The 4th Amendment; Americans’ protection against domestic spying is seen under assault based on the revelations from a recent April FISA court ruling.
While the public is beset with narratives distracting from what may turn into the biggest political scandal in our lifetime, the airwaves and corporate media feed a steady diet of “muh Russia hoax hysteria,” sans evidence or any crime 300 days and counting. The political underpinnings of that non-criminal probe with a newly appointed special counsel point to its origins in the scurrilous and thoroughly discredited Russia Dossier, a product of foreign intelligence efforts (one step removed with “former” tied to the UK’s MI6).
Putting aside the US paid “foreign interference” arranging that UK political operation in the US election for a moment, the shady dossier stands as what could be the basis of one example among untold hundreds of violations of domestic spying highlighted by Circa in its story:
Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties
According to the court ruling, the information has been illicitly shared with unnamed third parties raising all kinds of speculation about domestic spying weaponized against Americans given to political operatives and media.
Some civil liberty attorneys and finally the ACLU are taking note. One prominent liberal Democrat among them, Alan Dershowitz, is asking about the basis for a special counsel investigation and the lack of any crime (not to mention the media slurring numerous people along the way).
Talking Ed Note: If everyone is subject to illegal surveillance re: domestic spying at any time, be it a US Senator, a Supreme Court justice, anyone running for office or mere citizens petitioning government, who’s safe from Stasi police state tactics? Muh Russia, Russia.
