Trump’s chances of being turned down for a FISA wire tap 0.02 percent

Earlier this year Trump was tweeting that Trump Tower was wiretapped. Everyone in the media mocked him, making him sound like a nut case. On March 6, I posted this. A second time around for this post seems worthwhile with the latest news about Manafort. Keep in mind, the first FISA request was turned down, but Lynch was game to try it again. First an update with Tucker Carlson last night.

We learn that AG Lynch signed off on every single one of the FISA requests during her tenure. Better yet, we learn that it is simply a rubber stamp for the nefarious activities of our government. 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. And her first request to the FISA court was turned down. Apparently she found a Obama Judge. 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 Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

According to ABC, all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch.  This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race.

This is disheartening knowing that she released a video over the weekend calling for the need for more marching, blood and death on the streets.  This also means that she chose not to investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal activities but rather signed an application to wire tap President Trump.

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.

Comey and McCabe back in March, blocked the arrest of Awan’s wife as she was fleeing UPDATE!

Desperate Debbie

Wasserman Schultz Says Laptop She Sought To Keep From Police Was Awan’s, Not Hers

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz never actually saw the computer she fought to block the Capitol Police from examining as evidence in a criminal case against her IT aide by saying it was hers, she told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

See earlier post:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz threaten’s Police Chief over hacking scandal, wants evidence returned to her

Back to the original post:

What is amazing is that the FBI did stop Imran Awan at least at the airport. Someone apparently didn’t get Comey’s message to let the Awan clan get out-of-town. The rest of the family was permitted to leave by apparently no less than okayed by Comey. Just more proof that the swamp includes the FBI and Comey in particular:

Debbie threatening Capitol Police

Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.

But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said.

So federal agents and Capitol Police watched as the former Democratic congressional aide and suspected bank fraudster stepped onto Qatar Air1ines Flight 708 to Doha, Qatar, on her way to Lahore, Pakistan with her three daughters, bulging luggage and $12,400 in undocumented cash — a federal crime in itself. Awan had essentially been given a license to disappear from the clutches of US law enforcement, never likely to return to the United States. She was in the wind, courtesy of the FBI.

 “This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”

Comey has since been fired and McCabe was Acting FBI Director until the new FBI director was recently sworn in.

As a sidebar, Alvi Awan would also have served as a key witness in the emerging case building against Wasserman Schultz, the DNC, and what role Hillary Clinton played into the emerging labyrinth of Awan-related security breaches.

Trump digging up dirt on Mueller’s 15 Attorneys, new offensive

Finally it looks like Trump is getting the dogs out and going after Mueller. Where is Sessions and his going after Comey and Hillary? Gateway Pundit has a look at the 15 Attorneys that Mueller has put together at the Gateway link below:

As TGP previously reported, The Washington Post claimed that President Trump’s legal team are exploring ways to “scale back” Mueller’s investigation. This is great news, considering many believe Mueller is not an independent arbiter of the investigation and is abusing his power by investigating trivial business transactions.

Not only is Trump asking his advisers about his power to pardon family members and even himself in connection with the probe, The New York Times is reporting that President Trump is also going on the offensive. FINALLY!

Trump’s aides are seeking leverage as they investigate Mueller’s investigators.

Per The New York Times:

 President Trump’s lawyers and aides are scouring the professional and political backgrounds of investigators hired by the special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, looking for conflicts of interest they could use to discredit the investigation — or even build a case to fire Mr. Mueller or get some members of his team recused, according to three people with knowledge of the research effort.

The search for potential conflicts is wide-ranging. It includes scrutinizing donations to Democratic candidates, investigators’ past clients and Mr. Mueller’s relationship with James B. Comey, whose firing as F.B.I. director is part of the special counsel’s investigation.

Back to business!

I have concluded two part conspiracy posts regarding “Deep State” operative Reality Leigh Winner? and Reality Leigh Winner, a useless idiot or did the ‘Deep State’ use her

My intention today was to draw conclusions regarding facts that simply make no sense. I do believe Reality Leigh Winner who leaked Top Secret Documents was a willing patsy. Who it was that orchestrated the event in particular I know not. I do believe there were more involved. I believe she was probably groomed for what happened. No less than ISIS grooms its potential converts. While in the Air Force her office was in the NSA building. I give you this fact to think about:

It’s the private sector with its 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances, “a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government.”

I will let you wander over to Antiwar.com  and let Peter Van Buren do the theory thing about who benefits from Ms Winner’s illegal activity titled “Hey Intercept, Something Is Very Wrong With Reality Winner and the NSA Leak.” I agree with him.

I conclude with a segment from an earlier post: Are we about to inherit a Totalitarian State? The Silent Coup  

“The Deep State, which “operates according to its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power,” makes a mockery of elections and the entire concept of a representative government.”

Zero Hedge ties up the loose knots and gives us a string of tin foil that is worth consideration.

So who or what is the Deep State?

…. It’s the fusion centers and spy agencies that have created a surveillance state and turned all of us into suspects. It’s the courthouses and prisons that have allowed corporate profits to take precedence over due process and justice. It’s the military empire with its private contractors and defense industry that is bankrupting the nation. It’s the private sector with its 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances, “a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government.” It’s what former congressional staffer Mike Lofgren refers to as “a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies”: the Department of Defense, the State Department, Homeland Security, the CIA, the Justice Department, the Treasury, the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a handful of vital federal trial courts, and members of the defense and intelligence committees.

