BOMBSHELL: Chairman Nunes Has Seen Clear Evidence of FISA ‘Abuse’ by FBI and DOJ Officials
Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) told fellow Republicans in closed-door meetings this week he has seen evidence that shows clear “abuse” of government surveillance programs by FBI and DOJ officials, Fox News reported.
Fox News reported:
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told Republican colleagues in two closed-door meetings this week he has seen evidence that shows clear “abuse” of government surveillance programs by FBI and Justice Department officials, according to three sources familiar with the conversations, raising more questions about whether the controversial anti-Trump dossier was used by the Obama administration to authorize surveillance of advisers to President Trump.
The California Republican made his comments in private meetings with GOP colleagues as he tried to round up votes in favor of renewing a key section of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, known as Section 702, which eventually passed in the House on Thursday.
Before the vote, Nunes told GOP lawmakers they could trust him that he has not seen abuse of that section of the law dealing with foreigners, but that other sections of the law have in fact been misused by government officials to conduct surveillance of Americans. Nunes vowed that he plans to address his concerns by trying to share the evidence with the entire House later this month, after the debate over Section 702 is complete, according to the three sources familiar with the conversations.
Nunes also said he would “read all 435 members of Congress into major abuses with other areas of FISA and will read members in ASAP” according to Fox News.
It was first reported by The Daily Caller that the House Intel Committee received all docs requested on the Russia dossier from the DOJ and FBI Monday.
According to the Daily Caller, Nunes and the House Intel Committee reviewed all FBI and DOJ docs on the dossier including the FISA apps.
Both Sara Carter and Sean Hannity reported this week Hillary’s phony Russia dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant in order to spy on Trump’s campaign.
Sara Carter reported:
Multiple sources told this reporter that the dossier was used along with other evidence to obtain the warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as FISC. The sources also stressed that there will be more information in the coming week regarding systemic “FISA abuse.”
Fox News’ Sean Hannity also reported that three separate sources confirmed to him the Russia dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s camp.
One very senior source said the dossier played “a significant role” in obtaining the warrant Hannity said on his radio show Wednesday.
Neither Sean Hannity nor Sara Carter disclosed their sources, however; it appears Chairman Nunes may be the ‘senior source’ they were referring to given he’s a top ranking member of the House Intel Committee.
In a bold move last week, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) called for the declassification of all docs related to the Russia dossier.
