Tom Fitton: ‘Unfortunate But Not Surprising’ that Devin Nunes Is Reminding the FBI and DOJ of the Law
FITTON: "Well, I know I think it’s pretty darn interesting that you have an intelligence committee chairman having to remind the FBI and justice Department what the rules and the laws are. And pretty obvious rules and laws and the rule he was pointing to with the FBI is they got to make sure that they are presenting accurate information to the FISA the court is expected to rely on it. And of course they didn’t make sure it was accurate. They pretend it was accurate and arguably mislead the court. And on top of that. If indeed that was done, all sorts of criminal laws are violated. Including conspiracy, obstruction of justice and things like that. And you got to wonder why it is this Justice Department hasn’t taken action until now. Now, recall, we only know about this after the intelligence committee fought the justice Department and FBI for almost a year to get information about the background on the dossier. They covered up its origins. They didn’t want to turn it over to the Congress. And I guess it’s an unfortunate — it’s unfortunate but not surprising that they are having to be told now maybe you need to do an investigation and explain yourself in terms of violations of law and your own protocols. Griff: Well, Tom, on that point, how important is it that we all see the country see the application for that FISA warrant?"
