We reported in February that it was time we learned what entities Obama gave access to the US Intelligence database during his Administration. Today we didn’t learn these entities names but instead we learned that FBI Director Christopher Wray’s FBI would like to keep this activity going.
This all started with a stunning April 2017 report from the FISA Court received which received no publicity until nearly a year after it was released to the public. The report covered results of an investigation or audit into FISA searches made by Obama’s NSA, FBI and DOJ during Obama’s time in office.
On April 26, 2017, an unsealed FISA Court Ruling unveiled a number of criminal activities that Barack Obama’s FBI, NSA and DOJ participated in during his time in office. The report was actually completed before the 2016 election. Americans had a right to know about it at that time, but the report was kept confidential until April 2017.
The FISA Court Ruling showed widespread abuse of the FISA mandate. According to the report, Obama’s FBI, NSA and DOJ performed searches on Americans that were against their 4th Amendment rights. This went on for years. One paragraph in the report states that 85% of the Section 704 and 705(b) FISA searches made during the time of the audit (a few months in 2015) were non-compliant with applicable laws and therefore criminal.
