Did you leave something out from your opinion piece?Why hasn't Mueller investigated the Fisa abuse? Take a guess, lefties.
Other sources who worked for Mueller at the time told me the court's concerns arose in 2002 and 2003 - shortly after America was stunned by the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks - when the FISC learned the FBI had omitted material facts from FISA warrant applications in more than 75 terrorism cases that dated back to the late 1990s.
Most of the omissions occurred in FBI work that pre-dated Mueller's arrival, the sources said. But the court wanted assurances the new sheriff in town was going to stop such widespread abuses.
Mueller told the court the FBI had created a new system called the Woods Procedures - named for the FBI lawyer who drafted them - to ensure FISA warrant applications were accurate and did not omit material information, according to Anderson's congressional interview.
