Senior U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer, Presiding Judge of the U.S. Foreign Surveillance Court, on April 26, 2017, ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to destroy evidence of illegal domestic surveillance collected on and before March 17, 2017, the exact date on which “The American Report” published the first full-length report revealing John Brennan and James Clapper’s use of “THE HAMMER” to wiretap Donald Trump.

Nearly two weeks earlier, on March 4, 2017, The American Report became the first and only media organization to connect President Trump’s March 4, 2017 tweet accusing President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower to secretly-recorded audio from the Whistleblower Tapes revealing that Brennan and Clapper wiretapped Donald Trump.

The American Report immediately responded to President Trump’s tweet via a March 4, 2017 American Report tweet, in an attempt to confirm to the President that he was under surveillance.

Robert Mueller provided FBI computers for “THE HAMMER,” an illegal domestic surveillance system operated from a secret CIA facility by President Obama’s intelligence officials Brennan and Clapper to spy on Supreme Court justices and Donald Trump for “blackmail” and “leverage,” according to CIA/FBI/NSA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery.

On February 3, 2009, THE HAMMER went live, under the direction of Brennan and Clapper, says Montgomery. 

Brennan, Clapper, and Mueller set up “THE HAMMER” in Fort Washington, Maryland, close to the Obama White House, and used the system to unlawfully spy on Trump and Trump’s businesses, family members, and political associates, asserts Montgomery.

The American Report published an exclusive exposé titled “Whistleblower Tapes: Trump Wiretapped “A Zillion Times” By ‘The Hammer,’ Brennan’s and Clapper’s Secret Computer System” on Friday, March 17, 2017. 

That same afternoon, March 17, 2017, as Members of Congress were leaving Washington for St. Patrick’s Day weekend, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Ranking Member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, held a classified briefing about President Trump’s claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

Two days later, on March 19, 2017, Four Star Navy Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons and Air Force Three Star General Thomas McInerney brought The American Report’s exposé on Dennis Montgomery and “THE HAMMER” to America’s radio airwaves during the broadcast of Operation Freedom with Dr. Dave Janda on WAAM 1600.

That same evening, March 19, 2017, FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page exchanged a text message that specifically mentioned Montgomery and Montgomery’s attorney Larry Klayman.

The following morning, March 20, 2017, FBI Director Comey launched the hoax Trump Russian collusion investigation and lied before Congress by claiming that the FBI had no information confirming President Trump’s claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. Montgomery, in fact, provided Comey’s FBI with 47 hard drives of evidence that, according to Montgomery, proves that Brennan and Clapper used THE HAMMER to wiretap Trump.

Judge Collyer’s April 26, 2017 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order states:

  1. No later than June 26, 2017, the government shall submit one or more written reports that provide the following:
  1. the results of the government’s investigation of whether there have been additional cases in which the FBI improperly afforded non-FBI personnel access to raw FISA-acquired information on FBI systems; and
  2. a description of the installation of the [REDACTED] by [REDACTED] personnel on an FBI system including:


  1. At 90-day intervals, the government shall submit written updates on NSA’s implementation of the above-described sequester-and-destroy process to information acquired on or before March 17, 2017 by upstream Internet collection under Section 702. 

“NSA will no longer collect certain internet communications that merely mention a foreign intelligence target,” the NSA stated on April 28, 2017.

The NSA further stated that it will “delete the vast majority of its upstream internet data to further protect the privacy of U.S. person communications.”

Judge Collyer’s order to delete domestic surveillance data constitutes destruction of evidence of a crime and is a violation of the Federal Records Act.
