The criminal conspiracy being conducted at the highest levels of government to overthrow President Trump just got a big helping hand from an obscure federal judge who sits on a secret court.
Friday’s bombshell release of the House Intel Committee memo that named names detailing how the FBI and Justice Department obtained the permission from the secret FISA court to spy on Trump campaign team members based on bogus information was an outrage.

Compounding that outrage is the ruling by Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Judge James E. Boasberg to keep the memos of former FBI Director James Comey regarding conversations with Trump secretly hidden from the public.
It was the memos that served as the impetus for the appointment of special counsel Robert “Bob” Mueller who has been given a sweeping mandate to produce impeachable “evidence” against the legitimately elected President of the United States.
Via Lifezette “Most Important Federal Judge You Don’t Know”:
He’s refusing to let Americans see former FBI Director James Comey’s memos on his talks with President Donald Trump.
Judge James E. Boasberg ruled Friday against making public former FBI Director James Comey’s seven memos describing his conversations with President Donald Trump. And by doing so, the jurist protected — at least for now — a key potential witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of allegations of collusion between the president’s 2016 campaign and agents of the Russian government.
Boasberg is a member of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) — the judicial body created by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 1978 and substantially updated in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
A Yale and Oxford graduate, Boasberg is hardly known to the American public despite his having recently decided cases of immense political significance. His father worked in the Office of Economic Opportunity, the central agency in President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” deluge of federal programs.
Comey wrote the memos because, he told the Senate Intelligence Committee last year, he feared Trump “might lie about the nature of our meeting, so I thought it important to document.” Four of the memos contain classified information; three of them do not.
Trump fired Comey May 9, 2017, a fact that could be significant if Mueller brings obstruction of justice charges against the chief executive. Comey’s memos could provide insight into Trump’s intent in removing the FBI chief.
Boasberg ruled against an ideologically diverse coalition of journalists and transparency advocacy groups who had filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for copies of the Comey memos.
Boasberg agreed with Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys who argued that releasing the memos would compromise an ongoing criminal law enforcement investigation — namely, the Mueller probe. Exemption 7 of the FOIA permits documents to be withheld under such circumstances.
There is no doubt Mueller is using the Comey memos in some fashion because, as Boasberg observed in his opinion, “the special counsel has ‘gathered’ or ‘used’ each of the Comey memos for his investigation.”

Judge Boasberg’s decision has the appearance of the Deep State putting a thumb on the scale to not only cover up for Comey who arranged for the leakage of one of the memos last year but also to protect Mueller from any accountability as he runs roughshod over the law.
It is not known whether Boasberg was one of the judges who signed off on the surveillance that was based on the bogus Fusion GPS-Christopher Steele dossier but the very idea of secret courts seems to fly in the face of a free republic and is more consistent with fascist regimes.
Another big question that goes unasked is that if Comey was the type who regularly kept memos to cover his rear end then where are the memos of his conversations with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch about her meeting with Bill Clinton on an airplane in Phoenix?
That was only shortly before Comey’s FBI cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing in the email “matter” and for a fastidious operator like Comey, it is incomprehensible that he wouldn’t have also documented those conversations.
In an interesting footnote, before he was appointed to the FISA court, Boasberg ruled against the release of the pictures of Obama bin Laden after the terrorist mastermind was killed in a 2011 raid on his compound in Pakistan. It would seem that he is a trusted servant of the Deep State which protects its own.
