GOP & Dems Fully Supported Spying on Trump

The Bi-Partisan Police State

  • In violation of the 4th Amendment for decades both the "Conservative" GOP and the "liberal" Democrats have worked hand-in-hand to protect, massively expand and fully fund the 1984 Police Surveillance State.
  • When Trump's Nationalist movement won the White House the first thing the "Conservative" GOP controlled Congress did was to order the endless 24-7 Russia "investigations" to oust Trump and install a meek and compliant Pence. 
  • Even now with the corrupt Deep State spying on Trump fully exposed there is not one word spoken to abolish the unconstitutional FISA court or clean out the scum in the NSA or FBI. It is business as usual.

(Washington Examiner)  -  Special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the lack of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia has revealed an urgent need to rein in the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court.
The FISA court typically operates in the shadows, though it occasionally surfaces in the news when it becomes entangled in political issues, such as the debate over government surveillance in the wake of Sept. 11, or when it authorizes spying on a presidential campaign organization, as it did with regard to the Trump campaign.
The FISA court issues secret warrants permitting the government to spy on individuals suspected of working with a foreign government against the interests of the United States, and operates out of a secure, bunker-like complex where government officials decide whether to spy on phone calls, emails, and text messages. There’s no jury, there are no attorneys, and there’s no defense or opposing view.
The information gathered from such surveillance, however, isn't just collected from the primary target — it also includes anyone in communication with that individual. According to a 2014 Washington Post report, 90 percent of people whose communications were collected under warrants granted by the FISA court were not the intended targets. Nearly half of the surveillance files contained names, email addresses, or other details the NSA marked as belonging to U.S. citizens or residents.
Between 1979 and 2012, the first 33 years of the FISA court’s existence, federal agencies submitted 33,900 applications. FISA court judges denied only 11 while rubber-stamping the rest — a 99.97 percent rate of approval.
