Harshing your mellow since 9/01

The noose tightens

Around Barry’s pencil-neck.

After being on defense — with his hands legally tied — for the first two years of his Presidency, President Trump is finally able to go on offense, as he can no longer be accused of “interfering with the Russia investigation.”

But something else is afoot as well. According to diGenova, and here is the tremendous breaking news: The FISA court has been looking into abuses of the FISA system and has communicated with the Justice Department about its findings. Their chief judge has already determined that for more than four years before the election of Donald Trump, there was an illegal spying operation (yes, spying — and, yes, illegal) going on by four FBI contractors to break the law to steal personal electronic information about American citizens and to use it against the Republican Party.

It might be good to go back and read that last sentence again, slowly, and let it sink in.

The people heading up the Justice Department at that time — including Attorney General (AG) Sally Yates and Assistant AG John Carlin — apparently knew about it and lied to the FISA court. It seems that by the time they withheld the political origins of Christopher Steele’s Trump “dossier” to the court, it was already business as usual to deceive those judges, who no doubt have steam coming out of their ears.

There will be grand juries and indictments, according to diGenova, who knows how this works because he happens to have been one of the original lawyers on the FISA court. He said, “John Brennan isn’t going to need one lawyer — he’s going to need five.”

Keep in mind, the misuse of the FISA court is central to this entire governmental abuse of power. It can be weaponized to go after political enemies, as happened with Trump, and it can also be used to gather information on you and me. This investigation could lead far beyond the uncovering of political hanky-panky, although that is tremendously important. It could lead to an entire refiguring of the FISA process, maybe even an end to the FISA court.

I know a lot of people are getting “scandal fatigue” and don’t want to keep hearing about investigations. But what happened here in the Obama Justice Department is likely the biggest abuse of power we’ve seen in our lifetimes. If allowed to continue, it could change the very concept of what it means to be an American.

If the highest levels of government can trample the constitutional process by which we elect a President, and step all over the President once that person is elected, imagine what it can do to you.

Check my previous post for a big ol’ honking hint about that.

  1. I wish it were true.

    For one, I don’t believe the FISA court judges are pissed about being “misled.” I would bet they are annoyed at the ruse being caught, and perhaps their own malfeasance being discovered.

  2. I’m enjoying watching the chess game unfold. I’m hoping and praying Trump is playing to win. If not, well, things will get ugly if this is just another con-job for us rubes.
