by Chuck Ross, The Daily Caller:
- Former DOJ official David Kris was picked Friday to oversee the FBI’s reforms of its surveillance procedures in the wake of a damning inspector general’s report.
- Kris was an ardent defender of the FBI’s surveillance of Carter Page. He was also a vocal critic of Republicans who suggested the FBI misled the surveillance court in its applications to wiretap Page.
- In one essay, Kris endorsed a suggestion that Rep. Devin Nunes should face obstruction of justice charges.
- Nunes told the Daily Caller News Foundation the choice of Kris is “shocking and inexplicable.”
