James Comey signed 3 warrants based on dossier he called “salacious and unverified”

Former FBI Director James Comey lashed out at the release of the secret FISA memo yesterday. Considering how the memo incriminates him it’s no wonder why.

“That’s it?” Comey tweeted after the memo was released. “Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.”

Comey Is Implicated.

The memo showed that the FBI and the Department of Justice relied heavily on an opposition research dossier compiled by British spy Christopher Steele, who told the FBI that he was “desperate” to not have President Donald Trump elected.

Steele created the dossier as part of opposition research for the Democrat Party and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and the FBI knew it.

But the FBI did not disclose that information to the FISA court in order to get warrants to spy on Carter Page, a member of the president’s campaign team, and subsequently the campaign itself.

The FBI also did not disclose to the FISA court that it had deemed Steele unreliable and dismissed him.

Nor did it tell the court that Steele continued to give information to the FBI via former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr, whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, the company paid by the Democrats for the dossier.

And three of the FISA warrants that were obtained with the help of the unverified dossier were signed by none other than Comey.

The same Comey who told President Donald Trump, prior to him taking office, that the dossier was “salacious and unverified,” The Washington Times reported.

Tucker Carlson Nails Comey.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson teed off on Comey on Friday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“Comey took to Twitter today not to … address the facts the memo raised, but to mock the release of the memo like the aspiring MSNBC contributor he apparently is,” Carlson said.

He continued:

He didn’t bother to explain how it was ‘dishonest and misleading.’ Of course he didn’t. Comey, who leaked his notes on private meetings with the president in a petty revenge move after being fired, is now declaring it beyond the pale somehow for Congress to carry out its constitutional duties of oversight of the FBI…

You know what’s “dishonest and misleading?” Using a source that you’ve determined is untrustworthy to justify a warrant in front of a court.

Apparently, Comey’ high moral standards weren’t meant to be applied against his own agency.

Or maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t actually have any standards besides self-preservation.
