FISA court unseal opinion showing Obama used NSA to illegally record calls involving Americans, then waited til 12 days before election to admit it

If the following is true, it's a bombshell.  And even more stunning is that--again, if it's true--the Lying Mainstream Media didn't breathe a single word about it--and haven't yet, for that matter. 

The story is that Trump's team has admitted it secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans.

Did that get your attention?  Anger you?  Make you want congress to impeach him?  Probably all three.

Oh wait...I mis-read that:  The story is actually that last October 26th--less than two weeks before the election--the Obama administration disclosed that the NSA had been using its unlimited ability to intercept phone calls to illegally search Americans--apparently with Obama's consent.  And had been doing so for years.

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.

"The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later.

According to a document from the FISA court unsealed (i.e. made public) just one month ago (April 26, 2017), the normally supportive court excoriated Obama-administration officials, saying the failure to disclose the extent of the violations when discovered amounted to a “institutional lack of candor” and that the improper searches constituted a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

But hey, nothin' to see here, citizen.  Move on.
 The American Civil Liberties Union said the newly disclosed violations are some of the most serious to ever be documented and strongly call into question the U.S. intelligence community’s ability to police itself and safeguard American’s privacy as guaranteed by the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure.

“I think what this emphasizes is the shocking lack of oversight of these programs,” said Neema Singh Guliani, the ACLU’s legislative counsel in Washington. "

Now, I don't blame you for being skeptical as to whether this really happened.  That's very reasonable.  In that case you really need to click on the link above, which should go to a 99-page pdf.

This could be a hoax, but if so, someone went to extraordinary lengths in dummying up a 99-page court opinion.

So here's the point I'm trying to make:  The opinion was unsealed a month ago.  Yet you haven't heard a word about this in the Lying Mainstream Media.

Gosh, if the "legislative counsel" for the ACLU--which generally hates conservatives and defends Democrats to the max--says the newly-disclosed violations are "some of the most serious to ever be documented," do ya' think this news might be a big f'n deal?

You're damn right it's a big deal.  Yet...not a single word in the Lying Mainstream Media.

Think about that for awhile.

If the media will keep silent about this, can you trust them to tell you the truth about anything?

Not at all.

Next ask yourself:  Why would anyone at Obama's NSA admit these violations just 12 days before the election?  Simple:  It's a cover-your-ass move on the million-to-one chance that Hillary might lose the rigged election.

Why do I think it was a CYA thing?  Because the Obama administration waited until TWO DAYS before the court was scheduled (under normal procedures) to re-certify the NSA before "orally advising" the court of "significant non-compliance with...procedures" regarding revealing data on U.S. persons."  [Opinion, page 4, top]

Team Obama then waited until the actual day the court was scheduled to re-certify before it submitted a written account of the violations.

Wow, last day before re-cert, eh?  Evidently Team Obama thought the court would just give 'em a pass on the violations.  And if Hilliary had won--as everyone expected--no one would ever know or care that some arcane rule was broken. And all Team Obama lawbreakers would be home free.

Then the unthinkable happened:  Hilliary lost.

Now, my purpose here is not to make you aware of one more in an endless string of illegal acts committed by Obama and company, but just to let you see what lying sacks of shit the Lying Mainstream Media are.  The ACLU even said these violations are "some of the most serious to ever be documented."  If this had been done by a Republican it would be the lead story on every network for a solid week.

So it's now been a month since the court opinion was unsealed.  Not a peep.  Watch to see if you can find a single story about this in the Lying Media..
