Yes. Yes, indeed.
Although this is a long-ish read, here is a key section:
...It’s here that we tie back to The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333 – Obama’s NSA Data-sharing Order.
I’ve written about this twice – first on April 4, 2017. And again on December 17, 2017, as events provided greater clarity.
Section 2.3 had been expected to be finalized by early to mid-2016. Without notice, the order was delayed.
James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, didn’t sign off on Section 2.3 until December 15, 2016. The order was finalized when Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed it on January 3, 2017.
Prior to the formal signing of Section 2.3, greater latitude existed within the White House in regards to collection of information – especially in relation to the Trump Campaign.
Thus, the delay in implementation. The Obama White House specifically delayed signing Section 2.3 until the final days of the Administration – after every possible byte of information had been collected.
Once signed into effect, Section 2.3 granted broad latitude to inter-agency sharing of information.
By the time the new order was signed on January 3, 2017, all information was already in the Obama White House’s possession.The bastards were spying on Ben Carson's campaign, too--which gives rise to THIS question; who ELSE'S campaign was being spied on by Obama, Yates, Lynch, Clapper, Comey, et. al.??
One other item to note.
In 2015, Inspector General Michael Horowitz requested oversight of the DOJ’s National Security Division (NSD). Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates responded with a 58 page Memorandum, that effectively told the Inspector General to go pound sand.
No NSD oversight would be allowed.
This is the same division where the Section 702 violations appear to have occurred under NSD Head John Carlin....
Another question raised in the linked article: which FISA judge was (corruptly) complying with known violations of FISC regulations (and the 4th Amendment)??
