FISA court suspects Obama admin of 'pattern' of political dirt
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court "suspects" the FBI has a pattern of seeking out political information through surveillance orders, according to former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova.
"Do you know why the court did that? Because the court suspects that they're all political figures or people connected to political figures and that the FISAs were done for the purpose of targeting so that they could get political information, unmask the people, and then leak the information," DiGenova said.
DieGenova said the government apparently had been abusing the FISA system to monitor political targets almost since the start of the Obama administration....
The FICA court was and is the Obama machines way of suppressing and intimidating opponents. It is still happening. The Obama administration werenâ€™t able to end the election of DJT, but evidently his kitchen cabinet was prosecuted and jailed as a warning. Notice how quiet and dignified the Obamaâ€™s are. He might ride in a save Sleepy Joe and....curse you Wuhan SARS.
It is indisputable that the Obama Administration not only weaponized the Justice Dept with both Holder and Lynch using career bureaucrats to do its dirty work. They also weaponized the IRS against conservative organizations and political enemies. I was audited 3 times by them in less than a year and a half just because I donated to the Susan B. Anthony List. They used the State Dept with Hillary and Susan Rice to shake down countries sympathetic to conservative and religious values by blackmailing them by threatening to withhold aide if certain laws were abandoned for liberal causes like unfettered abortion and homosexual freedoms. And not only did the Obama Administration interfere with the 2016 elections here using Ukraine as proxy but they repeatedly interfered in Israel's elections with political propaganda and financial support for Netanyahu's rivals. What Obama tried to do with America is what antichrist will try to with the world.

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Mr. Horowitzâ€™s report on Wednesday, both Republicans and Democrats suggested that legislation tightening restrictions on FISA surveillance may be coming, and the A.C.L.U. submitted ideas to the committee.
Civil libertarians for years have called the surveillance court a rubber stamp because it only rarely rejects wiretap applications. Out of 1,080 requests by the government in 2018, for example, government records showed that the court fully denied only one. .... But the inspector general found major errors, material omissions and unsupported statements about Mr. Page in the materials that went to the court. F.B.I. agents cherry-picked the evidence, telling the Justice Department information that made Mr. Page look suspicious and omitting material that cut the other way, and the department passed that misleading portrait onto the court.
To give just three examples:...
