House Democrats stopped action in the House Judiciary Committee on a bill that would have made changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court because they do not want to acknowledge the findings in Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., claimed Thursday. 

"What they don't want to deal with is actual FISA process and the FISA court itself," Collins told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "They don't' want to acknowledge, as the president said, that this should never happen to another president or American citizen like (former campaign aide) Carter Page."

Republicans tagged the secret court for reforms after it was revealed the FBI had committed abuses during its investigation into President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, including to get surveillance warrants against Page. Three key provisions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act are to expire in less than two weeks. 

Collins said the court remains important, but there must be provisions included that allow for information protecting the country from foreign terrorists, but not for spying on Americans. 

"The Democrats blocked it because they have an internal battle with themselves because they don't want to acknowledge what happened," Collins said. "It ruins their whole narrative to discredit this president. They don't like President Trump and they don't want to acknowledge that there was an attempted coup.

"We could have been done with this national nightmare if there had not been this coup attempt by the FBI," Collins concluded.
