    Rep. Gohmert: ‘Duped’ FISA Judge ‘Should Be Livid,' Jail Anyone Who Manipulated Him

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)

    If the FISA judge who signed the warrant to spy on a member of the Trump campaign was “duped” into doing it, he can and should jail the culprits for contempt – without a hearing – Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Wednesday.

    Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” former-judge Gohmert also repeated his ongoing call for full release of the FISA court transcripts, saying that the issuing judge was either “duped” – or complicit in signing the unjustified surveillance warrant:

    “One of two things – either the judge was duped with false information with the lies into signing a warrant or the judge is just so worthless he was part of all this and didn't care if he didn't have the facts.”​

    All it would take is for the judge to jail one lawyer to get to the truth, Gohmert said:

    “As a former judge, I could tell you and I was talking to John Carter, a former district judge, if somebody lied to us in court and especially a lawyer, we would be after their license to practice law. And I find out –that if you put one lawyer in jail one time for contempt, then the lawyers work really well with you after that and they are very honest and straightforward.”​

    If the judge was, indeed, manipulated he could – and should – immediately throw those responsible into jail for contempt, Rep. Gohmert concluded:

    “Either way, the judge should be livid in the fact that these guys didn’t go to jail for contempt.​

    “And, there are a couple kinds of contempt. You can have a contempt where a judge has to have a hearing, sort out the facts.

    “But, if a fraud is presented to the court and the court’s manipulated, you don’t have to have a hearing – you can just order them in contempt for six months in jail and these people should be in jail for what they did.”​

    This statement says it all: "...he issuing judge was either “duped” – or complicit in signing the unjustified surveillance warrant."

    My vote is for complicit. Why else would Nunes be wanting to talk to Justice Roberts, the man who is responsible for appointing the FISA judges, in front of Congress?

    They got a judge to rubber stamp the FISA. There was no duping. I bet the judge even corrected the typos for them.

    Going to the principle's office and getting disciplined are two separate things.

    Hopefully they get sent to Principle Joe Clark's (of Patterson, NJ) office.

    Gohmert is smart, he just publicly gave the FISA judge an out. Even if the judge is corrupt and was in on it he can save his ass by throwing others under the bus.
    We can persuade the judge to retire later.
    Also, the judge doesn't know how much the good guys know and could screw himself harder by not taking the olive branch. Others ARE talking by now.
    All in all a very good trap.

    Was listening to Dobbs on Sirius the other night. The warrant was resubmitted every 90 days due to expiring. The judges rotate on a regular basis and the claim was that three to four different judges had to have their hands on the document, not just one. Food for thought.

    That is why I voted for “complicit “. No wonder Nunez wanted to talk to Roberts. Either Roberts is in on it or he needs to sharpen the axe and start swinging since Roberts appoints. My vote is that Roberts has been compromised in some way and is firmly on the swamp’s side.

    Exactly!

    He may be a good man at heart if you believe some people but someone from the swamp definitely has a Sword of Damocles hanging above his head. There was simply no legal argument to allow Obamacare as it was written (or implemented). Any first year law student if they had made the same case about Obamacare as Roberts wrote in his opinion would have been told to find a different career.

    Duped? What on earth does anyone expect from a secret judicial system? The structure of the FISA court is the very definition of tyranny.

    Livid? Everyone should be livid. For the life of me I can't figure out how or why the American people put up with such a thing.

    Yet the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, thought otherwise. How does that happen?

    The rule of law in the US started being compromised in 1964! It's pretty much gone now!!
