The hunter becomes the hunted!
It’s about time good patriots started fighting back!!
Too often, when the powerful machine of government is turned against a private citizen, they feel they have no choice but to give up.
In Spygate, the government was turned against Donald Trump, who at the time was still just a private citizen.

After the election, Mueller’s investigation has turned that apparatus on Dr. James Corsi, trying to force him to lie, according to Corsi.
Corsi is not lying back, he’s fighting back and fighting back in a BIG way!
Nine figures big. That’s $350 Million to be exact, the amount Corsi just sued Mueller for.
Here was the announcement:
Rare Collector's Item:
And more, from CNN:
Jerome Corsi is suing Robert Mueller in federal court in the District of Columbia.
Previously, the Roger Stone acquaintance testified before the Mueller grand jury and publicly released a draft version of a criminal false statements plea with the Special Counsel's Office -- to which he refused to agree.
Now in the lawsuit, Corsi says federal authorities have unconstitutionally searched his electronic records and his phone.
However, Corsi's claims in the lawsuit appear to contradict his role in the probe so far.
For instance, Corsi previously openly admitted he cooperated with investigators and handed over his computers. "I handed over my cell phone, signed to the FBI permission to look at all my email accounts. When the FBI was having trouble downloading my tweets and Google, I worked by phone with the FBI from Quantico so they could get access to all my tweets," he said on a radio show last month.
The lawsuit is the latest example of pushback from individuals called upon by Mueller to provide information in the Russia probe.
Corsi claims that because he investigated Hillary Clinton's missing emails in 2016 and guessed Wikileaks would leak hacked emails from Clinton's campaign chairman, Mueller has unfairly targeted him.
"Defendant Mueller has threatened to indict Plaintiff Corsi and effectively put him in federal prison for the rest of his life unless Plaintiff Corsi would provide the false testimony that they demanded, even after being informed that the testimony desired would be false," Corsi wrote in the lawsuit.
Corsi, who has talked about his experience with the investigation to media and on his own show, also claims that Mueller has leaked grand jury secrets without providing any specific evidence beyond an article where sources are not described.
As an example, Corsi cites an ABC News article detailing how he has become a "central figure" in the Mueller probe and says Mueller spokesman Peter Carr periodically meets with journalists at the Paul coffee shop at 8th and Pennsylvania Avenue to leak information at Mueller's direction. Corsi provided an email between Carr and a journalist as proof, though it did not indicate any specific topic that was discussed or include any evidence of reporting from the journalist to prove a leak.
"These leaks are meant to pressure Plaintiff Corsi into providing the false testimony that Defendant Mueller and his staff seek by portraying Plaintiff Corsi negatively through the media, as well as to destroy him if he does not comply," Corsi writes in the lawsuit.
"These leaks are also intended to send a message to other supporters of the president that they had best comply with the unlawful demands of Defendant Mueller and his prosecutorial staff or be indicted or at the least irreparably smeared and destroyed in the public domain."
The lawsuit was filed Sunday night by Corsi's lawyer, the conservative freedom of information advocate Larry Klayman. Klayman previously won access to a collection of emails between the Special Counsel's Office and reporters, and attached some of these as exhibits in the case.
Mueller himself, as well as the Department of Justice, FBI, CIA and National Security Agency are named as defendants.
Corsi is asking for more than $350 million in damages. CNN contacted the Special Counsel's Office for comment on the lawsuit Sunday, but did not immediately receive a response.
The Hill also covered the story:
Conservative author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi on Sunday filed a lawsuit against special counsel Robert Mueller, alleging that Mueller illegally surveilled him as part of the investigation.
Corsi, in the document filed in the District Court for the District of Columbia, also claims that Mueller’s office leaked confidential information surrounding Corsi’s testimony before the special counsel’s grand jury.
“Defendant Mueller and his prosecutorial and media staff, acting in their official capacity and personally, also illegally released grand jury information to harm Plaintiff Corsi by attempting to destroy his reputation and personal and professional well-being and livelihood, thus also attempting to drive him into bankruptcy,” the document reads in part.
The special counsel's office declined to comment to The Hill. The lawsuit is also filed against the Department of Justice, the FBI, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the CIA.
Corsi has previously filed a complaint with the Justice Department over the Mueller investigation, requesting that criminal and ethical investigations be opened up into the special counsel's office.
Larry Klayman, Corsi's attorney and the founder of conservative watchdogs Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, claimed in a statement that Mueller and his team "are allegedly themselves acting in a criminal manner to further their attempted 'legal coup d'etat' to remove the president from office by any illegal means."
Both documents came after Corsi himself acknowledged that he will likely face an indictment from the special counsel in the near future.
He made public last month a plea deal offer from Mueller, in which Corsi would have pleaded guilty to one count of making false claims to investigators in exchange for no prison time. Corsi said he rejected the offer, and that he is prepared to die in prison.
In Sunday's lawsuit, Corsi alleges that Mueller's team took actions "intended to coerce, extort, threaten and/or blackmail him into submission and designed to remove the current president of the United States for political and other improper purposes."
The document claims that the Justice Department, FBI, NSA and CIA — in addition to Mueller — "have engaged in ongoing illegal, unconstitutional surveillance" on Corsi, violating his Fourth Amendment rights as well as other U.S. laws.
The conspiracy theorist also claimed that Mueller's team had leaked information about Corsi to the media.
The document pointed to an ABC News article about the special counsel's examination of Corsi, claiming it included details that "could only possibly have come from Defendant Mueller."
Those details include that Corsi has become a "central person of interest" to the special counsel, and that Mueller had evidence suggesting that Corsi had prior knowledge of WikiLeaks's release of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Corsi is requesting an injunction in his case, as well as $350 million in damages.
