ABC News: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch Signed FISA Applications

This should come as no surprise that Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed the FISA applications.

According to ABC News:

Loretta+Lynch+Justice+Department+Officials+t22xOgSF7TflMore than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

The FISA Court was put in place in 1978 when Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA):

The Court sits in Washington D.C., and is composed of eleven federal district court judges who are designated by the Chief Justice of the United States.  Each judge serves for a maximum of seven years and their terms are staggered to ensure continuity on the Court.  By statute, the judges must be drawn from at least seven of the United States judicial circuits, and three of the judges must reside within 20 miles of the District of Columbia.  Judges typically sit for one week at a time, on a rotating basis.

Pursuant to FISA, the Court entertains applications submitted by the United States Government for approval of electronic surveillance, physical search, and other investigative actions for foreign intelligence purposes.  Most of the Court’s work is conducted ex parte as required by statute, and due to the need to protect classified national security information.

Deck Stacked Against Trump: ALL FISA Judges appointed during Obama Era

We’ve now learned from Senator Tom Cotton that the wiretaps were most definitely placed in Trump Tower. Now we can more easily connect the dots.

Five of the current eleven judges are scheduled to remain on the court for President Trump’s entire first term. The other six judges’ terms expire before January 2021. Finally, seven of the judges are scheduled to remain on the court until 2020.

Justice Roberts Strikes Again

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005. As Chief Justice, one of his roles is to appoint judges to the FISA court. The man who gave us ObamaCare also presided over this fact; only two in over 10,000 applications were turned down by the FISA Court.

A lot of Democrats find themselves in DEEP DOO DOO over this. Watch as panic ensues.

Recall who is responsible for the FISC court, the actual court who heard the appeal. We wrote about this earlier in the week.

 The procedure is as follows. After denial of FISA applications, the action may be appealed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) of Review. FISC consists of a three judge panel. Since its creation, the court has come into session twice: in 2002 and 2008.
