Partisan lawyer overseeing FISA reforms?
Great way to restore confidence.
(From The Washington Examiner)
Kris, a defender of the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation and critic of Nunes’s 2018 memo on alleged FISA abuses, was picked by James Boasberg, the new presiding judge over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, to serve as the court’s amicus curiae — a position that is supposed to provide impartial advice to the court. He will oversee the implementation of reforms following a scathing Justice Department watchdog report on serious errors found in the FBI’s efforts to wiretap Carter Page, an American foreign policy adviser who helped President Trump’s 2016 campaign.
