The free ride those NeverTrump leakers thought they had? It’s over. Laws have been broken, and someone will have to pay a price.
‘It’ just ‘got real’.
A legal advocacy group led by conservative radio host Mark Levin, the Landmark Legal Foundation, has filed a request with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requesting a “full investigation” of multiple leaks on surveillance activity conducted at the behest of the court.
Many former associates of President Trump were then identified in news reports, likely as a result of those requests. Landmark argues that this is an illegal abuse of the FISA process.
…The amicus curiae filed Thursday cites a “flurry of recent published reports” that disclose classified information, citing multiple anonymous sources. “The nature, timing and volume of classified information released indicated a systematic effort to exploit the orders of this Court for political purposes,” the filing reads.
The filing refers to a number of articles from the Washington Post, New York Times, the BBC and others which contain information related to the FISA Court, which was established under the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and oversees requests for surveillance warrants against foreign intelligence operations.
The articles cited concern former Trump associates: former campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump confidant Roger Stone and former campaign adviser Carter Page — all of whom are U.S. citizens who were “subject to a FISA warrant.” —Washington Examiner
