Abuse of Power Worse than Thought: FBI Used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Without Following the Law

Craig Huey Deep State, Government, Congress, and Politics, National Security Leave a Comment

For over 10 years we’ve fought for abolishing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act … and the secret FISA court.


Because the FBI has been unable to resist the temptation to abuse it.

As you know, in 2017 and 2018 the biased and politicized FBI leadership used the power of surveillance to investigate the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

They lied to the FISA court both by commission and omission so as to obtain repeated 90-day warrants to spy on Trump and his presidential campaign advisors.

We’ve written about the abuse of FISA and the FISA court in past Huey Report articles – most recently here  and here.

The illegal and unconstitutional investigation found nothing against Trump…

Inspector General Michael Horowitz reviewed the FISA warrant applications and found numerous violations of protocols and procedures.

The FBI response to the Inspector General’s report has been appalling…

It’s amounted to a Deep State cover-up…

Although current FBI Director Christopher Wray has ordered more than 40 corrective steps, they’ve been mostly cosmetic and haven’t addressed the systemic political bias that has infected the FBI leadership for years.

No accountability has been required for the past grievous mistakes…

No justice has been demanded.

No punishment has been meted out.

No deterrents to prevent future political bias have been established.

The Inspector General reviewed 29 random FISA warrants – not just the ones on Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page – and found major mistakes on all of them.

The FBI won’t fix itself.

The FISA warrant application process won’t correct itself.

The FBI will continue to spy on loyal law-abiding American citizens … and will continue to violate our constitutional rights to privacy and to protection from unlawful searches and seizures of our private personal information and property.

It’s time to abolish the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and start over fresh.

Please sign our petition to President Trump and to Congress to end the information gathering … the eavesdropping on phone conversations … the invasion of privacy … and the illegal spying on law-abiding American citizens. Click here.
