Former US Attorney Joe diGenova: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Is Under Investigation
WASHINGTON, DC – September 6, 2018
Joe diGenova, Gregg Jarrett and Sara Carter were on Sean Hannity Wednesday night to discuss the ongoing DOJ issues with: Bruce Ohr, the Carter Page FISA application and the institutionally corrupt DOJ and FBI.
Joe diGenova: It was obvious that a fraud was committed on the court… We can no longer trust the department under Rosenstein, who by the way, he’s got a big problem with FISA… He’s now under investigation and he can’t do FISAs anymore.
Hannity: Whoa! Rosenstein is under investigation?
Joe diGenova: Rosenstein is under investigation for things that involve the FISA warrants.
The issue of Rod Rosenstein being under IG investigation and possibly recused from current FISA procedures is not really a big deal, The Last Refuge wrote.
It was announced on March 28th, 2018, that Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating the potential for fraud/abuse in the Carter Page FISA application; Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein signed-off on one FISA extension; so as a matter of investigative position, Rosenstein’s activity is technically under IG investigation and he cannot participate therein.
“I believe that Mr. DiGenova is onto something, because when he brought the subject up, both Sean Hannity and Sara Carter were totally surprised by the news, which I think indicates that good ol’ Joe has some well-placed reliable sources that he keeps private, which isn’t surprising when you consider his background. Only God knows what the next episode of the Russian Collusion Follies will bring, all I know is, “keep your powder dry and make sure that you’ve stocked up with plenty of popcorn”!!, one of the commenters said.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978 created the FISA court and set up the rules for wiretapping of suspected spies. The court is actually a tribunal whose actions are carried out in secret. The tribunal has the authority to grant warrants for electronic surveillance. The court has 11 members, all federal judges. The judges serve seven-year terms. The chief justice of the U.S. Supreme court selects the judges.
The statute that created FISA Courts bars targeted electronic surveillance in the United States unless there is evidence that a foreign power or agent of a foreign power is involved. There also has to be evidence to the effect that an email address or phone number is being used by the foreign power or agent. In addition, the government must show that the information to be collected is "relevant" to any investigation of foreign espionage or terrorism.
USA Really has previously exposed fake DOJ Indictments.
