QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, I read all the words after the film. I found it interesting that the filmmaker went to the government and asked them to explain their position and nobody would appear. Instead, they just threatened NetFlix and everyone else to ban the film in the United States. It was on TV here in Canada. This really exposes how corrupt the entire system truly is and the press just goes along with this corruption. Do you think this will change anytime soon?
ANSWER: The corruption is starting to surface. There is a mysterious memorandum that Trump released that demonstrates the corruption in the FBI, which infects the courts and the Department of Justice. Naturally, the Democrats were against it because it demonstrates the conspiracy between the FBI and the Democrats.
This secret memorandum deals with investigations of the FBI in the Russia affair. Specifically, it goes to the surveillance of Carter Page, a former campaign adviser to Donald Trump. The source used to engage in surveillance of the Trump campaign was the dossier which was funded by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats and has been discredited on many levels. The FISA court which approved the FBI surveillance was never told that the dossier had been funded by the Democrats. This is what is classified as FRAUD UPON THE COURT.
“Fraud upon the court” has been defined by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals as any “attempts to, defile the court itself, or is a fraud perpetrated by officers of the court so that the judicial machinery can not perform in the usual manner its impartial task of adjudging cases.” Kenner v. C.I.R., 387 F.3d 689 (1968); 7 Moore’s Federal Practice, 2d ed., p. 512, ś 60.23. The 7th Circuit went even further stating that “a decision produced by fraud upon the court is not in essence a decision at all, and never becomes final.”
“Fraud on the court is one of the most serious violations that can occur in a court of law. If fraud on the court occurs, the effect is that the entire case is voided or cancelled. Any ruling or judgment that the court has issued will be void. The case will usually need to be retried with different court officials, often in an entirely different venue.
For the official who acted in fraud upon the court, they may very well be required to step down from their position and may even be subjected to criminal consequences like a fine or a jail sentence. It could also result in other serious consequences, such as an attorney being disbarred, or a judge being removed from service.
If a court official is found to be biased or prejudiced even before fraud occurs, they are required to excuse themselves from the case, and a different official must be appointed. In some jurisidictions, a trial tainted by fraud on the court will be vacated or set aside for a certain time period (such as two years), to be “reopened” at a later date. “
Therefore, anyone who tries to hide the memo is conspiring with the FBI and that is actually a crime. We are witnessing the complete meltdown of the rule of law. CNN and the New York Times, of course, spin it to claim there is nothing really here. They are overlooking what was presented to the court and that is no different from an obstruction of justice claim.
