Making the DOJ investigate the FBI for fraud in the Russian collusion witchhunt is absolutely necessary.
Will the DOJ investigate the people involved in using the “Trump dossier” as grounds for FISA warrants? AG Jeff Sessions indicated to the Washington Examiner and to Fox News that the answer is “Yes.” Sessions had recused himself from all investigation of Russian collusion. But apparantly he now thinks he must investigate the investigators.
The Hill reports, “Sessions says DOJ will investigate alleged FISA abuses.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that the Justice Department will investigate potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
“Yes, it will be investigated,” Sessions told reporters at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which oversees FISA warrants, according to the Washington Examiner.
He said looking into any abuses is the “appropriate thing” to do.
Sessions’s remarks follow allegations from President Trump last year that Obama administration officials misused their FISA authority to wrongly surveil members of his transition team.
It is not clear if Sessions has opened a formal investigation into the matter, but he said the Justice Department’s inspector general would take it up.
Sessions similarly said on Fox News on Sunday that his department would look into the process for obtaining warrants under FISA.
