    Lack of Candor’ Cited Before in Surveillance Requests by Obama Administration

    More proof of deception and corruption in the Obama administration

    Nunes Memo Not First to Question FISA ?Candor? by Obama Administration


    A judge who is part of a secret court system criticized the Obama administration for “an institutional lack of candor” in seeking warrants to spy on U.S. citizens.

    This scrutiny came in the form of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court report, issued last spring in an investigation that began well before most of the public ever heard of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, former British spy Christopher Steele, or Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.

    The scrutiny also came long before the so-called Nunes memo raised questions about the Obama administration’s surveillance requests in late 2016 related to the incoming president, Donald Trump, and Russia.

    The Trump administration recently agreed to declassify the memo from Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., chairman of the House intelligence committee. In it, Nunes essentially accused the FBI of not informing a special court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act about the political origins of information used to justify surveillance of a Trump campaign volunteer.

    Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. But this can't be done alone. Find out more >>

    A judge last year made a similar criticism of a different case involving the National Security Agency.

    “The common denominator is the agencies were not fully transparent to the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]. The comparison ends at that point,” David Shedd, a former acting director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told The Daily Signal.

    “The only thing that would describe a pattern is the absence of candor with the court,” Shedd said.

    If the congressional Republicans have a case against the FISA courts or the DOJ, then they shouldn't be afraid to take it to court.

    If they don't have a case, then they should simply shut the fuck up and stop prodding their wild-eyed, lunatic base into becoming so fucking hysterical.

    So are you saying the FISA judge is a liar?

    Please post on the actual topic.

    It is interesting as the approval rate by FISA Courts is in the 90%+ range. I can't imagine an administration as opaque as the Obama Administration would have such an issue.
