All hell broke loose on Friday after Congress finally released the much anticipated FISA memo. Too bad for former FBI director James Comey, things just got way worse after he got some seriously bad news.

The left is desperately trying to play down the FISA memo, but for people who have two eyes and just the slightest bit of common sense, this is a pretty big deal. Not only did former President Barack Obama and his administration use their powers to abuse the rights of an American citizen, but they did so in a way that is proving to be extremely controversial.

From what we know, the disturbing reality started back in 2016 when, as Donald Trump previously accused, those working with and under the direction of the Obama administration submitted an application to the FISA courts asking for permission to spy on the then-presidential candidate.

Perhaps the most shocking aspect of this is that it was initially denied. As ABC reports, only two applications were denied out of 10,700 between 2009 and 2015, meaning that there was only a 0.02% chance of this happening. In short, this means they had absolutely no grounds to make such a request.

Desperate, they then turned to the Democrat-funded “Trump-Russia dossier,” also known as the “Steele dossier,” written by Fusion GPS. Of course, we now know just how flawed the document was with the newly released memo stating that the dossier was in its “infancy.”

Making matters worse, most of the information hadn’t been properly vetted, was created by pro-Hillary Clinton supporters, and paid for by the DNC. However, when the application was submitted to the FISA courts, all of this information, which pointed to heavy bias and inaccuracy, had been conveniently left out.

Too bad for those responsible, they’ve been trying to cover it up ever since — and it’s about to bite them big time. In fact, former FBI Director James Comey just got some seriously bad news. According to The Daily Caller, Congressman Louie Gohmert, who happens to be a former judge, states that a “FISA court judge has grounds to hold Department of Justice officials including Bruce Ohr in contempt of court for making misrepresentations about the sources of information used to obtain a surveillance warrant against a Trump associate.”

The recently released FISA memo explains that “Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump. Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably concealed” from the court when it was used to obtain a surveillance warrant. Even worse yet for those complicit in the scandal, Ohr isn’t the only one going down.

“I think it’s important to know who the FISA judge was, and why — with all the info — he’s had for some time, he has not put anyone in jail for committing fraud on his court,” Gohmert explained. “You shouldn’t be able to get quotes from Bruce Ohr or [former FBI Director Jim] Comey or [former FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe because they ought to be sitting in jail for committing fraud upon the court,” he added.

He said the actions of the judge on the secret court need to be examined. “The judge has to have known for months now that he or she had a fraud committed against them and he or she has done nothing. Any judge worth any salt would have called them in for hearings, and he can even order anyone who committed fraud upon the court to go to jail. This judge is either worthless or is in cahoots with those who manipulated it.”

Attorneys can be sanctioned by the bar association for misrepresentations, but they can also be held by the judge for contempt of court, he said. [Source: The Daily Caller]

Being a former court official himself, Gohmert states that these omissions should leave any judge ticked off. “This was an action by the DNC and known collusion with top officials at the DOJ and FBI to commit a fraud upon the FISA court,” he said.

Former President Barack Obama, along with the FBI and DOJ, went to some far lengths to get this FISA warrant and had to stoop to disgusting means to get it approved. Those responsible for violating the Fourth Amendment rights of the future President of the United States — or any American for that matter — need to be held accountable.

Just because they have the power doesn’t mean they have the right to do what they want. These guys omitted facts, knowing full well that if the courts had the big picture they wouldn’t have been granted approval. Everything up until this point, including their justification for the FISA warrant and the Russia investigation, has been based on lies. Irreparable damage has come to our Republic at the hands of Democrats, and it’s time that we demand justice for what they’ve done. They can’t be allowed to get away with this.
