FISA Court should rescind all secret warrants based on DNC-funded Steele dossier

Feb. 2, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court to rescind all warrants it issued based on the erroneous, DNC-funded Christopher Steele dossier:

“The FISA Court must immediately rescind all warrants that were based on the DNC-funded Christopher Steele dossier if it has not already done so. Additionally, the FISA Court needs to order that all prosecutions based upon evidence through the unlawfully gained FISA Court warrant be dismissed with prejudice as fruit of a poison tree. The Fourth Amendment requires probable cause for a warrant. Everyday criminals receive the most basic constitutional protections, and the Obama Justice Department lied and connived to deny these protections to their political enemies. One of the main remaining questions is who of these faithless Justice Department employees will be fired and prosecuted for illegal spying. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s involvement in this sordid episode disqualifies him from further employment at the Justice Department and he must be terminated if he refuses to resign. This cannot be allowed to stand.”
