A former Justice Department official picked Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms of its surveillance procedures in the wake of a damning inspector general’s report was one of the many pundits during the Russia probe to defend the bureau’s surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

David S. Kris, a former assistant attorney general for national security, was also an outspoken critic of Rep. Devin Nunes and other congressional Republicans who accused the FBI of misleading the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in applications to wiretap Page.

The article goes on to state the following:

Judge James E. Boasberg, who presides over the FISC, tapped Kris serve as amicus curiae for a review of the FBI’s handling of the Page surveillance warrants. In that role, Kris will “assist” the FISC in assessing the FBI’s implementation of a series of reforms to address the problems uncovered in the IG report.

“It’s hard to imagine a worse person the FISC could have chosen outside Comey, McCabe, or Schiff,” Nunes, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said of the decision, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The choice is shocking and inexplicable.”

Meanwhile, Carter Page tweeted, “‘…the @TheJusticeDept’s national security division, @DavidKris, to help the court assess the government’s response’

“Why not just get another wacko @lawfareblog-ger, @benjaminwittes?”
