The NSA says it stopped tracking cellphone locations without a warrant

  The NSA says it stopped tracking cellphone locations without a warrant Last year the Supreme Court ruled, in a 5-4 decision, that a search warrant is required for law enforcement to perform cellphone tower searches to track someone's location. The Daily Beast reported on a letter sent by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to Senator Ron Wyden affirming that ever since that Carpenter decision, the "Intelligence community" has not sought cell-site location data or GPS records without a warrant. It had been doing that, claiming authority under the Title V of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) / Section 215 of the Patriot Act.

It ' s heavily redacted but still significant The ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, told NPR on Monday that there was more evidence beyond the Steele reporting in the FISA application, but that he could not discuss what it was because it remains classified.

But with Carter Page we can make it up on him and we can supply the FISA court with a doctored warrant to essentially permit spying on the Trump campaign. And if you defend Carter Page , why, you better not because he worked with Trump. The Washington Post has confirmed CNN had the original

Leaks last week about the forthcoming report on the FBI's use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to wiretap Page, an American citizen who was suspected to be a Russian asset but was never charged, show the DOJ watchdog found errors were made. Ultimately, there was no abuse of power by top officials due to bias against President Trump.

Page was interviewed Saturday by CNN's Michael Smerconish, who said the reports indicate "sloppiness" in the Trump-Russia investigation. Page responded by calling Horowitz's inquiry "sloppy."

"The keyword that you just said is sloppiness, right? And unfortunately, the way that this inspector general report has been assembled and completed over the last couple of years and particularly over the last few months, is completely sloppy," Page said. "It’s only one side’s perspective."

Trump's closest allies have ramped up expectations of the FISA report for months, predicting it will uncover an effort to monitor and undermine Trump's 2016 campaign, particularly with how the FBI relied on an unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele to obtain the warrants to tap into Page's devices. During an interview with Fox News on Friday, Trump himself said he has heard Horowitz's report will be "historic" and surmised a "spying" plot against his campaign reached the "highest levels" of government.

The reports that emerged last week revealed an FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham for allegedly altering a document related to the wiretapping of Page. This lawyer was later identified as Kevin Clinesmith, who left the bureau two months ago after being interviewed by Horowitz. But the biggest takeaway, based on sources familiar with a draft of the inspector general's findings, has been that Horowitz did not determine that political bias affected the FBI's counterintelligence investigation.

Page urged some caution, saying "we'll see" if the reports are the complete story. After all, Horowitz revealed his team interviewed 100 witnesses and reviewed more than a million documents as part of his year-and-a-half investigation, and his report is said to be over 500 pages long.

"Most of these people were involved in this coup-kabal from the very beginning. So, it’s been very sloppy all along," Page said.

Horowitz confirmed Thursday that he expects his final report to be released to the public on Dec. 9 and is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee two days later. The inspector general has predicted minimal redactions after a classification review and a final session for witnesses to provide feedback.

Appeals court refuses to revive Carter Page lawsuit .
The former Trump adviser claimed he was a victim of terrorism after media reports linked him to Russian efforts to influence the campaign.With just a week to go before release of a hotly-anticipated Justice Department watchdog report on the FBI’s targeting of Page in a series of surveillance warrants, a federal appeals court made evident Monday that it saw little, if any, merit in Page’s civil suit.
