    FBI Lawyer Drops BOMBSHELL Testimony Comey, McCabe, Yates Broke Protocol To Push Page

    FBI Lawyer Drops BOMBSHELL Testimony: Implicates Comey, McCabe, Yates Broke Protocol To Push Page FISA
    .
    As we move closer and closer to the completion of the IG report on how the Trump-Russia investigation was handled, including the probable misuse of the FISA court, we are seeing more relevant Congressional testimony from top officials released.
    .
    One session revealed this week involves Trisha Anderson, an FBI lawyer who signed off on the Carter Page warrants. She testified in August of 2018 on her role and what she knew regarding how the process went down.
    .
    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 [McCabe] level on our side and through the DAG [Yates] on the DOJ side.” Yates had already signed the application by the time it made it to Anderson’s desk.
    .
    In other words, things were done completely backwards. Instead of going through the normal checks and balances, a bunch of political appointees at the top approved the application before anyone else got ahold of it. Sally Yates, representing the DOJ, had signed off on it before the FBI’s legal department had even done their analysis.
    .
    A major check on fraudulent FISA applications was simply skipped. Anderson stressed that this was not normal.
    .
    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.
    .
    We also learn that James Baker had personally edited the application.
    .
    “The General Counsel [Jim Baker] … personally reviewed and made edits to the FISA, for example,” Anderson said. “The Deputy Director was involved in reviewing the FISA line by line. The Deputy Attorney General over on the DOJ side of the street was similarly involved, as I understood, reviewing the FISA application line by line.”
    .
    What all this does is firmly implicate James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, and James Baker. There can be no passing of the buck as they chose to ignore normal procedure and push forward a FISA application in a completely atypical way.
    .
    This gives us a clue as to why James Comey and James Baker decided to go on media tours the last few weeks, gnashing their teeth over any possible investigation into their wrongdoing.

    My Thoughts
    .
    When they used a false document to request a FISA warrant that they swore an oath that it was verified and truthful, it’s not a long stretch to consider that everyone who signed the four FISA warrants, need to be indicted, charged and held accountable for their criminal actions.

    GLOVES OFF: Sanders Terrifies James Comey With Hint About What AG Barr May Do To Him
    .
    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders likely terrified fired FBI Director James Comey on Sunday with a comment about what Attorney General William Barr may do to him.
    .
    During an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press” with host Chuck Todd, Sanders said the Trump administration “already” knows that there was a high level of corruption at the FBI.
    .
    Sanders suggested that Barr will expose corruption at the FBI under Comey’s leadership and that he will be held accountable, which could possibly mean criminal charges if Comey broke any laws.
    .
    “We already know that there was an outrageous amount of corruption that took place at the F.B.I. They leaked information. They lied. They were specifically working trying to take down the president, trying to hurt the president,” Sanders said.
    .
    “We’ll leave the final call up to the attorney general and he’ll get to the bottom of it. But we think Americans deserve the truth. The president’s asked for that. And we should expect nothing less,” Sanders added.
    .
    “It sounds like the president has already determined the outcome. It doesn’t sound like you want him to do his job,” Todd said, referring to Barr.
    .
    “Chuck, that’s the reason that he’s granted the attorney general the authority to declassify that information, to look at all the documents necessary is so that we can get to the very bottom of what happened,” Sanders responded.
    .
    “Once again, we already know about some wrongdoing. The president’s not wrong in that. But he wants to know everything that happened and how far and how wide it went.”
    .
    Last week, Trump gave Barr the green light to declassify key documents related to the Obama administration spying on the president’s 2016 campaign.
    .
    The president issued a memo to the attorney general last Thursday giving him the legal authority to release certain documents to the public pertaining to the surveillance of his campaign.
    .
    Barr has been busy lately trying to get to the bottom of the Russia hoax and how all of this happened to Trump.
    .
    Earlier this month, it was reported that Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to investigate how the Russia witch hunt began and whether the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016 was legal.
    .
    Barr has also made it clear that Robert Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
    .
    Barr and Mueller have made it clear that there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
    .
    Now the tables have turned, Comey and some Obama officials are likely very worried about what could be revealed to the American people.
    .
    They could all also be closer than ever before to finally being held accountable!

    Good, I hope Comey gets everything that's coming to him; he's a piss poor example of what the FBI stands for.
