Elder Patriot – In the wake of the explosive revelations that the primary basis the FISA court judges relied on to authorize multiple surveillance warrants was a “salacious and unverified” opposition-funded dossier, officials at the highest levels of the Obama administration are continuing to be implicated in what must considered fraud against the court.
Even while the mainstream media refuses to report on the most important story of our lifetimes they will not be able to obscure for much longer that Barack Hussein Obama – for all his charm – was a Manchurian president.
From ABC News:
“More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved.
“From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.”
“According to George Washington Law School professor and longtime FISA critic Jonathan Turley, “FISA was designed more to facilitate than to limit surveillance. It adopted a standard that was heavily weighted toward approval. You almost have to work to find a way to get turned down by a FISA court.”
“In 2013, when NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked a secret court order that showed the court had approved an application to collect metadata from the phones of millions of Americans each day, a scandal erupted.”
This standard puts a heavy burden on the U.S. Attorney General – the nation’s highest law enforcement official – to only bring applications to the court that they deem are based on solid evidence and with just cause.
The court only rejected one application out of the first 10,700 that had been brought before it. The first FISC application that Lynch brought to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign team was the second to be denied.
It is virtually unfathomable that Attorney General Lynch would’ve decided on her own to return to court with the same phony dossier – one of only two ever to have been rejected according to ABC News – as the centerpiece of her evidence unless President Obama demanded that she do so.
That raises the question, why was Obama so confident that the judge would rule differently. And why, with each successive application didn’t the judge ask for some additional evidence as proof that the preceding warrant had merit?
This may be scary to contemplate but we must consider how severely compromised the courts – especially the FISC – became under Obama. Such a possibility gains credence in light of the questionable decisions by federal circuit court judges to stymie the Constitutional authority of President Trump’s Executive Orders on immigration.
The question that must now be answered is what did the president [Obama] know and when did he know it?
The potential for long-term corruption of our court system by Obama appointees has become a very real concern.
