"FBI says audit found only minor errors in FISA warrants"

From CNN, via the NACDL's News-of-Interest:

The FBI said it found only "minor" errors in 29 warrant applications to the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, after the agency came under heavy criticism for its handling of politically sensitive cases and reviewed a sampling of its past efforts.

The agency's audit filed with the FISA court looked at almost 7,000 facts in a sample of 29 applications the FBI presented to the court in recent years, following a scathing independent report on errors and concerns in warrants in the Russia investigation.
