Most warrant requests are filed by the NSA and the DOJ. After the passage of the Patriot Act, the court allowed the intelligence agency and FBI greater leeway to spy on Americans in the hope of catching domestic terrorists.

Bates told Congress the participation of an advocate would neither create a truly adversarial process nor constructively assist the courts in assessing the facts.

Unfortunately, fatally true. The ‘fatal’ aspect meaning fatal to freedom for citizens.
The communist party at work to deceive the low info citizen while warring against conservative Americans to bring them into enslavement as servents and slaves of the most godless and hate filled left is my guess. The injustice dept. will gladly rubber stamp his evil.
