Judicial Watch Reveals Surveillance Targets Requested by U.S. Ambassador Yovanovitch and State Department – But Bigger Question is Missing…

There are times during research when searching for details leaves the obviously immediate questions unanswered.  This is one of those examples.  Judicial Watch is hot on the trail of a State Department effort to monitor domestic political opposition.

Specifically former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, initiated a request for State Dept. officials to conduct surveillance on: Jack Posobiec, Donald Trump Jr., Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Michael McFaul (Obama’s ambassador to Russia), Dan Bongino, Ryan Saavedra, Rudy Giuliani, Sebastian Gorka, John Solomon, Lou Dobbs, Pamella Geller and Sara Carter.

More details:

(Via JW) Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources.

Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch. Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means. Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs.

After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” according to a senior State Department official. If the illicit operation occurred, it seems to indicate a clear political bias against the president and his supporters.

Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who has also led American embassies in Kyrgyzstan and Armenia, was appointed ambassador to Ukraine by Obama in 2016. She was recalled by the State Department in May and remains a State Department employee in Washington D.C. (read more)

Judicial Watch is on an honorable and righteous mission; and I do not mean to diminish the importance of their work. However, I find myself slightly annoyed at this issue because a simple question is not being asked.

Obviously Maria Yovanovitch was aware of some pre-existing process that facilitated the surveillance of U.S. persons adverse to the interests of the U.S. State Department; and obviously some process was initiated in order for it to be “ceased or concealed”, right?

Well, the simple question is “HOW”?

How exactly does the U.S. State Department monitor people or persons they define as adverse to their interests?

Unfortunately I think we might have the answer to that question: SEE HERE

And also unfortunately, within that explanation there is another obvious question that doesn’t require thousands of pages of evidence, testimony and FISC debate.

Despite all of the extensively legally written scripts describing the process no-one, including the judges outlining the problem, pauses to ask the simple question “WHY“?

One of the weird aspects to both Collyer and Boasberg is that both FISC judges did not ever seek to ask the “why” question: why are all these unauthorized database searches taking place? Instead, both judges focus on process issues and technical procedural questions, seemingly from a position that all unauthorized searches were done without malicious intent. (more)

  • How does the state department monitor their adversaries?
  • Why is the NSA FISA(702) database used to monitor non-foreign persons?

Simple questions that should not require years of investigations to answer.

Frustrating….

    Now isn’t that interesting. The list of targets includes many of President Trump’s biggest supporters in opinion journalism, mostly at Fox News and Fox Business.

    There was a recent report that Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, and Chris Wallace sneered at President Trump in a conference call with advertisers. Does that include selling their colleagues into illegal political surveillance? Is that a news story that the new Paul Ryan Fox News can cover?

  3. Frankly, “Washington, DC has overlooked – and, richly profited from – criminality for so very, very long that it has grown completely insensitive to it.” Probably, “rule #1” was: “keep your nose down, do your job, work toward your pensioon-date, and above all, never ask why.”

    And, “until Donald Trump 2016,” that basically worked.

      Let’s face it, Soros is not exactly a common conversation topic for your average Republican, doubly so on international calls. If someone says Soros in a call, the NSA should sweep it up and a request like this would flag it out. And we know that the unmasking process works so well, it’s trivial for them to flag the name of the person inquiring about Soros. Now you’ve connected a name to a call, and you have advance warning someone is sniffing around the dirty laundry.

          Maybe Sundance is wrong here in suggesting that these searches may have been through the NSC databases. If their function was simply to act as trip wires, these may have simply been searches of all of the available public media. The conspirators needed to know *when* they had to initiate their planned Ukraine impeachment fraud, which they initiated a couple weeks ago in order to prevent Barr from investigating their earlier illegal actions in Ukraine.

Can whole agencies be disbanded and rebuilt? Of course, once you have big and largely unlimited government, it become less and less possible to rid it of corruption. It has enormous power, therefore, it becomes corrupt.

    If the government survives the coup, it would seem to me that there will need to be purges. As a practical matter, could there be?

