    They are procedures put in place to ensure no unverified information makes its way on to a FISA application.

    "Presentation of ... unverified material to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to justify a wiretap would appear to violate crucial procedural rules, called “Woods Procedures,” designed to protect U.S. citizens."

    And they also used media articles. Why the hell is the FBI using press articles to get a FISA warrant? they are the FBI - the should be getting their own data.

    And of course the media article was a planted article by the Steele.

    Nothing to see here, the FBI must make their own rules as they go depending on the person being investigated. Hillary had to have had her own set of rules! Those Woods procedures appear to very encompassing but alas, it's Trump, they do whatever they want.

    When the truth surfaces on this sorry affair, I think it will turn out that the FISA process was illegally and intentionally abused by partisan left wing zealots within the FBI that hated Trump and were enabled and aided by political hacks within the Obama DOJ, the Crooked Hillary campaign, and even possibly the DNC. They may have even been aided by establishent R’s that hated the idea of a Trump Presidency and may have put aside their judgement to circumvent the vetting process because they were trying to save America from a duly elected President. It’s a just a matter of how far up within the Obama Administration this actually goes and will people go to jail.

    Just my guess.

    Possibly likely, but almost impossible to prove.

    All the evidence supports this so far. I want to really know what McCain's involvement is in all of this.

    Why not show everyone the FISA warrant?

    I mean, we have a guy writing a memo about the contents of something he's never even seen. We have a guy who actually saw the warrant saying the recounting of the contents by the person who never saw the warrant are wrong.

    And, in psycho uber-con world, this means the FBI is violating laws. Good times.

    So, since the uber-cons will willingly fight against reasonable steps, let's just look at the FISA warrants ourselves, so the uber-cons can tell us it doesn't say what it says.

    The Uber cons would just say it's a fake warrant. Only if tRump is not hurt will they accept it. Blinded by politics.

    And why the hell would a FISA judge not throw them out of the court when they pull out press articles?

    Better yet, let appoint a special independent prosecutor to investigate possible abuses, including but not limited to , the FISA warrant process, unmasking American Citizens, degree or level of spying on American citizens, events at the DOJ and Intelligence community before and after the Trump transition, leaking of classified material and any other partisan political influence in the process that goes back to the previous Obama Administration.

    The prosecutor should also investigate the validity and legitimacy or justification of the process used during the appointment of the Mueller prosecuting team.

    The existing Mueller Investigation proceeds without any political interference.

    As I guessed, discussion of Woods Procedures is trending on nutsack sites today. Presumably, also among the Russian troll-bots, as well, but I have not seen verification of that part of it.

    Actually, I posted a fairly thorough explanation last week of what the Nunes Memo needed to show to have any credibility. A discussion of Woods Procedures was included. Unfortunately, it is pretty clear that almost none of all y'all chose to read it. All I saw was snark from some of yinz. Sad.
