(TNS) On Friday the Justice Department announced that the FBI, under fired Director James Comey and the outgoing President Obama, improperly obtained two surveillance warrants to continue spying on 2016 Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

According to the DoJ, the two warrants were “improperly obtained” — which is legal-speak for, someone lied in order to get them.
The Washington Times reported:
The department concluded two of the warrants were invalid because the FBI provided “insufficient predication to establish probable cause to believe that Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power.”
“The court understands the government to have concluded in view of the material misstatements and omissions that the court’s authorizations in (two applications) were not valid,” wrote James E. Boasberg, president judge of the FISC.
The “FISC,” of course, is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
The Justice Department did not make a determination on the other two FISA warrants obtained by Comey’s politicized FBI on Page, but the Times reports that the department is continuing to look at them. That likely means that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the “Spygate” probe, is examining them.
And we know his probe has turned into a criminal investigation.
Nevertheless, Rush Limbaugh on his nationally syndicated radio program noted on Friday that while Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Rod Rosenstein were signing off on bogus surveillance warrants and presenting fake ‘evidence’ to the FISA court in order to justify them, the objective was always the same: To overturn the 2016 election and get rid of President Trump.
And yet, he is the one currently on trial in the Senate, impeached for, among other things, “abuse of power.”
“Where are we? The Democrats and their media buddies would rather pretend that Donald Trump abused power in a phone call with the president of Ukraine and sweep this under the rug,” he said. “The initial and original operation of this coup — this silent coup designed to get Donald Trump — has never been able to stand the weight of truth and authenticity.
“The entire pretext for the so-called investigation of Donald Trump for colluding with Russia — the FISA warrants that opened up the spying — have now been admitted to as fraudulent,” he continued.
“The FBI and the FISA court now admit that they abused their powers, and all of the people involved in getting those FISA warrants applied for and signed off on — whether they’ve admitted to it or not — have now been caught up in abuse of power and fraud,” he said.
The Justice Department’s announcement on Friday was legitimate bombshell stuff in terms of news, and yet, it barely got a mention in the Democrat-owned ‘mainstream’ media. But that, too, is by design, Limbaugh noted; they can’t “sweep the whole thing under the rug because it’s already been swept under the rug.”
That’s because the fix has been in for President Trump and that remains the order of the day among the media elite who are beholden to the opposition political party.
And let’s never forget, lying to the FISA court while presenting false, misleading evidence, is an actual crime.
But the absurdity for impeaching Trump for “abuse of power” when he’s clearly the one who is the target of abuse of power is thick and laden with the putrid smell of The DC Swamp.
We continue to wait for justice to be served to those responsible for all of this. That said, the fact that Barr’s DoJ made public the announcement regarding the two improper FISA warrants involving Page, whether it was reported widely or not, is significant to that end.
