GOP Lawmaker: Comey, McCabe & Ohr Should Be In PRISON For ‘Committing Fraud Upon FISA Court’
If Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a former judge, had his way, ex-FBI Director James Comey, outgoing Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr would be in prison.
Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller reports:
A FISA court judge has grounds to hold Department of Justice officials including Bruce Ohr in contempt of court for making misrepresentations about the sources of information used to obtain a surveillance warrant against a Trump associate, a former judge and Republican congressman said.
“I think it’s important to know who the FISA judge was, and why with all the info he’s had for some time, he has not put anyone in jail for committing fraud on his court,” Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican who serves on the Committee on the Judiciary, told The Daily Caller News Foundation Friday.
“You shouldn’t be able to get quotes from Bruce Ohr or [former FBI Director Jim] Comey or [deputy director Andrew] McCabe because they ought to be sitting in jail for committing fraud upon the court,” he said.
As Byron York of the Washington Examiner reported Friday, “The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.”
In a sit down interview with Judge Jeanne earlier this month, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) hinted one of the memo’s biggest revelations is that senior FBI and Justice Department officials may have committed fraud upon the court.
As reported by The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, the House Intelligence Committee released their classified FISA memo today.
The Democrats are planning to vote on releasing the “counter-memo,” on Monday.
