The release of the Mueller Report earlier in the month was sort of like the release of a rock album that your favorite band has been promising for years that they are working on and are going to complete soon. You think that it is never going to really happen.
Democrats were sitting with waited breath hoping that the report would have something on President Trump that they thought was going to give cause for him to be eventually removed from his position.
Problem is, not only did they have nothing in the report but there was also a litany of things on the Democratic side that those who oppose the policies of the President certainly did not want getting out..
The political surveillance program run by the Obama administration was working for a long time. Thanks to the Mueller report, Americans can see the massive abuse carried out by the former administration, its illegal activities, and the heinous crimes committed.
Likewise, it clearly portrays why the Mueller investigation began… not to find evidence of any wrongdoing on Trump’s part, but to cover up the evidence of their own illegal actions.
Conservative Treehouse reporter Sundance, has in his usual fashion, outlined the abuse using evidence that has been exposed over the past two years, and John Ratcliffe delivered a stunner saying that Strzok, Yates and Comey lied to the FISA court about Carter Page.
In his words: Now that we have significant research files on the 2015 and 2016 political surveillance program; which includes the trail evident within the Weissmann/Mueller report; in combination with the Obama-era DOJ “secret research project” (their words, not mine); we are able to overlay the entire objective and gain a full understanding of how political surveillance was conducted over a period of approximately four to six years.
The FISA-702 database extraction process, and utilization of the protections within the smaller intelligence community, was the primary process. We start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26th, 2017; and explain the details within the FISC opinion.
I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court.
In essence, they were continually lying to the court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.
Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes outlined.
