A FISA Court Discussion

Over the last few months we have heard of the incompetence and abuses of the FBI when it has come to their application for FISA on Carter Page. Not to say that just one mistake or improper use would have major consequences, but there were 17 times the FBI misrepresented the information they presented to the FISC. As DOJ Inspector General Micheal Horowitz stated in his report, these were serial abuses in the surveillance of Carter Page. The failures of the FISA Court and the failures by the FBI are not just harmful to the President, they are harmful to all Americans. So what does this have to do with cybersecurity, well I get in to that and more in this week's episode.
