It was kind of a big day Wednesday with the Senate’s vote to acquit President Trump taking up much of the news cycle, but in other business, FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the House Judiciary Committee, and CBS News’ Catherine Herridge is reporting that Wray acknowledged to the committee that yes, there was illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign via bogus FISA applications.
We already know that the FISA court ruled that at least two of the applications to spy on Carter Page were invalid and not lawfully authorized.
READ: Key section judiciary hearing @RepRatcliffe that IG Report/DOJ/FISA court “..acknowledge that this was illegal surveillance with respect to at least several of these FISA applications because there was no probable cause or proper predication. Correct? “ Wray “Right” #Durham

Huge admission. Assuming James Comey et al are lawyered up. pic.twitter.com/tzy00TgafG

perhaps Wray should hold a press conference and make an effort to correct the record for our President, who has been investigated by partisan authorities on charges that turn up time and time again, to be largely media hype. Are you interested in a public record correction Wray?

Right! No probable cause except that Trump was not supposed to be President and they were going to make sure he wasn't.

So the AG is busy filing charges, RIGHT???

So long as Wray is Director of the FBI trust in the FBI can never be regained. Just a fact of life.

Wray needs to go I'm sorry but I don't feel he's trying to clean up the @FBI it's more like he tries his damndest to cover up for their criminal misdeeds

Corruption confirmation from Wray finally.

But no one is going to jail … odd how the organism protects itself

The FBI admits to Illegal surveillance, but says they are really really sorry.

Sounds like a bunch of Mueller's indictments and convictions might get reversed? Fruit of the poisoned tree?
— Matt Graves (@graveytrain016) February 6, 2020
All the convictions that resulted from this surveillance should be thrown out!

What needs to happen now, and what the American people need to see, is a punishment phase for what these people have done. Wray fixing some sort of procedural issue is not enough. There was a treasonous coup and we do not want them to get away with it without punishment.

And… We are all waiting.

So now what ? Let's see some action

Might explain why Trump told Ratcliffe at this presser that they will be using him A LOT this year. 🤔
