Jim Jordan’s Big Idea on FISA Reform

Ohio Republican Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News to discuss his ideas for FISA reform in the wake of calls for improvements following FBI agents’ misconduct while investigating Trump campaign aides and associates.

Jordan is the Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Committee. The congressman is a leading sponsor of the reformed-minded USA Freedom Reauthorization Act of 2020. (Fox News)

The bill, last month, then returned to the House, with lawmakers poised to consider an amendment and pass the package with bipartisan support. The legislation at first was supported by GOP lawmakers including Jordan as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Attorney General Bill Barr.

But then President Trump weighed in, urging opposition “until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!” With Trump calling essentially for further examination of the Russia probe, the bill was tabled and lawmakers moved the effort to conference committee, which is meant to resolve differences and strike a FISA deal that can pass both chambers.

FISA reform became a priority for both Republicans and Democrats following a review from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who revealed significant inaccuracies and omissions by the FBI in a FISA warrant application to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in 2016.

Some examples of reform Jordan has proposed include the appointment of an adviser to represent all U.S. persons targeted by FISA if they are a federal office holder, a political candidate, a campaign employee or volunteer, or part of a media organization — unless there is probable cause showing they have engaged in espionage, terrorism, or proliferated weapons of mass destruction.

The Unconstitutional actions the FBI showed are entrenched too deep. Better to disband the Bureau and start over with clear Legislative and Executive oversight.

Now maybe Jordan knows more than the specialist on the subject, now the FBI IG had a full invesigation and said only that 17 minor infractions were found an that none of them would have changed the outcome of the investigation. Now when the FBI discovers that5 a Presidential campaign is having multiple contacts with Russian Inttelligence agents, thya re suppose to just roll over and sy, “SO WHAT< NO SKIN OFF OF MY NOSE." Now I wonder how Jordan would feel if the FBI investigated a Democrat who was in contact with the Russian intelligence agents, I o not trhink he would have a problenm with that in any way. The problem with the politics in this USA is everyone wants to be hard nosed and does not want to compromise on any thing, and the ones in the Republican party who are ready to set sdown and comprimise on a subject gets Trumps wrath, so nothing goes any place it started with the Republicans during Obama, where they would not talk about anything that was not totally in their corner.

Democrats that abused the FISA process to go after a duly elected president and anyone associated with him to try and influence an election, and then use this false narrative to impeach the President are criminals and should be doing time. There was a time in America
when the media didn’t care which party was involved they called them out on such nefarious tactics but today’s media is corrupt and biased to the extreme, protecting the Democrats, and allows them to believe they are above the law.

WHY NOT PUT THE FBI, UNDER THE CONTROL OF HOMELAND SECURITY. REMOVE THE TOP BUNCH, GIVE THEM THEM THE OPTION OF BEING AGENTS OR TERMINATE THEM. THE 99% OF THE FBI ARE BY ALL APPEARANCES ARE DECENT AMERICANS. IMAGINE THE SAVINGS!!!!!

Jordan, Jordan! And I used to really like you. Thought about moving to your area just to get a decent rep and then this ” include the appointment of an adviser to represent all U.S. persons targeted by FISA if they are a federal office holder, a political candidate, a campaign employee or volunteer, or part of a media organization” ………why only protection for govt and MSM peoples what makes them so worthy. What about Joe Citizen when the deep state comes after him? Like, say Roger Stone, Paul Mannefort, George Papadopoulos, and others, too many names to remember.

One person defending or looking at the charges changes nothing, those who are authorized to sign off on the investigation need to be a quorium and not just one person. Also there should be regulations that hold people responsible for what, how and who is investigated, as well as vetting everything.

Let the FISA Courts go away. They allowed themselves, the FBI, and the DOJ to become hopelessly corrupted. Unless there are wholesale imprisonments of those who abused the system for political purposes, including judges, the law is not worth the paper it’s printed on.

Let’s see, the only way to reform the FBI as well as the rest of federal government is to eliminate every democrat in government no matter what level they work at! This will end corruption!

A tongue can accuse and carry bad news. Fake News, and Democrats, are skilled liars, and often use lies to tear down their adversaries, or perceived foes. Now, did Obama stack the IRS? Did Obama, stack HEW? Did Obama, and the Democrats, stack the FBI? How about the FCC ,who does nothing to reign in perverted foul mouth TV personalities? Should Trump fire the top bosses of each organization, and replace them with honest, God fearing Patriots?
