The report is a “Semiannual Assessment” of whether US intelligence agencies, including the FBI, followed proper procedures under FISA section 702. Completed in September 2021, the document remained “Top Secret” until July 18, 2022.
Not surprisingly, the 82-page “Joint Assessment” produced by the Department of Justice and Office of the Director of National Intelligence is completely whitewashed. What this assessment continuously refers to as “compliance incidents” are, in fact, instances where FBI agents violated federal law and, in some cases, the constitutional rights of Americans.
The “reporting period” during which these violations occurred was from June 2019 until November 2019. At the time, the FBI’s Trump-Russia collusion hoax had blown wide open, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz was investigating the Carter Page FISA warrants, and the Trump impeachment witch hunt was well underway. Yet, this report repeatedly excuses these unlawful “compliance incidents” as being caused by “misunderstanding” and “error.”
