Obama's Attorney Loretta Lynch Signed Every Phony 2016 FISA Request To Spy on Trump

Following the FISA memo revelations on Friday and previous experiences, we now know for sure that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) acted like a rubber-stamp for the Obama-era FBI and DOJ to spy on then-candidate Trump. The thing is, in the last six years, only two in more than ten thousand (that’s like 99,98% approval rate, North-Korea style) FISA requests were denied. And check this out: among that ridiculous percent of denied requests you’ll find FBI’s first request to wiretap Donald Trump when he was a presidential candidate back in 2015. Yes, the FBI presented themselves in front of the judge with such an inept motive, that even the kangaroo FISA court denied them the surveillance mandate initially. Later on, the FBI added into the mix the fake Steele dossier, knowing it was a lie, yet they did it anyway.

According to 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 Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

We also learned that the FISA requests by the FBI to proceed with surveillance on Carter Page were based on the fake and discredited Pissgate-Steele-Trump dossier, which was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, and the FBI and the DOJ knew it all, they’ve just omitted to tell the FISA judge about that (that’s like 10 years in jail). All of those requests were signed off by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, including the first request to spy on Donald Trump, the one that was rejected. Here’s Trump back in March:

I am sure ole Loretta never said a word to Bill during their meeting on the tarmac about any of this, nor to Barry. She’s too ethical for that . With 10 Of 11 FISA Judges being Obama appointees (as Federal judges), we can be assured this egregious crime is opening a whole can of worms and lawsuits.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg (Obama appointee), who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates. Boasberg refused to release the documents on the basis they were still being used by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of the alleged Russian collusion with Trump associates.

Let that sink in.

Chief Justice Roberts better get control over the judicial aspects of this FISA scandal, or the public is going to turn on the Supreme Court for complicity in an attempted coup. And, it has responsibility to hold all of the lawyers to account for their conduct before the Court. Pelosi may be right that we have a constitutional crisis brewing, but not for the reasons she claims.
