Louie Gohmert has never been a shrinking violet. If you want to know what he’s thinking, all you have to do is listen to him because he will tell you point blank.
That is certainly true about his thoughts on the FISA memo that was released by the House Intelligence Committee on Friday. Gohmert says that Andrew McCabe, James Comey and Bruce Ohr should all be in prison for misleading the judge who issued the FISA warrants to the FBI using fake information.
Besides using the fake information, they withheld pertinent information on the Hillary/DNC dossier. Had the judge known it was an unverified opposition research paper paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, there’s no way they would have gotten the warrants.
“I think it’s important to know who the FISA judge was, and why with all the info he’s had for some time, he has not put anyone in jail for committing fraud on his court.”
“You shouldn’t be able to get quotes from Bruce Ohr or [former FBI Director Jim] Comey or [deputy director Andrew] McCabe because they ought to be sitting in jail for committing fraud upon the court.”
The memo said that Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS and that Ohr was passing on the work his wife was doing to the FBI. Ohr had meetings with Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS and with fake dossier author, Christopher Steele. Yet, none of this was made clear to the FISA judge.
But Gohmert points out that although the FISA judge was in the dark as far as the lack of disclosures at the time, he or she now knows that fraud was committed in his or her court and nothing has been done.
Gohmert said the judge should not be happy with that omission. “This was an action by the DNC and known collusion with top officials at the DOJ and FBI to commit a fraud upon the FISA court.”
He said the actions of the judge on the secret court need to be examined. “The judge has to have known for months now that he or she had a fraud committed against them and he or she has done nothing. Any judge worth any salt would have called them in for hearings, and he can even order anyone who committed fraud upon the court to go to jail. This judge is either worthless or is in cahoots with those who manipulated it.”
Gohmert asks the question if others have been subjected to such abuse of power. That is a question we really need an answer to.
