 Carter Page’s FISA-Related FBI ‘Woods File’ Documents Mysteriously ‘Disappeared’ and Had to be ‘Recreated’ by Mueller’s Team

The original Woods file on Trump’s former campaign advisor Carter Page mysteriously disappeared more than two years ago.

The “Woods Procedures” were designed to protect American citizens to “ensure accuracy with regard to … the facts supporting probable cause” after recurring abuses where the FBI presented inaccurate information to the FISC.

At the time, the Woods procedure was overseen by FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka and former FBI Counter-intel chief Peter Strzok — the same FBI agents who ambushed General Mike Flynn in January of 2017.

According to sources, he has been speaking and cooperating with Justice Department officials and members of Congress. He still maintains active employment with the FBI, unlike Strzok, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former Assistant Director Bill Priestap, among others.

“The real story here is how does the FBI, Special Counsel’s Office and Inspector General figure out if the Wood’s file went missing through malice or though incompetence,” the source added. “Either answer doesn’t reflect well on this investigation.”

Earlier this year, The Gateway Pundit reported Comey’s Crossfire Hurricane team inserted blank pieces of paper into an FBI file used to document support for the FISA warrants on Carter Page which was cited in a barely-noticed footnote in Horowitz’s report.
