On Thursday, the House voted in favor of the renewal of section 702 of the FISA Act. The FISA court was politicized under the Obama administration. A bombshell report published Wednesday by Sara Carter confirmed what we have long suspected–Hillary’s phony Russia dossier was used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Fox News reports: The renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which lets agencies collect information on foreign targets abroad, was approved on a 256-164 vote. The bill now heads to the Senate.
[…]Earlier Thursday, the House voted down an alternative FISA bill by the libertarian Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, which would have imposed multiple restrictions on spying.
Freedom Caucus member Rep. Jim Jordan says he voted against the bill. Jordan cites the 4th Amendment and protecting the privacy of American citizens. Jordan says the government should have to get a search warrant in order to look at Americans’ “content and materials”.
Thoughtful leaders on both sides of the aisle know FISA section 702 is a vital and carefully overseen tool to protect this country. This isn’t about politics. Congress must reauthorize it.

Fired FBI Director James Comey just couldn’t help himself and had to weigh in on Thursday’s House vote. Comey tweeted, “Thoughtful leaders on both sides of the aisle know FISA section 702 is a vital and carefully overseen tool to protect this country. This isn’t about politics. Congress must reauthorize it.” Very rich coming from one of the most corrupt FBI Director’s this country has ever seen.

Sean Hannity told his audience Wednesday he heard either former FBI Director James Comey or FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe paid for the phony Trump dossier that was then used by US intelligence officials to spy on Trump. Also, according to Sara Carter, her sources also stressed that there will be more information in the coming week regarding systemic “FISA abuse.”
Freedom Caucus member Rep. Mark Meadows had this to say about the dossier and FISA abuse: Some of the things that will be coming out are so unbelievable that the FBI and DOJ would actually allow it to happen. And I would also say that there are other agencies… We are focusing in, honing in on that target.
Hillary Clinton’s dirtiest political trick to date is the multi-million dollar Russia dossier her campaign paid for to not only smear a political opponent, but to illegally spy on the campaign as well.
