Are the FISA Court members dirty?


What is with the members of the FISA court who keep finding their way in handling the very issues that are coming before it regarding #MEMOGATE ?  The Judge that was to sentence Flynn was forced to recuse himself for reasons yet to be determined just as he was ready to bang the gavel down on Flynn. Now buried in this little gem? Oh, yes..we learn the FISA Judge ruled on the Comey matter. Add to this fact that every single Judge on the FISA court was appointed by Obama. These two FISA judges were from the D.C. Court. The list at the end of the post.

Most important is the fact that the FISA court only turns down .02 percent of requests. All day long yesterday we hear that the FISA court demands a “rigorous through review” before granting a request. Total nonsense. One has a better chance of being struck by lightning.

Daily Caller:

On the same day the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the Nunes memo showing the FBI relied on the salacious and unverified Trump dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a federal judge ruled to withhold the Comey memos. The memos, authored by former FBI Director James Comey, are about his nine private conversations with President-elect and President Trump.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg, who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates.

Boasberg refused to release the documents on the basis they were still being used by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of the alleged Russian collusion with Trump associates.

The judge ruled, “the Comey Memos, at least for now, will remain in the hands of the Special Counsel and not the public.”

Keep reading…

Then we just learn that the Judge who was to sentence Flynn is on the FISA court as well.

Did FBI Peter Strzok setup FLynn? Judge now recused, Sentencing postponed UPDATE!

“Due to the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” the special counsel asked the court.

The court filing states a date to sentence Flynn could not be determined by the special counsel at this time and that 90-day extension is be required.

The fact that one has about as much chance of being struck by lightning than being turned down as a candidate for investigation tells us what rare company Trump is in. Even so the first request to the FISA court was turned down. Here we go:

Only two in over 10,000 applications were turned down by the FISA Court.

According to ABC News:

More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

Finally, another very disturbing fact about the wire tapping request of President Trump is that the FISA Court turned down President Obama’s Administration’s first request to wire tap President Trump that was evidently signed off on by Attorney General Lynch.  With only two applications denied out of 10,700 from 2009 through 2015, the fact that the Obama Administration’s application was denied by the FISA Court the first time is very disturbing.  The odds of this happening are 0.02%.

Every single judge on the FISA Court as of today was appointed during Obama’s Presidency!

Five of the current eleven judges on the court are scheduled to be on the court for President Trump’s entire first term with six of the judges’ terms expiring before January 2021.  Seven of the judges are scheduled into the year 2020.

    while thumbing thru the blogisphere today I found the most ugly, dispicable blog that I have ever seen befor. It is called Progressive Eruptions, written by the most disgusting women I have ever read in my 65 years on this earth.

    Rudolph Contreras, who was recused from Flynn sentencing (and we don’t know why or by who) may have been the FISA judge in the memo case.
    But interestingly, given that many say that the FISA court is a pushover, the warrant on Page wasn’t granted at first until the Steel dossier was offered as evidence.

    Judges serve for life … unless, or until we had an attorney general … then there could be impeachment.

    The people we depend on to uphold and enforce the law

    Are the very same ones who are breaking it

    Lawyers and in this case the FBI hold too much belief that whatever they say must be the truth

    Its become a very common practice that lawyers lie to a judge to get a win for their client

    There are Government Agencies for the Consumer where you can file a complaint

    So one does…

    What happens to the lying lawyer you may wonder?

    Absolutely nothing

    It all gets swept under the rug

    Until heads begin to roll

    For their abuse of power

    For their concealing of evidence

    For their deception to a Judge

    It will continue…and how sad

    As President Trump said yesterday…its a disgrace

    Justice cannot tolerate dishonesty on the part of the lawyer or like in this case the FBI

    …and PS

    Recently in the past month or so and I can’t remember the particulars on the high profile case

    But several lawyers were found to have lied and nothing happened to them as far as I know

    They should have gotten disbarred

      Nothing happens. Same with doctors for the most part. Once our courts go bad we are indeed lost. Sessions says there are problems in every agency? Can’t be in the judiciary.

    If I were Flynn, I would be changing my plea…the MSM are having a field day, calling it a nothingburger, of course they would, they are up to their eyeballs in this mess. It should be interesting to see what else Nunes has to offer up, he said yesterday he wasn’t done and there will be more coming out. We are in a sad shape as a country, thanks Obama and you liberal crybabies.

    Would it be fair then to assume these FISA judges, not unlike the vast majority of federal employees, answer to no one? (other than Hussein Osama bin Obama).
