Svetlana’s guide to FISA Report. The long delayed report is finally out tomorrow. The contents will excite, frustrate and enrage in equal measure. The good news is once it is out of the way the real action can start. [THREAD]
The origins of this report are the tense stand off between then Chair of House Intel Committee Nunes and acting AG Rod Rosenstein. Nunes wanted to see the Halper papers. The IC were never going to let him. This investigation and report are the compromise. /2
The scope was narrow to avoid revealing the toxic nature of Halper’s work. The report took so long because it was hoped the scandal would go away before it was completed. The scandal just grew. Halper’s dubious intelligence is a key component of the invasive FISA applications. /3
Halper lures Page to the Cambridge (England) on July 11-12, 2016. Page appears in the Steele Dossier with false "intelligence" about secret Kremlin meetings on July 19, 2016. Halper's fingerprints all over that. First FISA on Page is based on this false information. /4
Halper had frequent contact with Page for months starting in July 2016 thru 2017. Contact intensified around time of each FISA renewal. The contact ended with the lapse of the final FISA. Yes, that’s right surveillance on Trump's team continued long after the election. /5
Remember there was no collusion. The eavesdropping found nothing.
Instead Halper found exculpatory evidence of innocence. That evidence was kept from the Court. /6
While Steele’s nonsense captures the headlines because it ties Comey up in knots, the crimes stem from Halper. His whole suite of intelligence on Flynn, Trump etc was just lies. /7
The FBI will claim they were duped. But anyone with half a brain and access to Google knows Halper is a wrong un. /8
But Horowitz is an auditor. His work is dull. The focus is finding breaches of procedures and individuals ignoring internal rules. Yawn. His job is to protect the IC so think HR dept of large corporation. So we are going to see criticism of individuals not the organizations. /9
The fun will start when Horovitz goes to the Senate. Maybe, just maybe, we will get answers. On Monday, I still believe, several of the pantomime villains will get roasted. But this is just the beginning not the end. /10
