After being instructed by NSA Director Mike Rogers to conduct a full FISA audit, the NSA compliance officer began querying DOJ and FBI activity. As the compliance investigation closed in on the operation, FBI officials grew nervous. Eventually contractor access to ongoing FISA intelligence was blocked effective April 18th, 2016.
We discover this activity from testimony given by Director Rogers, and from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats releasing a partially redacted FISC ruling in April 2017.
The FISC ruling details the events throughout 2016. When the full story is finally out, I think many people will understand why DNI Dan Coats made the unprecedented decision to release the court documents. The deliberate 2017 FISC transparency appears to have been part of a well developed anti-corruption strategy leading us all the way to today.
