBI of misleading the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in applications to wiretap Page.

An inspector general’s (IG) report released Dec. 9, 2019, largely vindicated Republicans and Page. The report identified 17 errors and omissions the FBI made in its four applications to surveil Page. The IG also said the FBI was unable to corroborate allegations that Page was a Russian agent.

Judge James E. Boasberg, who presides over the FISC, tapped Kris serve as amicus curiae for a review of the FBI’s handling of the Page surveillance warrants. In that role, Kris will “assist” the FISC in assessing the FBI’s implementation of a series of reforms to address the problems uncovered in the IG report.

Nunes and Page both panned the choice of Kris given his past commentary defending the FBI.

A slap in the face to POTUS, Barr and those Congressmen and Senators who called out the corrupt process. Maybe they could bring Comey back as an “outsider” to fix their problems...

If the corruption is deep enough, it will be impossible to root out, because all the “cleaning up” will also be done by corrupt people.

It’s time to throw the baby out with the bathwater. DC is terminal cancer to America. Cut it out or die.

“Obama’s Assistant Attorney General Tells Senate: Terrorists Captured on Battlefield Have Constitutional Rights” SNIPPET: ““Does that infer that these individuals have constitutional rights?” McCain asked Kris. “Ah, yes,” Kris answered. “What are those constitutional rights of people who are not citizens of the United States of America, who were captured on a battlefield committing acts of war against the United States?” McCain asked. “Our analysis, Senator, is that the due process clause applies to military commissions and imposes a constitutional floor on the procedures that the government sets on such commissions …” Kris said. “So you are saying that these...

WTH is happening here, AG Barr, President Trump??

Please pay attention to the corruption that is still going on.

When a person is honest it is hard to see the nefarious intentions and deeds of corrupt officials.

PRESIDENT TRUMP, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION, THIS GUY IS ANOTHER CHRISOPHER WRAY. DO NOT ACCEPT KRIS AS SOMEONE WHO WILL DO THE RIGHT THING.

Roberts picked this person to assist the reform?
*******************************************
No, Kris was picked by Judge James E. Boasberg, an Obama appointed District Judge. The compromised John Roberts, who claims that there is no such thing as an Obama judge, a few years ago named Boasberg to the FISA court. Last month Boasberg was elevated to preside over that Court. IMHO, the COVERUP CONTINUES.
