The FBI just issued a stunning termination announcement and the nation is shocked. President Donald Trump promised that he would drain the swamp, and recent changes at the FBI will help ensure that these abuses will never happen again. This is huge.
Appearing on Fox News, FBI Director Christopher Wray discussed action — including terminations — that had been taken to prevent the FISA process from being abused. Readers will remember that Obama’s FBI was granted a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign under false pretenses.
“I’ve put in place an entirely new leadership team,” said Wray. He also noted how the FBI has “accepted every finding and recommendation” in the IG report. “The most senior people involved in this activity … are long gone, either terminated, some during my tenure, or retired or resigned,” he added.
During the interview, Wray took some time to mention “over 40 corrective measures” that have been instituted as well, which are expected to go a long way towards preventing FISA abuse in the future. The measures include enhancements in training, oversight, and accountability.
Now, as Wray makes internal changes to the FBI’s culture, attention is shifting to the ongoing investigation by Attorney General William Barr and his special appointee, U.S. Attorney John Durham, into the origins of the Trump-Russia ‘collusion’ hoax.
There is no telling what Durham will end up reporting — or whether he will refer certain Obama-era officials for prosecution — but it is safe to assume that we could find out even more about the corruption that led to improper surveillance of Trump aide Carter Page during the 2016 campaign.
