Details continue to emerge about possible FISA abuses by Obama-era officials as we now know the FBI leaked information to the media, then used those stories to file for spy warrants.
That’s according to documents released Tuesday, which outlined closed-door testimony from former FBI Agent Jonathan Moffa, who appeared before two House committees last week.
While speaking in front of the House Oversight Committee and Judiciary Committee on Friday, Moffa admitted that he took part in the practice of leaking info to justify surveillance applications
However, Moffa did not confirm whether it was used for the Steele dossier.
On Monday, House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows tweeted “it was unreal to learn about the FBI’s practice,” and went on to say it makes Tuesday’s Ohr hearing even more crucial.
