Federal Judge rules, explains how high-tech spy programs ‘likely violate the Constitution’

Evidence exists of an FBI mole becoming involved in the 2016 Trump for President Campaign.  He/she reported to upper-echelon leaders at the FBI, CIA and/or other law enforcement or intelligence agencies, top investigative journalist and Fox News contributor  Kimberly Strassel reported in her Wall Street Journal column.

When Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed on Fox News that a British intelligence agency was spying on the Trump campaign on request from the Obama inner-circle, Napolitano was taken off the air and suspended from Fox. BUT, they rehired him two days later and Napolitano continued to report about the government deception.

Her report is just one more description of the Deep State’s disgraceful disregard for the law and for ethics. Strassel’s report also confirms long-held suspicions that an FBI/DOJ agent provocateur attempted to ensnare Trump or members of his campaign team with what the Democrats have created with the help of the news media:  a Russia-Trump collusion trap.

Starssel’s latest revelation comes after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein again backed down after a protracted fight with Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, allowing members to view classified documents about “a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign.” While not mentioning the name of the FBI mole or informant, sources offered their own educated guesses as to the identity of the “political spy.”

Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it. – Kim Strassel, Wall Street Journal 

One source claims he believes the mole is right there at the top of the Justice Department. The source claims it’s none other than Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who quickly volunteered to recuse himself from the Russia-Trump Collusion investigation and allowed Rosenstein to name a special prosecutor and to control the actions of Independent Counsel Robert Mueller.

Another source said she believes the mole is actually someone being paid by the Deep State; someone who is familiar with federal law enforcement and intelligence trade-craft.

“The FBI and DOJ had apparently been hiding the critical information from congressional investigators for months in order to protect the top-secret intelligence source,” wrote Strassel.

“The problem is that most Americans are being denied access to this and other pieces of evidence because the news media hate President Donald Trump more than they hate fascistic political tactics,” added former military intelligence operative and big-city police lieutenant Michael Snopes.

The post-election hoopla over the loss of the election by Hillary Clinton served it’s purpose: It got the news media to go off chasing the elusive dog-track rabbit. It was an almost perfect plan of deception. Except it wasn’t Clinton who won, it was “The Donald.”

Federal Judge rules ‘high-tech spy program likely violates the Constitution’

Some observers on both the left and the right on the political spectrum are hoping the federal courts will do more to protect the privacy of American citizens and that federal judges will also address the alleged abuses of privacy not only by the CIA, NSA, FBI and ATF, but also by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), whose secret program is considered even more unconstitutional than the National Security Agency spy program.

Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia asserts that the current high-tech spy programs “likely violate the Constitution” and said he believes “the loss of constitutional freedoms for even one day is a significant harm [to the nation].”

For the last six years, the nation’s narcotics enforcement agency working in the midst of the drug war on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border have obtained subpoenas in order to access the vast AT&T database which stores the records of phone calls made by residents of the United States, according to a former drug enforcement agent and crime analyst, Timothy McMillan.

While the method of data collection is similar to that of the National Security Agency, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) spy program’s years of existence far surpasses the NSA. According to an official from the American Civil Liberties Union, “Calling patterns can reveal when we are awake and asleep; our religion, if a person regularly makes no calls on the Sabbath, or makes a large number of calls on Christmas Day; our work habits and our social aptitude; the number of friends we have; and even our civil and political affiliations. . . .”

The DEA’s spy program, which was dubbed “Hemisphere Project,” entails AT&T (American Telephone and Telegraph) being paid by the feds to place some of its security staff in drug-enforcement task forces comprised of DEA agents and state/local police investigators. These AT&T private security officials would then give drug enforcement commanders the collected phone data going back to files during the Reagan Administration, according to McMillan.

“The DEA program far exceeds the NSA program, which allegedly stores data for nearly all telephone calls made or received in the United States for a period of five years,” said Det. McMillan, who possesses a doctorate in International Affairs.

President Barack Obama’s minions have conceded to the New York Times that AT&T’s security staff members are embedded in government drug task forces in a number of states, and admitted that the surreptitiously collected data is stored by AT&T, a private company, and not by the government or contractors working for U.S. government agencies.

Privacy violation issues may arise because the data is allegedly retrieved through the decisions of DEA superiors who routinely issue “departmental subpoenas” instead of the subpoenas that must be secured from a federal grand jury or US judge.

Senior Judge Richard Leon has a wealth of legal experience as a private-practice attorney, a federal prosecutor, a Special Counsel (Clintons/Whitewater), and head of the Justice Department’s Environment Division.
Judge Leon was appointed to the United States District Court in February 2002. He received his A.B. from Holy Cross College in 1971, his J.D. cum laude from Suffolk Law School in 1974, and his LL.M. from Harvard Law School in 1981. Immediately prior to his appointment to the bench, Judge Leon was engaged in private practice in Washington, D.C., as a partner in the Washington office of Baker & Hostetler (1989-1999), and Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease (1999-2002). Prior to and while in private practice, Judge Leon served as counsel to Congress in the investigations of three sitting Presidents. In 1987, he was the Deputy Chief Minority Counsel for the U.S. House Select “Iran-Contra” Committee. From 1992-1993, he was the Chief Minority Counsel to the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee’s “October Surprise” Task Force. In 1994, Judge Leon was Special Counsel to the U.S. House Banking Committee for its “Whitewater” investigation. He also served in 1997 as Special Counsel to the bipartisan U.S. House Ethics Reform Task Force. Earlier in his career, Judge Leon served at the U.S. Department of Justice in a number of positions including Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Environment Division, Senior Trial Attorney in the Criminal Section of the Tax Division, and as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York. He also served as a Commissioner on the White House Fellows Commission and the Judicial Review Commission on Foreign Asset Control. A former full-time law professor at St. John’s Law School (1979-1983), Judge Leon is currently an adjunct law professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and the George Washington University Law School.
