Some Republicans Side with FISA Corruption against Trump Voters

The shameful allegiance the GOP hold to Big Brother makes them unable to stand against FISA corruption.

The problem of statists is that the FISA corruption appears to be the normal procedure of the FISA court. So Republican statists are publicly siding with the unelected bureaucracy against the elected President of the United States.

The Washington Times reports, “Trump’s claim of FBI ‘illegal scam’ puts him at odds with lawmakers, including Republicans.

President Trump on Sunday said top-secret documents prove the FBI spied on his 2016 campaign in an “illegal scam,” putting him at odds with Capitol Hill lawmakers, including Republicans, who say federal authorities were justified in tracking foreign policy adviser Carter Page.

In a series of tweets, the president argued heavily redacted documents — released late Saturday — show that agents misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by using a dossier partly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign to obtain a warrant to snoop on Mr. Page.

“Looking more & more like the Trump Campaign for President was illegally being spied upon (surveillance) for the political gain of Crooked Hillary Clinton and the [Democratic National Committee],” he tweeted.


Mr. Page was the subject of a “targeted recruitment” by the Russian government, according to the previously top-secret documents used by the FBI to obtain a wiretap warrant of the former campaign aide.


Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, said Mr. Page was on the FBI’s screen before the campaign.


“I think that’s different from spying on the campaign,” he told CBS’s Face the Nation.

But others, who wanted to defend the FISA court, now have realized the travesty. For example, consider the testimony of Andrew C. McCarthy:

McCarthy’s response is worth watching because he only recently (May) red-pilled himself and realized how corrupt the DOJ and FBI had actually become.  Prior to May of this year he was defending/reconciling every new detail to the benefit of DOJ/FBI.

Republicans need to stand against the deep state and defend our democracy from the election interference that these intelligence agencies have engaged in!

It seems many Republicans are hoping their voters will turn all their rage on Russia and not concern themselves with the unaccountable government agents undermining President Trump. But no one is convinced that Russia is a huge problem for Americans.
