Here It Is: How Many Inaccuracies And Omissions Were Found In The Carter Page FISA Application…And Which One Was The Worst

(Liberty Bell) – On Monday, the long-awaited FISA report from DOJ IG Michael Horowitz was released.

The most important subject of the report, the FISA application to spy on former Trump campaign advisor in 2016 was discovered to have 17 significant inaccuracies and omissions, as well as numerous others that were labeled as less significant.

This is, of course, what we have suspected all along.

Seven of the inaccuracies and omissions occurred in the first FISA warrant to spy on Page, while ten others were identified by the DOJ IG in subsequent reports, according to the Gateway Pundit.

There was one, however, that Horowitz claimed was the worst.

Here are the seven initial issues identified in the first FISA application, via TGP:

1. Omitted information that Carter Page worked for another government agency – the only agency that they talk of in this manner is the CIA.

2. Provided a statement on Christopher Steele that overstated his past and needed to be ran by Steele’s agent per the law but it wasn’t.

3. Omitted information from Steele’s source who was known as a ‘boaster’ and ’embellisher’.

4. Lied and stated that Steele did not provide an article to Yahoo News when he had and they knew it.

5. Omitted that Papadopoulos had stated that nobody in Trump campaign had collaborated with Russia.

6. Omitted Page’s words that he never met or worked with Manafort which was in contrast to report claiming they were working on a conspiracy with Russia.

7. Claimed Page was an agent of Russia but omitted statements that Page made that contradicted this assertion.

There were also ten issues associated with the subsequent renewal applications for the FISA warrant, paraphrased:

8. Omitted the fact that Steele’s primary sub source had made allegations that raised significant concerns with the reliability of his information used by Steele.

9. Omitted Pages prior relationship with another government agency and an OGC Attorney altered an email from Carter Page that stated that Page was a source to then say Page was not a source.

10. Omitted information that Steele had done things like ‘pursued people with political risk’, ‘didn’t always use the best judgement’, etc…

11. Omitted information from Bruce Ohr that Steele was paid by the Clinton campaign and Simpson was paying Steele and Steele was desperate not to see Trump get elected’.

12. Failed to update information that Simpson was hired by the Democrat Party and/or DNC.

13. Failed to correct assertion in FISA application that Steele did not give information to Yahoo.

14. Omitted the finding that Steele was suitable for continued operation based on information that his dossier was minimally corroborated.

15. Omitted Papadopolous information to that Trump campaign was not involved in DNC email hack.

16. Omitted Joseph Mifsud’s denials that he supplied information to Papadopoulos that suggested Trump campaign received information from Russia.

17. Omitted information that Page played no role in the Republican platform change on Russia’s annexation of Ukraine as alleged in the report.

Steele’s dossier was based on second-hand information from someone known as a “boaster” and “embellisher.”

This seriously undermine’s the FBI’s case that they had reliable information on which to justify spying on the Trump campaign.

TGP concludes, “The US was put through three years of hell because the FBI and DOJ chose to use information from a ‘boaster’ and ’embellisher’ to spy on candidate and then President Trump. Nothing to see here, move along…”
