IDENTIFIED: Error Prone FBI Agent From FISA Abuse Report
 
The FBI Agent from the FISA abuse report who was known for a multitude of errors has been identified.

According to The Daily Caller:

An FBI agent faulted for some of the most significant problems laid out in the Justice Department’s inspector general report on FISA abuse against a Trump campaign associate has been identified.

The New York Times, citing people familiar with the FBI’s Russia probe, identified Stephen A. Somma, a counterintelligence investigator who works out of the bureau’s New York field office, as “Case Agent 1” from the inspector general’s (IG) report.

...

“Case Agent 1” is singled in the report as being “primarily responsible for some of the most significant errors and omissions in the FISA applications.”

Somma was involved in multiple aspects of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign. 

The faulty information was used to obtain four warrants against Carter Page, who was an aide for the Trump campaign.
