SWAMP: Ex-DOJ official picked to assist FISA reform was ardent defender of FBIís surveillance of Carter Page
A former Justice Department official picked Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms of its surveillance procedures in the wake of a damning inspector general’s report was one of the many pundits during the Russia probe to defend the bureau’s surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Rep. Devin Nunes joined “Sunday Morning Futures” to discuss the House Republicans investigating origins of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint.
Nunes' entire appearance is worth watching, but skip to the 3:20 mark for his thoughts on the selection of David Kris to oversee FBI reforms of its surveillance procedures.
The money quote: “The FISA court must be trying to abolish itself.”
