WASHINGTON, DC: The Obama White House used the most sensitive intrusive surveillance systems of the NSA to spy on Americans. A ruling by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer finds that 85% of NSA database requests under FISA section 702 authority at the DOJ were illegal or noncompliant. Surveillance systems, including PRISM, spying on hundreds if not thousands of Americans. Including Donald Trump and those around him. (United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review Amicus Brief)
Moreover, Collyer finds, that the Department of Justice showed an appalling “lack of institutional candor”.
FISA Judge Collyer rules illegal spying occurred
In April 2017 Judge Collyer found that unwarranted and illegal surveillance of American citizens was done by the highest reaches of the Obama Administration for at least 4 years, starting in 2012. (Secret court rebukes NSA for 5-year illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens – MAY 26, 2017 ). Moreover, James Comey did authorize and allow for limitless, continuous, unlawful, and warrantless access by three Federal contractors. (Institutional Lack of Candor – FISA Violations January 24, 2018).
That those contractors had accessed over 40000 searches of the NSA programs and databases, including PRISM, during that 48-month period of time.
Out of approximately 5000 searches of the NSA database from October 2016 to April of 2017 in the National Security Division of the DOJ, 4250 of them were deemed illegal or non-compliant by the Presiding Judge of the FISA court.
That its targets were American citizens. Prominent Republicans. That the abuse was continuous, frequently entering the same person’s name over a protracted period of time.
Collyer ruled that this information was shared and disseminated unlawfully to John Brennan and James Clapper. Furthermore, information was disseminated within the Obama administration in violation of the 4th amendment.
How is it that Obama and Brennan could get away with being so diabolically sociopathic. Surely they knew what they were doing was illegal. All under the authorization of James Comey. He knew it was illegal.
It seems it was pure arrogance and hubris. They were sure they would not get caught. They were sure that Hillary Clinton’s election was inevitable and would cover up their crimes.
I’m sure they all thought they would get a promotion for their efforts.
And when they did get caught, they fought back with treason. By continuing to usurp the constitution. Undermining the incoming President with the Russia hoax. Trying to cover up their litany of crimes. And staging an attempted coup against Donald Trump.
