Elder Patriot – This is what leading Democrats feared – The release of names that will result in the devastation of much of the Democrats’ Deep State anti-Trump network.
The memo does exactly that:
“Consistent with requirements under FISA, the application had to be first certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI. It then required the approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General (DAG), or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division.
The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by stature (50 U.S. Code § 1805(d)(1)) – Issuance of order) a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed by the FISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate find of probable cause. The-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Then-DAG Sally Yates, the-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ.