It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tacticsMore at Zero Hedge

Senator Inouye,in 1987, summarizes here the coverup of the US Shadowy Government involvement; by saying:

“There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”

Comey had ‘false and dangerous view’ of FBI role

 

Whatever parts of Comey’s testimony you believe were the high points, what did become crystal clear was his dangerous view of the Department as this totally independent agency accountable to no one. We found what could happen with this view in one J. Edgar Hoover. I caught the WSJ piece before it went behind the pay wall and was a well written piece. The testimony bore out yesterday the concerns expressed. The Examiner picks up the thread here:

The right-leaning Wall Street Journal editorial board hit former FBI Director James Comey for having a “false and dangerous view” of how the agency is expected to function in a democracy.

In an editorial published Wednesday night, just hours ahead of Comey’s highly anticipated testimony before Congress, the Journal said that his testimony, released earlier in the day, suggests he believes the FBI should act as an unchecked authority in law enforcement, and that Comey didn’t seem interested in discussing any of the issues before him with any elected or appointed officials.

“The most troubling part of Mr. Comey’s statement is his belief in what he calls ‘the FBI’s traditionally independent status in the executive branch,’ which he invokes more than once,” the paper said. “Independent? This is a false and dangerous view of law enforcement in the American system. Mr. Comey is describing a FBI director who essentially answers to no one. But the police powers of the government are awesome and often abused, and the only way to prevent or correct abuses is to report to elected officials who are accountable to voters.” More at Washington Examiner

Interview with Robert F. Kennedy during which he describes FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover as “dangerous” and “rather a psycho”

Twenty Million Americans spied on, unmasked, and Comey’s coverup?

It is claimed that Millions of Americans were spied on and were unmasked and better yet? Comey is up to his eyeballs in it. The story first came to light back in March. Story Here. The story never got legs. On Monday, a lawsuit was filed. The documents are worth a look.

I understand why Trump is fed up with Sessions. Sessions essentially walked away from his position as head of the DOJ when he recused himself over Russia Russia Russia… did you see either of Obama’s DOJ’s Directors recuse themselves?  Buckle your seatbelt:

A former U.S. intelligence contractor tells Circa he walked away with more than 600 million classified documents on 47 hard drives from the National Security Agency and the CIA, a haul potentially larger than Edward Snowden’s now infamous breach.

And now he is suing former FBI Director James Comey and other government figures, alleging the bureau has covered up evidence he provided them showing widespread spying on Americans that violated civil liberties.

Montgomery alleges that more than 20 million American identities were illegally unmasked – credit reports, emails, phone conversations and Internet traffic, were some of the items the NSA and CIA collected.

“They’re doing this domestic surveillance on Americans, running a project on U.S. soil,” Montgomery alleged. He did not disclose the classified name of the project but said he revealed all aspects of the project during his interview with the FBI. 

“Can you imagine what someone can do with the information they were collecting on Americans, can you imagine that kind of power.”

Montgomery divulged to the FBI a ”pattern and practice of conducting illegal, unconstitutional surveillance against millions of Americans, including prominent Americans such as the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen, and others such as Donald J. Trump, as well as Plaintiffs themselves,” Montgomery and Klayman alleged in their suit.

“Plaintiffs were assured that the FBI, under Defendant Comey, would conduct a full investigation into the grave instances of illegal and unconstitutional activity set forth by Montgomery. However, the FBI, on Defendant Comey’s orders, buried the FBI’s investigation because the FBI itself is involved in an ongoing conspiracy to not only conduct the aforementioned illegal, unconstitutional surveillance, but to cover it up as well,” the suit added.

He said he returned the hard drives to the FBI, a fact confirmed in government documents reviewed by Circa.

Montgomery says the evidence he gave to the FBI chronicle the warrantless collection of phone, financial and personal data and the unmasking of identities in spy data about millions of Americans,.

“This domestic surveillance was all being done on computers supplied by the FBI,” Montgomery told Circa in an interview. “So these supercomputers, which are FBI computers, the CIA is using them to do domestic surveillance.”

FBI Special Counsel Mueller: ‘I Have to Check to See If Obama Has the Right to Kill Americans On U S Soil’

While we once again will hear how another “White Knight” comes before us in the form of Mueller to dig about the swamp, looking for some heads to claim, I suggest he is anything but that very special person. You can read elsewhere how he and Comey saved our Constitution at a hospital bedside. This is the real Mueller, another political hack. You see, Obama had a kill list. He had a peculiar taste for it.

It’s been well reported that Obama and his top minions have a so-called “kill list” of which he takes a particular interest. The question is where does it start and where does it stop? The issue of his killing Americans abroad brought a fire storm, and does he have the authority to kill Americans. Here. On U.S. soil?

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” Holder said.

But Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, wrote in Foreign Policy magazine on Wednesday that Holder’s remarks not only would be seen by the framers of the Constitution as “the very definition of authoritarian power,” but were met “not with outcry but muted applause.”

“Holder’s new definition of ‘due process’ was perfectly Orwellian,” Turley wrote. “What Holder is describing is a model of an imperial presidency that would have made Richard Nixon blush. …

“Where due process once resided, Holder offered only an assurance that the president would kill citizens with care. While that certainly relieved any concern that Obama would hunt citizens for sport, Holder offered no assurances on how this power would be used in the future beyond the now all-too-familiar ‘trust us’ approach to civil liberties of this administration,” he wrote.
