President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.

He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.

The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…

Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.

Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”

“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.

“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.

President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.

“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.

The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.

Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick

She’s reportedly the frontrunner.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
