AG Barr Battles Intel Community And FBI. Illegal Surveillance Had Been Going On For Years.

President Donald Trump’s orders to declassify secret documents pertaining to the FBI’s investigation into his campaign in 2016, came after weeks of battles between Attorney General William Barr and senior officials within the bureau, CIA and other agencies, sources with knowledge told SaraACarter.com.

Despite the president’s order giving Barr authority over the declassification of the documents related to the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, it won’t be met without a fight. And there’s a reason why.

This isn’t just about Trump. It’s about nearly a decade of abuse inside the intelligence community and bureau regarding foreign-intelligence-collection authority. Why? Because it was carried out to monitor communications of Americans inside the United States and the procedures meant to protect Americans either swept up in those calls or targeted were not followed. The Fourth Amendment was under attack and abused for political purposes, say several retired intelligence sources.

“If the full extent of the abuse is made public the powers granted these agencies powers could be scaled back and those who allegedly abused their power could face prosecution,” one former senior intelligence official told SaraACarter.com.

Start from the top with the firing until you get a crew that will obey the law.

Barr has just disturbed a hornets nest. Be sure to wear protective devices.

Mitt Romney and 2014 Congressional Republicans were spied on folks.

The president can fire anyone who refuses to comply with the release of documents. I’d like to see heads roll if there is any delay.

"If...could..." won't.

“Mitt Romney ... spied on folks.”

His trip over to the dark side makes more sense now. Blackmail is powerful, especially if his facade is that of a religious leader in that cult of his.

Barr should use the power of the SWAT raid with great application. The left started it against innocents. It should be used 1000X against the guilty. Shoot first (except for those at the top who should be tortured and then executed). We learned from the left and turnabout is fair play.

It seems likely that FISA Court abuses have been happening since the court was established in 1978. Over time, as they realized what they could get away with, no doubt the abuses have become progressively worse

The more power you give the government, the more they will abuse it.

I agree. Barr should walk into these offices with US Marshalls and start cracking skulls.

Primary excuse, to save possible embarrassment to organizations or personnel, is not legitimate.

Sanitize all illegal activities with sunlight.

Fedzilla has been out of control for decades.

They have been spying on the citizens.

They have refused to enforce immigration laws.

They installed an ineligible usurper as President in violation of the Constitution.

We are much farther down the rabbit hole than most people can even acknowledge to themselves.

Absolutely no need to spy on Romney, he’s on their side.
