The FBI didn’t just steamroll over the rights of an American citizen, they treated a sitting judge like a chump. Sounds like that judge is royally PO’D.
What judge are we talking about? None other than the FISA court judge they approached with a warrant for spying on Carter Page.
We see a relevant tweet from about a year ago… (h/t Dan Bongino)
Flashback: @RepMarkMeadows asked FISC Judge Rosemary Collyer in Oct. 2018 to review accuracy of FBI's FISA applications. (Collyer revealed in letter today that court was unaware of many FBI omissions until last week) https://t.co/OSdZULOYvW

But it’s only NOW that the Horowitz report has unearthed that what REALLY happened has come to light.
Christopher Wray and the FBI have until January 10th to fix what’s wrong with FISA.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote in her four-page order. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”
“As [FBI Director Christopher Wray] has stated, the inspector general’s report describes conduct by certain FBI employees that is unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI as an institution,” the bureau responded in a statement Tuesday night. “The director has ordered more than 40 corrective steps to address the report’s recommendations, including some improvements beyond those recommended by the IG.”
…While Collyer’s order did not specify exactly what reforms the FBI needed to implement to its policies for obtaining permission to wiretap people under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, the order did say that the FISA court will weigh in on whether the reforms are deemed sufficient. — Source: FoxNews
