It has been confirmed, our darkest fears have been realized in a new ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court in June. The case that the Obama government constructed to justify spying on the Democrat’s greatest threat and political nemesis: Donald J. Trump and his campaign in the person of Carter Page, was built on lies. The FBI lied on every single one. It is a nightmare scenario to consider. The FISA court, arguably the most secretive, therefore most powerful court in the country which up to know seemed to know zero accountability.
The ruling issued quietly in September 2020 states openly that the information which was produced by the unlawful investigation launched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in fact: illegally obtained, making it “fruit of the poisonous tree” per Silverthorne Lumber Co. v. United States, and Nardone v. United States. Cornell Law explains, that the legal doctrine “extends the exclusionary rule to make evidence inadmissible in court if it was derived from evidence that was illegally obtained. “The only exceptions are: if it was discovered from a source independent of the illegal activity; its discovery was inevitable, or if there is attenuation between the illegal activity and the discovery of the evidence.”, or meets the “good faith exception” where officers had a reasonable belief that they were acting legally and the order was later found defective. We’ve found out now that the good faith exception isn’t possible: the FBI lied on every application: and they knew they were lying. It’s the very opposite of acting in “good faith”, it’s prosecutorial malice.
The Carter Page Investigation Backfires After Gov’t Lied
The court has therefore excluded all evidence gathered under the FISA warrants to surveil Carter Page, with the exception that the DoJ may use it as basis for further inquiries “to investigate or prosecute potential crimes relating to the conduct of the Page or Crossfire Hurricane investigations”. In other words, it may be used to as evidence AGAINST the FBI and DoJ, but not for them to prosecute others. Furthermore, the DoJ must exhaustively PROVE that they need access to the data for a specific need that cannot be found elsewhere.
The court wrote,
“The Court is permitting use or disclosure of information obtained from electronic surveillance or physical search of Page only where it has been or can be demonstrated to be necessary to remedy or deter the types of harm,”
In conclusion, the court wrote, “Neither the government nor the Court is free to depart from the plain meaning of [the law] §§ l 809(a)(2) and l 827(a)(2) simply to facilitate actions thought to be reasonable, or even laudable. With regard to reviewing the conduct of government personnel and prosecuting any criminal violations by them, the Court is permitting use or disclosure of information obtained from electronic surveillance or physical search of Page only where it has been or can be demonstrated to be necessary to remedy or deter the types of harm at which§§ 1809 and 1827 are addressed.
The ruling handed down by the FISA court proves indefatigably that the Democrat Government under Obama was so utterly terrified of a Donald J. Trump presidency that they were willing to undertake massively illegal operations in the hopes that the ends would justify the means for them. They set the precedent that when it comes to taking and holding power: the rule of law means nothing to them. It’s a doctrine now set in stone by the Biden-Harris regime.
