In 2001, the FBI implemented new protection for US citizens after federal agents got caught repeatedly submitting incorrect information to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to obtain wiretaps.
The "Woods Procedures," named for the FBI agent who helped devise them, were supposed to be strict checks and balances that required every fact submitted in support of a wiretap application be verified all the way to the top of the FBI. If a single fact wasn't verifiable, the application was supposed to be withdrawn or the "fact" removed.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz found the FBI violated multiple Woods Procedures rules in the agency's multiple, controversial wiretaps of former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

The government's policy of hiring the best and brightest from liberal Ivy league schools and State Department Foreign Service schools is not serving us well. How can these people be servants of The People, if they are socialists who dislike America, and are loyal to the bureaucracy not Liberty?
I run into them at every level of government, and they vigorously resist transparency and FOIA laws.
As Theodore Roosevelt said: "There is not in all America a more dangerous trait than the deification of mere smartness unaccompanied by any sense of moral responsibility."

The Deep State IS alive and well in 🇺🇸 USA!! All involved MUST be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! If there is no accountability Our Nation IS Lost !!

And even if they hadn’t been fully converted by the leftists in school, their conversion would be completed by the bureaucrats they work with. Any FBI agent who by any means brings down a conservative pro-American president is assured a high ranking permanent job in the agency and a million dollar job with CNN upon retirement.
