Rosenstein Acknowledges Flaws in FBI Surveillance

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee today that he would not have signed off on a FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page if he had known at the time how flawed the warrant application process had been.

Rosenstein’s testimony comes as President Trump and his congressional allies are trying to nullify the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation code-named Crossfire Hurricane. (National Review)

“If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the application?” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham asked Rosenstein during his testimony.

“No, I would not,” Rosenstein replied.

In December, the Justice Department’s inspector general concluded in a report that the FBI omitted crucial details in its requests for warrants to surveil Page, saying the agency neglected to inform the FISA court that the controversial Steele dossier, cited in applications to spy on Page, was unreliable.

Rosenstein defended his approval of the warrants, however, saying that “every application I approved appeared to be justified based on the facts it alleged,” and blamed the FBI, which he said “was supposed to be following protocols to ensure that every fact was verified” but failed to do so.

  2. Rod is a PIECE OF SHIT…A LIAR…He should be brought up on charges and given the same respect General Flynn was. This was nothing more then a coup against the President of the United States led by RODDIE BOY..Why was the Mueller team even assembled Rod??? Piece of garbage..

  3. So, as I understand it, the man in charge did NO background checking on his own, did NOT read fully the information given to him to support serious allegations, and signed off on documents which would put any other legal citizen behind bars. And his actions DID put other NOT GUILTY citizens in jail and COMMITTED MULTIPLE ILLEGALITIES by his own admission. Well, off to jail with you. It would be in your best interest to RAT on others within the sphere of illegalities.

  4. Aaa … mistakes … aaa … were made. The surveillance protocols were … aaa … not followed exactly as the … a …. guidelines state. The … aaaaa … mistaken omissions of … a … exculpatory evidence were … of negligible impact on the overall framing … aaaaa … judicial process … in all of the cases that we … aaa … they handled. The judge’s outrage … errr … mild pique … at the discovery of these innocent errors, omissions, and … errrr … “shaded” truths, was a trifle overdone, and he should be reprimanded in a judicial inquiry by the Ninth Circuit Court of San Francisco. As always, we Demorats, as the majority 85% of the agencies involved, are Chin … errr … American patriots, and we wish to see our country get “what’s coming to it”. That is the extent of my statement.

  5. This guy is a lying snake in the grass. He was in on the whole scheme and should be prosecuted–but of course he won’t because the law doesn’t apply to the deep state. What a shame!

  6. So he’s saying he was just an, over-payed, incompetent & lazy clown, with a badge, and not a crooked, Deep-State, operative?

  7. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is testifying to cover his DoJ. The FBI will testify to cover itself. This is the same old government swamp system of covering oneself and blaming the next guy. Someone needs to stand up, cut through this pile of crap, and stick it to ALL the culprits. Can Lindsey Graham be the man? Will Bill Barr stand up and save this Republic?

  8. Ignorance is no excuse for malfeasance. Rosenstein should have verified the application. And after he knew it was faulty, he should have spoken out which he did not. He is culpable! Prosecute!
