Secret surveillance court puts pressure on DOJ over Carter Page warrant records

The head of a top secret surveillance court, in an unusual letter to GOP lawmakers, seemed to put pressure on the Justice Department to consider releasing documents related to the 2016 surveillance warrant granted against a Trump campaign aide.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was responding to requests from the House Intelligence and House Judiciary committees for transcripts of hearings and other documents related to the applications to spy on Trump aide Carter Page.

Republicans claim the Obama FBI relied heavily on the unverified anti-Trump dossier in their application and failed to adequately disclose the document's Democratic funding.

We say "secret surveillance court" so easily.

When did we lose our respect for freedom?

A SECRET court with SECRET trials, based on secret evidence and used secretly against Americans citizens. If you're found guilty (your family isn't notified and you can't talk to them), you go to a SECRET PRISON in the USA.
And they have NO PROBLEM using made up evidence, "stories", and known lies to issue their secret "warrants".
Thomas Jefferson and George Washington would be puking right now (and plotting revolution).
EVERY right guaranteed to us BY LAW is thrown out the window and laughed at.
YOU cheer.
Right up to the point where YOU are in the dock.
That's when you'll be hoping some rednecks with guns will save you, because the people you cheered and trusted to "protect you" are getting ready to hook you up to a generator.
Keep cheering.
