Nunes Memo Raises Question: Did FBI Violate Woods Procedures?

Nunes Memo Raises Question: Did FBI Violate Woods Procedures?

This Opinion Piece comes from The Hill.

By Sharyl Attkisson

For all the debate over the House Republican memo pointing to alleged misconduct by some current and former FBI and Justice Department officials, one crucial point hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.

And it relates in an unexpected way to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The point is: There are strict rules requiring that each and every fact presented in an FBI request to electronically spy on a U.S. citizen be extreme-vetted for accuracy — and presented to the court only if verified.

There’s no dispute that at least some, if not a great deal, of information in the anti-Trump “Steele dossier” was unverified or false. Former FBI director James Comey testified as much himself before a Senate committee in June 2017. Comey repeatedly referred to “salacious” and “unverified” material in the dossier, which turned out to be paid political opposition research against Donald Trump funded first by Republicans, then by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

  1. The Woods Procedures: “They were instituted in April 2001 to “ensure accuracy with regard to … the facts supporting probable cause” after recurring instances, presumably inadvertent, in which the FBI had presented inaccurate information to the FISA court.” One has to wonder how many people have been wrongly prosecuted and even incarcerated using “fruit of the poisoned tree”? And who wrote the exacting standards that are supposed to be used by the FBI in order to obtain that FISA warrant? Robert Mueller. SMH. Sheryl Atkinson hits the ball out of the park again–the MSM is choosing to overlook something that should be front-page news.

  2. The FBI and the DOJ was morphed into one entity. It’s only purpose is to collect data without a warrent to profile and threaten IT(Intended targets).
    In conjunction with federal agencies and private security agencies, they work to silence the constitutional opposition.
    435,000 American citizens have claimed to have been stalked by 3 or more individuals posted on the DOJ’s official site. “dissruption” and/or “gang stalking” is becoming the extra-judicial punishment of choice, as in east germany, england, and russia.
