GOP memo points to FBI using exact 'enemies list'-style surveillance FISA was supposed to prevent
Fox News ^ | Feb 5 2018 | Allen C. Guelzo

The memo released Friday by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is remarkably short and uncluttered, and more people should be reading it than talking about it. Since that doesn't often happen in Washington, here are the basics:

In October, 2016, Carter Page, who was briefly a Trump campaign operative, was placed under electronic surveillance by the FBI as the result of a warrant issued by the special court created by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The Nunes memo does not quote the warrant, but it does indicate that the surveillance hoped “to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.” Collusion, in other words.

The pages of Free Republic years ago warned that an administration so willing to get down in the weeds as to sic the IRS and several other agencies on relatively inconsequential conservative groups (like True the Vote), was more than capable of far more ambitious crimes against the law and Constitution.

I fault congress for granting eight years of pigmentation immunity. It will probably continue.

Why is nobody outing the “job” the judge did not do? They are supposed to be so strict. Bet it was an Obama appointed FISA judge that was in on it. I know the judges are kept secret, but this one needs some scrutiny! A little daylight here is necessary.

Jarrett's signature, trademark and MO is revenge, retaliation and assassination. Her fingerprints are literally on everything. Holder just devised the sources and methods for her.

I have heard Hannity say many times that if he found out he was illegally spied on or unmasked illegally that his team of lawyers would file multiple lawsuits and even criminal charges. http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3629317/posts “Title I” FISA surveillance of U.S. citizens is the most intrusive, exhaustive and far reaching type of search, seizure and surveillance authority, permitting the FBI to look at every scintilla of Mr. Page’s life. All communication, travel and contact can be opened and reviewed. All aspects of any of Mr. Page’s engagements are subject to being secretly monitored. Well guess what Hannity, YOU and lots of others including Rush and Judge Janine were ALL UNDER ILLEGAL SURVEILLANCE and you can bet Your Last Nickel you were ALL Illegally unmasked. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/242 Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Page left the Trump campaign in September 2016, a month before the FISA warrant was approved.

The second tier of players and enablers are in the judiciary. Are the spouses K-Street lobbyists or moonlighting as creative writers for the likes of Fusion GPS?

These are high-powered professionals, not the Ward & June Cleaver family.

   R. Contreras - spouse & professional endeavor/area of interest
T. Chuang - spouse & professional endeavor/area of interest
How many folks knew that Rosenstein's spouse is a lawyer specializing in frustrating FOIA requests?

Anybody who dared utter a discouraging word about the thin-skinned narcisstic Obama was fair game.

His "enemies list" must be encyclopedic.

There is a very strong possibility that U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras was forcibly recused by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, because Contreras is also the FISA Court Judge who signed-off on the 2016 FISA application (warrant) that led to the wiretapping and surveillance of General Flynn. That FISA application is now being questioned.—conservativetreehouse

Exactly.... My point is the area of interest may be broader than a casual inspection might reveal.

This rotten situation is not the Ward Cleaver going over the edge, so taking a look at June Cleaver, Wally, and Theodore —the Beaver, may be appropriate.

Another example.... the spouse of Michael Isikoff. She’s the scandal reporterette at Jeff Bezos’ Blog with the byline “Sleuth.” The DC LARP and Pokeman Go rolled into one.

It's MUCH worse than you suppose.

IF you notice in the upper RIGHT HAND corner, Judge Rudy Contreras is named as the FISA judge.

Rudy is a 2012 Obama appointee but it get's interesting when the chart also names Rudy as the judge that handled Gen. Flynn.

Rudy KNEW that the FISA process had been used illegally to spy on Americans because he is the one who approved the application by the criminal DNC cabal of Comey etc.

You can read about Rudy here:

RUDY CONTRERAS HISTORY

Complaints about Rudy can be made here:

Complaints of Judicial Misconduct

Rudy broke the law because:

1. He approved a FISA application that was obviously going to be used to monitor Americans, NOT foreign subjects

2. Rudy handled the Gen. Flynn "matter." Rudy obviously was conflicted.

I am using this chart as the source of the allegation that Rudy is a scumbag Demonrat Plant. When I find something that is independent of this chart, it will be time to file multiple complaints against Rudy.

Draining the Swamp one scumbag at a time.

...it’s just going to be used against US.
