Petition at WhiteHouse.gov calls for arrest of those who perpetrated FISA abuses

A petition at We the People, the web page begun by Barack Obama at the WhiteHouse.gov website, calls on Congress and other law enforcement authorities to arrest those involved in the FBI’s abusive FISA surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser detailed in a controversial intelligence memo.

The petition was filed by an Air Force veteran who served in the intelligence field. He agrees with Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona who said, according to a report by The Hill, that the FBI’s surveillance of that campaign adviser “constitutes treason.”

Gosar said in a statement that he will co-author a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions seeking “criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation,” referring to those who authorized the surveillance warrant.

The House Intelligence Committee memo, declassified for public release on Friday, claims that a dossier of information alleging ties between President Trump and Russia “formed an essential part” of the warrant obtained in October 2016 for surveillance on Carter Page. At the time, Page was not an adviser to the Trump campaign.

Gosar zeroed-in on the Republican memo’s claim that the surveillance requests to the FBI and Justice Department did not mention that the work of Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the dossier, was funded in part by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

“This is third world politics where the official government agencies are used as campaign attack dogs,” Gosar said.

The petition states:

In reading the released memo, I, an Air Force veteran, who served in the Intelligence field against the former USSR, do declare and demand that those involved with the false allegations and lies to the FISA court, that pertains to the infamous, Democrat-funded anti-Trump dossier, to be charged with treason, and arrested without due delay under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, where any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution, “betrayal of allegiance to the United States”, as such an act(s) has been shown that such an act has been committed. Arrest without delay with Federal charges of “treason.” [Emphasis added]
