Nunes told SaraACarter.com Sunday, that “It’s a ridiculous choice. The FBI lied to the FISC, and to help make sure that doesn’t happen again, the FISC chose an FBI apologist who denied and defended those lies. The FISC is setting its own credibility on fire.”
(Sarah Carter) Former Justice Department official David S. Kris was selected by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed serious malfeasance within the FBI as it illegally spied on short term Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
The twist, Kris, is an open critic of ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes’ investigation into FISA abuse and defended Chairman Adam Schiff, D-CA, in his now debunked report on the FBI’s investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia. He’s an apologist for the FBI and according to multiple sources familiar with Kris he’s exactly what current FBI Director Christopher Wray will want to sweep the bureau’s malfeasance under a rug.
“He’s not going to do anything because in the end Kris doesn’t believe there was anything wrong with what went on at the FBI,” said a former law enforcement official. “His selection by the FISC is how bureaucrats protect themselves and could care less about the American people or the Constitution.”
So how is Kris supposed to be objective into ensuring reforms are implemented inside the FBI and for the most secretive and controversial court in the United States? He’s not.
