WATCH: Posobiec says it's 'absolutely chilling' FISA warrant was used to spy on Trump camp

"We now know that that lie was used to start a FISA warrant on a sitting member of the political opposition. This is something that should be absolutely chilling to you," said Posobiec.

Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec broke down the chilling facts around how DNC Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann lied to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on political opponents.

"Go all the way back," Posobiec started. "How did we get here. Durham goes with these allegations against Trump, specifically the allegation about this Alpha Bank, and that the Trump organization had some computer data that showed the data. Secret communication with the Alpha Bank, we didn't know exactly what this was at the time, one big Washington Post story and it disappeared after that," he said.

"What we didn't know is that, behind the scenes, this guy Sussmann was reaching out to his buddies at the FBI, James Baker, telling them that they needed to start an investigation, based on this information that he wasn't working on behalf of any campaign. We now know that was a lie," Posobiec declared.

On September 19, 2016, Sussmann met with FBI general counsel Baker, where Baker was provided with data and a "white paper" reportedly to show covert communications between Russia and the Trump organization, reports Techno Fog.

Special Counsel John Durham provided evidence that on September 18, 2016, Sussmann sent Baker a text stating that he was working on his own: "Jim, it's Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive and sensitive I need to discuss. Do you have the ability for a short meeting tomorrow, I'm coming on my own, not on behalf of client or company, I want to help the bureau, thanks.'"

This text was sent while he worked for the Clinton campaign.

"We now know that that lie was used to start a FISA warrant on a sitting member of the political opposition. This is something that should be absolutely chilling to you regardless of where you call on the political spectrum," said Posobiec.

"If we had gotten to the point where we are spying on the opposition candidate for office because we don't like their politics, because we don't want them to win, we'd be willing to spread any spurious accusation against them, to use the power of the state, to use the power of federal law enforcement and the national security state, again, always in the name of defending the homeland, in the name of national security.

"Do you know what they do in the name of national security in China... and in Hong Kong? They lock up people like Cardinal Zen, who just got locked up last week in Hong Kong, again, in the name of national security," he said.

"Hong Kong police from the national security department arrested prominent Hong Kong catholic Cardinal Zen, 90, and four others for alleged 'collusion with foreign forces,'" Posobiec reminded listenerd.

"All of those arrested were trustees of the 612 Humanitarian Relief Fund, which provided legal and financial assistance to more than 2,200 people prosecuted for their part in the 2019 pro-democracy protests," this according to The Guardian.

Posobiec then brought up the issue that once this gets to jury, that it will be difficult to ensure that it isn't infiltrated by activists.

"It's going to a DC jury," said Posobiec. "As we've seen in the past, activists have the ability to get on these juries. We saw the Chauvin case, we saw it on the Roger Stone case. I was in the room for the Roger Stone case when this happened. The judge didn't care in either of the cases.

"We also know that Chauvin had a BLM activist on the jury, lied his way to get on there, didn't care. So the question becomes, the tricky part now for Durham is that he's got to get all of this through a DC jury," he said.
