Surprise: The FBI is Still Abusing the FISA Court System to Spy on Americans

A newly declassified report shows that the FBI was still abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to illegally spy on Americans in 2019. They were spying on “political officeholders” and “political donors,” fishing for evidence that could be used to charge them with crimes. The FISA court, we all remember, is the secret court that has no congressional oversight and is used to spy on Americans who have contact with foreigners who may be bad actors. Carter Page, a Trump campaign volunteer, was illegally spied on for more than a year without any justification, because the FBI lied to the FISA court. And the FBI is still lying to the court.

The declassified document is a joint intelligence report issued to Congress by Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines. If Avril Haines’ name sounds familiar, that’s because she used to be Barack Obama’s Deputy Director of the CIA. Just in case it was unclear who is actually running the White House while the drooling meat puppet Joe Biden is occasionally juiced full of barbiturates and then trotted out in front of the cameras.

The report was Top Secret until this July, when it was declassified. Although it has quite a few redactions in it, the report is fairly illuminating. The report is a whitewashed look at whether the FBI and other intelligence agencies are using the FISA court properly, or if they’re still abusing it like they did during the Russia hoax against President Trump.

Spoiler alert: They’re still abusing the FISA court.

 

The report is filled with references to “compliance issues.” That’s a cute way of saying “violations of section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.” It means that FBI agents were continuously, without evidence in these “compliance issues,” getting warrants to spy on all the phone calls, emails, text messages and other communications of Americans who were not suspected of crimes.

The report covers the months of June 2019 through November 2019. Hey! I can think of one public officeholder who was talking to a suspicious, possibly criminal foreigner during that time period!

Donald Trump had that phone call with the criminal Ukrainian Nazi warlord Volodymyr Zelensky in July of 2019. Never mind the fact that Zelensky is somehow everyone’s hero now. Back then, he was a bad guy because Trump had that impeachable phone call with him. The Russia collusion hoax had just blown up in the FBI’s faces by that point, so Congress needed to impeach Trump for something – anything! So, his phone call was spied on by the Whistleblower Who Must Never Be Named, and voila! Impeachment hoax 1.0.

But Trump wasn’t the only person who was illegally surveilled by the FBI (and is probably still being surveilled by the FBI). The report has one particularly disturbing sentence in it:

“FBI personnel conducted queries using United States persons identifiers to look for evidence of public corruption without having a reasonable basis to believe the queries would be likely to return evidence of a crime.”

That means that the FBI was getting FISA warrants to spy on other officeholders in addition to Trump, with NO EVIDENCE for doing so. They didn’t have probable cause to spy on these “officeholders” and they knew it. They lied to the FISA court.

Who might those officeholders have been? The whitewashed report doesn’t say, but we can make some educated guesses. How about every Trump Cabinet member? They were officeholders. People like Peter Navarro, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and others were “officeholders,” even though they were not elected officials.

Another good possibility is former Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA). He was the ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee in 2019. But for the two years prior to that, when he was Chairman of the committee, he was blowing open the Russia collusion hoax. There were plenty of other Trump allies in Congress who were probably illegally spied upon as well, during the FBI’s little fishing expedition: Matt Gaetz, Rand Paul, Jim Jordan.

It’s pretty amazing that this report has been declassified. Even though it is insanely watered down, it openly admits that the corrupt FBI continued spying on “officeholders” – no doubt 100% of them were Republicans – and did so without any probable cause. When Republicans retake the House and hopefully the Senate in the November midterms, this report needs to be added to the top of the stack of stuff they’ll be investigating.

  1. There will not be a November Election. The Progressive marxist socialist communist Demoncrat Party realizes that they are in a position to destroy the US as a Constitutional Republic, and replace it as described. With Demoncrat Mayors of the large US cities, they looked the other way as BLM created riots downtown, burned buildings, ramsacked stores, and police were helpless to stop it as those large cities defunded police. Starting soon, the Demoncrats will start more serious crimes in the big cities to justify Biden to declare martial law, cancelling the elections.
    That is why Biden is spending Millions on guns and ammo for Federal Agencies and hiring 82,000 IRS Agents.
    Wake up America!

  2. Reading what’s available about George Soros makes it hard to believe in any future for this country if we can’t do anything about his influence.
