The Senate has released Crossfire Hurricane transcripts. Excerpt from discussion during Joe Pientka (SSA1) testimony: The “original Woods file is missing” from the 1st Carter Page FISA application.
After Steele was closed as a witness, Pientka used Bruce Ohr as an intermediary to continue access with Steele. The introduction to Ohr came from Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Summer 2016: The FBI handling agent knew “without a doubt” that Steele’s reporting was political. “It was completely obvious that this information intended to be used by one of the parties against the other.”
The Woods Procedures require the FBI to create a “Woods File” to document in one place the basis for each factual assertion in an application.
