Loretta Lynch’s incredulous testimony to House over FISA spying application

Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a closed-door Congressional testimony last Dec that she had no recollection of signing FISA court applications to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Lynch, although acknowledging that her signature as AG is required, bit told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, according to Sara Carter who has strong Capitol Hill sources.

The ex-AG told lawmakers that her deputies, first Sally Yates, and then he renewal was approved by Rod Rosenstein. Other signatories were former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

In contentious testimony to Goodlatte’s queries, Lynch told repeatedly in many different iterations that she was aware the AG needed to be final sign off on all FISA applications and renewals, but had no memory of approving the spying of Carter Page.

Yesterday, I wrote about the intense spying application on Page.

The key to Lynch’s testimony is that the ex-AG said: “Don’t remember,” Don’t have a recollection” and “Don’t recall” are the answers she gave Goodlatte to his incredulous questions of how she allegedly delegated her responsibility as the nation’s top law official when it came to spying on an American citizen working for a Republican presidential campaign.

Kavanaugh’s vote will unleash Five Eyes abuses

As SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s future begins to clear with an approval vote happening most likely on Saturday, the FISA document disclosures are coming to the fore.

Officials from UK, New Zealand and Australia are attempting to squash the document release showing that under the Five Eyes intelligence program their government espionage offices spied on President-elect Trump and his staff after the 2016 election.

The 5 Eyes program is a cooperative arrangement between the US intelligence community and Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. These allies provide intelligence to each other when the host country cannot spy on its own citizens.

It is alleged that under the program Australian and New Zealand intelligence agents provide DOJ/CIA/FBI with information on the 2016 Trump campaign as well as after the election.

So, according to ex-FBI general counsel James Baker’s testimony not only did the Obama administration through Attorney General Loretta Lynch use former British spy Christopher Steele’s bogus Russian Dossier report to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and his president-elect team, but also used the Dossier to have our allies — specifically Australia and NZ to spy on the Trump team as well. Since the CIA could not legally run surveillance on Trump, Obama’s CIA Director John┬áBrennan put these two countries intelligence assets to work for the Democratic party.

So while the Senate Judiciary committee finishes up on the Kavanaugh nomination, The House Judiciary committee under Rep. Robert Goodlatte is looking into the above matter as well as Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyers at Perkins Cole.

The show may finally be starting.
