ATTORNEY FOR WHISTLEBLOWER CALLS ON AMERICANS TO PROTEST DATA-HARVESTING FOR “NEFARIOUS PURPOSES”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 11, 2017) — In a video released by his “Freedom Watch” organization on Tuesday, Atty. Larry Klayman said that additional information about warrantless government surveillance of U.S. citizens is expected to be released “in the next days and weeks.”
The information was reportedly gleaned from his client, former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery.
“What we need is a thorough investigation done,” Klayman said of the information Montgomery has apparently revealed to the FBI.
“I urge you to rise up with Freedom Watch…” to fight government surveillance, Klayman said. “This cannot continue in a free nation.”
Klayman announced that the National Enquirer published an article he deemed “about 90% accurate” about Montgomery’s reported knowledge of surveillance and data-collection on businessmen, federal judges, Klayman, and Donald Trump when he was a businessman.
As Klayman has reported previously, Montgomery gave a recorded deposition and handed over 47 hard drives and 600 million records to two FBI agents almost two years ago allegedly demonstrating widespread government data-collection on private citizens. Montgomery was granted immunity for both testimony and production but has not been called upon to testify to Congress or a grand jury to anyone’s knowledge.
Klayman faulted FBI Director James Comey for failing to mention Montgomery’s revelations during his March 20 testimony to the House Intelligence Committee. Klayman believes that members of Congress are aware of the National Security Agency’s (NSA) collection of communications data on virtually all Americans which can then be used for what Klayman said are “nefarious purposes.”
In previous videos as well as Tuesday’s, Klayman ruminated that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts may have changed his June 2012 vote on the constitutionality of Obamacare as a result of government surveillance and resultant blackmail.
