The FBI’s abuse of power in spying on Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign is still rocketing through Washington.
And things are about to get a whole lot worse for the anti-Trump conspirators.
A judge took the FBI to task and now everyone involved is in hot water.
Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox and Friends and discussed the recent development that Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was going to investigate possible FISA abuses in the DOJ and FBI when they obtained a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Napolitano said he expected the IG to discover a “treasure trove” of wrongdoing.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said an investigation into the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court will yield a “treasure trove” of abuses, Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”
“The FBI was never perfect. Made up of human beings that have political aspirations and political ideas. But when it was confined just to law enforcement, it knew how to do its job. After 9/11, when the FBI was moved into intelligence-gathering as well as law enforcement, the abuses began to ramp up,” Napolitano said. “It’s not just Andrew McCabe. By the time McCabe got there, the concept of — You want a warrant? Go to FISA. They issue any warrant you want. That attitude among FBI and intelligence officials in the NSA was so rampant they all did it. Hence the FISA court awarding 99.9 percent of all warrants requested…
… “I’ve never heard of a ratio, a number that high. 99.9 percent. Because FISA meets in secret. It kept lowering the standards. And FBI people who knew, they couldn’t get a warrant from a judge like me where the standard is probable cause of crime. Go to FISA where the standard is probable cause of talking to a foreign person,” he concluded, adding:
I believe that the inspector general will find a treasure trove, not just McCabe and company, but that is the most extreme violation we know of because the target, the victim is the president of the United States. Though he was a candidate and then president-elect at the time. But he will find a treasure trove of abuses. Going to FISA, getting warrants, when the law did not justify it.”
Donald Trump has called this scandal worse than Watergate.
And it looks like the American people may finally get the truth.
