Devin Nunes May Summon Chief Justice To Testify On FISA Abuses
Daily Caller ^ | 2/8/2018 | Kevin Daley

Posted on 02/08/2018 6:04:06 PM PST by bitt

GOP Rep. Devin Nunes of Calif., chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, may invite Chief Justice John Roberts to testify before the panel on alleged FISA abuses.

Nunes told radio host and Republican wise man Hugh Hewitt Thursday that committee Republicans have entertained the idea, as Roberts appoints all FISA judges, but cautioned no decision has yet been made. Hewitt and Nunes discussed the idea in connection with the committee’s memo on the secret intelligence courts, which alleged the FBI sought authorization to surveil President Donald Trump’s campaign aides on the basis of political opposition research.

“Now the chief justice appoints the FISA judges,” Hewitt said. “Have you had a chance to chat with him or any of the FISA judges about what went on at the FISA court with regard to the [Carter] Page application?”

Nunes my invite the Chief Justice, but SCOTUS is a co-equal branch of government and is not obligated to recognize or submit to a congressional subpoena.

Roberts should be incensed that the FISA court was abused in this manner.

Will he hide in his chambers?

wow! I did not know that Roberts appointed FISC justices. This makes the whole decision on the Obamacare tax suspicious. Have suspected that “they” had the dirt on him back then.

Very bad idea. Roberts would decline to answer any substantive questions (as he should), and the whole thing would look like a publicity stunt.

Hardly.

That's how they got the ammo to blackmail him.

“Nunes my invite the Chief Justice, but SCOTUS is a co-equal branch of government and is not obligated to recognize or submit to a congressional subpoena.”

And for the very same reason President Trump can tell Mueller and his little gang of flying monkeys to kiss his ass since they are creatures of Congress. The same could be said for all of those insane Federal Judges trying to dictate the Executive Branch on immigration and defense because Federal Courts are also creations of Congress. The only thing that can truly touch a president is impeachment or the 25th amendment, that's it.

Nunes...doing the heavy lifting Sessions refuses to do.
God bless him and protect him.

Regarding Roberts, let him decline.
He will look like he is hiding something.

Now that you are emerging from the tall grass and weeds, ask about Mary McCord and her spouse.....

Are you being "snookered" at the Supreme Court.

They all knew.

They did NOTHING.

I’m sure all the rank-and-file members of the judiciary are just mad as heck at these abuses.

Why, they might even be madder than all the (silent) rank-and-file fbi agents, who are pretty doggone mad about it.

Then tell us all who has oversight over FISA courts.
If not Roberts, then who?
Who has oversight?

The question for Roberts is “ were you compromised and blackmailed to change your vote to legitimize the unconstitutional obama care” answer is YES!! THEY BUGGED ROBERTS LIFE!! He should be impeached for folding!!
