(Feb. 16, 2018) — Constitutional attorney, former Florida prosecutor, disabled Army veteran, speaker and educator KrisAnne Hall said during the opening of her radio show on February 10 that the FISA court, which she believes is “unconstitutional” on its face for its secrecy, does not require a “probable cause” standard in order to issue a surveillance warrant to a requester.

“FISA” stands for “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act” passed in 1978 designed to allow for surveillance of “persons engaged in espionage or international terrorism against the United States on behalf of a foreign power.”

Hall’s husband, Pastor JC Hall, joined her on the show, whose introduction states that the creation of the FISA court has resulted in “judicial misconduct creating a complete destruction of Liberty all across America.”

The discussion centered on information revealed by a Republican-authored memo released on February 2 which claimed that the FBI and DOJ submitted faulty information to the FISA court in order to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, who was an informal Trump-campaign adviser in 2016, leading to the collection of an unknown number of communications Page had with others, likely involving congressmen.

Just before the first break at the 13:09 mark, KrisAnne made the point that the FISA court’s powers arose from the 2001 Patriot Act passed by Congress in the wake of the 9-11 attacks.

Following the break, she said that there is a need to promote an “educational process” about the unconstitutional activity and existence of the FISA court.

“Due process goes out the window,” JC commented in regard to the “construction” of the “secret court.”

KrisAnne posited that members of Congress who voted to create the FISA court have relied on the premise of “national security” to justify their decision in violation of their oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

At 18:38, KrisAnne said that the Michigan House of Representatives has voted to “remove support” from the enforcement of any FISA warrant in a proposal known as HB 4430.  At approximately 25:00, KrisAnne quoted U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts as having indicated his support for “nullification” of federal laws perceived to be unconstitutional by the states in his majority 2012 opinion on the constitutionality of Obamacare.  “The states are separate and independent sovereigns,” Roberts wrote as quoted by KrisAnne, and that “federal blandishments” need not be heeded by the states.

  1. I think the FISA judge could have been given a copy of the latest Batman comic as evidence to spy on Donald Trump and he/she would have said, “approved, go for it”.

  2. Very Interesting Legal Argument seen by Facts of Mueller’s Indictments

    Does Mueller Indictment Mean Clinton Campaign Can Be Indicted for Chris Steele?

    By that theory, when will Mueller indict Christopher Steele, FusionGPS, PerkinsCoie, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign? Mueller’s indictment against 13 Russian trolls claimed their social media political activity was criminal because: they were foreign citizens; they tried to influence an election; and they neither registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act nor reported their funding to the Federal Elections Commission.]…
