Judicial Watch Claims FISA Judge Was Just A ‘Rubber Stamp’… Her Sudden Retirement Leaves Unanswered Questions
Justice Collyer, head of the FISA Court gave the FBI hell over the Carter Page file… but are her own hands in this scandal really so very clean themselves?
Was that judge truly doing the job she was sent there to do? Or was she merely ‘phoning in’ one of the most critical jobs in protecting the rights of citizens against abuses by their own government?
We have some serious questions.
As Mark Levin pointed out, the Law Firm for which he’s Chairman, Landmark Legal Foundation, tried to bring this issue up in 2017, drawing attention to irregularities and concerns that could be pieced together through what was known in the public record — even BEFORE that fourth FISA warrant was filed — but their motion to the court was dismissed after only 5 days.
That wasn’t the only problem raised with her time in the FISA courts.
Justice Collyer the head of FISC was told face to face by Admiral Rodgers, NSA Secretary that fraud had happened on her court in Oct. 2016. Rep Meadows told her in 2017 and Nunes twice in 2019. Since 2016 she ignored them. Now, she announced her retirement. pic.twitter.com/gBMWBJoxen

Meadows in 2017? Nunes in 2018? And she continued overseeing a court that was running roughshod over citizens’ rights with impunity?
There were some ‘known issues’ reported to the Courts long before now:
Rogers’s recollection was correct. On Oct. 24, 2016, Rogers verbally informed the FISA court of his findings (Page 4 of court ruling):
“On October 24, 2016, the government orally apprised the Court of significant non-compliance with the NSA’s minimization procedures involving queries of data acquired under Section 702 using U.S. person identifiers. The full scope of non-compliant querying practices had not been previously disclosed to the Court.”
Rogers appeared formally before the FISA court on Oct. 26, 2016, and presented the written findings of his audit (Page 4, 14 & 19 of Court Ruling & Senate testimony).

That heads-up would have been early enough to stop several of the FISA warrants against Trumpworld from being issued unchallenged, and the issues could have been spotted long before now.
Suddenly, the Judicial Watch findings from August seem a lot more ominous:
“It is disturbing that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance courts rubber-stamped the Carter Page spy warrants and held not one hearing on these extraordinary requests to spy on the Trump team,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Perhaps the court can now hold hearings on how justice was corrupted by material omissions that Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC, a conflicted Bruce Ohr, a compromised Christopher Steele, and anti-Trumper Peter Strzok were all behind the ‘intelligence’ used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team.”
That might land a serious blow to the credibility of a court that is inherently dangerous to the rights of free citizens.
Is there any wonder the anti-Trump cabal felt like they could flaunt the laws, game the system, and get away with it?
(It’s all for the ‘greater good’, of course. Just like every other socialist project where the ends justify the means.)
For all of the sudden (supposed) interest in stopping ‘tyranny’ on the part of Democrats and the media, they sure do seem willfully blind to some actual abuses of political power.
Why could that *possibly* be, do you suppose?