      Great question, Jimmy If we survive as a country, it would still be very difficult to reform, in part because we all rely on technology and the technology spies on us 24/7 with/without consent. In part because everyone with a will to reform, also has a will to “just walk away.” Corrupt institutions are more likely to be abandoned and fail, than to rejuvenate as healthy institutions. What would it take? A new internet designed to block and disable the constant spying on us that is worth so many billions. You can’t disable the government’s spying capabilities while leaving the means of spying available to foreign governments, hackers, and everyone who wants to sell us anything. There has to be a return to privacy, but would people pay for secure technology that is no longer free? One idea that occurred to me is to require tech companies that spy on us to share their revenue derived from use of our data with those of us spied upon, and share with us our data that is being sold. That way people would see what data is being stolen, and how much people are paying for it. But I don’t know if a secure internet could make it as a business model. Who would pay for it, when we’re all conditioned to expect it to be free?

      The “how” question remains relevant because

      1) If, as implied, the FISA/NSA database is or plays a major role in the “how” we have already seen that process was not only abused, but continued to be abused *after* it deemed illegal. The fact that State may have had access to that intelligence implies that other agencies did as well, and misused them as well. It also begs the question as to whether State should have even had access to the database in the first place, for any reason.

      2a) If it is not related to FISA/NSA, then there is *at least* one other intelligence system government officials attempted, at the very least, to use to illegally spy on American citizens. The existence of such intelligence systems should be known and documented, especially since they have a tendency to be misused.

      2b) Given what is known regarding continued FISA abuse and its mutation into the Mueller Investigation I am not willing to accept the claim the attempt stopped, or that a different approach was not taken, once State’s pipeline was shut down. For all we know, it could have shifted over to some other agency’s intelligence program.

      Perhaps you are correct that the attempt ceased immediately, but there is no way to determine if this was the case unless the “how” question is answered.

      • Pew-Anon says:

        The “*after* it deemed illegal” part would seem to suggest that all the continued abuse identified in the FISA judge memos was the result of this one Ambassador’s surveillance efforts. That seems unlikely to me, but certainly possible. It is also possible there is rampant abuse far outside the DoS, the volume of which would barely be dented by the ceasing of the Ambassador’s schemes, in which case inquiring specifically into the Ambassador’s methods would likely be fruitless.

    Yes, why…Why is the NSA FISA(702) database used to monitor non-foreign persons…especially when they have other tools like:

    One might surmise the “Why” is already known to the fully politically weaponized Swamp bureaucracy and environs – to protect itself from the wiser and more nimble Deplorables who are knowledgeable to the political machinations of the Swamp.

    The same may be said for the “How” – the Swamp already knows “How,” either approves or doesn’t care, and/or regard it as SOP. The Swamp’s only action/reaction is to protect itself, and go after those the Swamp views as potential danger.

    Betcha a dozen Krispy Kremes this blog owner is on one of those lists, one that is rather more well-hidden. After all, those named above are the “usual suspects,” are they not?

    This is what I keep talking about—why does Judicial Watch have to file a FOIA request for ANYTHING out of THIS State Department? MIKE POMPEO IS IN CHARGE OF IT. This is TRUMP’S secretary of state!

    Pompeo should just order the subject department employees to search every database of records, phone calls, emails and smoke signals sent or received by Yovanovitch and RUSH them over to Tom Fitton. Why the hell does Tom Fitton have to fight and claw and use judges to force turnover of damaging documents with Pompeo being no differrent than if CLINTON was there ?

    This is outright absurd ! It’s happened time and time again. No cooperation whatsoever.

    Am I the only one who smells a rat here ? Tom Fitton will tell you he does.

    Since Barr couldn’t find this out, let’s close down the DOJ and just let Judicial Watch take over.

    Sharyl Atkisson was interviewed on Huckabee’s show a day or so ago, and she told the story of the O admin spying on her and said don’t think all this spying started with Trump. It has been going on for a very long time. Using govt agencies to destroy your opponents…this is not America!

    The WHY question isn’t being asked because they already have the answer. The answer is most likely due to an agenda so serious it can’t be disclosed yet. I know you are reluctant to hope for that however Ive notixe more recently a few posts show you may be opening to this potential path. Only time will tell if this theory is true but looknat how much has come out already. Seems like prepping the battlefield and public optics for the next phase.
