No, the FBI didn’t just make “errors and omissions” (51 of them) in their FISA applications targeting the Trump campaign. The FISA Court says it was deception.
As reported by John Solomon in JUST THE NEWS, U.S. District Judge James A. Boasberg, the new chief of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, issued an order last week suspending all FBI and DOJ lawyers involved in the Russia “collusion” case from appearing before his court until it’s determined whether or not they engaged in misconduct. (I would note that at this point, many are no longer there.) Boasberg blamed senior officials in a scathing rebuke, saying, “The frequency and seriousness of these errors in a case that, given its sensitive nature, had an unusually high level of review at both DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have called into question the reliability of the information proffered in other FBI applications.”
In other words, we can’t believe the FBI. To cut to the chase, Judge Boasberg said there’s “little doubt that the government breached its duty of candor to the Court with respect to those applications.” The judge here is accusing the FBI of lying to the FISA court.

The Democrats are pushing Biden over Bernie because they think voters see Joe as an electable moderate rather than a crazy, far-left socialist. So the Instapundit blog rounded up some recent headlines to remind us of a few of the “moderate” positions Joe has taken recently.
These include going national with the disastrous AB5 law that’s destroying California's gig economy and countless contract workers’ jobs just to help unions; banning plastic bags, and, what the heck, all plastics; adopting the radical “Green New Deal” which Joe cheerfully admits would destroy energy industry jobs; expanding Obamacare; putting fossil fuel executives in jail; raising taxes big time; and putting “Beto” O’Rourke in charge of gun policy. If that's a "moderate," who would you call a radical?!
Oh, wait: I remember. Even with all those far-left positions, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complains that Biden is too conservative to fit in with today’s Democratic base. It’s a scary thought, but she might actually be right for a change.
I wanted to make sure you also read this:
Today, six more states hold primary elections: Missouri, Mississippi, Washington state, Idaho, North Dakota and the biggest prize for the Democrats, Michigan, with 125 pledged delegates. You can tell how important Michigan voters are to the Democrats because, unlike during the 2016 election, their eventual nominee will have actually visited there.
Michigan is being called a “make-or-break” state for Bernie Sanders by pundits who like to use political clichés. He scored an upset victory over Hillary there in 2016 that revitalized his campaign (still didn’t get the nomination, though), and is hoping for another one, as if that would convince the Democrats to let him have the nomination this time. Biden is well ahead in polls, but polls can be unreliable, and with so many people voting weeks early these days, last minute twists like “Joe-mentum” or Bernie’s mancrush on Castro or Joe’s alarming word salad incidents might not have as much effect on the vote as you’d suspect.
Both candidates have been focusing hard on Michigan to win it back from Trump by using populist appeals to convince blue collar workers that their policies will destroy blue collar jobs slower than the other Democrat’s policies would.
I will just remind the voters in all these states that if neither of these ranting old fabulists excite them, Tulsi Gabbard is still in the race. To those who say, “But she can’t win,” I’d reply, “She could if everyone put a check mark next to her name on the ballot.” But, hey: it’s your primary, even it does occasionally more resemble a rerun of “The Walking Dead.”
Meanwhile, Cory Booker is the latest failed Democratic Presidential hopeful to join the effort to shore up Joe Biden and keep the nomination away from Bernie Sanders.
So far, Booker, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, Bloomberg, O’Rouke, Deval Patrick, John Delaney, Tim Ryan and Kamala Harris have endorsed Biden. There are suspicions that Harris is really not so keen on Biden (she nearly sank his campaign by branding him as a racist), but she’s angling to be his Attorney General.)
Only Bill DeBlasio and Marianne Williamson have endorsed Sanders, with Elizabeth Warren still on the fence.
Say, do you know who Warren should endorse? Tulsi Gabbard. If she doesn’t, it proves she’s just a sexist like all the Democrats who didn't vote for Warren.
This Just In: Lady who likes to insult the guests in her House can’t figure out why they don’t want to come to her St. Patrick’s Day tea party.
I love the arrogant obliviousness of Pelosi’s spokesperson huffing, “One would think that the White House could set petty, partisan politics aside for this historic occasion.”
Know what’s also a “historic occasion”? State of the Union Addresses. Rrrriiiiiip!!!
