I don't know about you guys, but I'm really getting sick of all these agencies being used against us, paid for by us.
Illegal courts like fisa, the spying, the media, the actors playing pr, the taxes, the bs.
We are living in clownworld and financing a small group of people.
It's getting real annoying, I've got s#@% to do in life and am surrounded by a system wealth redistributing leeches.
Notably, a primary component of the Page application was the Steele dossier—without which, according to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, no FISA warrant on Page would have been sought.

If the cop investigating you sends text messages to his mistress saying your guilty. That doesn’t invalidate his investigation..
That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.
The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign.
Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.
This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

They used unverified Intel as the basis for unmasking United States citizens. This is the same group within the FBI lost the notes regarding a meeting with the ICIG regarding emails of Hillary's which were forwarded to a foreign intelligence (Chinese) organization.
Peter Strzok was central to all of this and should be facing seditious conspiracy charges.
The presiding judge of the FISA Court is Rosemary M. Collyer.
She is the judge who wrote the 99 page April 26, 2017 Memorandum Opinion and Order regarding the findings by NSA Mike Rogers.
This FISA Court ruling, unsealed by Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates, revealed some grave abuses. From the FISA Court ruling:
The October 26, 2016 Notice informed the Court that NSA Analysts had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had previously been disclosed to the Court.
The Court ascribed the government’s failure to disclose the IG and OCO reviews at the October 4, 2016 hearing [Obama’s NSD Director John Carlin – NOT Rogers] to an institutional “Lack of Candor” and emphasized that “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment Issue”.
A non-compliance rate of 85% raises substantial questions about the propriety of using of [Redacted – likely “About”] query FISA data.
There is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015-April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high rate.
The FBI had disclosed raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information, to a [Redacted].
Is largely staffed by private contractors.
The [Redacted] contractors had access to raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to the FBI’s requests.
The FBI discontinued the above-described access to raw FISA information as of April 18, 2016.
Their [contractors] access was not limited to raw information for which the FBI sought assistance – and access continued even after they had completed work in response to an FBI request.
The FBI had given the information to the private entity [Redacted] not to an assisting federal agency.
The Court is nonetheless concerned about the FBI’s apparent disregard of minimization rules and whether the FBI may be engaging in similar disclosures of raw Section 702 information that have not been reported.
The improper access granted to the [Redacted] contractors was apparently in place [Redacted] and seems to have been the result of deliberate decision-making.

I'm sure no Democrat will acknowledge this, instead they'll either claim it's false or ignore the topic.
Nice find tho, seems like those people running the FBI back then had no problem in using false information to get the FISA warrants.
But hey! Whatever it takes, right?
Why is it instantly true if it supports your wingerism?
She [Kavalec] quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”
Kavalec, two days later and well before the FISA warrant was issued, forwarded her typed summary to other government officials. The State Department has redacted the names and agencies of everyone she alerted.

How is this relevant when the Steele dossier was not the only thing submitted when applying for the fisa warrant???
Trump’s claim was that the Steele dossier was the primary/only evidence used to obtain the fisa warrant..
Well that wasn’t the case...
So how is one fbi official doubting the validity of the Steele dossier relevant? [/quote
please list what evidence was used to gain the third attempt at a FISA warrant for Carter Page. Remember, the first two were denied. Thanks in advance for listing the evidence you claim exists.
